Is having decreased menstrual blood flow than normal for two consecutive cycles a cause for serious concern for a woman of 24 years?

Is having decreased menstrual blood flow than normal for two consecutive cycles a cause for serious concern for a woman of 24 years?

Not necessarily: The amount of flow depends on the balance of estrogen and progesterone. The more estrogen the more uterine lining grows and the more you have to bleed off. Progesterone is produced after ovulation and makes the lining stop growing and get mature. If ovulation is early you will have less time for the lining to grow. ...Read more

What would be the symptoms of decreased blood flow to the brain?

What would be the symptoms of decreased blood flow to the brain?

Depends: The effects depend on the distribution, severity, speed of decline and existing disorders.
If the decrease is sudden, transient and global, it causes fainting. If it is prolonged and global, it could cause life-threatening consequences like respiratory and/or cardiac arrest. If the decrease if focal, transient and mild, it causes transient ischemic attack; severe decline would result in a stroke. ...Read more

Why would keto-acidosis lead to decreased pco2 in arterial blood gases?

Compensation: In response to the low ph caused by the ketoacidosis, the brainstem triggers a dramatic increase in the respiratory rate. This causes the lungs to expel more carbon dioxide in a process known as respiratory compensation for metabolic acidosis. ...Read more

What do these results mean? Decreased MCH and elevated RDW in blood test?

What do these results mean? Decreased MCH and elevated RDW in blood test?

Suggests low iron: Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (mch) relates to how much hemoglobin on your red blood cell (see mchc - adds concentration to mch). Forget exact acronym, but RDW measures (via flow cytometry) size of many red cells--normal to have all about one size. If becoming anemic, see wide variation which raises RDW #. Both of these can be due to low iron, but also folate (folic acid) or B12--ask your Dr for context & plan ...Read more

Hello im 27 female. My blood test showed that my red blood cells have decreased. What shall I do to increase my red blood cells? What food shall I eat?

Hello im 27 female. My blood test showed that my red blood cells have decreased. What shall I do to increase my red blood cells? What food shall I eat?

Anemia: A low red blood cell count is known as anemia. Anemia is a symptom, not a disease and thus the cause of anemia must be investigated. While being investigated, one should increase the iron in one's diet. This can be done with iron tablets, or by eating foods rich in iron. This would include red meat, spinach, and beans. ...Read more

Does an av canal cause decreased o2 saturation in the blood?

Does an av canal cause decreased o2 saturation in the blood?

Yes, it can.: Yes, atrioventricular canal (av canal) defects can result in decresed oxygen saturation if there is a residual shunt (mixing of blue and pink blood) which can happen in presence of elevated pressures in the lung (pulmonary hypertension). Decresed oxygen saturation can also result from lung disease and other conditions. ...Read more

My recent blood test showed, ESR and RDW levels slightly high, and hematocrit level decreased slightly. Should I be worried?

My recent blood test showed, ESR and RDW levels slightly high, and hematocrit level decreased slightly. Should I be worried?

Lab data: Difficult to comment on lab results without clinical correlation, but you are slightly anemic and if this is iron deficient anemia it may be because of bleeding during your period and may require iron supplementation. The increased ESR and CRP are probably of no consequence. Get an answer to why your hemoglobin is low. Good luck. ...Read more

Is 8 weeks of iron infusions enough? Ater this time hemoglobin decreased to 7.6. As a result, I had a blood transfusion.

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

I have Rhabdomyolysis. My SGOT and SGPT were high and it has decreased to 29 and 83. Is it possible for SGOT and SGPT to increase on next blood test??

Treat the cause: The most important thing is to find out the cause of your rhabdomyolysis. Then lots of hydration is the standard treatment so that it does not affect your kidneys. Then repeat testing for your liver function like SGOT and SGPT, muscle enzyme creatine kinase and kidney functions will be the next step. ...Read more

How? Can one fix decreased abs eosinophil count in blood?

What do you mean....: By low. Eosinophils are not terribly abundant to begin with, and most problems that arise related to eosinophils occur because of having too many, not too few. Their normal function in the immune system is to fight parasitic infection. Elevated eos are characteristic of atopic (allergic) conditions and a few other pathological states such as loefflers syndrome and adrenal insufficiency. ...Read more

Hydraulics 101: Hydraulics 101. If the blood (the hydraulic fluid) leaving the penis is leaving even slower than the decreased blood flow entering the penis, there will still be increasing hydraulic pressure in the penis. It's just physics... more hydraulic pressure means a firmer or growing penis. ...Read more
