Why Would A Chf Patient Have A Low Hemoglobin Hematocrit
Treatment effect: In point of fact, someone with untreated CHF will have a lower h&h. These measurementa go up with "hemoconcentration" which reflects the volume contracting effects of treatment for chf. Bottom-line: in the absence of an unrelated cause, elevated h&h reflect treatment, not disease. ...Read more
Heart failure is a complex set of conditions in which the heart "fails" to pump a normal amount of blood with each beat. This can be due to poor squeezing function (systolic heart failure) and/or a stiff heart incapable of filling normally (diastolic heart failure). Common symptoms include swelling and trouble breathing, particularly when ...Read more
Various: Iron deficiency is only one of many factors that can cause anemia (low level of hemoglobin/hematocrit). Deficiency in other nutrient like vit b12, folate, (folic acid) or anemia due to other chronic inflammation/disease, destruction of the red blood cells, drug induced, bone marrow failure, bleeding, other red blood cell disorders etc can cause anemia as well. See you doctor and have further evaluation. ...Read more
I have low hemoglobin/hematocrit but my iron levels are that of a healthy person; a liver problem?
3 of 4 of my children have Low Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, MCV, MCVH....High RDW. I believe that affect their education performance and behavior.
Maybe, maybe not: The levels needed to interfere with performance vary with the skill set being reviewed. Many with minor hemoglobin defects have lower values than the norm for their lifetime and function quite well. Lead poisoning can also cause lower values, but it is the lead, not the blood cells that cause impairments. In short, your statement provides nonspecific data so a more specific answer is not possible. ...Read more
What does it mean to have low hemoglobin, hematocrit, mch, mchc, and high platelet count, and sedimentation rate?
Is this mild anemia or moderate? Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, mcv, mch, mchc. High rdw, esr, platelets. Iron 3 (11-27umol/L).saturation 0.03 (0.20-0.50). B12 162 (198-615).
Anemia found on blood test. Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, mcv, mch, high rdw. Have had heavy periods for a few years but why would it just show up now?
It takes time to exh:
We all carry extra reserves of blood and iron stores in our body which can make up for moderate blood losses for a long time. Only when the reserve is exhausted and there is no more iron left in the body will your blood tests start showing up Anemia.
You need to ask your doctor for providing you the raw materials (like Iron supplements) to help you make extra blood. ...Read more
Hi, I had finger cramp+tingling+nausea&dizziness in both hands after doing exercise. My blood test shows low hemoglobin & hematocrit and high esr.
Need the numbers:
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have helped to know the actual values. It is likely that you have iron deficiency anemia which is common in menstruating women. Take oral iron and multivitamins.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more

What do low levels of hemoglobin, hematocrit & red blood cell coupled with high level of bilirubin indicate?
Anemia hyperbilirubi: Anemia and hyperbilirubinemia in a 50 yr old which is acute indicate one of two things, either hemolysis from unknown cause or underlying disease such as chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, lymphoma, viruses hiv, bacterial pneumonias, connective tissue disease e.g. Systemic lupus erythematosis. Herefitary anemias thalasemias, sickle cell anemia. Liver disease, associated with anemia due to other dise. ...Read more
Numbers are numbers: Lab results are numbers, and numbers are just numbers. They have little meaning without looking at the whole person. Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, and red blood cell counts means blood cells are not being made fast enough, are being lost (through bleeding), are being broken up, or any combination of such problems. Glucose goes up from increased body stress, inadequate insulin, I.V. Glucose, etc.... ...Read more
I have a positive ANA with a speckled pattern and low RBC, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit levels what could that be indicative of?
AUTOIMMUNE DZ: Autoimmune disease like Luous and Ra. You need to follow up with your doctor to see if you have other stigmata present and get more through lab testing done. If they are low positive they are a nonspecific finding and may not be a sign for concern. I would recommend a gluten free diet to decrease inflammation Wholeapproach. Com and gutbliss. Com. Also the vitamins I recommend on rejuvenationscience. ...Read more
Hemoglobin, hematocrit, MCV high. MPV low. Doc. Seems to think I am alcoholic, but I do not like booze. Never did. What does this mean?
Thank you for informing about Epilepsy, Tegretol, Dilantin
Discuss with Neurologist Bone marrow suppression and Folic acid Deficiency due to Tegretol causing Megaloblastic Anemia with High Hemoglobin and MCV.
See Hematologist for possible diagnosis of Vitamin B 12 deficiency, Hypothyroidism, effect of smoking, poor heart or lung function and effect of medications.

What do blood results mean? TIBC, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, RBC & MCH all LOW. Retic count & RDW are HIGH. Iron, Tran Sat, Ferriten, MCV NORMAL
24 weeks pregnant. Hemoglobin, hematocrit & RBC in normal range. Ferritin really low at only 8 ug/L, cut off >14. Should I worry about iron levels?
Take treatment: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, iron deficiency is easily treated with over the counter iron supplements. You should be under the care of an OB and s/he should be consulted for proper treatment. ...Read more
What does it mean when your RBC count is high, hemoglobin, hematocrit, absolute eosinophils, mcv, mch, mchc are low and the RDW and platelet count high?
D/w your doctor: You should go to see your doctor and discuss the result of your blood work with your doctor. To answer your question will depend on how high is the high level mentioned here and how low is the low levels are here? I need to see the actual numbers to really interprete the result. There are many different things that can cause from non significant, iron deficiency to thalassemia trait etc. D/w md. ...Read more
Few months ago CBC with low rbc, wbc, hemoglobin, hematocrit, platelets. Since then CBC normal, but some low platelets. Often feel achy, could be hiv?
HIV does not Hide: If you are worried about an HIV infection then you go get an HIV test. HIV is diagnosable by testing from seven days after exposure onwards with the correct tests. It does not hide and we no longer need to worry about ambiguous symptoms. If your HIV tests are negative then I do not understand the concern. There is nothing in a CBC test that would represent an early HIV infection. ...Read more

What could be the cause of high hemoglobin, hematocrit, MCV and MCH when fluids are consistently consumed?
I am taking iron supplements but my hemoglobin & hematocrit numbers keep getting lower. What am I doing wrong?
Anemia: Anemia means red blood cells are lower than normal; sometimes low in number or volume, sometimes low in hemoglobin (the oxygen carrying protein.) There are many causes of anemia besides menstrual bleeding & iron deficiency. Clues to the cause of anemia can be gathered by careful history & review of the lab data. Consider consulting a medical doctor in the office or an Inbox Consult on HealthTap. ...Read more
Hgb/Hct: Hemoglobin (HGB) is a protein that contains/binds iron in red blood cells (rbcs). This metalloprotein (metal containing protein) transports oxygen. Hematocrit (hct) is the volume percentage (%) of rbcs in blood. It can be determined directly by spinning a capillary tube of blood in a centrifuge. In a CBC it is usually determined by multiplying the red cell count by the mean cell volume (mcv). ...Read more

Of red blood cell number. Classically this was the "packed cell volume." blood was placed in a microtube and spun in a centrifuge. The rbcs settle to the bottom and one measures the height in the tube and reported as a percentage. Now determined by an automated machine. A typical hct is about 3 ...Read more
