Handling Of Anemia That Never Heals?
HealthReplies.com! I want to ask,. I am a woman, aged 20 years, from elementary school I have been diagnosed by a doctor that I am anemic, but only through checking the eyelids and tension, my HB is always low until I go to college. I have tried to live healthy by cycling every day and diligently on foot, my staple food turned into potatoes, vegetables, and eggs. On the other hand I also patterned to consume mineral water. But why yes, my body is soft (often told and ridiculed by high school-college friends), and blood pressure tests always show me low blood ,, entering the high school-college phase my hair is also very easy to fall out (medium), even though I already use a tonic. Also on the body I like to appear rashes. Please explain and input. thanks.
Thank you for the question.
Anemia is different from low blood pressure (hypotension). You are said to have anemia if the hemoglobin level in your blood is low. Ideally, anemia is diagnosed after a blood test. However, at first glance you could be suspected of anemia if your face and eyelids look pale, experience weakness, excessive cold sweat, fatigue, frequent sleepiness, heart palpitations, shortness of breath, rapid pulse, and many other complaints that refer to conditions that are related to anemia. Hair loss can also be a symptom of anemia, especially anemia due to iron deficiency.
Your body that feels soft, actually does not always refer to a disease. Due to genetic factors, obesity, or lack of exercise can also make the body feel softer due to lack of muscle mass compared to body fat. Likewise, hair loss, in addition to anemia, this condition can also occur purely due to improper hair care, stress, scalp infections, genetic, and hormonal fluctuations. As for your low blood pressure, it needs to be confirmed again, is it really low or not optimal. Someone just said to have low blood pressure if the blood pressure is less than 90/60 mmHg. If your blood pressure is still above that value, it means that your condition does not include low blood pressure (hypotension). Rashes on your body can arise due to minor causes, such as insect bites, allergies, irritations, or skin infections, but can also arise due to more serious conditions, such as blood clotting disorders, blood cancer, and so on.
The good, you check your condition directly to a doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that a comprehensive examination, including blood tests, x-rays, and so on if necessary. That way, if it is true that your condition arises due to an illness, of course the doctor can give you the right treatment. In the meantime, you can continue your good habits in living a healthy lifestyle, including by sleeping regularly, eating a variety of nutritious foods, drinking more, not stressed, exercising regularly, and also avoiding cigarettes and alcohol. Do not forget, wash your hair with a special anti-smoking shampoo, and always keep your scalp clean.
I hope this helps.
