12 years post op rny, iron 20 & vitamin d at 10. Seeing a new dr that hasn't worked with deficient gastric bypass, is 325ferrous 3x and 2000d 1x okay?

12 years post op rny, iron 20 & vitamin d at 10. Seeing a new dr that hasn't worked with deficient gastric bypass, is 325ferrous 3x and 2000d 1x okay?

Nutrition!: A gastric bypass is a very complex nutrition situation. If your physician has not dealt with it much i would suggest asking for a referral to a nutritionist or a bariatric center. That being said, the dosage of iron is fda approved treatment for iron deficiency, and the vitamin d is a reasonable amount. You have many nutrient levels that should be monitored and carefully watched! ...Read more

I've had open heart surgery about 8 years ago, aneurism repair and metal aortic valve replacement. INR is 2.1(low),I wake up with blood in mouth, dark?

I've had open heart surgery about 8 years ago, aneurism repair and metal aortic valve replacement. INR is 2.1(low),I wake up with blood in mouth, dark?

Contact your MD: Based on your health history and that fact that you have INR testing, you are likely taking warfarin or a different blood thinner in which case you should contact your doctor and let them know you are experiencing bleeding. It may also be a good idea to contact a dentist as it is not normal for your mouth to be bleeding and there may be an underlying teeth or gum problem causing this. ...Read more

Probably reactive: You are anemic and the numbers are suspicious for iron deficiency. If you are a healthy 34 year-old who menstruates regularly, you could easily be low in iron. The plaelet count is very high, but is likely reacting to the low iron and should come down if it is replaced. The elevated white cells (WBC) is not as easy to understand. Inflamation, infection, other? Could use more info. Good luck. ...Read more

Tsh 4.0 T3 (liothyronine) 27 T4 7.4 testosterone 58 tpo antibody 359 pregnant 7 weeks having chills no fever no overweight BMI 23 worried if something serious help?

Check with Dr.: Your tpo antibody is high, and more than a third of the women who test positive for thyroid peroxidase (tpo) antibodies while pregnant go on to develop abnormal thyroid hormone levels within two years, more followup needs to be done with these women. Your body maybe attacking your thyroid gland. This is not an emergency please do not panic and talk to your doctor. ...Read more

All solid zirconium that support span of 4 unit bridge covering teeth 11 to 14 broke after 10 weeks. Previous porc bridge also broken. Causes/options?

All solid zirconium that support span of 4 unit bridge covering teeth 11 to 14 broke after 10 weeks. Previous porc bridge also broken. Causes/options?

Dynamic forces: Many factors can lead to this, but most important are the support base and the bite. This is a long span to cover when starting with the canine, but do not expect the zirconium to fx. Likely clenching/grinding without occlusal guard/compliance . See the expert in reconstruction - Prosthodontist. Consider 2 crowns and 2 implants (12,13) with crowns and bite correction (lower arch). good luck. ...Read more

1st pregnancy last yr, blood clot pass every 10 or 15days, finally 13th week miscarried. Lung TB treated 10 yrs ago. Need to check anti phospholipid?

1st pregnancy last yr, blood clot pass every 10 or 15days, finally 13th week miscarried. Lung TB treated 10 yrs ago. Need to check anti phospholipid?

Possibly: Most first trimester miscarriages are due to fetal malformations or chromosome abnormalities. Classic APAS related are often second trimester or associated with other problems like infertility. But if no explanation otherwise for fetal loss, thrombophilia tests like for antiphospholipid antibody are reasonable. ...Read more

My dad 70 yrs has macrocytic anemia. Hemoglobin 9.5, hematocrit 28. Hematologist gave maltofer pill a day. In a month hemoglobin 10 hematocrit 30?

What is the question: Please rephrase your question to get a better answer. Please discuss in detail with his hematologist. The fact that hematologist gave the iron- means that your hematologist thinks there is a component of iron deficiency. So, continue iron and f/u with your md. However, it does not fit exactly with macrocytosis. Other work up still needs to be done to see explanation for macrocytosis. ...Read more
