Anemia In Neoplastic Disease
Fifth's disease: Fifth disease, also known as erythema infectiosum, is a viral illness caused by human parvovirus B19. Parvovirus B19 commonly causes a “slapped-cheek” rash on the face and, less commonly, fever, headaches, sore throat and joint pain. In some cases fifth disease can cause anemia. In healthy individuals, this anemia is mild and only lasts a short period of time. ...Read more
Iron and B12: Anemia with Crohn's disease can have more than 1 cause as both iron deficiency and B12 deficiency are common as is anemia of chronic disease. First and foremost, you need to get your Crohn's disease under control. Second, a daily iron suppliment (325 mg of ferrous something) and a daily B12 suppliment (1000mcg) generally will do the trick. Occasionally B12 injections are needed. ...Read more
If you mean....: Is the beta globin gene transmitted on a sex chromosome (either x or y), the answer is no. The beta globin locus is autosomal, and classical sickle cell disease (hgbss disease) displays autosomal recessive inheritance. Boys and girls are equally likely to inherit the beta-s allele from an affected or carrier parent, and if they inherit a beta-s allele from each parent, they will have disease. ...Read more
I have anemia of chronic disease. She told me my level was 100. Level of what? What is normal? Is at a little low or a lot?
Level: I need more information. I do not know what your level means either without the labs. ...Read more
Cooley Anemia: Cooley's anemia aka beta thalassemia or mediterranean anemia. It is a complicated set of disorders resutling in the underproduction of beta globin chains and subsequent underproduction of hemoglobin and the associated anema. ...Read more

I've just been diagnosed with Coeliac Disease. I'm in process the of cutting gluten from my diet - when will symptoms (pain/anemia/etc) disappear?
Takes time: The disease involve antibodies triggered as a fluke by gluten that attack your intestinal tissues as if it were an invading germ. Stop ingesting gluten & antibodies quit forming & those you have can gradually disappear. You can heal as the intestine restores itself. Be vigilant in reading product labels. Gluten is in many things. Beer, whiskey, soy sauce & many other items contain trace amounts. ...Read more
No: You have to be very careful about taking herbal- as sometimes you don't really know what is the ingredient. Anemia of chronic disease- is a type of anemia where is caused/related to chronic diseases that you have- for example- kidney disease, diabetes, liver disease etc. Growth factor like erythropietin/epogen can be used in anemia of chronic disease. Importantly to manage the chronic disease. ...Read more
I have a disease of chronic anemia of redblood cells deficiency & size disorders- please ehat is the best diet & food for me?
I eat flour all the time. Will this affect my life? For example pica disease or anemia? Also do you think I crave flour because I may be anemic?
Pica: Ye there a very good possibility that you are anemic because of your pic. Consult your doctor for blood work ...Read more
Erythropoietin: The kidneys make a hormone called erythropoietin which travels to the bone marrow and tells it to make red blood cells. If the kidneys are diseased they sometimes do not make this hormone and the person will become anemic. Always remember there are many reasons a person can become anemic- kidney disease is only one way. ...Read more
Pain vs weakness: All anemias if bad enough will cause fatigue, weakness, lightheadedness, or shortness of breath with exercise. Sickle cell disease patients are anemic and have these issues, but also have episodes of pain that can occur anywhere in the body (sickle cell crisis) as an additional problem. ...Read more
Not much: Sickle cell disease is seldom subtle. Patients have intermittent periods of intense pain, often in bone, they have all manifestations of profound anemia, including diminished exercise tolerance, shortness of air, generalized fatigue, etc. This is a very bad disease with few subtle manifestations. ...Read more
Yes: The defect of sickle cell anemia occurs when 2 sickle cell genes are passed to a newborn. Since each parent passes half their genes at conception & it takes 2 sickle genes to cause disease, one gene comes from each parent. Many parents carry this gene quietly, unknown to them because it doesn't make a single gene carrier sick. ...Read more
Genetics: Sickle cell disease must be inherited from both parents. Sickle cell trait (1 sickle gene, 1 normal gene) is usually asymptomatic. 2 persons with sickle cell trait have a 1/4 chance of having a child with sickle cell disease, but the parents are often unaware that they have anything. ...Read more
My husband and I are both carriers of sickle cell anemia. What are our chances of our children exhibiting this disease?
25%: If both of you have sickle cell trait then each of you has one normal beta hemoglobin gene (a) and one with the sickle cell mutation (s). Your children will inherit one beta globin gene from each of you for a total of two. Therefore for each child that you have, there is a 25% chance of sickle cell disease (ss), a 50% chance sickle cell trait (as), and 25% chance of normal hemoglobin (aa). ...Read more
Is it possible to be diagnosed with sickle cell anemia at 43? Even without ever experiencing any symptoms of the disease?
Possible, but...: Most people will have symptoms of enough severity to be diagnosed before adulthood. That being said, there is variation in the severity of sickle cell disease, most likely due to a number of other genes that modulate the symptoms. Thus, it probable is quite rare, but there could be that individual with a particular genetic makeup that has minimal disease that goes undiagnosed. ...Read more

Can 5ths disease cause anemia in toddlers? She has 5th rash and bloodwork from 3yr check up 2wks ago says she has mild anemia, it it caused by 5th
See below.: Anemia can be caused by 5th Disease, although there could also be a concurrent other cause for the anemia, so I wouldn't say for sure that's what it is from. Most toddlers don't get very ill from 5th, if they are otherwise healthy. You should speak to her doctor about other causes to be ruled out, for example, iron deficiency. ...Read more

If my boyfriend has sickle cell anemia and I don't have neither the trait or disease, will our child end up having it?
No: If your boyfriend has sickle cell anemia (2 abnormal genes) and you have 2 normal genes, then your children will all have sickle cell trait but none will have the disease. You need to be sure you have no other blood abnormalities like thalassemia or hemoglobin c trait which can be totally asymptomatic; this would change the answer significantly! ...Read more
Can 5th disease cause anemia in a 3yr old? Has the rash now and 2weeks ago she had her 3yr checkup and bloodwork said she has anemia, is it from 5th?
Anemia in CKD: Chronic kidney disease (ckd) anemia is caused by the diseased kidneys not being able to make the hormone, erythropoietin (e). E stimulates the bone marrow to make new red blood cells. Epogen (epoetin alfa) is a man made drug that replicates e's affects on the bone marrow and is given to both CKD and dialysis patients to treat their anemia. ...Read more
