Treatment For Anemia Sufferers?
Good morning doctor? I want to ask, my HB level is 10.5 and my blood pressure is only 80, every day I feel dizzy and easily tired, with the levels of HB and blood pressure is it dangerous? Please advise and the solution
Hemoglobin in the blood is normally around 12-15 gr / dL (for women) and 13-17 gr / dL (for men). Anemia is a condition in which the body lacks red blood cells or low Hb levels. Hb above 8 is classified as mild anemia, Hb 7-8 is classified as moderate anemia, and Hb below 7 is severe anemia.
Anemia can cause complaints limp, easily tired, pale, dizzy, difficult to concentrate, until palpitations and shortness of breath. Anemia can be caused by many factors, such as iron deficiency, folic acid, vitamin B12, severe bleeding, chronic diseases, and genetics.
Handling of anemia depends on the patient's condition and its causes, for example by giving iron supplements, folic acid and vitamin B12, to administering a blood transfusion if anemia is severe.
As for hypotension, hypotension occurs when blood pressure drops below normal, which is around 90/60 mmHg. Hypotension can cause complaints of dizziness, dark vision, loss of balance, palpitations, until fainting.
I suggest that you take the results of your Hb lab to a doctor and consult the complaints that you are feeling right now so that the doctor can carry out a direct examination to assess your condition. Furthermore, if necessary, the doctor can provide further maximum treatment, for example supplementation, food management, and administration of medicines to reduce complaints that you feel.
In the meantime while waiting for your doctor, you can do the following tips:
Get enough rest
Exercise regularly but don't be too heavy
Consumption of healthy and nutritious foods and multiply vegetables, fruit, beef, nuts, milk and milk products
Don't make sudden movements
Try to wake up from lying down gradually and slowly
Manage stress well
Inadequate body fluid needs
Hope it helps you,
