An ulcer is a lesion on a body surface (outer or inner) in which the epithelium and at least some of the underlying connective tissue has been lost specifically to necrosis (cell death) rather than just mechanical or chemical injury.

Yes.: A bleeding ulcer could cause iron deficiency anemia (low red blood cell count). If the bleeding is severe and persists for a while, red blood cells will be small (microcytic) and have relatively less oxygen-carrying hemoglobin (hypochromic). Thanks to m.

See rheumatologist!: It sounds like you are having a horrible time! You don't say what kind of specialists you have seen. Be sure to see a rheumatologist, and if no help there, a hematologist. If you have seen both these types of docs, then get a second opinion for each type. Some conditions are harder to diagnose than others! Good luck and hope you find answers and proper treatment soon! ...Read more

Ulcer/infection: Vitamin B12 requires intrinsic factor secreted by the stomach in order to be absorbed. If enough of the stomach cells have been damaged by ulcers, a lack of intrinsic factor secretion could lead to a decreased absorption of B12 and pernicious anemia. Infection with helicobacter pylori can lead to chronic gastritis which can also lead to both ulcers and anemia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I cough or choke up blood it comes up my esophogus and then i get real bad heart burn. Is it anemia or an ulcer?
If they have a gastric ulcer or one in the duodenum, can they have pernicious anemia due to the stomach of duodenum being destroyed somewhere?
Possibly.: Pa is associated with antibodies that attack cells in the stomach. Besides interfering with B12 absorption, the stomach can develop atrophic gastritis, an inflammation of the stomach that results in the loss of all glandular tissue and scarring of the stomach. But ulcers are not a sign of this, and definitely not duodenal ulcers. The B12 problems come first, other stomach issues later. ...Read more

Test for H pylori, +: H pylori bacteria are a common cause of peptic ulcers.A 2-week treatment can get rid of it, and eliminate recurrence. Gastric bleeds will give heme positive stools. But the anemia may be from hemolysis caused by exposure to something which causes acute hemolysis (busting open of your fragile red cell membranes) in G6PD deficiency. Serum free hemoglobin will be high. Learn what you must avoid! ...Read more
