Causes And Overcome Low Levels Of Hemoglobin In The Blood?
Tonight I want to ask. When I was in 8th grade, I checked my HB. The device immediately got an error, cmn there was a low writing. Then I am now in high school and yesterday I took a free HB check. When taking the blood that was checking I had trouble until I had to press my hand. I who see pain feel squeezed. Then when checked the results are 3,4. I also feel sorry to check that I panicked afraid of the error of the tool. Finally my hand was squeezed again mistaken for lack of blood samples. And when it was checked again it even dropped to 3.1. Said my friend hb until 3 was not there. Is it true that my hb 3 or the device is indeed an error? I also feel symptoms of general anemia such as dizziness, fatigue, not being able to be exposed to the sun for a while, my heart beats faster and faster even though I only walk less than 1 km, sometimes shortness of breath or shortness of breath, like eating ice stones, nails often break themselves, my head feels spinning “when I woke up and now I often lose weight even though I’m not on a diet and feel the more weight I get if I walk. Guess “like that I’m anemic or enter a certain type of anemia? Thank you, sorry long 😂
Hello Omer, thank you for the question.
Anemia is a condition where the human body does not have enough hemoglobin levels. As you know, hemoglobin is the main part of red blood cells that function to bind oxygen and carbon dioxide. This hemoglobin is what delivers oxygen to cells and takes carbon dioxide from cells. Low hemoglobin levels in anemic people cause the body's cells to not receive enough oxygen. The symptoms that you feel indeed seem quite possible as a symptom of chronic anemia. Except for the habit of often eating ice cubes, these habits have absolutely no relationship with anemia.
Anemia is diagnosed by examining hemoglobin levels in peripheral blood and if necessary, peripheral blood smears are also performed in the lab to see the shape and composition of blood cells under a microscope. HB assessment is done in a quick way like you do, or done in a more complete way in the lab. There are several possibilities of the occurrence of a low HB value that you experience:
Inspection tool that doesn't work well.
Improper inspection procedures.
Your HB value is indeed low.
Regarding whether there is a hb value of 3, the answer is, yes, it is very likely that someone with chronic anemia has a hb value of 3. Based on the time the anemia is divided into acute and chronic. Based on hb values, divided into mild, moderate, severe. HB value 3 is severe anemia. If indeed your HB value is 3, then your anemia is likely to be chronic, and you will look very pale or yellowish, very weak lethargic so that it disrupts everyday life, and easily hurts.
You should consult a doctor. The doctor will do blood tests in the lab to get more accurate results and find out the type of anemia. You need to know that there are many types of anemia, for example iron deficiency anemia, bleeding anemia, folate deficiency anemia, aplastic anemia, anemia due to chronic diseases, and so forth. Meanwhile, limit strenuous activities, increase animal and vegetable protein intake, increase consumption of various types of vegetables and fruits. Do not take any medicine without doctor's advice because different types of anemia will also be different. Thus our review, hopefully useful. Regards.
