About Megaloblastic Anemia

Megaloblastic Anemia, also known as imerslund-grasbeck syndrome, is related to thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia syndrome and imerslund-grasbeck syndrome 1, and has symptoms including athetosis and cerebellar ataxia. An important gene associated with Megaloblastic Anemia is CUBN (Cubilin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Metabolism and Diseases of glycosylation. The drugs Mecobalamin and Hydroxocobalamin have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include kidney, skin and neutrophil, and related phenotypes are vitamin b12 deficiency and malabsorption of vitamin b12

Major Symptoms of Megaloblastic Anemia

Megaloblastic anemia is a serious blood disorder that primarily affects red blood cells. It is characterized by a rapid increase in the number of red blood cells in the blood, leading to anemia. Some of the major symptoms of megaloblastic anemia include a rapid fatigue, pale skin, shortness of breath, dizziness, and an increased heart rate to compensate for the increased blood volume.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with Megaloblastic Anemia

Suitable lifestyle options for people with Megaloblastic anemia include:

1. Balanced diet: Patients with Megaloblastic anemia need to consume adequate protein, iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid. It is recommended that foods such as red meat, chicken, fish, beans, whole wheat bread, chicken liver, milk, eggs and green vegetables be included in the diet.

2. Supplement folic acid: Patients with Megaloblastic anemia are prone to lack of folic acid, so they need to supplement folic acid. It is recommended to take in 400 micrograms of folic acid every day, which can be obtained through food or oral folic acid supplements.
