Should i be concerned? My 2 year old is constantly sick even after being on antibiotics, she had to have a blood transfusion 3 months ago because her hemoglobin was at a 5 but every time i take her to her doctor he says she has a virus and it will go away

It : It is not clear to me what is causing her anemia and need for a blood transfusion. That is a very rare situation for a two year old. Asking her hematologist (blood specialist) what is causing that may be helpful. An immunology specialist may be able to advise on why she is always getting sick. But starting with her hematologist would be the best advice. ...Read more

My 2 yr old son had bun, bun/creatinine ratio and hemoglobin done. His hemoglobin was 10.8, bun 17, and creatinine 40. What does this mean?Concerning?

Ok, with explanation: I suspect the creatinine was 0.40, not 40. Unless the units are different. Either way, the BUN and creatinine are fine in this case, and what you'd expect. The ratio, bun/cr is going to be huge since the creatinine is expected to be low. Don't worry about that. The hemoglobin is a little low, but not hugely low. Talk with your doc about iron rich foods and a recheck in a few months. ...Read more

I am 19 year old boy.my hemoglobin is 12.8 . is it normal?

Normal: Yes, this is in the normal range. But still make sure you get plenty of iron in your diet - this is one of the most commonly missed nutrients in teenagers diet. You need to keep making those red blood cells and you need iron to do that! ...Read more

Needs more tests: I would follow up with your doctor today. Your son needs more tests. This could be something very serious. You may need a blood doctor to help determine the cause and treatment of the low hemoglobin. Please call your pediatrician today. They can help you find the right doctors. ...Read more

All a bit high: Normal hemoglobin at this age would be ~12, hct~36 &wbc ~9, 000.The values would be more consistent with adulthood or a child with some dehydration or a condition causing increased generation of red cells. ...Read more

Rbc count is 4.6 mill/mm3 ,hemoglobin count is 13.6 g/dL. lymphocytes-14.30 % monocytes12.1%having dyspnea,I am 19 year old man.is this normal level?

Anemia not problem: Generally speaking, dyspnea (shortness of breath), may be caused by anemia, heart disease, or lung disease. Also, sometimes anxiety can make people feel short of breath. Your hemoglobin concentration (13.6 g/dL) is normal, so your dyspnea is not due to anemia. You will need to see a doctor to investigate why you are short of breath. ...Read more
