anemai caused by hypercoagulation

Starting in 2011 my blood work has shown I might be anemic. After many follow up tests I have been told I have hypercoagulation and need to take aspirin every day. I am having a hard time understanding the relationship between hypercoagulation and anemia or whether this is my actual issue. I do read there are more detailed tests about hypercoagulation but I do not think they put me through them. I have had multiple types of blood work and all GI tests. The GI tests were negative and these are the blood work items that I am out of range on : RBC 4.22,Hemoglobin 13.1,Hematocrit 38.1Protein-C 69. I also tested positivie for the MTHFR mutations. These are the
items that I tested high on: dPT 43.9,Anticardiolipin Ab,lgM,QN 18. I am normal for iron,b12 and folic acid. I guess I have a general distrust for some doctors just jumping to conclusions but does hypercoagulation seem plausible and if so, how does it create anemia?

I'm prone to anemia and also deficient in protein c. No one has ever suggested to me that this could be related, but I guess it's possible.

Anyway, here's one other person who has issues with both anemia and coagulation. Smile Can't help you any more than that, hopefully someone else will respond with something more useful.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
There is no such link but your blood profile doesnot show low hemoglobin that is indicating anemia.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
