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 (folic acid) due to poor nutrition. Go see your family doc regarding your concerns.

Diet (Definition)

Refers to all the physical matter humans (like all living creatures) must take in on a recurring basis; only partially for energy. Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

What are the Newest treatments for intermediate to high risk MDS for a 70 years old man. He has RCMD. No blasts. Low hemoglobin & platelets?

Supportive care: Not sure about newest TX, but "Supportive care may be the most appropriate TX for older people...this group of people being unable to tolerate the stronger TX used for MDS. Supportive care does not aim to treat the disease but can help alleviate symptoms such as shortness of breath...bruising or bleeding." SEE http://www. Leukaemia. Org.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

Hemoglobin 23, hematocrit 69 in my child age 7.5. Going for phlebotomy for 2 weeks. Very slow progress. What is the treatment I am worried. Advice?

Hemoglobin 23, hematocrit 69 in my child age 7.5. Going for phlebotomy for 2 weeks. Very slow progress. What is the treatment I am worried. Advice?

Polycythemia: Any condition that causes an increase in red blood cell production by the bone marrow will cause an elevated hematocrit. 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.

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

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.

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.

My toddlers iron level at 9.1 and low hemoglobin consistently even although he eats a diet rich in iron and vit c. What can cause this?

Needs iron supplemen: Your son seems to have an iron deficiency anemia and needs iron supplement. Iron rich diet does not provide enough iron to elevate his hemoglobin level and replete iron reserve. Check with his pediatrician.

I've had severe anemia and an extremely low hemoglobin level for 5 years. How can I treat and possibly cure this condition?

Iron: But first, you need to find the cause. Are you bleeding, destroying your blood, or not making blood. The most common cause is that you are losing blood. You need to talk with your doctor. Hope this helps.

What is the treatment of normal haemoglobin with low R.B.Cs and low hematocrite and other profile is completely normal?

What is the treatment of normal haemoglobin with low R.B.Cs and low hematocrite and other profile is completely normal?

Likely nothing. ..: If you just have a very mildly low red blood cell mass and very mildly low hematocrit but a normal hemaglobin, it's not likely anything concerning especially if all your other red blood cell indices are normal as you mention. It does really depend on what your other numbers look like and how low "low" really is?

Haemoglobin is low 6.3gms and RA factor positive. How to increase haemoglobin as soon as possible and quick cure or home remedy or treatment? Any tips

It really depends on: What caused the anemia, however, in any event, raising you're Hemaglobin is a slow (months) process short of a transfusion.

24 male. 135lbs. Most my diet is veg, bloods showed low end hemoglobin. Retested few months later showed higher than usual. Why is this?

24 male. 135lbs. Most my diet is veg, bloods showed low end hemoglobin. Retested few months later showed higher than usual. Why is this?

Take charge here: Please talk with your physician. If you are a vegetarian, you need to supplement. Despite all the disinformation from the "vegetarian community", it is difficult to get adequate iron, calcium, iodine, vitamin A, vitamin D, calcium, zinc, and vitamin B12. General ill-health occurs just from iron deficiency before anemia appears. Hemoglobin varies by a % or two just based on your hydration.
