Fecal Globin By Immunochemistry
Blood in the stool: You are probably referring to a fecal (stool) hemoglobin test, which checks for microscopic blood in the stool, blood that you cannot see with your eyes. It is a colon cancer screening test, but it's not highly sensitive or specific. Get a colonoscopy when you're 50, or earlier if you have risk factors such as family history of colon cancer or personal history of polyps. ...Read more
Hi, im male 21 years old and i got itp, i used al medication (prednisone, globin) and even had a marrow research. How bad is it if i remove myn spleen?
Ferritin, rbc, haematocrit, globin all normal but low serum iron, gp gave me ferrous fumarate, but im not anaemic?
More info needed!: Low iron level by itself does not always indicate iron deficiency. To interpret the results, we interpret it in conjunction with ferritin, TIBC and iron saturation. Low iron level can some times be seen if you have an inflammatory / infectious condition at the time of blood draw. It is very unusual to have iron deficiency in a young man as it is usually seen in young females due to menstruation. ...Read more

Stool transfer: Quite simply, stool from a healthy individual is transferred by enema into the colon of a sick patient. In so doing, the bacterial population from the healthy subject is transplanted into the gut of a patient whose bacterial flora is impaired (as in refractory c.Difficile infection). This experimental technique has recently been picked up by the lay literature & popularized. Don't try it at home! ...Read more
Can't defecate: Stool becomes hard and dry; it's difficult for the colon to move it along, and difficult (and painful) for the hard stool to pass through the anal canal. Lack of water in diet can contribute; chronic use of opiate pain medscan too. Rarely people can have motility disorders of the intestines that contribute to fecal impaction. In extreme cases hard stool can wear through the intestinal wall. ...Read more
Fecal impaction is a: result of severe constipation,when a large mass of stool lodges in the outermost part of the large intestine,the rectum.It can be painful;some people then have liquid stool leaking around it,giving the appearance of diarrhea, but it is not.The cause of the constipation needs to be treated and the mass of stool needs to be removed, so enemas and stool softeners and laxative may be used. ...Read more
Stoppage of stool: Fecal impaction occurs when fecal matter gets "stuck" inside the colon and cannot be moved by the colon's natural peristalsis. This constitutes a matter of medical urgency, because impaction raises the risk of perforating the colon due to the increased pressure, to mention nothing of the fact that it can be incredibly painful. ...Read more
