Hemoglobin 7 6
What is hemoglobin level during hemorrhagic shock?What level is dangerous?I had the lowest hemoglobin 7.6 in hospital, should I be afraid i got shock?
Shock vs anemia: Hemorrhagic shock results from acute bleeding. In hemorrhagic shock, the hemoglobin is often near normal as you are losing plasma and red cells at the same rate. By contrast, your anemia of 7.6 being relatively stable isn't going to turn suddenly into shock. Your physician needs to find the cause and treat it -- hopefully without your needing to be transfused. ...Read more

My mother is suffering from going black stool from 22 days.Urine and stool report,viedo X-ray and endoscopy reorts are normal.hemoglobin is 7.6 please?
Black Stools/Anemia: The cause of her profound anemia and melena, statistically, is bleeding in the GI tract, despite the initial negative imaging results that you report. Without further details, lab results, and past medical history, it is hard to pinpoint the culprit, but black stools point to bleeding in either the upper GI tract (stomach, small intestine) or proximal colon. Seek another gastroenterologist. ...Read more
Could a hemoglobin of 6.7 affect the absorption of alcohol (2 beers)? and subsequent breathalyzer making it seem like there was a higher consumption?
It could: significant anemia can alter the partition coefficient of alcohol, which is more soluble in water than in the red cell component of blood, so if there is more water present - as in anemia - there can be a higher measured level of alcohol than actually may be present. This is usually fairly minor, so if you are talking about a DUI, it might mean a 10% difference or so. If you are anemic,DON'T DRINK ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is 8 weeks of iron infusions enough? Ater this time hemoglobin decreased to 7.6. As a result, i had a blood transfusion.
Something's wrong: If iron infusions over eight weeks didn't fix your anemia, it's either not due to iron deficiency or you still have serious blood loss. I also see that somebody is giving you vitamin B12 for whatever reason. Please forgive my frankness. If there is not a misunderstanding, please get with a hematologist. ...Read more
