20 Golesbura Reaister-Moil, Golesbura, III. Thursdoy, Oct. 17, 1963 THB DOCTOR SAYS Doctor Must Determine Cause of Chronic Anemia By W. 0. BRANDSTADT, M.D. Newspaper Enterprise Assn. <&—!• there such a thing as chrdnic anemia? What are the symptoms? What causes it and is mere any way to control it? A—There are several kinds of chronic anemia as distinguished from the acute form that occurs due to a hemorrhage. Chronic anemia may be due to a deficiency of iron, vitamin B- 12 or other essential elements. The onset is gradual and the symptoms may consist of weakness, sore tongue, numbness or tingling of the fingers and pallor of the skin and mucous membranes. Because there are several forms, you should have a careful study including microscopic examination of your red blood cells. Your doctor can then prescribe medicines you need to control the condition. Although persons with leukemia usually develop some degree of anemia, anemia is never given as the diagnosis in such persons. Leukemia is a malignant disease of the blood believed to be a form of cancer and is characterized by an overabundance of white blood cells. Anemia is not a form of cancer and is characterized by a deficiency of red blood cells and hemoglobin (the red coloring matter in these cells). Persons with anemia frequently have a low white cell count, also. Q—I am troubled with hoarseness due to mucus on my vocal cords. As I do a lot of singing this is a great handicap. Can anything be done to relieve this? A—You should be examined by a throat specialist to rule out cancer of the larynx. This is fairly common and is not easily detected by your family doctor. If no cancer is present, one of the best remedies is the inhalation of steam with or without tincture of benzoin in the water. In order to be successful, you should have the steam kettle or generator on the floor and sit over it with your head draped with a bathrobe or sheet, thus forming a steam tent. If you do this for 15 or 20 minutes two or three times a day you should be able to sing like a canary. Q—My doctor says I have valvular heart disease and take digitalis. What is this medicine supposed to do and how long must I take it? A—As a result of rheumatic fever or some other infection, you have a scarring of a heart valve. This causes some leakage or back flow with each heart beat. Digitalis has a specific action on the heart causing it to contract more slowly and more forcefully. This helps to compensate for the leakage. Although your doctor may want to adjust the dosage from time to time, you will have to take digitalis or some closely related drug indefinitely, unless it is decided that you are a fit candidate for surgical repair of the scarred valve. Please send your questions and comments to Or. Wayne G. Brandstadt, M.D., in care of this paper. While Dr. Brandstadt cannot answer individual letters, he will answer letters of general interest in future columns.
