Is it just because of old age that my grandmother has to get blood transfusions every three months?
My grandmother has been having to get blood transfusions about every three months. They said it was because of her being old. Is this true?
No, needing regular blood transfusions is never a routine treatment for old age. Although blood transfusions aren't unusual, getting them on a regular basis is rather uncommon.
If you and your grandmother don't understand why she's receiving a blood transfusion every three months, perhaps you or another family member can accompany her on her next doctor's visit to get more information about what's happening with your grandmother's health.
