Hello … my mother’s HB is low, blood transfusion is also, but why after coming home from the hospital, her HB dropped again ??

1 Answer:

Hello Bagas,

Thank you for the question.

Normal levels of Hb (hemoglobin) in adult women range from 12 to 15.5 grams / dL. If your mother's Hb level is less than this, she can be classified as having anemia. Hb itself is a protein in red blood cells that has an important role in binding the oxygen and distributing it throughout the body. Therefore, if your Hb level is low, your mother may look pale, limp, tight, heart palpitations, excessive sweating, often drowsy, experience mental confusion, and may even decrease consciousness.

Many factors can cause anemia, the most common are:

 Bleeding, including excessive menstrual bleeding, peptic ulcers, hemorrhoids Red blood cell production decreases, such as due to malnutrition (especially lack of iron, folic acid, and vitamin B12), disorders of the spinal cord Destruction of excessive red blood cells, such as due to hemolytic anemia, splenic disorders, etc. Blood transfusion can help to increase low Hb levels, but does not resolve the cause. To detect the cause, a comprehensive examination is needed, for example interviews, physical examinations, blood tests, spinal cord examination, and so on. Depending on the cause, the handling given can be different.

Overcoming anemia often can not be done in a short time. However, our advice, if indeed your mother's anemia does not heal after being treated by a doctor, check her back to the doctor or doctor of internal medicine so that further treatment is given ..

At home, so that the anemia improves, you can first give your mother lots of red meat, whole grains, sea fish and dark green leafy vegetables. Not only that, let your mother drink more, rest, and accompany her to live a healthy lifestyle in her daily life. Without a doctor's advice, do not carelessly give him any medicine or supplement huh ..

I hope this helps.
