BP Fluctuations?: How do you feel? Yes is it normal 4 blood pressure 2 go up + down. Blood pressure is related 2 blood flow + the needs of the cells + body organs 4 nutrition, oxygen + removal of metabolic waste. •Feel well? •eat well •exercise •rest •recreation •blood pressure / pulse in "normal range"? •blood flow will also be normal •blood pressure will change in •related 2 body position + activity.

Should I bank my baby's cord blood?

Yes: That's actually a great idea. Stem cells from cord blood can be used to treat a number of conditions in both the child and other family members, and the number of such uses is growing exponentially.
Dr. Michael Thompson

I would suggest public banking. 1) cheaper (free), 2) provides utility for a broader group of people than just your child or family.

Dr. Herbert Duvivier

I agree with both the above comments. Given the increasing use of stem cells I don't believe you can go wrong.

Not necessarily. Cord blood banking is quite expensive and the number of disorders for which the cord blood may be used later is quite small. If you have the financial means then it is a good idea . However, cord blood allografts (from unrelated donors) are becoming more common with good results so always donate but don't fall prey to scare tactics in banking cord blood.

Whom should I tell that I am taking blood thinners?

Dr. Ankush Bansal

All Drs, NPs, PAs: You should tell all your healthcare providers and be sure they are aware whenever you are prescribed a new medication or change in dose. The most common blood thinner, warfarin or coumadin, is a tricky medicine that interacts with many medicines. This could affect the potency of the other medicine and/or the thinness (measured by the inr) of the blood.

I have hemochromatosis - can I donate blood?

No: Unfortunately, the red cross does not allow this blood to be donated even though there is nothing wrong with the blood. However, certain bacteria thrive on iron and that may be the red cross's rational.
