mother with extemely low hemoglobin
My 77 yr old mother was hospitalized a week ago as she needed a bld transfusion. Her hemaglobin was at 78( range above 125 normal)
after the transfusion she was upto 98,she stayed in the hospital to fine out what is causing her hemaglobin to be so low.
Tests done were ultrasound(legs and abdomen),Ct scan( body) all normal, colonoscopy done 6mos ago (normal) doing stool samples and barium enema.
A week after having the transfusion she has dropped down again( not sure how low but docs concerned)
Ok, she has diabetes,graves disease, emphyema( O2 24/7) , high bld pressure.
Does any one have any ideas???
