Thanks for contacting Healthcare Magic.

Splenomegaly and low haemoglobin can be due to liver disease or a haematological (blood related) disorder.

Your wife needs a through clinical examination, various blood tests, endoscopy and probably a good physician to plan for a further evaluation.

Best wishes,

Dr Dinesh Singal
