Please answer the rest of the questions

Detailed Answer:
Hello again,

Iron pills should be taken if there is a documented deficiency. Anemia could be a cause for the tiredness. Tiredness alone should not be an indication for using iron pills.

Detailed Answer:
hi,

Cardiac causes like Congestive cardiac failure and ischemic heart disease can be possibilities. Lung disease like COPD, asthma could also be the cause. As mentioned earlier anemia could also be the cause. Unless the cause is identified treatment cant be initiated as these have different treatments and management lines all together. Please state your Ejection fraction if you have had a recent Echocardiogram, done. Also answer these questions, asked previously.
What exactly were you treated for ?
Please list all the medications that you are currently using ?

Thanks.
