Yes & No: Depending on the cause anemias can be resolved. Simple anemias related to nutrirional deficiency (low iron or vitamins) can be resolved with replacement therapy. Anemias due to autoimmune problems or infections get better when underlying problems are treated. However, inherited anemias or bone marrow failure states are often not curable but treatable.
