Low Hemoglobin Levels Blood Transfusion
Creatinine lowering: Yes, patients who need blood transfusion has a low volume in their intravascular (i) space. This causes an elevation of creatinine (c). When the blood is transfused and the i volume increases, the c will fall. It is similar to what happens to the c when a patient is dehydrated and is given fluid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Total iron binding capacity is high. Transferrin is high.Iron serum normal. Hemoglobin count low 12 any significance.Is it hemochromatosis?

Likely: The best test for iron deficiency anemia (ida) is ferritin. Sometimes when there is inflammation (an possible associated anemia of chronic disease/inflammation, the ferritin may increase as an acute phase reactant). The "gold standard" for diagnosis is a bone marrow biopsy, but rarely needed. High platelets are also associated with ida. Treatment should improve platelets and ferritin. ...Read more
More info needed: High blood and platelet counts may mean nothing, but need to evaluate based on examination, white blood cell count and how high red cell count and platelet counts are. Iron deficiency can increase platelets as can inflammation; high altitude and smoking can raise the red count---a good history and physical are needed. Good luck. ...Read more
Ferritin, hematocrit, hglobin normal. Hematocrit 44. Will iron increase it? Serum iron low. Rbc count normal and above.
Why do you ask?: This is almost certainly the right hematocrit for your body. No "pop" remedy is going to increase it; if you are seeking to raise it artificially for an athletic competition, you'll have to ask elsewhere. Loading up on iron is likely to make you sick, both acutely (upset stomach) and long-term (iron-overload still kills plenty of men). ...Read more

Blood test report: homocysteine level high/ blood platelets low/ bilirubin high. What could be wrong?
Big picture please: As a lab doctor, this means nothing in isolation. I appreciate your caring & this is no familiar pattern. Is the person clinically healthy? How off are the values? Vegetarians and junk-fooders are equally at risk for high homocysteine as are folks with genetic disease. Bilirubin -- gilbert's? Platelets -- gin and tonic? This isn't something to discuss in a 400-character text thx 4 understanding. ...Read more

What might cause hyperthyroid, high anti-centromere b antibodies, enlarged red blood cells and high iron saturation, normal serum iron, low TIBC/UIBC?
THIS IS A "LONGSHOT": but this set of symptoms (SYNDROME) sound like HASHIMOTO's THYROIDITIS and PERNICIOUS Macrocytic anemia also may be AUTO-IMMUNE!!! in nature ie: the body falsely detects NORMAL TISSUE as being "FOREIGN" and develops auto-antibodies against (in this case) your thyroid gland and your bone marrow) This is a guess....just a "thought"..hope it helps!
