How To Raise The Hemoglobin Down For 5 Months In Diabetics?
In the afternoon I want to ask how to increase the HB in people with dry diabetes? Hb cm 8, already 5 months. Thank you
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Anemia is a condition where a person has low levels of red blood cells, and this is characterized by hemoglobin which is also low from the results of routine blood lab tests. Whether it's in people with diabetes or not, the causes of anemia can be divided into the same causes, which are:
Due to lack of blood production, for example due to abnormalities in the spinal cord, where red blood cells are produced, it could also be due to a lack of iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid as ingredients of red blood cells
Because there is bleeding, for example because after giving birth, because there are injuries to the stomach, accidents and so forth
Because of the increased destruction of red blood cells, namely in chronic diseases such as cancer, hemolytic anemia, sickle cell anemia, and thalassemia
So the way to increase the Hb is the same, namely by knowing in advance what the cause is, then being dealt with. If due to bleeding, the bleeding is sought and then stopped. If due to lack of nutrients such as iron and folic acid, supplements are given, if due to cancer then chemotherapy, transfusion and surgery are performed.
Apart from that, actually with Hb 8, usually a person does not need to do a transfusion and is sufficient to administer fluid infusion, unless the Hb cannot rise after other treatments for a long time. For this reason, we recommend that you consult the patient with a hematologist or internist, for further examination and the cause of the anemia to be investigated. If you have already done that and still the Hb is only around 8, ask the doctor who treats the patient, what next steps are taken, and whether it is necessary to be referred to a more complete hospital. But the point is, the examination is very necessary because the treatment cannot be generalized.
Meanwhile, what can be done is to keep patients feeling energized, fulfilled nutritional needs, consume lots of fluids (except if they have experienced kidney failure), and regularly consult a doctor for diabetes complaints they have. So, hopefully answering your question.
