26/F..above reports suggestive of 28 weeks pregnancy with iron deficiency anaemia. WHO says below 10 as anaemia but normally below 9 considered for detailed investigation in preganancy. anaemia seen due to haemodilution and negative iron balance in body during pregnancy. if below nine,< 30 weeks of pregnancy considered oral iron therapy plus diet. can increase the dose of feronia xt for bd in such cases. if below 9 remains after 30weeks then mostly advisable for parenteral iron compounds Frankly speaking nothing worrysome in this case looks.its normal. gynecologist takes proper care of such cases. u can be free from anxiety.

Continue Iron supplementation. Diet rich in Iron should be advised. I don't think she needs parenteral iron as it is only 28 wks.

Valuable opinion

Inj ferous ascorbate
