Hello Dini, Thank you for the question.
Has your husband checked with a specialist in internal medicine? Has your husband been treated at the hospital? Does your husband experience symptoms of vomiting blood, bloody stools, coughing up blood, or bleeding elsewhere? Does your husband already know the cause of this anemia? Low levels of hemoglobin in the body are known as anemia. Hemoglobin is a structure in red blood cells that functions to bind oxygen. Anemia can be caused by a variety of disease conditions, not all of which can be treated by consuming foods that increase hemoglobin. Furthermore, a very low hemoglobin level (as experienced by your husband) will be treated with blood transfusions, not by consuming food. Anemia that can be treated with food intake is if the anemia is caused by a lack of nutrients such as iron, vitamin B12, folic acid.
A person who has anemia must undergo further tests to find the cause of this anemia. Anemia can be caused by:
blood loss, for example due to bleeding from the body, lack of iron, vitamin B12 deficiency and folic acid deficiency, hemolytic anemia, anemia, aplastic anemia due to chronic diseases and others. Please immediately consult your husband's condition with an internal medicine specialist who treats your husband. The doctor will carry out a series of tests to find the cause of this anemia and provide treatment according to the cause. Treatment for every health condition is not always the same.
Heartburn is a complaint term used to represent complaints originating from the esophagus, stomach and small intestine. Heartburn can be caused by Helicobacter pylori infection, side effects of taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), acid reflux disease, stomach ulcers, side effects of consuming spicy, oily and fatty foods, side effects of consuming caffeinated or alcoholic drinks, stress levels , and others. Advise your husband to avoid consuming these foods and drinks. Also, avoid taking ibuprofen or aspirin. Advise your husband to manage stress well. Try to eat smaller portions but more often. Do not forget to consult a doctor if complaints do not improve with lifestyle changes. The doctor will provide the right treatment for your husband after further tests.
Hope this information is helpful.
