Results Of Blood Tests And Supporting Tests For Anemia?
Good morning, I abdul mw ask 2 questions. Prtm if I check the blood, he said he is fasting 8-12 hours. How about that, for example, I’m fasting for up to 15 hours due to work and lab work? Does it affect the details of the results? R nSecond, if you check for anemia, what are the symptoms besides hemoglobin, which is due to chronic disease and iron deficiency, in essence, do you think I have symptoms of kidney disease and possibly anemia too. So if I check drastically, do I check urea and creatinine and hemoglobin or is there anything else? Thanks for the suggestions that will be given
Hello Abdul, Thank you for the question.
What blood tests do you mean? Some blood tests do require you to fast for 8 to 12 hours, depending on what blood test you are doing. If you do not fast as directed, this blood test will not be accurate.
Anemia is a condition of low hemoglobin levels in the blood. Hemoglobin is a structure in red blood cells that binds oxygen in the blood so that it can be circulated throughout the body. Anemia can be caused by the following conditions:
blood loss due to bleeding iron deficiency vitamin B12 deficiency deficiency of folic acid anemia chronic disease hemolytic anemia and others Anemia sufferers may experience the following symptoms: weakness, fatigue, pallor, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pain, headache, difficulty concentrating. What symptoms are you experiencing? What kidney disease do you mean? The best step you can do is to consult with a doctor directly. The doctor will ask further about your complaint, examine you, and determine the next examination. The next examination depends on the results of the interview and the doctor's examination so that the examination you are undergoing is more focused. You don't necessarily have to undergo the tests that you mentioned above, for example if you have a kidney infection, testing urea and creatinine is not necessary. If it is proven that anemia (from a complete blood count), the new doctor will perform another blood test to find the cause of anemia. Please consult your doctor first.
Hope this information is helpful.
