Can Hemorrhagic gastritis precipitate hemolytic anemia.

Yes: You have to figure out why you are bleeding into your stomach and if there are any other places where you are bleeding and why and if you are making sufficient replacement blood and if not why not. This can be orchestrated, at least at first by your doc, and if things get really messy by a hematologist. Good luck! ...Read more

Maybe: Surgery carries the potential risk of complications. Things like obesity, heart disease, and severe anemia can increase your risk for surgery. Some doctors may choose to start a medicine called depo lupron (leuprolide) to shrink the fibroids and increase your blood count prior to surgery. The average age of menopause is 51. Your symptoms may go away on their own very soon. Please discuss risks w/ a doctor. ...Read more

13 year old daughter has HEAVY bleeding (bleeding through overnight pads in 2 hours).  RBC 3.81, hemoglobin 11.2, hematocrit 32.5.  Mild Anemia?

It happens: A likely cause would be a teens failure to release eggs in early menses which allows the estrogen dominated buildup of menses producing tissue.Periods can be heavy.At this age and with this presentation the worst it would be is a platelet or bleeding disorder like Von Willebrand disease which can remain silent until early menses.

Why my blood count drops so quickly during pregnancy while my ferritin is >UNL? I'm at high risk for antepartum/postpartum hemorrhage (had IV iron due to the bleeding risk and IDA diagnosis prior to preg). Why do I still have anemia without iron/b12/folat

Why my blood count drops so quickly during pregnancy while my ferritin is >UNL? I'm at high risk for antepartum/postpartum hemorrhage (had IV iron due to the bleeding risk and IDA diagnosis prior to preg). Why do I still have anemia without iron/b12/folat

Inflammation?: I would think about this being secondary to anemia of chronic disease. Ferritin can be an acute phase reactant, essentially being indicative of ongoing inflammation; inflammation that can act as a mechanism for speeding up loss of red blood cells...Also look into your MCV. High MCV I would look into thyroid dysfunction. Pregnancy hemorrhage --> Panhypopituitarism --> Low thyroid --> Macrocytosis ...Read more

Can you die from anemia?

Can you die from anemia?

Yes, depending on ..: Severity and intervention. Hematocrits can fall to where o2 delivery is insufficient to support organ function, particularly the heart, which must work even harder due to severe anemia. Death can occur. If anemia develops slowly, patients can compensate to even very low hematocrits, but then precipitously decompensate. In contrast, rapid development may preclude compensation w/ grave consequences. ...Read more

What would cause anemia.

Hundreds of causes: It takes me an hour as a medical school lecturer just to basically rattle off the list. Heads up -- if you are iron deficient and eat a reasonable amount of meat (despite the disinformation, vegetables are poor in iron), you're likely losing blood possibly into the gut from serious disease. Don't let them miss it. Any physician can begin the anemia workup. Good luck. ...Read more
