My hemoglobin has dropped from 133 to 120 in 6 months. During that time: stopped eating red meat, had haemorrhoids, been taking daily low dose aspirin and have been dieting excessively. Have these caused it?

My hemoglobin has dropped from 133 to 120 in 6 months. During that time: stopped eating red meat, had haemorrhoids, been taking daily low dose aspirin and have been dieting excessively. Have these caused it?

That is not to say that this is the only explanation for the drop. Serial monitoring of the hemoglobin and appropriate work up is warranted if it continues to drop. ...Read more
