My wife’s has anemia. What questions I need to ask my doctor?

My wife’s blood test report shows that she has anemia. What are the questions that I need to ask my doctor? Can someone please guide?

First of all, you don’t really need to panic whatsoever. Here are a few questions that just sprins on top of my mind:
What tests need to be done to diagnose the condition and to determine the cause?
What type of anemia is it?
How serious is this type of anemia?
Has any permanent damage been done?
What treatment will you be recommending?
Will you be prescribing any medications?
What are the side effects?
Will treatment need to be continued for life?

Frankly speaking these are just a few of the questions. There may certainly be more.  
You should probably get in touch with an expert and go for some professional treatment. Most of the times, my hubby refers to *********** for all our health issues to get a second opinion. Maybe you should give it a shot as well.
