Brief Answer: Requires Further Transfusions Detailed Answer: Dear Friend Welcome to XXXXXXX After reading your query i can interpret that she has 1. Diabetic Nephropathy (kidney disease) 2. Acute on Chronic Liver Disease. Her hemoglobin is low because of 2 reasons : 1. Diabetic kidney disease causes anemia due to reduce production of Erythropoetin. 2. Coagulopathy of Chronic Liver Disease , as her liver is unable to produce sufficient amount of factors that are required for normal clotting of blood. I can not comment upon the treatment part as i have not seen the reports , don't know about her general condition , vitals. I can just tell you , that she may require Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP) , which contains coagulation factors. And at Hb of 6.3 further blood transfusion is required. I hope i am able to solve your query , still you want to ask any thing , please ask me. Wish her a speedy recovery.
