Identifying the Link Between Anemia and Uterine Fibroids

Some symptoms attributed to uterine fibroids can negatively interact with everyday life.

Along with prolonged pelvic and lower abdominal pain, uterine fibroids can cause excessive or intense menstrual blood loss, sometimes lasting more than a week. Insufficient red blood cells can be a potentially dangerous medical condition.

The compassionate staff at Georgia Fibroids is sensitive to uterine fibroids' profound and life-changing symptoms. That’s why we offer a safe, effective, and minimally invasive UFE procedure in Atlanta—to resolve your symptoms and help manage your red blood cell count.

You should schedule an evaluation immediately if you suspect fibroids are related to your anemia.

We will examine the relationship between anemia and uterine fibroids

How Do You Get Anemia?

Anemia is a condition brought about by a deficiency of hemoglobin and red blood cells, which oxygenate your tissues. Significant medical consequences can occur when insufficient oxygen is delivered to your organ systems.

There are numerous types of anemia, each caused by a different disorder.

Anemia can be a chronic condition or only last for a finite period. Fibroid-related anemia is typically linked to iron deficiency.

Approximately 70% of the body's iron is located in hemoglobin, the protein contained in red blood cells. Regardless of the cause, blood loss will diminish the amount of iron in your body. Heavy menstruation due to uterine fibroids will sometimes cause this form of anemia.

UFE in Atlanta can significantly reduce heavy menstrual bleeding, helping patients restore red blood cells and reverse anemia.

What Are Anemia Symptoms?

Symptoms of anemia generally manifest in the following ways:

Are Fibroids and Anemia Connected?

Large or numerous fibroids that cause intense bleeding during menstruation can cause or worsen anemia, though anemia doesn't always indicate the presence of uterine fibroids.

If you are experiencing the above signs or symptoms of anemia, having a complete medical checkup is crucial. Anemia is a potentially life-threatening disorder.

While uterine fibroids can be uncomfortable and sometimes debilitating, minimizing and even significantly eliminating painful symptoms is possible. Georgia Fibroids can help treat fibroid-related anemia using advanced outpatient interventions, like UFE in Atlanta.

Furthermore, fibroid therapies supported by iron supplements could abate troubling symptoms.

What Are Effective Treatments for Fibroids and Fibroid-Related Anemia?

The specialists at our fibroid treatment center offer personalized treatment. We will conduct a thorough assessment to ascertain the cause of your symptoms and design the appropriate treatment protocols. Should the cause of your symptoms be uterine fibroids, we will recommend an intervention that best addresses your needs, lifestyle, and goals. Fibroid removal is typically considered the optimal strategy.

In most cases, uterine fibroid embolization offers the highest likelihood of completely eradicating fibroids without radical surgery or requiring a hospital stay. Your medical team at Georgia Fibroids will partner with you to discover the best strategy for treating your fibroids and their accompanying symptoms.
