Hemolytic Anemia Cause Albumin Urine
Urine is the product of the kidneys, which is produced to eliminate the waste products of metabolism, manage body fluid balance, &maintain acid-base balance. The blood is first filtered by the kidneys, and the composition of the resulting fluid is then altered depending on the body's needs. It is composed of mostly water, and breakdown products from blood cells impart ...Read more
Haemoglobin is not found in the urine of a healthy person but is in a person with hemolytic anemia, is this true?
It's not so simple: Everyone has a little bit of blood in the urine. A runner usually has mild hematuria from the mechanics of running with a full bladder. Further, someone who has hemolysis that's not intravascular (i.e., autoimmune hemolysis, spherocytosis) won't spill hemoglobin, and somone with mild ongoing hemolysis (sickle cell) with enough haptoglobin to trap the hemoglobin won't spill it either. ...Read more
Autoimmune reaction: Cephalosporins interact with red blood cell membranes. The body can sometimes produce antibodies against cephalosporins that also interact with the surface of red blood cells. These antibodies thus activate the body's immune system to attack its own red blood cells, causing hemolytic anemia. This is a rare but severe side effect of cephalosporins. ...Read more

Can hemolytic anemia cause low blood vol. Thereby causing autonomic dysfunction? Does body see hemolysis as trauma thereby triggering stress hormones?
Whoa: Hemolytic anemia won't affect blood volume but will affect oxygen carrying capacity. Further, if the cause is microangiopathy, lupus, malaria, or any of a variety of others, there may be a huge number of different problems. I'm glad you have an inquiring mind, but there's no need to invoke "stress hormones"; you'd do well to stop reading "pop" explanations if someone's actually seriously sick. ...Read more
