Answer

Other causes for fatigue, tachycardia, and dyspnea should be considered. Other causes for anemia should be ruled out. A transfusion requirement in the absence of blood loss or bone marrow aplasia would suggest hemolysis.

Go to Anemia, Iron Deficiency Anemia, and Chronic Anemia for complete information on these topics.
