Is Microcytic Aenema The Kind From Too Much Bleeding
Which type of anemia is more serious and could be due to bloo cancer? Is it macrocytic or microcyyoc anemia? Mcv 107 is it too high? Thanks
Both: Microcytic anemia is most often due to iron deficiency and blood loss. Macrocytic anemia(mcv over 96) can be due to vitamin B12 or Folic Acid deficiency, alcoholism, liver disease, some bone marrow disorders like leukemia, underactive thyroid or rarely fish tapeworms. All anemias are dangerous if not properly diagnosed and treated. A hematologist is consulted if the cause of the macrocytosis is vague. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What are the real risks of giving acetaminophen/ibuprofen for teething in terms of liver or kidney damage? How much is too much? 12 month old.

In 20 years of medical practice I have never seen liver or kidney failure from parents judiciously using these medicines. Acetaminophen affects liver. Ibuprofen affects kidney. Use for a baby who is in pain or severe discomfort with a fever or earache, not "as a preventive" or "just in case". ...Read more
Infection risk aside, how much would someone's hgb be lowered (very roughly) from injecting 100ml pure water? Is that a low enough amount to be safe?
Good grief!: Why would you do such a thing? Is this some sort of wacko natural health procedure? The actual reduction in hemoglobin level would be small, but if 100 ml water were rapidly injected, it might cause significant hemolysis (osmotic rupture of red blood cells), which in turn can cause serious problems like kidney damage. In any case, this carries absolutely no health benefit. Don't do it. ...Read more
What is the effect of drinking red wine? Also i find it difficult to stool the following morning because the stool was very strong, what caused it
Two questions: Red wines contain tannins which enhance taste. There are about 50+ varietals. Some people do not tolerate wines for various reasons. Hard stools, if related to the wine are likely caused by dehydration. Wine acts as a diuretic, causing you to urinate more, and because you are imbibing the wine you may reduce your water intake. Of course, your stool issue may not have anything to do with wine. ...Read more
