Rbc Abnormal Urinlaysis
Change in shape: Sickle cell anemia is caused by a single code letter change in the dna. This in turn alters one of the Amino Acids in the hemoglobin protein. Valine sits in the position where glutamic acid should be. The valine makes the hemoglobin molecules stick together, especially under conditions of low oxygen, forming long fibers that distort the shape of the red blood cells, and this brings on an attack. ...Read more

RBC: The red blood count is a concentration and reflects the balance between red cell production and destruction. Normal RBCs survive about 120 days, but that may be shortened if they are defective, coated with antibody or damaged by drugs. Deficiencies that impair production of hemoglobin, the key ingredient in rbcs, the bone marrow may respond to make more cells. Other stimuli can also alter the rate of production, including neoplasms and inflammation or kidney disease. ...Read more

Your pediatrician or their nurse can give you more information - ask them. ...Read more
