Hgb Is 141 Gdl What Is Mean
Several things: Hi. Either you're having intravascular hemolysis and hemoglobin's coming out in the urine, or there are red cells in the urine that measure as urinary hemoglobin. I'd recommend a urine analysis with microscopic evaluation to see if it's reproducible. If no RBCs in urine, Check serum free hemoglobin and haptoglobin, and have a pathologist look at a peripheral blood smear. Good luck! ...Read more
Hemoglobin : Hgb is abbreviation for hemoglobin, the carrier of oxygen in the red blood cell. Low HGB is anemia. High HGB reflects excess red cells, called polycythemia. There are many causes so you will need further testing by your physician to establish the correct cause of your polycythemia. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Test restults show hgb 14.1; cohb 3.7; 02hb 89.9; methb 1.0; o2 17.9. I have trouble takingq a good deep breath. What could that mean?
Look elsewhere: Avoid smoke if you can, and look for some physical / mechanical / chest or lung disease explanation for your inability to take a deep breath. Your bloodwork won't tell us why. As a pathologist, i'm always urging doctors and patients to look at "the numbers" only as an adjunct to the history and physical exam. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It is normal: Hemoglobin is the molecule in red blood cells that carries oxygen, and it exists in several different forms. Hemogloobin f, or fetal hemoglobin, is what we have before birth, and gradually it is replaced with hemoglobin a. Usually 98% of our hemoglobin is hemoglobin a1, and a small percentage is hemoglobin a2. In some blood diseases, these percentages change.Your test shows no hemoglobinopathy. ...Read more

HIgh Hb and high Hematocrit (Hct) is often non significant but it can on rare occasions indicate a problem wiht the bone marrow or even or lungs, but these are quite uncommon. ...Read more

Female 83 yrs, HGB 8.70, ALKP 532, Macroplatalets seen on smear. Lost apetite. What does this means? Can be serious?
My mean corpuscular hgb is 25.8pg n not b/w 27.0-32.0pg and my mean corpuscular hb concentration is 30.6g/dl n not b/w 31.5-34.5g/dl.Is it too low?
Blood loss: When Hgb drops below 10 gm one has to be suspicious of blood loss but can be corrected by meds such as ProCrit (epoetin alfa). When Hgb is in the 8 gm. range transfusion necessary to bring to over 12. At 6.4 transfusion and work up for blood loss required. Can be vaginal from uterine lesion, GI from ulcer or tumor but this must be defined and corrected. Depending on symptoms appropriate physician needed. ...Read more
Bleeding: If hb has dropped by one gram over two weeks, that means that you have lost about 300-500 ml of blood or more. It may be due to external bleeding e., g., menstrual bleed or internal, such as a bleeding peptic ulcer. If you have appreciable drop in hb over two weeks, see your doctor asap. ...Read more
Anemia: A low hemoglobin (HGB) and hematocrit (hct) mean that one has anemia, or low numbers of red blood cells. A high RDW (or red cell distribution width) indicates that the red blood cells are all of very different sizes. The most common thing to cause this constellation of findings is iron defciency anemia, but other things can too so it is important that your problem be evaluated by a hematologist. ...Read more
Nothing by itself: However, since your physician rx'd iron pills for you, then he/she must believe you are iron deficient and that he/she already knows the cause (diet and/or a woman's monthly loss). Mpv may run a bit high in iron deficiency; no one knows why and you should not worry yourself over it. ...Read more
Abnormal labwork: It may not necessarily mean anything as far as you having any disease. It is more important to know why the test was done (symptoms for example). The measurements you referred to involve red blood cells and indicate that there there is increased mean corpuscular volume and hemoglobin weight. Those are seen in certain anemias and vitamin deficiencies, such as Folic Acid or b12, iron and hypoxia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have low levels .. HGB 11.7
I am 22 years old, what can this mean?
What mean the folowing blood results:? Rbc = 5.19, hct = 40.5 %, irf 9.9% , retic 1.2 %, hapto 138 mg/dl. Testing was done due to 12.8 hgb.
Appears fine: Depending upon the lab where the tests where drawn a HGB of 12.8 could be normal. Rbc and hct above appear normal as does the retic count and haptoglobin levels. Irf ranges between labs may vary but usually include 9 and 10 as within normal. Overall i would say there are no abnormal values in the ones presented above. ...Read more
