How does a doctor know that it’s hemolytic anemia?
Hemolytic anemia may be suspected based general findings from a complete medical history and physical examination, including:
- complaints of tiring easily
- pale skin and lips
- fast heartbeat
Blood tests, urine tests and a full bone marrow exam in which samples of the fluid (aspiration) and solid (biopsy) portions of bone marrow are withdrawn with a needle under local anesthesia may also be performed to confirm diagnosis.
