According to a new study, it was found that weight loss surgery can increase the risk of anaemia by almost two-folds.
The researchers suggested that the patients need to be more conscious about taking nutritional supplements post the surgery, as their digestive system changes after this.
It can also cause dizziness, light-headedness, weakness and heart palpiations as well as brittle nails and headache.
This can lead to iron and vitamin B12 deficiencies and it affects the movement of oxygen to the lungs.
The researchers suggested that after the surgery, there must be a follow-up consultation with bariatric specialists, even after five years. This can reduce long-term anaemia risk.
They also insisted that, the study needs to further explore how weight loss surgery impacts the blood system, as the number of obese people going under the knife has increased significantly.
In this article, we have also listed the other risk factors for anaemia that you need to be aware of. Read further to know more.
1. A Diet Lacking In Certain Vitamins:
Having a diet that is consistetly low in iron, vitamin B12 and folate can increase your risk of anaemia.
2. Intestinal Disorders:
Having any kind of intestinal disorder affects the absorption of nurtrients into the small intestine. This can put you at a risk for anaemia.
Women who haven't experienced menopause have a greater risk of iron deficiency than men or post-menopausal women. This is because menstruation causes loss of red blood cells. This is one of the top risk factors for anaemia.
4. Family History:
If your family has an inherited history of anaemia, then you may be at an increased risk of this condition. This is one of the major risks for anaemia.
5. Other Factors:
A history of certain infections, blood diseases, autoimmune disorders, alcoholism, exposure to toxic chemicals and the use of some medications can affect the red blood cell production and lead to anaemia.
