The relationship between hypertension and anemia. Many patients and doctors often think of hypertension and anemia as relatively isolated cases, which results in the loss of the correct diagnosis. If a person has high blood pressure and signs of anemia, the blood creatinine and urea nitrogen should also be checked in addition to the careful examination of hemoglobin and red blood cell counts.
