Depend of the cause: Treatment for anemia ( low hemoglobin/hematocrit) has to be directed to the underlying cause/etiology of the anemia. Many things can cause anemia eg- bleeding, iron deficiency, deficiency in other nutrient, red blood cells destruction, drug induced, bone marrow failure, other red blood cells disorder etc. See you doctor and have further evaluation. If complicated- see a hematologist to help you.
