[QUOTE=annonymousely]hi i have always been very pale, bruise extremely easily (to the point where holding my arm or hand slightly too hard will cause a lot of bruising), often feel dizzy and feel like i am going to faint as everything goes black but i am still consious. I have had blood tests for other things like mono but nothing was ever said about anemia. i also do not eat red meat if this is important. Does any of this sound like i could be anemic? i am female and am in my teens if that helps.[/QUOTE]
Yes it could be anemia, it also could be a variety of other vitamin deficiencies since most of the fat soluable vitamins are dependent on fats to work properly. Vitamin K deficiency will cause easy bruising. Females who are menstruating will often be low on this vitamin. But, if you are able to you need to get a blood clotting time test which lets the doctors know if your blood platelets are doing their job. ITs a simple blood test if you have not already had it. It will help determine if more extensive testing should be done or not.
