Megaloblastic pernicious anemia
Treatment & Care
Treatment usually involves your child taking an oral dietary folic acid supplement for at least two to three months. If the disorder is caused by an absorption problem in the digestive tract, that may need to be treated first.
Your child's physician may also suggest eating foods that are rich in folic acid and vitamin B12 such the following:
- meat and liver
- green, leafy vegetables
- citrus fruits
