In brief: See below

1. You need to have your GI ract evaluated for blood loss which can cause iron deficency.
Then you need iron replacement. 2. Your leg swelling is probably due to a low albumin. You need to find out why your Albumin is low-it could be a kidney or liver problem or severe malnutrition. You need to discuss this with a doctor. This situation cannot be diagnosed on line.
