Does Drinking Beer Affect Your Hemoglobin Level
What does a low hemoglobin level mean? I was told that my 3 year old sons hemoglobin is low because he drinks to much milk. Is this true or is something else wrong. And if so what would it possible be?
Blood loss vs iron: Kids who consume more than 24-30 oz of milk/day can experience tiny amounts of blood loss thru the intestine due to irritation caused by the cow milk protein on the gut wall. Smaller amounts or boiled milk, don't seem to cause this problem. Blood loss, paired with the kids avoidance of other iron containing foods leads to low hemoglobin production & anemia.Other causes are also possible.See 1 more doctor answer
How long could it take for my hemoglobin level to return to its pre-surgical range if I receive a transfusion? If I didn't?
6-12 weeks: There are a number of variables here. First, how low was your hemoglobin when you started? Second, if you received a transfusion, what was your hemoglobin after? It takes about 90 days to cycle through your blood supply, so after 3 months, you should be back to your baseline.See 1 more doctor answer

GLUTEN FREE DIET: He fits Criteria for obesity. I would also suggest if he is fatigued and sleepy during the day, to obtain a sleep study. Especially if collar size greater than 18.

Also full blood work update with thyroid studies and testosterone levels should be obtained. Also increase activity
You die: Miserably. Forgive my frankness. Think about being so short of breath that walking across a room feels like a fat person trying to run a marathon. Plus, every anemia is a warning of hidden disease, very often treatable. Please get managed by a scientific practitioner.
Why is it low.: This is an impossible question to answer without more information. How low is it, how old are you, has a physician figured out why it is low, what is the surgery. As you can see this is to complex an issue to any in a forum such as this what you need to do is talk to the surgeon scheduled to do your procedure and come up with a plan. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer

ER or LMD: Bloods must have been drawn for a reason. Not only should the Hgb be corrected but the source of possible bleeding be identified at age 35. When Hgb drops to 10 corrective measures should be taken with Fe or Procrit (epoetin alfa). When in the 8 gm. Range transfusions should be considered. LMD should proceed with work up. If Hgb much lower than one goes to ER for transfusion.
Blood rqd for test: Although some doctors feel they can estimate your hemaglobin level with clues from a physical; eyelid, palm lines, gum pallor, etc. The only way to get an accurate hemaglobin level is to get a sample. Whether this is from a draw (which gives the best sample) or a finger stick (like a glucose test) you need blood to tell what's in it.See 1 more doctor answer
No: Why was blood transfusion given? The reason for the initial drop in hemoglobin may still be present.
