Differences In Hypertension And Anemia?
Hello, every time I finish PM I always feel dizzy and I know it’s anemia. But after being given blood booster medication, I also felt dizzy and even nauseous. I ask for an explanation
Hello Ayu, thank you for the question.
Anemia or lack of blood is a term often used to describe the lack of red blood cells that contain hemoglobin to carry oxygen throughout the body. Symptoms that can occur include fatigue, weakness, decreased appetite, pale, dizzy, dizzy, headache, palpitations, sweating, cold hands and feet, and others. Anemia can be caused by several things, including:
Iron and vitamin deficiency
Chronic diseases, such as tuberculosis, malignancy, and others
Anemia due to disorders of the bone marrow
Hemolytic anemia, because the breakdown of red blood cells that occur faster than production
Anemia due to other diseases, such as thalassemia, malaria, and others.
Some factors that can cause a person at high risk of developing anemia include:
Lack of consumption of foods containing iron, vitamins, and folic acid
Family history of anemia
Menstruation normally does not cause health problems, but if the amount of blood that exceeds normal will cause anemia. Therefore, in anemia due to menstruation the doctor will usually provide blood boosting medication containing iron, folic acid, or vitamin B12. In some people, these drugs can cause side effects, such as iron side effects that can occur such as digestive problems such as stomach pain, nausea, diarrhea, and constipation, black bowel movements, and reduced appetite. While the side effects of vitamin B12 supplements and folic acid that can occur are dizziness, headaches, and nausea. These drugs are generally safe when used as directed by a doctor and do not cause high blood pressure. Therefore, complaints that you experience after consuming blood boosting drugs may be a side effect of the drug. However, you should consult your doctor again if the complaint is disturbing, the doctor will ask for complaints, physical examination, and maybe a supporting examination if needed such as a blood test.
Some things you can do to reduce complaints include:
Consumption of foods that contain lots of iron, folic acid, and vitamin B12. For example red meat, green vegetables, beans, milk, cheese, cereals, etc.
Take blood booster supplements as directed by your doctor
Eat foods that contain lots of vitamin C, such as oranges, apples, mangoes, melons, tomatoes, etc.
To reduce nausea, blood added tablets can be consumed while eating or before going to bed with water or fruit juice
Sufficient fluid needs
Thus, hopefully useful.
