Hemoglobin hematocrit and red blood cell low counts and glucose and nitrogen high what is cause

Numbers are numbers: Lab results are numbers, and numbers are just numbers. They have little meaning without looking at the whole person. Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, and red blood cell counts means blood cells are not being made fast enough, are being lost (through bleeding), are being broken up, or any combination of such problems.

A 48-year-old member asked:

49 year old with serious nasal congestion, really bad when lying down. Have had this problem for a while?

Dr. Vance Harris
Family Medicine 37 years experience
Seek treatment: Infection can cause congestion as well as bad allergies. There are medicines for both. We have many different medications for severe nasal allergies so see your doctor to know what treatment would be right for you. When you lie down the pressure in the veins of your nasal passages is higher and the congestion is usually worse. That is normal.
