Is 10.1 a very low hemoglobin blood count? I have Crohn's and constant diarrhea. Is that a low blood count?
This is a low Hgb... Normal hemoglobins are in the range of 13-16 g/dl, and are generally higher in men than women. From your brief history, there are many potential factors that could be contributing to anemia, including ( but not limited to) crohns dz, anemia of chronic disease, malabsorptions, blood loss, nutritional issues, etc. If you're a woman, menses contributes as well. You'd be wise to address with your dr.
15 days of vomiting and diarrhea came back as Crohn's after blood test and x rays. Is this normal in a 6 yr old? Yes, family history.
Possibly. A 6 year old can develop crohn's disease. Crohn's is uncommon at this age, but it does occur. But this cannot be definitively diagnosed with blood tests and x-rays. A pediatric gastroenterologist should evaluate your child. Endoscopy/colonoscopy with biopsies is the way to determine if the diagnosis is crohn's disease. Read more...
I am having loose stools for a month with blood coming time to time, I think because of hemmoroids. I also feel anaemic. Is that Crohn's disease?
Check this out. It certainly could be but could also be many other things. It is not normal to pass blood with your stool. If you are actually anemic and losing blood thru your GI tract, this needs to be worked up. I would recommend you go see your doc about this as soon as you can and find out what is going on!
