What is the risk of low hemoglobin in blood during pregnancy?
My last blood test result shows my hemoglobin is 10.3, which is normal is 11.5-16.5. Recently, my husband told me that sometimes I Iook very pale.
According to my LMP I'm 35 weeks but according to my ultrasound I'm 30 weeks and 4 days.
Mine has been low for a while and was actually lower than my 2 year old daughters. I guess it is normal they just told me to take SlowFE the opposite time as my prenatal. Mine was 9 when I had my sugar checked and then Friday they done blood work and it was only a 10. I am 38+ weeks so it has been a while and still has not gone up much. It will make your skin pale and makes me very tired. Just try to get it built up as much as possible b/c after you have the baby you will bleed a lot which will also make it low. You will be too tired to take care of that baby and if you breastfeed you will also need that??/ Good Luck (+ info
What is the normal llevel of hemoglobin?
What is the normal level of hemoglobin in blood, and at what level does it become anemia?
Men: 13.8 to 17.2 g/dl
Women: 12.1 to 15.1 g/dl
If Hb is lower than normal range it is classed as anaemia, everything is relative. (+ info
What can cause lowered potassium and hemoglobin?
My father was admitted to the hospital Monday afternoon for rectal bleeding. He had an upper and lower GI today. My mother just called me to see if I could find some causes of lowered potassium and hemoglobin. Could someone please help? Thank you very much.
His problem is directly related to his bleeding.
His hematocrit is low because he's lost so much blood.
As for his potassium... was he taking any diuretic medications? It could also just be from the blood loss. He may need a blood transfusion to make up for the loss.
He's in the right place though.
Good luck! (+ info
How does a vegetarian raise their hemoglobin, hemotocrit and HDL cholesterol?
I'm 26 years old and I participate in drug studies for a living and recently got rejected from one because my hemoglobin and hemotocrit were too low. My HDL cholesterol was too low as well. I'm thinking this is because I'm a recent vegetarian... its been about 5 months since I've stopped eating animal flesh. Otherwise, I'm healthy. I don't smoke and my BMI is a low 19.
Since getting rejected, I've started taking a multivitamin with iron, started drinking one glass of red wine each night (to help increase my HDL) and started exercising every day as well. Any thoughts on what else I could be doing that I'm not already? I want to screen for another study in a week or so.
Your HDL is effected by your intake of saturated vs. unsaturated fats and your exercise level. Your hemoglobin is directly related to your intake of iron. Your hematocrit should not be low unless you've experienced blood loss, or your diet is very insufficient of protein and iron.
It's very important that you get adequate protein despite being a vegetarian. You might try soy products or even protein supplement shakes. Green leafy veggies (spinach is great and yummy fresh or cooked!) have lots of iron. For your HDL, make sure you are getting enough physical exercise. Also make sure the majority of the fat you are taking in is unsaturated. The red wine is an acceptable supplement, but won't do much on it's own.
Hope this helps! Best wishes! (+ info
How long will it take to raise my hemoglobin blood count (so as to get rid of anemia)?
I want to join the military, but I have anemia. My hemoglobin blood count is 8 when it has to be 12. I am taking 3 iron pills a day. How long will it take me to raise my blood count and get rid of anemia?
With that low of a hemoglobin level, I hope that you are consulting a doctor. It would be good to get your ferritin checked.
If you have no health problems, other than too low iron in your diet, you can expect to be where you are going in 60 to 90 days. Take vitamin C (maybe 125mg) or drink 8 oz of orange juice along with the tablets, for best absorption. Don't take calcium, including things like Tums, or eat dairy products within 2 hours before and after the iron pills. Calcium interferes with absorption. (+ info
What happens when red blood cells have a high hemoglobin count?
What can you take if the hemoglobin count is too high?.. and if someone where to die of it wat will be the illness? What oraganelle does it affect?
Hemoglobin is the globular protein molecule that packs the red blood cells and carries oxygen from the lungs to the cells throughout the body. Its made of four associated polypeptide chains, each holding the mineral iron. You may get an Iron toxicity that is known as hemosiderosis, a conkition characterized by large deposits of the iron storage protein hemosiderin in the liver and other tissues. There is also a link between heart disease and elevated iron. There may be an association between iron and some cancers. And large doses of iron supplements cause GI distress, including constipation, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. (+ info

can some one tell me what happens to hemoglobin after they release oxygen?
I know that hemoglobins carries the oxygen in the blood and release them to the tissues in our body, but what happens to hemoglobins after they finish releasing the oxygens?
Do they dissolve into the plasma?
When does it turn back to their subunits Heme and Globin?
Also does hemoglobin loses its affinity for oxygen after they release its? Or will they bind to other oxygens?
after they release the oxygen, they are considered to be deoxygenated... or something along that line. They remain in the plasma and become a darker red. It turns back into heme and globin at the end of its month or 2 in the body, bc that's its lifespan. they also pick up CO2 on the way back to the heart through the veins and exchange the carbon dioxide for oxygen. hemoglobin (erythrocytes) do not have nuclei, so they can not reproduce themselves. they are created in red bone marrow and are separated into heme and globin in the liver and spleen. nething else, just ask me!

How long is it going to take to get my hemoglobin up?
How long is it going to take to get my hemoglobin up from 36 to 38 with iron tablets?
Are you a red meat eater? It is better to get iron naturally from food than to have it as a supplement. Watercress is good for iron if you don't eat meat.
Do you know why your iron levels are low? Do make your Doctor check why you have low iron. It maybe be something more serious.
I dont think you can find out how long it will take you for your levels to go up because everyone absorbs it in a different way. (+ info
