Case Study-NSG 315
Mrs. Anderson is a 70-year-old that has been married for over 40 years and has three adult children. Mrs. Anderson worked as a librarian most of her adult life and retired from her career 15 years ago. She has a past medical history of occasional knee pain after long walks. Mrs. Anderson walks her dog every morning and enjoys having lunch with her friends Mondays and Wednesdays.
At the age of 70, Mrs. Anderson started noticing generalized weakness, fatigue, and an unexplained weight loss of 10 pounds over three months.

mean corpuscular volume (MCV) of 130 μL
hematocrit (HCT) 25%,
hemoglobin (Hgb) 7.9 g/dL.
Suspecting pernicious anemia, her Primary Care Physician ordered a Shilling test.

She currently returns to her Primary Care Physician every month for her vitamin B12 injections.
