I was continuously coughing and my spo2 level was 91-92 is it normal?

I was continuously coughing and my spo2 level was 91-92 is it normal?

See answer: An spo2 of 91 is low. If that number occurred only while you were coughing, it is understandable as the continuous coughing would have prevented your lungs from expanding fully and filling with a normal amount of air. If the level of 91 persisted when you were not having a coughing fit, then it would not be normal. ...Read more

Can vary: It can vary but it s still in the 90s. If you are having shortness of breath or wheezing the number would be lower also cold fingers can cause a change in the meters ability to detect accurately. ...Read more

What foods lower clearitine levels to a normal level?

What foods lower clearitine levels to a normal level?

None: Think you meant creatine level. It is a marker of how well the kidney functions by how it lets out the muscle waste product (/building block). Old school said low-protein diet could help ease workload of kidney and might lower creatine (some), but if more than a few 1/10s of a point, not likely to be done by diet. Can potentially slow progression of disease. Can consult dietitian for advice. ...Read more

My  6 mos old baby has hb level of 11.8 and she has been prescribed orafer xt by her paed. Her wt. Is lower than normal. Is it ok to give so?

Yes: The HGB lever is a little low for age & it is common to give iron as an initial way of assuring baby has the iron needed to build blood. Failure to improve her level after iron may require additional studies. The level is not at a worrisome point. ...Read more

Gpt level is 117 where normal range (0-45) & got is 45 when high end is 40. Whats possible causes?

Need more info: The liver enzymes are mildly elevated. The commonest cause is alcohol intake. If you drink, stop entirely for three months and re do the test. Are you on any medication? Have you been tested for hepatitis c? All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that. ...Read more

Rising Blood Counts: I assume you mean your white count rose to 18, 500, from a normal of 10, 000 in less than a week. Without knowing the rest of your history, it is hard to answer conclusively. Are you being treated for an illness? If not, that degree of elevated white count either indicates an infection or a blood dyscrasia, and needs to be thoroughly investigated. ...Read more

Bipolarity: Lithium is used for a variety of mental health conditions and symptoms. Most commonly it is used for bipolar disorder.
