Answer

One should monitor the hemoglobin level, reticulocyte count, indirect bilirubin value, LDH level, and haptoglobin value in patients with hemolytic anemia to determine the response to therapy. Urine hemoglobin and hemosiderin should be monitored to evaluate recovery in patients with severe or intravascular hemolysis.
