Becarefull : Determine Wheter You Are Anemia Or Low Blood
Most people usually think of anemia and low blood pressure (hypotension) is the same condition. Despite similar symptoms, but two conditions are actually different.
One of the misconceptions that people believed was someone who had hypotension must have thought he was anemic, too. In fact these two conditions are not always interrelated.
Anemia and hypotension have different definitions, making it the second disease is not diagnosed in one. This difference in anemia and hypotension.
Anemia is a condition where a person does not have a healthy red blood cells to carry enough oxygen demand in each tissue and organs, this condition usually starts with a sense of fatigue. Due to the volume of blood is less able to cause health problems due to red blood cells contain hemoglobin which carries oxygen to body tissues.
If these conditions are not handled properly, it can cause complication including fatigue and stress on body organs are not getting oxygen and nutrients.
The symptoms usually varies, usually include fatigue, pale, rapid heartbeat and irregular, shortness of breath, chest pain, dizziness, cognitive disturbances, cold hands and feet and headaches. Originally anemia is so mild and go unnoticed, but over time the symptoms will increase and exacerbate the condition.
Hypotension (low blood pressure)
Normal blood pressure is if you have a systolic (the upper limit when the heart is working) 120 mmHg and diastolic (the lower limit when the heart breaks) 80 mmHg or often referred to 120/80 mmHg.
Well people said to suffer from low blood pressure if systolic pressure (top number in blood pressure readings) is less than 90 mm Hg or the diastolic pressure (bottom number in blood pressure readings) is less than 60 mmHg.
Causes of low blood pressure can be due to dehydration to disturbances in the brain signals that regulate the blood pumping. Low blood pressure can cause symptoms of dizziness to fainting that trigger heart damage, endocrine or neurological disorders.
The symptoms of hypotension is the body to feel dizzy even to feel like fainting, lack of concentration, blurred vision, nausea, body feels cold, pale skin, shortness of breath and fast, fatigue, depression and the emergence of thirst.
Still can sometimes hypotension associated with anemia, such as a person who suffered malnutrition such as vitamin B12 and folic acid can trigger anemia. If there is anemia, the body can not produce enough red blood cells that cause blood pressure to be low or declining.
So it can not be distinguished. Anemia associated with the amount or volume of blood in the body is lacking. While low blood pressure is the force in suppressing blood vessel wall.
