HB Is Low?
Good morning, thanks for the question
Anemia is a condition of low hemoglobin levels which plays a role in the transport of oxygen to cells. There are many types of anemia and require detailed evaluation to find the cause of anemia. One classification is based on the results of peripheral blood smears to assess the shape of red blood cells. Anemia with normal size red blood cells is called normocytic anemia.
The causes include:
1. Chronic illness
2. Endocrine deficiency, such as hypothyroidism
3. Kidney failure
4. Hemolysis anemia due to excessive red blood cell breakdown
5. Enlarged lien
6. There is bleeding
In addition to complete symptoms, a thorough physical examination and additional examinations need to be done. Additional tests that need to be done depend on the suspicion of the results of interviews with symptoms and physical examination, such as examination of suspected kidney disease, then creatinine serum tests are performed, or if suspected of breaking up red blood cells, LDH, bilirubin, or reticulocyte counts are performed. If the results of the examination are still unclear the cause, then the possibility of chronic disease or bone marrow suppression is considered. In some cases a bone marrow biopsy is recommended. After the exact cause is known, then appropriate treatment can be planned.
Consult the doctor who treats you again because anemia cases require a careful diagnostic approach to determine the cause.
That's all, hope you can help.
