Fat loss can be due to the reduction of body fat, which occurs with weight loss.
The body can make cells to produce energy by burning glucose. When the body doesn’t have enough glucose to make energy, it must use fat as an energy source.
People with anemia have an abnormally low level of the enzyme glucose dehydrogenase, which metabolizes fat from carbohydrates to form energy.
When you eat, your body must remove all of the fat cells, but it does not make energy from the fat cells it already has. The glucose from the carbohydrates in food is used instead for energy. This is how anemia can cause weight loss.
Fat cells become thinner as the blood glucose level reduces, and fat is stored away until needed. The body needs energy to keep them working. However, when cells are short on glucose, there is an imbalance between the energy the body needs from these cells and how the body uses the energy.
People with anemia may need regular glucose testing to monitor their glucose levels and to be sure they have enough energy. If the problem is not corrected, they may experience complications such as low blood pressure or kidney problems. Some people may have to take insulin in addition to their glucose levels.
If you feel you are losing weight or gaining weight while you are on a medication for anemia, see your doctor. It is worth discussing alternatives to medication.
Why is anemia a complication?
The anemia of obesity is sometimes confused with the anemia of anemia in the elderly. The elderly are at high risk of having anemia symptoms, especially anemia caused by low blood glucose levels. They have been found to be at higher cardiovascular risk in the long term and their heart conditions may be weakened.
People with diabetes are at special risk because of type 1 diabetes. This is a disorder of the body’s cells that results in low blood glucose levels. It is not life-threatening, but can result in fatigue during a long illness, problems with blood sugar control, and death.
In older adults, the body cannot make enough insulin to get blood sugar levels as high as other people’s. Over long periods of time, this puts the diabetic individuals at an increased risk of developing anemia and other complications. People with type 1 diabetes have a normal level of blood sugar, but it is too low for most other people.
If you experience symptoms such as headache, nausea, vomiting,
