Cause Hb Only 9.5 And Keep Dizzy?
Morning … I want to ask … I have been sick for a week. But it has not healed yet, I have already been treated by the health center and the midwife has not yet recovered … My lab results are only 9.5 … My symptoms are getting better. My headache doesn’t disappear, and sometimes I also stand dizzy. Long distance writing sometimes it’s dim, I should consume it so I can recover quickly because I’m still a nursing mother … please advise and answer thanks doctor ..
Hello Princess, Thank you for the question.
Have you checked your doctor for further examination? Midwives do not have the authority to diagnose diseases and provide treatment, especially if there is medical service in the area where you live.
Hemoglobin (Hb) is a protein in red blood cells that functions to bind oxygen. Your Hb level is below normal and this condition is known as anemia. Someone who has anemia will experience symptoms of dizziness, pale, easily tired, weak, dizzy eyes, headaches, difficulty concentrating, palpitations, chest pain, difficulty breathing, insomnia. If this complaint is not handled, of course you will still experience symptoms. Anemia can be caused by various conditions such as:
deficiency of vitamin B12 and folic acid
bone marrow disease
The best step now is to see a doctor as soon as possible. The doctor will ask further questions about your complaint and examine you. The doctor will also conduct further blood tests to find out the cause of your anemia. After making sure, the doctor will provide treatment that is appropriate for you.
While waiting for an examination by a doctor, please do the following suggestions:
avoid excessive physical activity, get plenty of rest
eat regularly, multiply nutritious foods including meat, nuts, green leafy vegetables, cheese, cereals, soy foods
multiply water consumption
Hopefully this information is useful.
