Cause And Often Dizzy?
I have been dizzy for almost a month, my doctor said I was lacking blood. But I’m afraid it will get worse …
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Blood deficiency is a general term to describe the condition of anemia which is actually a deficiency of hemoglobin in red blood cells. Hemoglobin in red blood cells has the function of binding oxygen and circulating it throughout the body. One symptom that can be found from anemia is indeed dizzy. Other symptoms that can be found include feeling tired easily, faster heart rate, especially during activity, shortness of breath, difficulty concentrating, pale skin, etc. To be able to diagnose anemia, a blood test must be performed.
Have you done a blood test and have you found a low hemoglobin? If from a blood test found low hemoglobin, it is necessary to look for the cause of the anemia again. There are various causes of anemia, for example iron deficiency anemia, chronic disease anemia, hemolytic anemia, anemia due to acute bleeding or chronic bleeding, aplastic anemia, folate deficiency anemia or B12, and many other causes of anemia. Management for each type of anemia can be different.
You should consult more deeply with the doctor who examined you directly. Your doctor will recommend further blood tests to determine the cause of anemia. Mild anemia conditions are generally not dangerous, but if the anemia that occurs is severe anemia (Hemoglobin less than 7 g / dL) then therapy must be done immediately. You can be advised to do a blood transfusion. Prolonged anemia can also cause other complications in the heart, so the cause of anemia must still be found and managed.
Consult further with your doctor to find out the type of anemia you have, the causes, and the necessary management.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
