Iron Deficiency Anemia Secondary To Blood Loss (chronic)

Iron Deficiency Anemia Secondary to Blood Loss (Chronic): Symptoms and Treatment

About:

Iron deficiency anemia refers to a type of anemic condition, where adequate healthy red blood cells are absent in blood. Chronic blood loss is a common cause responsible for iron deficiency anemia.

This condition affects almost one-fourth of the global population and accounts for nearly 8.8% of the total global burden of the disease. (1)

- Cannot be self-diagnosed.
- Treatment options are available.
- Imaging and laboratory tests may be required.
- In some cases, it resolves after a period of time, and in other cases, it is an ongoing process of taking in iron supplements.

Iron is an essential component for the formation of hemoglobin. When the presence of hemoglobin decreases in the red blood cells, it leads to the condition of anemia. Conditions such as colorectal cancer, peptic ulcer, colon polyp, or a hiatal hernia leads to the condition of chronic blood loss. Blood consists of iron, so chronic blood loss results in Anemia.

Symptoms

The color of the skin turns pale
Fatigue
Chest pain with rapid heartbeats and breathlessness
Headache
Dizziness
Cold sensation in hands and feet.
Brittle nails
Tongue inflammation
Less or no appetite

Treatment

Self-care: Foods that are rich in iron and vitamin C must be included in the diet.

Specialists: For other concerns, consult a physician. In severe cases, a surgery is suggested by the doctor to remove a tumor or any other protrusion or organ, to prevent loss of blood. At mfine, you will receive a holistic treatment plan for optimum health.
