Deepa's Story

My name is Deepa, 27 years old. My native place is near  Salem. I shifted to Coimbatore for work. I was feeling very  tired often for a long time. I could not do my normal activity  itself. My husband scolded me continuously because of my  inability to do my day to day work. I consulted many  doctors and they said that my blood level is low. They  insisted me to take a blood test. I did not have time and  necessary support to go to a hospital far away from my  home. The amount required for the test also bothered me. So I  continued living with my problems. Recently, I came to  know that the Isha Rural Health Clinic, Muttathuvayal was doing  blood tests at a low cost. So, I went there and the doctor insisted I take a blood test, which I did. The results  came and I had a Hb level of 5.9 g/dL. The doctor told, “How you are even walking with this level  of Hb? Because the normal Hb level for women is 12 to 15 g/dL.” She gave iron and  multivitamin syrup and also nutritional supplements. She explained to me about nutritious food. I am recovering now and I feel much brisker than before. This is all thanks to the Isha Rural Health Clinic with its lab facility at low cost and also the doctors' caring towards the patient.
