Blood has iron in HGB, bones has it in the marrow, muscle cells has it in myoglobin, but what's the amount in (mg) of iron in each of these stores??
About half in blood: If you are well-nourished & live in the developed world, you have about 4-5 grams of iron in your body. About 50-60% is contained in hemoglobin needed to carry oxygen through the blood. The rest is contained in ferritin (a precursor) complexes found in all cells, most common in bone marrow, liver and spleen. Perhaps 10% of iron is devoted to important cellular processes, incl myoglobin's action. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can calcium deficiency cause multiple broken arms? 50 # total but osteoporosis only in left leg not arms. Low calcium levels med-high impact falls
Most likely not: Hypocalcemia needs confirmation by measurement of the serum ionized calcium level. When the diagnosis is confirmed by the finding of a serum calcium level lower than 8.2 mg/dl or an ionized calcium level lower than 4.4 mg/dl attention should turn toward seeking the cause. When we find the cause the treatment will directed to that. Heck with endocrinologists. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can't compare #s: The numbers can't be compared--only their relationship to "normal" for each type of test (i.e., compare saliva with saliva normals, and serum with serum normals). In blood, there are "free" and "bound" levels of hormones, showing free (active) hormone, and hormone "bound" (inactivated) to serum proteins. In saliva, the amount of hormone is all free--there are no serum proteins to bind with. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not important: This is the least of problems if you have all. There can be many causes, the commonest is low Albumin which automatically gives us a low value. But it is inconsequential. Tumor lysis can be another reason but it is not all that common. But your doctor can tell you the cause better than i can try to guess. ...Read more
Can an increase in IgG + IgA proteins in the blood (serum) cause an overflow and therefore protein in the urine?
If kidney diseased..: Kidneys can leak protein if the kidneys are diseased. Proteinuria is a very sensitive predictor of development of progressive renal insufficiency, particularly when looking at high molecular weight proteins such as immunoglobulin g (igg), as predictors of chronic kidney disease progression. In some cases, mild proteinuria can occur without kidney disease. ...Read more

In your leg: The clot is not deadly if it remains in your leg. The problem comes when part of it breaks off and travels up the superior vena cava into the right side of the heart and it is then squirted out into the pulmonary veins where it gets stuck. That is a pulmonary embolus. The PE is dangerous and can be life threatening ...Read more
