Why does blood viscosity work as narrow normal range?

Why does blood viscosity work as narrow normal range?

I think I understand: You are asking what keeps the viscosity of blood within a narrow range. It's physical chemistry -- the blood must contain either some very abnormal red cells, a great oversupply of red cells, or abundant gigantic protein molecules (notably excess igm) before the viscosity of the blood will alter. For serum, the viscosity reflects abnormal proteins. ...Read more

Muscle (Definition)

It is a body tissue that has the ability to contract. It shortens and generates force. It relaxes and returns to its original length. Muscles move joints, stabilize the body, move air and food through the organs, act as valves for bladder, bowel and other organs. They control movement of the eyes. They help us express ourselves by changing the shape of our ...Read more

Why the blood viscosity in smokers is higher than in normal people "non-smokers"?

Lower oxygen: And carbon monoxide in cigarette smoke stimulate the body to make more red blood cells to try to compensate for the lower oxygen levels in the blood. Another good reason not to smoke! ...Read more

How effective is a detox plan to blood viscosity?

Detox?: Detox for alcohol or drug abuse? What do you mean detox for 'blood viscosity'? Usually a young human, who's kidneys and liver and immune system are working well does not need any sort of special program or product for an 'ambiguous' detoxing. ...Read more

I have raised plasma viscosity in blood is it harmfull and does it cause any problems?

I have raised plasma viscosity in blood is it harmfull and does it cause any problems?

Yes, it may: Depending on how high is your serum viscosity level and off course- what the cause of the elevation of serum viscosity- some serious problem can happen. When the serum viscosity is above certain level -above 4- you could have symptoms like headaches, chest pain, shortness of breath, stroke-like symptoms etc. The higher the level the higher your risk is. Discuss in detail with your doctor. ...Read more

Very low sperm count. Low morphology. And viscosity is vicious. What should be done to improve them all. Plz guide in detail.

Very low sperm count. Low morphology. And viscosity is vicious. What should be done to improve them all. Plz guide in detail.

Short answer only: HealthTap is a short answer format only. I'd suggest repeating the test again making certain the circumstances (abstinence, time to get sample to lab) are perfect. If it's still low see a doctor. You can also do an online consultation with HealthTap doctors, but not in the short answer boxes. Good luck! ...Read more

Men can take clomid (clomiphene): Men too can take Clomid (clomiphene) to Increase their sperm counts. Doses and timing is different than women. It may take them longer, few months to see results. Talk to a Endocrinologist or reproductive endocrinology. Now adverse effects of all drugs before starting any therapy. ...Read more

Semen analysis: First, both of you should be evaluated for infertility if you have been trying for over 1y to conceive a child.

Second, he needs to be examined for varicocele and also have another semen analysis. There are multiple treatment avenues, but first he needs to see a urologist. ...Read more

I donated blood recently and I was told that my blood viscosity is pretty high. What can I do about it?

Depends: Most common reason is volume depletion (aka: dehydration), so just need more fluids. Can be due to other things, so should ask your dr if any concern for other health conditions present. ...Read more

Additional tests: You need additional tests to look for the cause of your low sperm count and other possible causes of male infertility. These can include:
Scrotal ultrasound.
Hormone testing.
• Post-ejaculation urinalysis.
• Genetic tests. When sperm concentration is extremely low, genetic causes could be involved. A blood test can reveal whether there are subtle changes in the Y chromosome — signs of a genetic abnormality. Genetic testing might also be ordered to diagnose various congenital or inherited syndromes.
• Testicular biopsy.
• Anti-sperm antibody tests. These tests, which are used to check for immune cells (antibodies) that attack sperm and affect their ability to function, are not common.
• Specialized sperm function tests. A number of tests can be used to check how well your sperm survive after ejaculation, how well they can penetrate an egg and whether there's any problem attaching to the egg. Generally, these tests are rarely performed and often do not significantly change treatment recommendations.
• Transrectal ultrasound. A small lubricated wand is inserted into your rectum to check your prostate, and for blockages of the tubes that carry semen (ejaculatory ducts and seminal vesicles). ...Read more

I had my semen analysis yesterday report says Volume 3ml Super count 50million Viscosity is high Liquification time is 2hrs Motality is 60% Ph 7.5 Is it ok. I am worried about viscosity and liquification time. Please help Any medicines?

Semen analysis: The semen analysis as above is normal except for the liquefaction which is more that 20 minutes and abnormal. However if your female significant other evaluation is normal and she is unable to conceive in one year, you can ask your gynecologist for a trial of insemination with a processed sperm as an option. ...Read more

Is there a difference between a fertile sperm and infertile sperm? I mean the shape and the viscosity

Is there a difference between a fertile sperm and infertile sperm? I mean the shape and the viscosity

Here are some...: The significance of sperm shape and semen viscosity has evolved & changed over the decades especially over the past 10-15 yrs. Currently, normal sperm shape appears in only about 4%, and semen is expected to liquefy in 30 minutes; if not, high viscosity is considered but its significance remains unknown. For infertility, make sure both parties need to be simultaneously evaluated and counseled. ...Read more

Sa:motility (rapid)=19.4%-slow=14%-immotile=59.6%/total sperm count=56mill/abnormal forms=80%/vitality=45%/viscosity=normal. What's your opinion?

See answer: If you compare the results with the 2010 world health organization reference values for normal semen parameters, this semen sample is close to being within normal limits: sperm count very good, morphology adequate, and motility and vitality slightly low. Not knowing any further details, might consider a repeat semen sample at some point given variability that can occur. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Semen analysis. Volume=7.3, ph=7.5, motility=30%, normal morphology=80%, count=30million, viscosity normal. Is this test good for becoming a father?

Semen analysis. Volume=7.3, ph=7.5, motility=30%, normal morphology=80%, count=30million, viscosity normal. Is this test good for becoming a father?

Analysis, Not Odds: A semen analysis evaluates several important aspects of ejaculate. The most important are volume of ejaculate, concentration of sperm, % moving, % moving mostly straight, and the appearance of the sperm. If your count is 30m then you have a low sperm count (< 15m/cc) (30m/7.3 cc = 4.1 m/cc) with reduced motility if this has been your only test, recheck it in 6 weeks. See a urologist if persists. ...Read more

Does propranolol 10 or fluoxetine 10 scale the blood viscosity up or down? Could they dilute the blood?

Does propranolol 10 or fluoxetine 10 scale the blood viscosity up or down? Could they dilute the blood?

No: Blood viscosity can be much more affected by dehydration than by propanolol or fluoxetine. Make sure you're drinking plenty of fresh water -- at least half your body weight in ounces daily. For instance, if you weigh 200 pounds, drink at least 100 ounces of water/day. Alcohol and soft drinks don't count! ...Read more

My husband has high viscosity, normal count but also some of the sperm were twitching and they died at 2 hours. What does that mean?

My husband has high viscosity, normal count but also some of the sperm were twitching and they died at 2 hours. What does that mean?

Abnormal motility: It sounds like you're talking about abnormal motility. The sperm dying within two hours is not important. The percentage of sperm moving about abnormally is important. ...Read more
