Hi Rara, thanks for asking on HealthReplies.com. Previously I would like to inform you that fever is a condition where the body temperature exceeds 38 degrees Celsius. Fever can occur due to the body's immune process against infections due to viruses, bacteria, or parasites or other conditions due to hormones, drugs, or malignancies.
Hb (hemoglobin) is a protein found in red blood cells. The main function of hemoglobin is to bind the oxygen we breathe from the air and as a means of transporting oxygen throughout the body. A person is said to have low Hb or anemia based on normal Hb values according to age and gender. In general, a normal hemoglobin level in women is in the range of 12-15 g/dl and in men it is in the range of 13-17 g/dl. The causes of a decrease in Hb are nutritional deficiencies, bleeding, pregnancy, and chronic diseases.
LED or Edimentation Rate is the rate at which red blood cells settle in the test tube with units of mm/hour. The LED test is generally used to monitor the presence of inflammation or infection in the body.
Conditions that can occur in your sister are:
Malaria is a disease that spreads through the bite of a mosquito infected with the Plasmodium parasite. Symptoms that are often caused are fever chills, sweating, vomiting, and muscle aches. The life cycle of this plasmodium parasite also affects red blood cells which results in the breakdown of red blood cells so that there can be a decrease in Hb.
Tuberculosis (TB) or TB is an infectious disease caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Most tuberculosis infections attack the lungs but can also attack other parts of the body such as the brain, blood circulation system, and others. This disease is transmitted through the air when a person with TB coughs, sneezes, or talks. Classic symptoms include cough, weight loss, fever, and coughing up blood. Sometimes TB disease has no classic symptoms and causes non-specific symptoms.
3. Dengue fever
Dengue fever is a disease transmitted by the bite of the Aedes mosquito infected with the dengue virus. This disease usually occurs in the rainy season and has early symptoms in the form of fever, reddish spots on the skin, headache, nausea and vomiting.
Typhoid or typhoid fever is a disease caused by infection with the Salmonella bacteria ingested by the patient. Patients usually begin to feel unwell 7-14 days after infection accompanied by abdominal pain, diarrhea, and high fever up to a temperature of 39-40 degrees Celsius. The pattern of fever rises and falls in the morning and after that a high fever in the afternoon or evening.
5. ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura)
ITP is a disease with immune disorders that affect platelets or platelets (parts of blood that function in blood clotting). This condition causes a person to easily bruise or bleed excessively. ITP can be caused after a viral infection or for unknown reasons.
To find out the overall condition of your sister's health condition, it is highly recommended that your sister be re-examined by a pediatrician or an internal medicine specialist if your sister is over 14 years old. The doctor will conduct an examination in the form of questions, physical examination, and supporting examinations such as laboratory tests and other examinations if needed.
