Hi I have very low iron (17) and ferritin (2) so I am anemic. I have also had A prothrombin time test where inr and pt come back high, drs don’t know why yet. I’ve had extensive dental work done in the past and the last time I was at a dentist they couldn’t get my gums to stop bleeding, it was a scary and traumatic experience. I now need my wisdoms extracted, a molar extracted and a deep cleaning along with a few fillings. Any advice on any of this on how I should proceed? I’ve been putting it off for a long while as I am afraid of bleeding to death!! Thanks!
Concerns regarding quality of life should be addressed: impairment of function at school, work, or in personal relationships; social and emotional support; financial resources; and adequacy of patient education regarding their disease (13). Anxiety and major depression are more prevalent in patients with IBD than in the general population, and these conditions are more pronounced in patients with greater ongoing disease activity (72, 73). Besides providing indication for specific therapies, these psychiatric diagnoses may also predict the likelihood for medication noncompliance, a frequent contributing factor to poorer clinical outcomes and greater health-care costs (74–76).
