Reply to "Anemia common/serious with Jpouch?"

Orthostatic hypotension isn’t generally a diagnosis, but rather a symptom. For someone with a J-pouch it would usually be a sign of dehydration. Hydration status can definitely make anemia seem to come and go, at least if it’s measured crudely. Since the red blood cells don’t go away (or appear) quickly, they become more concentrated as hydration drops.
