The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...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?

What diseases cause bone marrow to produce the right cells but not fast enough in a 8 year old boy with low red/white cells, low platelets + neoutroph?
Aplastic anemia: Aplastic anemia is a condition where for some unclear reason the bone marrow fails to produce normal blood cells. It could be due to underlying genetic mutation plus environmental -i.e. Drugs, chemical agent, infection, etc. Immunosupressant agent has been used to treat aplastic anemia with some response. Allogeneic bone marrow transplant will be the treatment of choice to cure the disease. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does low kidney function cause low immune system with low WBC and platelets? Or would it be the other way around?
No: I would look for a different cause. Some amyloidosis (famously amyloidosis al, made from light chains) is caused by a subtle or not-so-subtle proliferation of plasma cells; this may be treated with marrow suppressors. In an older person, "hypoplastic marrow" may be from sampling a place where marrow was a bit scant; the blood picture's key here. Your physicians know more. Good luck. ...Read more
What could cause abnormally low levels of rbc, wbc, and platelets? Aplastic anemia, mds, leukemia have been ruled out via bm biopsy.
Infections-- but---: Much more detail is needed about your case.

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
Autoimmune disease: Sjogren's is one of many autoimmune diseases. Organ donation would be very ill-advised since the likelihood that multiple organs are involved with autoimmune disorders is great. They also travel in clusters; for instance, where you have one autoimmune disorder, you are more likely to have another. While it's always awesome to want to donate organs and blood, donating disease is way less awesome :). ...Read more

Ask questions: Adrenal fatigue is overdiagnosed. You may get fatigued, but your adrenals seldom do. If you have adrenal failure (addison's) you need to see an endocrinologist. A steroid shot will cause temporary elevated wbc. Why would a 33 yo woman have osteoporosis and bone necrosis? Did you have premature menopause? I suggest you see an internal medicine md or endocrinologist to sort this out. ...Read more
How does rods placed into the bone effect bone marrow? If bone marrow loss is a result of this condition, would that also cause anemia?
Probably not: Much. In the common situation where a rod is placed in the femur to stabilize a serious fracture there would be effacement of some bone marrow, but not enough in of itself to cause a deficit in rbc production leading to anemia. The fracture itself and the surgery could result in low HGB shortly after the injury. ...Read more
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
