Thanks for you query.
If you say her to be your friend doing something very odd and detrimental, that is removing blood from the body, but not telling the Doctors, it is your moral duty to tell this in private to the attending Doctors hence further management can be taken well.
This is the only ways if hte Doctors are missing on this point in spite of hte obvious puncture marks from the site of withdrawal.
I hope I have made the point clear.
You too must be knowing the detrimental effects if someone is withdrawing so much of blood.
