Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic
Low TIBC suggests you have anemia of chronic disease. Anemia of chronic disease is a blood disorder that results from a long-term (chronic) medical condition that affects the production and lifespan of red blood cells. The anemia will improve when the disease that is causing it is successfully treated. Your treating doctor is perfect judge of your condition. Get investigations done to identify the underlying cause. Dont neglect heel pain as it can also be precipitating cause of your condition. Heavy bleeding may require iron supplements . Consult your doctor for further management. Take care.

Hi i received electrical cardioversion after passing out during a music festival i have had no previous heart problems this was due to drug and alcohol abuse after not eating or drinking water for 20 hours. After the procedure I was not informed of what had happened or given any medication. After researching online it seems i should have been advised to take anti coagulants to minimise risk of blood clots however it has been 4 days and no problems. Is my risk of blood clots high?

I am 35 overweight I was recently diagnosed with chrosis(sp?) of the live non alcholoic type. Which they say best thing is gastric bypass. Well liver specialist just called also saying I was anemic and potassium low. My PCP ran bloodwork recent and potassium was normal yet he said it would not hurt to still take the potassium since it was low 3 weeks ago. My question the meds for being anemic and low potassium if your levels are back to normal will it hurt taking meds. Liver Dr said it woudl not hurt anything. Also dealing with a heart Dr with bloodpressure issues. Can anemia mess with BP?
