Bone Marrow Diseases Low Blood Count Anemia
Bone marrow is the flexible tissue found in the interior of bones. In humans, red blood cells are produced in the heads of long bones, in a process known as hematopoesis. On average, bone marrow constitutes 4% of the total body mass of humans; in an adult weighing 65 kilograms (140 lb), bone marrow accounts for approximately ...Read more
Gastric cancer that has spread to bones I pelvis, spine and legs. Very low blood count. Transfusions not working due to bone marrow being affected.?
It should help:
Blood tansfusion should help. However, it will last only for a short period of time. It will be shorter time if you have active bleeding. You should get your treatment started asap- off course, with the support of blood transfusion and growth support. Eventually, when the cancer is in better controlled under treatment, your bone marrow hopefully would gradually hwork again.
Discuss with your md. ...Read more
Hypoplastic anemaia, my 14 months old baby (male) has hypoplastic anemia, his bone marrow is producing less blood cells, please suggest me some sol?
Steroids?: By hypoplastic anemia, I assume that you mean diamond-blackfan anemia. If not, then disregard my answer. Many patients with dba improve their red blood cell production with steroid treatment, and many of those that respond to steroids can be maintained on very low doses of steroids. For those patients that do not respond, chronic transfusion therapy is necessary to allow adequate hemoglobin values. ...Read more
Dad 70 yrs, non alchoholic. Has macrocytic anemia. Hb 10. Mcv 110. No blood loss. Bone marrow, kidney, liver, vitamins, colonscopy normal. Why anemic?
Ideas: He's not on medications and has normal thyroid, correct? He needs a reticulocyte count to determine whether these cells are big because they're young. I'd be surprised if that was the explanation. Next will perhaps be an offer of a bone marrow tap to look for myelodysplastic syndrome. ...Read more
Does the WBC count increase in aplastic anemia or fanconi anemia? Does the bone marrow produce enough to cause increase by 1000/ ml of blood?

Lack of red cells.: Anemia is a lower than normal concentration of hemoglobin in blood. Hemoglobin is carried by red blood cells, and our test measures the total amount of HGB carried by all red cells in a volulme of blood. A low white blood cell count is leukopenia, and a low platelet count is thrombocytopenia. ...Read more
Anemia: Anemia causes decrease delivery of oxygen to all the tissues of the body. It is important to find the cause of the anemia so we can correct it. For example is is due to : iron deficiency, colon cancer, any cancer, anorexia, leukemia, lymphoma, low thyroid, sickle cell anemia, etc. ..Anemia may cause heart attack, stroke as well. ...Read more
Depends: Blood counts generally describe three types of cells. Anemia would be low red blood cell numbers, and this could be "low blood counts". But low blood counts could describe additional blood cells that are low. These results should be discussed with the provider that order the blood count. ...Read more

Several things: Low blood counts can mean low red blood cells, white blood cells, or platelets. I assume she has low white cells if she's getting infections. Causes include medications, past chemotherapy, or a bone marrow problem called myelodysplasia. Some chronic leukemias can cause low white blood counts. Her doctor should look at her blood smear under a microscope to see what's going on. ...Read more

I have pain in my left lower adobom for two weeks and have a low blood count what could this be? I am a 55 year old male with treated high blood presher

Any fevers?

My niece has just had to have bloods taken again throu a low blood count she is five months pregnant can anyone help thanks?
Wasn't sure what you: Meant by low counts, but I would not leap from low blood count to ovarian ca. Ovarian ca does not tend to metastasize to bone marrow, where blood cells are made. Contralateral ovary, fallopian tubes, peritoneum, liver, lungs, bone and brain are the most common sites. I think the more intriguing question is why you are making the connection? Is there a family history that concerns you? ...Read more
Is 10.1 a very low hemoglobin blood count? I have Crohn's and constant diarrhea. Is that a low blood count?
This is a low Hgb...: Normal hemoglobins are in the range of 13-16 g/dl, and are generally higher in men than women. From your brief history, there are many potential factors that could be contributing to anemia, including (but not limited to) crohns dz, anemia of chronic disease, malabsorptions, blood loss, nutritional issues, etc. If you're a woman, menses contributes as well. You'd be wise to address with your dr. ...Read more
Bruising: In the setting of leukemia where the leukemia cells are occupying the bone marrow space- production of normal blood cells would be severely diminished. Thus one can be presented with spontaneous bruising /bleeding as the result of low platelet levels. However, if one is easily bruising- it does not mean that one has leukemia. Many other conditions can cause easy bruising as well. Go get checked. ...Read more
Need more info: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

My husband has low blood count. Hemoglobin 14, RBC 5.59, low WBC 3700, platelets 157000. What's wrong with him?
I think he's fine: There's no such thing as a perfect husband, but I don't see any problems with his blood picture. The total WBC count is actually at the low end of what I think is a reasonable reference range, and unless the neuts are very low or he's clearly sick clinically, I'd simply be thankful for good health. I trust he has other faults and that the two of you will be forbearing & love one another. ...Read more
Possible.: Anemia can make people lightheaded. Actually losing consciousness would be very unusual unless the anemia was severe and the person did something really strenuous. More common anemia symptoms are fatigue, feeling cold, mild headache, shortness of breath with exercise, lack of stamina, and generalized weakness. ...Read more
