What Should A 2 Year Old Hemogobin Levek Be
Anion gap is 2 in a seven year old boy. His IGG was 107. He was diagnosed with ulcertive colitis several years ago. Should I be concerned?
IgG 107: IgG level appears to be low and that itself may predispose one to an autoimmune disease like UC. On the other hand, immunodeficiency may be associated with inflammatory bowel disease or unusual infection or parasitic invasion in the bowel. I would recommend that you contact an immunologist to get a good workup. ...Read more

You have "hepatitis": Hepatitis is defined as inflammation of liver cells, as is indicated by elevation in serum transaminases (ast and/or alt). Hepatitis can be caused by a variety of issues (infectious, ischemic, metabolic, toxic, infiltrative, alcohol-related, drugs, etc.).

My 5 yo son had hgb electrophoresis done. Only elevation was hgb F. It is 7.4. Appt is not for a month. What could this be?

It is associated with a higher number of middle ear infections during infancy/toddler years but is otherwise just a curiosity.It does have a distant genetic link to cleft palate. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm a 21 year old female with a soon to be 4 year old son, my height is 5ft 2 and I weigh 128lb , Is this a normal weight?
Yes: Yes, you have a normal weight. Also, instead of ht/wt I would recommend being more concerned about where is your weight, we want to avoid weight in the midsection, as excess belly fat can lead to diabetes and heart disease, so the goal for women is to have waist circumference (at belly button) less than 35 inches and ultimate goal would be 1/2 your height in inches which for you is 31 inches. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
