Cause of Hemolytic Anemia
Autoimmune hemolytic anemia
Autoimmun Rev. 2014. Diagnosis and classification of autoimmune hemolytic
anemia. Uncompensated autoantibody-mediated red blood cell (RBC) consumption is
the hallmark of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA). Classification of AIHA is
pathophysiologically based and divides AIHA into warm, mixed or cold-reactive
subtypes. This thermal-based classification is based on the optimal
autoantibody-RBC reactivity temperatures. AIHA is further subcategorized into
idiopathic and secondary with the later being associated with a number of
underlying infectious, neoplastic and autoimmune disorders. In most cases AIHA
is confirmed by a positive direct antiglobulin test (DAT). The standard
therapeutic approaches to treatment of AIHA include corticosteroids, splenectomy,
immunosuppressive agents and monoclonal antibodies.
Immune mediated hemolytic anemia
After looking at all the helpful herbs, nutrients posted on your site, I was wondering if you have anything successful in the treatment of hemolytic anemia. I have it and sometimes the yellow in my eyes, pigments are very noticeable. Thanks alot and keep up the great work. P.S. - I was placed on B12 / Folic Acid for treatment. Helps slightly.
