See below: 1. You need to have your GI ract evaluated for blood loss which can cause iron deficency. Then you need iron replacement. 2. Your leg swelling is probably due to a low albumin. You need to find out why your Albumin is low-it could be a kidney or liver problem or severe malnutrition. You need to discuss this with a doctor. This situation cannot be diagnosed on line.
