Cause The Body Is Easily Weak And Cold?
Excuse me, I am a teenager aged 18 years, from the age of 17 I felt weak, tired, easily cold, even for contact with water I was afraid, because it was cold. Why is that? Am I lacking blood or what?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fatigue, fatigue, and cold can indeed indicate anemia (lack of blood). Anemia itself in the medical realm is interpreted as hemoglobin (Hb) levels that are less than normal). Anemia can occur due to various factors, such as lack of nutrition, bleeding, destruction of excess blood cells, disruption of the spinal cord, and so on. In addition to the complaints that you feel, anemia can also make you look pale, cold sweat, difficulty concentrating, easy drowsiness, heart palpitations, rapid pulse, can even experience a decrease in consciousness.
It could also, besides anemia, your complaints are caused by a viral or bacterial infection, hypotension (low blood pressure), hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), hormonal disorders (eg hypothyroidism), heart problems (such as weak heart, heart rhythm disorders), chronic illnesses, mental disorders (eg depression), and so on.
Your condition, given its occurrence has been around long enough, should not be taken for granted. Consult yourself directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine to be given the appropriate treatment. The handling of a doctor may vary depending on the cause of your complaint. Usually, if you suspect anemia, your doctor will direct you to undergo laboratory tests, or also other supporting tests to rule out other possible diagnoses.
At this time, you should:
Eat more regularly, a little but often
Drink at least 8-10 glasses per day
Don't get used to staying up late, but don't also sleep too much
Calm your heart and mind, avoid excessive stress
Wear clothes that are comfortable and warm when the body feels cold
Do not carelessly take any medicine if not prescribed directly by a doctor
Hope this helps ...
