Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts.

Does my dizziness and my mesentric enlarged lymph nodes have anything to do with my high mpv level and low glucose level?
Let's talk: Your dizziness could indeed but caused by low glucose. An enlarged mesenteric lymph most likely has nothing to do with the dizziness.

If that lymph node persists I would suggest a ct guided needle biopsy so a pathologist can evaluate you. ...Read more

Intestinal vein clot: This is a clot in the main vein draining the intestines.

If it was narrowed by a clot then you need an anti-coagulant. If something else specify ...Read more

Open surgery is occasionally needed to increase blood supply to bowel. Avoiding bowel ischemia is essential. Ischemic bowel has HIGH mortality. ...Read more
