What is the question: Please rephrase your question to get a better answer. Please discuss in detail with his hematologist. The fact that hematologist gave the iron- means that your hematologist thinks there is a component of iron deficiency. So, continue iron and f/u with your md. However, it does not fit exactly with macrocytosis. Other work up still needs to be done to see explanation for macrocytosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My hemo is 7.7, ferritin 0, iron 16, and iron saturation 4 and just had 2 units of blood. No heavy menses or apparent blood loss. What's going on?
Can be Many things: There are many reason why to have iron diff along with anemia. It could be simply a very sever form of iron difficincy anemia which result from malabsorption, inherited forms of Iron diff. It can also be related to poor iron intake, especially if you are strickly veggie. Blood loss can result also in this-can be from GI. Many other causes and its limited space, hope you feel better and this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

U R seriously sick: This is probably iron deficiency. Even if you are a non-supplementing vegetarian, there's almost certainly something seriously wrong. You have a bleeding stomach ulcer or stomach or colon cancer until proved otherwise. Get with a competent, evidence-based physician now. It's a mistake to try to diagnose anything from a bunch of labs, however abnormal. You're a person, not a bunch of numbers. ...Read more
For 57+ F with Hb 10.6, RBC 3.6, Pt 1.2L & ESR 51 while normal MCV & MCHC, does Ferritin 35 [4 - 204] indicate iron deficiency or haemolytic anemia ?
My ferritin level (15) dropped low (from 152) and tibc (471) is high, but iron is normal (71) and hgb remains slightly high (17.5). Iron deficiency?
Wbc 13.2 RBC 4.73 hemoglobin 10.2 hematocrit 33.8 mvc 72 MCH 21.6 mchc 30.2 RDW 16.2 platelets 816, 000.Thoughts?Should i be worried with the platelets
Probably reactive: You are anemic and the numbers are suspicious for iron deficiency. If you are a healthy 34 year-old who menstruates regularly, you could easily be low in iron. The plaelet count is very high, but is likely reacting to the low iron and should come down if it is replaced. The elevated white cells (WBC) is not as easy to understand. Inflamation, infection, other? Could use more info. Good luck. ...Read more

It happens sometimes: Many women have occasional variation of their mucus discharge, some spotting between periods, a heavier period, a lighter period, a longer or shorter period, or even a missed period. Having one or two of these symptoms doesn’t necessarily mean there is a medical problem, but a visit to one’s primary care or ob-gyn doctor is a good idea if symptoms are persistent, recurring, or worrisome. ...Read more

Change meds: Make sure your thyroid level has been normalized with the proper dose of brand name T4 such as synthroid (thyroxine). Stop the cytomel. It can be dangerous and there is no way to check to see if you're on the correct dose. Your anemia may need further evaluation once your thyroid is stabilized. ...Read more

Passed out briefly w/ auditory hallucination, blurry peripheral vision foggy mind for past week, bloodwork ok but carbon dioxide level 19. Causes?
Unknown: We are much better at answering what DID NOT cause such an event than what did. Follow your doctor's recommendations regarding referrals for such things as cardiology and neurology referral. If your doctor is saying that these aren't indicated, I'd ask him/her what the diagnosis is to explain this event. ...Read more
Several factors: Several factors determine oxygen saturation. These include the amount of oxygen you breathe, the ability of the lungs to extract oxygen, the amount of red cells to carry oxygen, the ability of the heart and blood vessels to deliver oxygen to tissues, and efficiency of organ to use oxygen, any problems affecting these can cause low saruration. Treating a disease, exercise, supplemental o2 may help. ...Read more
No: Any oxygen saturation above 90% is ok, but most healthy people have oxygen sats between 95-100%. But, even being 94% can be normal. Oxygen saturation varies minute to minute, so one simple measurement may not give the whole picture. Moreover, pulse oximetry can be notoriously inaccurate, so make sure the measurement is truly accurate. But, in general, 95% saturation is great. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

No: 92% is not severely abnormal but is abnormal for someone who is otherwise healthy and as young as you. Note that pulse oximetry is not perfect technology, however, and may not always be accurate. ...Read more
Safe is > 90%: Oxygen saturation is the % saturation of arterial blood with oxygen. Normal for people without lung or heart disease is usually greater than 95%. 85% is too low. If you have an oxygen saturation of 855 you need to see a doctor immediately even if it means going to Emergency. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How can my oxygen saturation on my tester at home put it on it said 90% started freaking out quickly went to 97% how is this ?
I have an oxygen saturation reader at home I put it on it said 92% but within Five seconds went to 97% and staYed at 97% why is this?
Normal.: Because the machines are not always precise or accurate. They can be misled by a variety of factors. Don't use the meter to check your pulse either. They generally measure for 6 seconds and multiply by ten so that pulse seems to vary wildly. ...Read more
Oxygen Saturation: Red blood cells contain protein called Hemoglobin. Most of the oxygen in the body is attached to the hemoglobin. Oxygen saturation refers to proportion of red blood cells whose hemoglobin is bound to oxygen. It can be measure by pulse oximetry or by sampling blood from an artery. ...Read more
Are you sick?: Any measured finding has to be correlated with your condition. If you feel fine, then these values are okay. Do you smoke? If you feel bad: have shortness of breath, cough, fever, chest pain, etc. and if you repeat them and the numbers are the same, then you should get seen quickly. Either value can be normal, or indicate a problem, depending on what is going on at the time you measure them. ...Read more
Yes, generally : Speaking. Spo2 refers to any oxygen saturation obtained by using pulse oximetry, the type of absorption spectrophotometry - that is why "p" is added. It will reasonably accurately show the percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin in the individual's blood at the wide range of inspired oxygen concentrations - from room air to a 100% o2. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Shortness of breath: ...Is caused by many abnormalities in the body, not simply low o2 levels. Some patients can have significant shortness of breath from copd, pneumonia, asthma and other illnesses without a low o2 level. If you continue to have trouble, you should see a doctor for evaluation to figure out why this is happening. ...Read more
