Normocytic hypochromic anaemia causes and symptoms?

Normocytic hypochromic anaemia causes and symptoms?

Early IDA possible: Hypochromic suggests low iron (which can be measured by ferritin, transferrin, etc). Usually this would be from blood loss. Usually iron deficiency anemia (ida) is also assoc w/ microcytic (low mcv) red blood cells (rbcs). It depends on the numbers, other tests & history, but could be early iron deficiency/blood loss &/or more than one process -- eg b12/folate deficiency & ida. See md. ...Read more

I want to put on some weight as I am aneamic, suffering from normocytic hypochromic anemia? Is beef the cure?

Normocytic anemia: An anemia described as normocytic (normal red cell size) and hypochromic (low iron concentration in cells) does not make a diagnosis of iron deficiency (for which beef would be one cure). Typical iron deficiency is microcytic (small cells) and hypochromic. So there is probably something else going on. Don't jump to the beef quite yet. ...Read more

What are causes of normocytic hyperchromic anemia?

Hemolytic anemia: Anemia can be due to many factors and to even begin to know, clues are found on the size (normo, macro, micro) and coloration (hypo (pale color), normochromic (normal red color). When red cells lack a normal center, as in spherical forms, " hyperchromic" is used loosely, though the correct term may be spherocytes. Hemolytic anemia, with many causes, lead to normochromic "hyperchromic"anemia. ...Read more

I feel pain in right side of stomach, sometimes on front and sometimes on back side. Reports show neutophila / normocytic normochromic, u/s is normal.

Gallbladder: Pain in the right upper abdomen and which radiates to the back suggests gallbladder dysfunction. In such cases an ultrasound might be negative. Often the next study to be ordered is an hidda scan, which is a nuclear medicine scan that, unlike the ultrasound which shows architecture of the gallbladder, shows function of this organ. ...Read more

What does mild normocytic normochromic anemia for age and sex and absolute lymphopenia mean?

Anemia: Anemia refers to your hemoglobin and hematocrit (packed cell volume) levels. Essentially these tell you whether or not you have enough red blood cells. Your red cells are normal in size (normocytic) and have a normal amount of hemoglobin (normochromic). Causes include aplastic, posthemorrhagic, and hemolytic anemias and anemia of chronic disease. Lymphopenia = decreased lymphocytes. ...Read more
