What may be the reason for anemia not responding to iron supplementation?

What may be the reason for anemia not responding to iron supplementation?

Different types: There are hundreds of types of anemia, which are divided into three categories - anemia caused by blood loss, by faulty or decreased red blood cell production, or by increased destruction of blood cells. If the anemia is due to excess blood loss such as ulcers, hemorrhoids, cancer, use of nsaids, menstruation, childbirth etc, it is important to treat the underlying cause of anemia first. ...Read more

I have anemia and get really bad headaches. Can that be the reason for the headaches? What can I do to relieve the pain?

I have anemia and get really bad headaches. Can that be the reason for the headaches? What can I do to relieve the pain?

Yes.: Severe anemia can be associated with headaches. The most important issue is identifying the cause of the anemia and correcting it. If anemia is the cause of the headaches, proper treatment will take care of them. The most common cause ina premenopausal female is iron deficiency. If that is the situation, you have taken iron, and are not improving, you need to see a hematologist and/or ob-gyn. ...Read more

B12 deficiency: I think you mean "pernicious anemia." it is caused by deficiency of vitamin b12, which causes anemia, but also can cause dementia and peripheral nerve damage with numbness and balance issues. It is not due to not getting enough B12 in the diet. It is a malabsorption problem where the B12 you eat doesn't get into your system. Treatment requires B12 by shot, nasal spray or under the tongue. ...Read more

Iron 27, TIBC is 437, Transferin Saturation 6. Does this show Iron Defeciency Anemia? And a reason for some fatigue? Should I be taking iron?

Are you anemic?: You are anemic if and only if you hemoglobin is low, but iron deficiency can make you tired before anemia happens. These labs say "iron deficient", most likely. If this is from very heavy periods and/or non-supplementing vegetarianism, iron supplements are in order, but the cause needs to be found first -- even at your age, it's a bleeding ulcer or stomach cancer until proved otherwise. ...Read more

Does moderate doses of zyprexa (olanzapine) and cipralex used for depression in an elederly person be the reason behind anemia? Urgent please

Does moderate doses of zyprexa (olanzapine) and cipralex used for depression in an elederly person be the reason behind anemia? Urgent please

Maybe.: Zyprexa (olanzapine) can cause leukopenia, neutropenia and agranulocytosis. The concomitant use of zyprexa (olanzapine) and escitaprolam (cipralex) in modest doses does not necessarily mean that these combinations cause anemia. Try to investigate other causes of anemia, or if the anemia is severe or life threatening, discontinue one of the medications, preferably zyprexa (olanzapine). ...Read more

I had unexplained anemia in 2009, I understand this is unusual for a male, they put it down to my diet, can that simply be the reason? I'm worried stil

It's possible: When a man over age 50 develops iron-deficiency anemia, doctors are trained to think about colon cancer, which can cause silent blood loss. But if your anemia went away with a change in your diet, it was probably due to your diet! Lack of folate (folic acid) from leafy green vegetables, or lack of vit b12, can also cause anemia. Follow-up with your doc to make sure your anemia has resolved. ...Read more

Some adults with sickle cell anemia have high levels of fetal hemoglobin. Any reason for this?

Epigenetics and drug: We know that sickle cell patients that have increased Hemoglobin F typically have less sickle cell complications. This is the basis for using Hydroxyurea in sickle cell patients. Some individuals have elevated Hemoglobin F levels due to differences in the genetic region of the beta and gamma globin genes that prevent the normal shutting-off of the gamma globin gene. This leads to increased HGB f. ...Read more

I haven't hit puberty and im 16, I had/have mild iron deficiency anemia, is this the reason why I haven't hit puberty? I have a poor apetite as well?

I haven't hit puberty and im 16, I had/have mild iron deficiency anemia, is this the reason why I haven't hit puberty? I have a poor apetite as well?

Not likely: Mild iron deficiency can cause a variety of symptoms by stopping puberty altogether is not one of them. The process requires the input of hormones & target tissue in the body. Failure to enter puberty by 14 in girls & 15 in boys requires an evaluation by a pediatric endocrinologist. Seek one out (and take some iron anyway). ...Read more

Can anemia make my period shorter? (i had a one day period, bled once only) my haemoglobin came out to be 6.3, is this the reason for my short period

Can anemia make my period shorter? (i had a one day period, bled once only) my haemoglobin came out to be 6.3, is this the reason for my short period

Short & long story: Your short period at 6.3 hemoglobin may be a "survival" mechanism for this "long story". When the blood level of red blood cells plunges to this low level, your ability to carry oxygen to the peripheral tissues diminishes greatly. As a result mother nature will try to "conserve" red blood cells lost during your period. I hope you are seeing a md to find the cause and are taking an iron supplement. ...Read more

Could anemia be a reason for my missed period?

Did you have sex.: If you had sex since your last period, pregnancy needs to be ruled out and you should do a pregnancy test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully.
If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex.

Too much testing is: It is not a good idea to keep doing all sorts of tests which may not be relevant because they can only mislead you. If you have trouble breathing, get a lung specialist (pulmonologist) to check you and make sure you do not have asthma or airway allergy. ...Read more

What other medical tests can I do to find out the reason for extreme fatigue at young age? Tested for anemia, thyroid problems, had heart echo &ecg

What other medical tests can I do to find out the reason for extreme fatigue at young age? Tested for anemia, thyroid problems, had heart echo &ecg

No tests: Your situation warrants an in-person evaluation, however, your fatigue may be a symptom of depression. One way for you to help yourself is to start exercising. It may sound counter-intuitive, but gradual exercise, as tolerated will make you feel better.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

I was prescribed iron pills but chose to stop, is it bad to have anemia and have low levels of iron? If so, what's the worst that can happen.?

Iron deficiency: Low iron makes you tired, pale, lightheaded, and short of breath. It can cause 'pica' (craving something unusual). The most common symptom is munching ice. Additional symptoms include foggy thinking, poor hair and nail growth, itching, and restless legs. Pregnant women with low iron can have children with lower iq scores than if they had adequate iron stores. ...Read more

Why am I always very tired? I know it has to do with anemia but if I took iron pills will I stop being tired?

Possible: Fatigue is a common symptom of anemia. If you are truly anemic due to iron deficiency (there are also many other causes of anemia), repleting your iron stores through iron supplementation and diet can correct the anemia. This could cure your fatigue. The only way to know is correct your anemia, and then see how you feel. If you don't feel better after this correction, need to look for other causes. ...Read more
