Handling Of Anemia?
My mother is 61 years old now in the hospital, only 6 days in HB lab, do I have to be transfused? Then can medication just go for it? thank you
Anemia is a condition of red blood cell deficiency. Anemia can be caused due to lack of nutrients (iron, folic acid, vitamin B12), heavy bleeding, chronic diseases, autoimmune, genetic, and malignancy.
Normally Hb levels are 12-16 g / dL for women. Mild anemia if Hb 8-12 gr / dL. Moderate anemia if Hb is 7-8 g / dL. While severe anemia if the Hb is less than 7 gr / dL.
Handling of anemia will be adjusted to the patient's condition. In general, blood transfusions are done if anemia is severe or if the hemoglobin level is 7-10 g / dL with signs of organ damage. If anemia is mild, the doctor can provide medication for outpatient care according to the cause of the anemia.
For your mother's condition, I suggest that you discuss again with the doctor who treated her and you should follow the advice of the doctor who treats it.
While waiting for a consultation with the doctor, your mother should get enough rest, avoid strenuous activities, and multiply the consumption of foods containing iron, folic acid, vitamin B12, and vitamin C, such as green vegetables, meat, nuts, cereals, dairy products, and various fruits. However, the type of food needs to be adjusted to your mother's medical history, for example if you have a history of diabetes, cholesterol, hypertension, gout, and other conditions if available. Your doctor can give advice on the recommended daily nutritional intake for your mother after an examination.
Hope it helps you,
