Could a serotonin or dopamine deficiency in one's blood cause depression/anxiety? Or are the blood ser. And dop. Unrelated to the ones in brain?
Unrelated: Assays for serotonin and Dopamine in the blood are not reliable indicators of these substances in the brain's synaptic spaces. You may be offered these assays by "independent medical thinkers", but you would not do well to rely on them. Depression and anxiety are biopsychosocial phenomena and must be addressed as more than "chemical imbalances" -- their many aspects are all important. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Let me help: Anabolic steroids, which stimulate red blood cell production carbon monoxide poisoning, congenital heart disease in adults, copd, dehydration, epo doping (injections of erythropoietin (epo) to enhance athletic performance), heart failure, hemoglobinopathies (conditions present at birth that impair the oxygen-carrying capacity of red blood cells) and others.

If I have had water, food, etc. From plastic containers my whole life, any way to check if there is any toxicity in me due to plastic? Blood test or ?
Probably not yet: It is possible to test for plasticizers in urine, but i don't think it's been validated. Especially when it pertains to doping testing in sports to look for prior transfusions. Testing is available, but i don't think there is a clinical application yet. Off course, testing is available to evaluate products for permissible plasticizer levels. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not sure.: Not sure what you mean. Your blood is the concentration it is. And it is that way for good reason. It is optimized. You really can't change concentration unless you really dehydrate yourself or get a transfusion a la lance armstrong blood doping. ...Read more
Below: Your body may increase red blood cell production to compensate for any condition that results in low oxygen levels, including: •Congenital heart disease in adults •Heart failure •A condition present at birth that reduces the oxygen-carrying capacity of red blood cells (hemoglobinopathy) •High altitudes •COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and other lung diseases •Pulmonary fibrosis •Sleep apnea •Nicotine dependence (smoking) Performance-enhancing drugs Certain drugs stimulate the production of red blood cells, including: •Anabolic steroids •Blood doping (transfusion) •Injections of a protein (erythropoietin) that enhances red blood cell production Increased red blood cell concentration •Dehydration (If the liquid component of the blood (plasma) is decreased, as in dehydration, the red blood cell count increases. This is due to the red blood cells becoming more concentrated. The actual number of red blood cells stays the same.) Kidney disease Rarely, in some kidney cancers and sometimes after kidney transplants, the kidneys might produce too much erythropoietin. This enhances red blood cell production. Bone marrow overproduction •Polycythemia vera •Other myeloproliferative disorders ...Read more
They only did emg on my arms and the tech said it didn't look like anything was affecting it but I had the numbness in my toes feet legs. My pcp has no clue what to do just keeps doping me up. Im pretty sure its gbs. If I do to a hospital they can diagnos
EMG/NCV of legs: It sounds like you need an emg/ncv study of your legs in order to determine if you may have a polyneuropathy or nerve root dysfunction. Would also recommend complete blood work to r/o diabetes, thyroid disease and vitamin deficiencies i.e. B12, d, folate etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Myelodysplasia: Myelodysplastic syndrome (mds) is a disease that is associated with decreased production of blood cells. Blood cells are produced in the bone marrow, and the blood cells of people with mds do not mature normally. There are three major types of blood cells—red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. Patients with mds can have decreased production of one, two, or all three types of blood cells. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
