Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Skin that looks pale or yellow does not always indicate anemia. There are also people with fair skin types that tend to look pale or yellow when in fact they are in good health.
Anemia is a condition in which the level of hemoglobin in the blood is lower than normal. The causes can be classified into 3, namely:
Bleeding, for example due to gastric ulcers, hemorrhoids, injury Inadequate production of red blood cells, for example due to lack of folic acid, iron deficiency Excessive destruction of red blood cells, for example due to thalassemia, sickle cell anemia, etc. Anemia will not only cause the skin looks yellow or pale, but sufferers will generally experience weakness, easy drowsiness, difficulty concentrating, dizziness, cold sweats, palpitations, and even decreased consciousness.
To establish the diagnosis of anemia, an objective examination is needed, namely through a blood test, to assess the level of hemoglobin in the blood. In addition, other tests, such as a peripheral blood smear, etc. may also be needed to determine the cause of the anemia.
The examinations above are important to do to rule out other diseases that often have clinical symptoms resembling anemia, for example:
Hypotension (low blood pressure) Dehydration (lack of fluids) Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) Heart disorders Liver and bile disorders Panic attacks, etc. Therefore, before making conclusions too early, you should first check with your doctor. anemia, the doctor will evaluate what the possible cause of your anemia is, how severe it is, and also what kind of treatment is appropriate to overcome it.
In the meantime, make sure you drink enough and eat healthy and nutritious foods, especially those rich in folic acid, iron, and vitamin K. Exercise regularly, sleep regularly, and don't stress too much. Live a healthy lifestyle, namely by avoiding alcohol, cigarettes, and illegal drugs.
Hope it helps ya..
