Hypothyroidism And Low Hemoglobin
Many causes: Anemia (low hemoglobin) can be a result of hypothyroidism through multiple mechanisms. Low thyroid causes less production of blood cells resulting in a "normochromic" anemia. It can also be associated with B12 deficiency and cause a "macrocytic" anemia. It can also cause less iron absorption and result in a "microcytic" anemia. If anemia persists after treating low thyroid, look other causes. ...Read more
The thyroid gland is an endocrine organ located in the front part of the neck. Its role is to make thyroid hormones, which control the way cells use energy. Hyperthyroidism results when the thyroid gland is overactive and too much thyroid hormone is produced, which speeds up metabolism.

I have a paraovarian cyst, lab shows high wbc. High eosinophils, hemglbin a little low diagnosed with hypothyroidism..What could be causing all this?
Not likely your cyst: Apparently your cyst is non-functional, so unless there is infection, it should not be causing your readings. Eosinophils can mean a parasitic infection or allergic reaction, while high WBC can mean an infection. Your low hb can be from blood loss or renal issue, and hypothyroid can have many causes. You may have one or many causes for this, but you need more tests so see your dr. For a workup. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Similarly low thyroid hormones can cause hair loss. ...Read more
Yes absolutely: One can die due to a very low hemoglobin level- for instance due to massive bleeding- due to lack of oxygenation on the vitals organ causing cell deaths , organ failure and ultimately death. The incidence is low in the usa, as we do have much better access to medical center. In the other part of the world- those happen frequently unfortunately. ...Read more
Low Hgb: Hemglobin is a molecule found in red blood cells to carry oxygen. It is composed of 2 globulin proteins and iron. So to raise it, you need to know if it is the iron that is missing from your body ( most common) or an underproduction of globulin. Get a serum iron level and if low, replace iron to normal levels. Also check for sources of bleeding such as from the gut. Stop iron once corrected. ...Read more
ALWAYS serious: Being "a little bit anemic" is like being "a little bit pregnant." even if the anemia is not life-threatening, it warns that you're sick and you need to find the cause. Especially, iron deficiency anemia without explanation screams out for a work-up -- "am i losing blood into my gut from an undiagnosed cancer?" you must demand your physician find the cause. ...Read more
