    Unhappy My Dr says I'm anemic

    My Dr says I'm anemia so she sent me for a Barium enema which I had done on Thursday why would she order this test for anemia also she never told me how anemia
    I was, I had a bad case of ecoli that got in my blood in addition to the urine would that cause the anemia that was in may? I don't have any symptoms to my knowledge so I don't know how I could have goten anemic.

    Depending on the severity of the E.coli, you could have developed anemia. If the intestine wall ruptures you start loosing blood in your feces. Plus you get septicemia since bacteria may enter your bloodstream.

    My guess is they want to now for sure that your intestine has healed. I would have thought that a stool sample would have been enough, but your doctor is being more thorough.
