Slightly low hemoglobin and platelets following surgery that caused atelectasis. No history of anemia. Can atelectasis cause these results or no?
What might cause high B12 levels? I also had low iron (long-standing anemia) and low vitamin D. CBC was normal except mildly low hemoglobin.
B12 normal range: There is no harm in an elevated B12 level. The normal range is established based on a population study, but the physiology and diet factors that might lead to higher levels than those in the population study are not significant. Don't worry about it in the least. Get follow-up to see that the hemoglobin comes back to normal though. ...Read more
2 CBC tests showed low RBC (3.77) hemoglobin (11) and hematocrit (32.5!) 2 docs and 1 neuro said that's normal. Anemia? Other causes of these levels?
Very mild anemia: It will depend on the normal range of hb used at your laboratory where you have the test done. At my lab- the normal range used is between 12-15, so hb of 11 is only mildly anemic. It is nothing to worry much about however. In young woman like yourself- with your monthly period, you lose some iron in every cycle. This can cause mild anemia. Check your iron and take multi vitamin. D/w your md. ...Read more
What is good for dark circles under eyes and how can you determine what is the cause of dark circles.. I have anemia i was told my hemoglobin is low, and have seen several dermatologist but still don't have answers I am 48 years old and i could pass for 3
Dark : Dark circles under the eyes have several possible causes. In some cases it is due to the deposition of hemoglobin by-products in the skin resulting from chronic nasal congestion. In other cases, the dark circles is actually due to shadowing in the area that results from facial volume loss. This can be treated with improving the volume loss. This can be done with an in- office filler injection or facial fat grafting (fat transfer). Another common cause is genetics. Some people simply have more pigmentation in their lower eyelid skin. This is very difficult to change. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

How do u treat low hemoglobin(12.6)? Is this anemia? Take iron&if so how much? I read iron is no good 4 u. Rbc: 4.17, hematocrit: 37.4, high rdw: 15.
Results: 12.6 hemoglobin with a 37.4 hematocrit may be normal for you. This would depend on your prior results and your hemoglobin type--sickle trait patients may have these numbers and be perfectly fine. Is there any history of blood in stools or urine? Too much iron is not good, but appropriate doses for some conditions as recommended by your doctor would be helpful when prescribed. Good luck. ...Read more
