Is blood transfusion a solution for low hemoglobin?
I (male) have been diagnoised with low hemoglobin (9.0) due to a recent loss of blood (ulcer). I am feeling really tired and was told by my family Doctor that it would be a slow process to regaining my normal degree (12.0 -14.0) Can I request a blood tranfusion?
Hi, dear. I have gone through your question. I can understand your concern. But till possible you should avoid blood transfusion. Hb level 9 is low but not an indication for blood transfusion. You should take oral or injectable iron. Because there are many risks of blood transfusion. So consult your doctor and take treatment accordingly. Hope I have answered your question, if you have doubt then I will be happy to answer. Thanks for using health care magic. wish you a very good health.
