Hi Mary,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Need to be clarified beforehand, are you running a certain diet? Do you eat other foods besides vegetables and fruit? When was the last time you visited the doctor for a pregnancy check-up? How is your pregnancy?

As a result of a series of changes in their bodies, pregnant women tend to experience physiological anemia (low blood hemoglobin) and hypotension (low blood pressure). This happens because the mother experiences an increase in blood volume and dilation of blood vessels to accommodate the growth of the fetus. In addition, excessive nausea and vomiting can also cause the mother to experience iron deficiency which can also trigger anemia.

Normally, when pregnancy has entered the second trimester, hemoglobin levels range from 9.7 to 14.8 grams/dL, while normal blood pressure is above 90/70 mmHg. So, at a glance from the information you convey, it is possible that the condition you are experiencing can no longer be said to be physiological. Therefore, it is necessary to re-evaluate, are there other conditions (other than pregnancy) that cause it, for example:

Causes of anemia: Bleeding, for example due to gastric ulcers, hemorrhoids Decreased production of red blood cells, for example due to iron deficiency, folic acid deficiency Increased destruction of red blood cells, for example due to sickle cell anemia, thalassemia Causes of hypotension, for example due to heart problems, dehydration, side effects side effects of drugs, diabetes, neurological disorders, sepsis, anaphylaxis, etc. Fasting is not prohibited in patients with anemia and hypotension. As long as you are sure that you are able to meet your nutritional and zairan intake at suhoor and iftar time, and the condition of the fetus in your womb is good (that is, healthy and developing according to gestational age), fasting is okay. However, if you are pregnant, you need to pay more attention to its impact on the fetus. This is because anemia and hypotension during pregnancy can reduce the supply of nutrients and oxygen that should support the growth of your fetus.

Therefore, to determine if there are other conditions that are causing your anemia and hypotension, you should immediately consult a gynecologist directly. In addition to a physical examination, doctors will generally also perform supporting tests, such as laboratory and ultrasound. That way, it can also be known whether it is safe for you to fast, and what fasting tricks should be done.

Meanwhile, in order to help overcome anemia and hypotension during pregnancy, you should always make sure to eat and drink enough and nutritious food. Be active and do pregnancy exercises, avoid immobility. Also avoid smoking, alcohol. and excessive stress.
