What is the cause of having low hemoglobin and what is the treatment?

Treatments dpend upo: Low blood can be due to either a leak in your body or a decrease in production activity. Think of the blood as the amount of water in a bath tub. The level of blood will decrease as you open the drain and while the faucet is shut down. For iron, low iron from frequent heavy cramps. Low B12 & folate due to poor nutrition. Go see your family doc regarding your concerns. ...Read more

My hemoglobin is at a 9 what is the treatment for this?  My blood sugar levels are also low.

You're anemic: There are dozens of common causes of anemia and the cause in your case must be found and addressed. Insist on a full explanation from your physician and if you are not satisfied, get a consult. I am less worried right now about a slightly low blood sugar, but if it's extreme or you feel ill, an explanation's required. ...Read more

A serious form of this is called poylcythemia vera, other conditions include living in high altitudes, tumors, heart&lung problems, etc. Specific treatment depends on the underlying cause. Do you know the official diagnosis? A more specific answer can be provided if you do. ...Read more

What is the treatment for a hematocrit of 61 and a hemoglobin of over 21?

What is the treatment for a hematocrit of 61 and a hemoglobin of over 21?

W/u & phlebotomy: You should go to see a hematologist to get more work-up to find out the cause of your polycythemia and you definitely will need to get phlebotomy now. If this is a bone marrow problem- phlebotomy is the treatment. If this is caused by other conditions- like lung, kidney/liver problems, drugs etc- the treatment is to fix the underlying condition. Go to see a hematologist-or er if you have symptoms. ...Read more

My mother has her hemoglobin level as 8 .what treatment should be given for her?

Find the cause: Hopefully a cause can be found and the anemia treated without transfusion being necessary. If she's short of breath from her anemia, she may need a transfusion to keep her safe. But she must insist that a cause be found. ...Read more

My wife has underactive thyroid and also lack of hemoglobin. Treatment has been continuing for 25 days but she suffers from hair loss.What's reason

Multiple causes: If she's only 21 years old and has anemia, the source of her anemia needs to be discovered and corrected. Most commonly in females, it it is due to heavy menstrual bleeding. Either way, anemia of any source can cause hair loss. Given her anemia, she should have her iron levels checked and possibly take iron supplements if needed. Similarly low thyroid hormones can cause hair loss. ...Read more

Do I qualify for a iron infusion therapy with a hemoglobin of 9 and iron of 21 L and iron sat of 5L?

Do I qualify for a iron infusion therapy with a hemoglobin of 9 and iron of 21 L and iron sat of 5L?

First things first: You must ask first why you are iron deficient. Heavy periods? Pregnancies? Could you be pregnant now? Non-supplementing vegetarian? Bleeding stomach ulcer / cancer? Iron infusions are not for casual use, though they are easier on the gut than iron tablets. There are injectable forms too. Do yourself a favor and focus on the big picture. ...Read more
