  • Is she having hemolysis?One can lose blood through the kidneys and it's detected by a urine hemosiderin test.

  • She could also loose blood in her stools. If her stools have not been checked it needs to be done ASAP. A friend of mine had blood in her stools due colon cancer and she was only in her 40's.

Please help!!!!!!!What symptoms did she present with? Why did they determine she needs blood and how did they determine that? What was the result the first time? What are her normal medications? Does she have any diagnosis? We need more info in order to help you.
