Low blood can be due to either a leak in your body or a decrease in production activity. Think of the blood as the amount of water in a bath tub. The level of blood will decrease as you open the drain and while the faucet is shut down. For iron, low iron from frequent heavy cramps. Low B12 & folate due to poor nutrition. Go see your family doc regarding your concerns.

you should go to see a hematologist to get more work-up to find out the cause of your polycythemia and you definitely will need to get phlebotomy now. if this is a bone marrow problem- phlebotomy is the treatment. if this is caused by other conditions- like lung, kidney/liver problems, drugs etc- the treatment is to fix the underlying condition. go to see a hematologist-or ER if you have symptoms

Multiple causes


If she's only 21 years old and has anemia, the source of her anemia needs to be discovered and corrected. Most commonly in females, it it is due to heavy menstrual bleeding. Either way, anemia of any source can cause hair loss. Given her anemia, she should have her iron levels checked And possibly take iron supplements if needed. Similarly low thyroid hormones can cause hair loss.

Needs iron supplemen


Your son seems to have an iron deficiency anemia and needs iron supplement. Iron rich diet does not provide enough iron to elevate his hemoglobin level and replete iron reserve. Check with his pediatrician.
