Cellular Clock Theory Of Aging
Just got back biopsy results....hypocellular marrow 10% with markedly reduced trilineage hematopoiesis with erythroid predominance... Is 10% cellularity cause for concern? What can this mean?
I'm studying the blood in a hematology class. I'm a little confused because it says that red blood cells make up 45% of cells yet what is cellularity?
Tricky: For a man, about 45% of the total blood volume is made up of cells, which include red cells (the vast majority, almost always), white cells, and platelets. Being solid, you can centrifuge them down, leaving the plasma (or if it has clotted, serum) on the top. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Explain by medical theory! Did excessive ejaculation for 2yr like 2to3 time a day in past increase my testosterone levels cause baldness at age 20?
DHT causes baldness: So let's try again. Masturbation does not increase testosterone. Masturbation does not cause baldness. Genetics is main reason for male pattern baldness although acute illness, infection, etc can cause thinning hair & patchy loss. Dihydrotestosterone (converted from t) is partially responsible for male pattern baldness. Check out http://en. Wikipedia. Org/wiki/androgenic_alopecia for more info. ...Read more

Still normal-sized?: Micropenis is something an occasional boy is born with. The doctor doing the newborn exam can tell the parents if a penis is tiny. If the penis is normal sized at birth, his growth hormone and testosterone keep his penis growing normally until adulthood. Be sure the doctor checks the penis & testicles at check-ups. A smaller-than-average penis is normal, and not a micropenis, which is really tiny. ...Read more

Depends: At 6'2", 195 lb would give you a normal body mass index of 25.0. Bmi however doesn't take gender into account. Men carry more muscle mass then women therefore a weight of 200-210 lb in a lean male may also be appropriate. Consider most elite body builders are considered over weight based on standard bmi scales. Obviously, this is not the case as they have body fats as low as 3-5%. Hope that helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
