Most cases of anemia in chronic disease are mild cases. Mild cases are not associated with any particular set of symptoms, but in most cases, they are characterized by pale skin, fatigue, shortness of breath, and difficulty concentrating. There are many potential causes of anemia in chronic disease and not all mechanisms are fully understood.
During pregnancy, anemia can lead to the inability to properly deliver oxygen to your tissues and your baby. Mild anemia in pregnancy is normal and can occur simply due to the increase in blood in the body. If more severe anemia in pregnancy develops, this can lead to a prolonged and more severe type of anemia later in pregnancy.
Anemia symptoms can be evident when the body doesn’t produce enough red blood cells, or when red blood cells cannot efficiently deliver oxygen throughout the body. There are numerous potential causes of anemia, such as iron deficiency, vitamin B12 deficiency, anemia of chronic disease, aplastic anemia, anemia associated with a bone marrow disease, hemolytic disease, Sickle Cell Anemia, and others.
UTI’s are common and usually are easily treated with the appropriate antibiotics if diagnosed early. Bacteria around the anal or genital areas can travel to the bladder and cause an uncomfortable infection and UTI symptoms. Anything that brings bacteria in contact with your urethra can cause a UTI and subsequent discomfort.
A rapid strep test involves swabbing the throat to check for the presence of group A Streptococcus bacteria, which can cause Strep Throat and other medical issues (including scarlet fever, pneumonia and heart problems). Within minutes, you can know if your sore throat is caused by bacteria, which requires antibiotics for treatment.
In previous articles we have discussed that “Strep Throat” is a throat infection caused by the group A streptococcus bacteria. Early diagnosis and treatment are crucial for two reasons: one, ‘Strep’ is very contagious and easily transmitted between people in close contact with each other, like schools and offices; two, if left untreated, it can lead to serious complications including rheumatic fever and kidney failure. But what are the signs of Strep Throat? Anyone suffering from the following symptoms should get themselves tested as soon as possible!
