Cause Of Low Hemoglobin And Anemia In Dialysis Patients
Low estriol /anemia: It should not. Need to see maternal fetal medicine specialist and have targeted ultrasound. ...Read more
Simple answer is that it is a medical technology used primarily to provide an artificial replacement for lost kidney function in people with renal failure. Hemodialysis remove wastes and excess water from the blood by circulating blood outside the body through an external filter, called a dialyzer. Blood and dialysate flow through in opposite directions and the ...Read more
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
5 year old with normocytic anemia. Normal reticulocyte and ferritin. High WBC and platelets. Low hemoglobin. What could be the cause?
Sketchy picture: How is your child doing apart from those figures? Can be just common iron deficiency anemia, and how high are the platelets or the WBCs? Also common to have some elevations with any concurrent infection. If your child is doing fine otherwise, disregard those numbers and trust your doctor, we treat patients not lab results, best wishes for yourself and your child ...Read more
I've had severe anemia and an extremely low hemoglobin level for 5 years. How can I treat and possibly cure this condition?
Iron: But first, you need to find the cause. Are you bleeding, destroying your blood, or not making blood. The most common cause is that you are losing blood. You need to talk with your doctor. Hope this helps. ...Read more
What type of anemia has elevated rdw-cv, normal mcv, low mch, low mchc and low hemoglobin? Iron is normal range.
Need more info:
Do you have a chronic illness? 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. Having said that, the limited data you provided suggests anemia of chronic illness. It would be prudent to consult the doctor who ordered the tests.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
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.
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
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 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 more
Dr thinks I'm on verge of iron deficiency anemia. Ferritin is only low #.hemoglobin is fine. Platelet is 600. Is high platelet related to pre-anemia?
Doctors checked for Celiac, thyroid, mono, inflammatory, cbc- low hemoglobin-, and said my symptoms aren't from my anemia. Mom wants leukemia tests?
Is this mild anemia or moderate? Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, mcv, mch, mchc. High rdw, esr, platelets. Iron 3 (11-27umol/L).saturation 0.03 (0.20-0.50). B12 162 (198-615).
Anemia found on blood test. Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, mcv, mch, high rdw. Have had heavy periods for a few years but why would it just show up now?
It takes time to exh:
We all carry extra reserves of blood and iron stores in our body which can make up for moderate blood losses for a long time. Only when the reserve is exhausted and there is no more iron left in the body will your blood tests start showing up Anemia.
You need to ask your doctor for providing you the raw materials (like Iron supplements) to help you make extra blood. ...Read more
5 year old has persistent normocytic anemia. High WBC, platelets, low RBC and hemoglobin. Normal MCV, MCH, ferritin and reticulocyte. What's the cause?
Possible SLE? -Butterfly Rash -Anemia (low hemoglobin, hemocrit, low rbc) -High Neutrophils -Swelling in right kidney off/on' -Raynauds -Migraines
Maybe: SLE is possible and I would urge consultation with a rheumatologist. ...Read more
Baby has iron deficiency anemia and has fever for 3 days now. Lab results show normal platelet count, low hemoglobin, high wbc. Is this an emergency?
Doesn't sound like: It, if your child truly is 1yo. A few days of fever, due to a viral illness for example, is not uncommon. I'd give you a different answer for a 2-3mo child. If your child is staying well hydrated despite the insensible losses, he will probably be fine. If you're uncertain, go see your pediatrician. The blood counts by themselves are not that concerning, provided anemia is being treated. ...Read more
I have grade 2 scariolitis (as) and I take no medication. I have low hemoglobin 118, low MCH 27.2 and high RDW which came on suddenly. My blood count was normal six weeks ago, except the low potassium level of 3.3. Could I have aoi anemia or inflammation?
What are some preventive health screening needed for a female 48 years old. I currently have high blood pressure, diabetes, anemia low hemoglobin, heart mumor, arthritis, diagnosed a high risk of congestive heart failure, high cholesterol, morbid obessed
Rapid heart rate during period. Low hemoglobin, low MCH and high rdw. Borderline normal mcv. Also had mildly low 3.3 potassium 7 weeks ago. I see dr tues, what type of anemia and safest way to treat?
You probably: Have iron deficiency anemia. Common causes are blood loss, lack iron on diet, pregnancy, inability to absorb iron due for example celiac disease. In your case blood loss due to possibly heavy period. I imaging endoscopy study negative. Treatment iron supplement. Iron studies also indicated if in doubt. All above can give you tachycardia and fatigue. But thyroid test indicated. ...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
Cleansing of blood: Dialysis is the cleansing of the blood through an artificial membrane. It replaces some of the physiologic functions of a normal kidney but is generally inferior to a functioning kidney. One of the functions of the kidney is to produce a hormone that stimulates blood produciton. When kidney function is impaired, this hormone production is diminished, resulting in anemia. ...Read more
Got checked for anemia. Hemoglobin 19.5. Gp said that's good. Is this level normal? Too low or too high?
A little bit high: If you feel okay, there's no need for a follow-up. You're too young to have polycythemia vera. If you're on Anabolic steroids at the gym, that's your business. Were you dehydrated? Especially if you've had this before, you might have a high-affinity hemoglobin, a cardiac structural defect, or even a bad case of sleep apnea. As with most? S, the real answer will come from your history & physical. ...Read more
RBC Low 3.99 HCT Low 36.4 Iron: 41 TIBCC 459 FERR 6.4 - iron deficiet anemia but why isn't my hemoglobin low?
Your hemoglobin may be low normal, but your iron stores are still depleted and if you do not correct the deficiency you will become anemic, especially of you are losing more than usual amount of blood each month. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.

Yes, mild anemia: This is common, especially in menstruating females, more fruits and green vegetables would suffice, all the best ...Read more
If my hemoglobin (12.6) and hematorcrit (38.3%) are low but my iron is ok (101) does it mean that anemia doesn't comes from internal bleeding?
No: You are most likely "hemo-diluted." the blood volume expands and contracts depending on gains and loss. In the desert, one becomes volume contracted (hemoconcentrated), while over ingesting liquids or IV fluids, hemodiluted. If the absolute fe (iron) storage is normal, you're not anemic. ...Read more
