Low HB And Very High Sedimentation Rate During Pregnancy?
Good afternoon doctor, I am lily, 46 years old, I just checked myself into the lab because from the results of my blood check at the blood donor, it turned out that my Hb was low, only 9, and after the 2nd examination my Hb was still low, and the sedimentation rate I am also a height of 35 from the 25mm / hour limit.
The LED (Sedimentation Rate) is the rate at which red blood cells settle in the blood test tube. Sedimentation rate is often associated with inflammation or infection. Increased LED can be normal in pregnancy conditions or abnormal can occur in:
there is inflammation in the body
The LED examination alone cannot determine a condition or disease being experienced, it must be adjusted and seen also from the history / question and answer process of patient complaints, and also see other blood results, or other examinations.
Low HB is also known as anemia. This condition can be caused by many possibilities, including:
deficiency of certain substances, such as: iron, folic acid, vitamin B12
Thallasemia, is a blood disorder that is genetically inherited
To determine the exact cause, you should check with a gynecologist directly, because it must match the symptoms, physical examination results, blood tests with the necessary supporting examinations to determine the cause and establish the diagnosis.
Uterine myomas may be the cause of low HB if there is also an inflammatory process or if there is bleeding outside of menstruation or a lot of bleeding during menstruation. But it could also be low HB and high LED that you experience due to other things that can be seen from the follow-up examination.
some of the things you can do:
multiply the consumption of green vegetables and fruit as a source of minerals and vitamins
drink a lot of water
check your condition further, also check the last size of your Miom to a gynecologist
