My red cells are low. After 3 months of iron pills my count went from 126 to only 128. My body is not holding iron or even making red blood cells. I don't have celiac symptoms. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: Iron will not heat. Iron worked last week, went

the heating element has failed....probably

You would need to open your iron to test the thermostat:
Open the Iron up. Use a volt meter to test the thermostat and heating element. With the thermostat turned to a high heat setting. It won't matter which electrical connection at the thermostat you place the probes on, just put one on one side and the other on the other terminal at the thermostat. If you find continuity(Meter needle jumps, or digital read out show little or no resistance found) your thermostat is ok. Then place your probes across the two leads on the heating element. You should read little or no resistance. Any parts found showing an open open circuit(Zero on your meter) will need replacing.Contact small appliance.com and they should be able to order one for you. If there is anything else I can do for you please don't hesitate to ask.

SOURCE: a hemotologists finds high white blood cell count

The medical term for high levels of white blood cells in the body is leukocytosis. This condition can be caused by medications such as allopurinol, chloroform, aspirin, epinephrine, corticosteroids, quinine, heparin and triamterene. It can also be caused by infection, bone marrow diseases, tissue damage, inflammation, stress and immune system disorders that increase white blood cell production. This condition may not cause any signs or symptoms, but it can cause fever, easy bleeding and bruising, weakness, fatigue, malaise, dizziness, faintness, difficulty breathing, unintended weight loss, trouble thinking and pain or tingling in the abdomen, legs or arms.

SOURCE: low blood sodium symptons

Please go to this link on the Mayo clinic website. They have good advice. I hope you are feeling better soon:
http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/hyponatremia/basics/causes/con-20031445
Here is part of the information they have:
Sodium plays a key role in your body. It helps maintain normal blood pressure, supports the work of your nerves and muscles, and regulates your body's fluid balance.
A normal sodium level is between 135 and 145 milliequivalents per liter (mEq/L) of sodium. Hyponatremia occurs when the sodium in your blood falls below 135 mEq/L.
Many possible conditions and lifestyle factors can lead to hyponatremia, including:

  • Certain medications. Some medications, such as some water pills (diuretics), antidepressants and pain medications, can cause you to go to the bathroom and empty your bladder or perspire more than normal.
  • Heart, kidney and liver problems. Congestive heart failure and certain diseases affecting the kidneys or liver can cause fluids to accumulate in your body, which dilutes the sodium in your body, lowering the overall level.
  • Syndrome of inappropriate anti-diuretic hormone (SIADH).In this condition, high levels of the anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) are produced, causing your body to retain water instead of excreting it normally.
  • Chronic, severe vomiting or diarrhea. This causes your body to lose fluids and electrolytes, such as sodium.
  • Drinking too much water. Because you lose sodium through sweat, drinking too much water during endurance activities, such as marathons and triathlons, can dilute the sodium content of your blood. Drinking too much water at other times can also cause low sodium.
  • Dehydration. Taking in too little fluid can also be a problem. If you get dehydrated, your body loses fluids and electrolytes.
  • Hormonal changes. Adrenal gland insufficiency (Addison's disease) affects your adrenal glands' ability to produce hormones that help maintain your body's balance of sodium, potassium and water. Low levels of thyroid hormone also can cause a low blood-sodium level.
  • The recreational **** *******. This amphetamine increases the risk of severe and even fatal cases of hyponatremia.

If you have high red blood cell count what can you do to get it down, is giving blood once a month a solution


It depends on what is causing your red blood count to go up. Your best answer will come from your Dr. Blood letting is not the answer.

What causes low red blood count


Anemia can be caused by pregnancy (usually normal), disease (eg cancer), bleeding (eg menstruation) or an infection somewhere (eg kidneys).

Since it can possibly indicate something serious, pay attention to your doctor and go with that advice.

I am just getting over the flu, pnemonia, underlying copd and a fribalation. I have been on a steroid and Would like to know how it effects white blood cells


It's pretty complicated.
Having a viral infection can lower lymphocytes, a bacterial infection will raise polymorphs, steroids do not alter total body white cells but makes the polymorph white cells a bit "lazy" so sometimes they appear high but are functioning less well.
Atrial fibrillation and COPD per se shouldn't alter cell counts
What meds you take can do

I have low white cell count what causes this


Eat healthy and improve the White blood cell count in a few days.

White blood cells are manufactured in bone marrow - the spongy tissue inside some of your larger bones. A low white blood cell countusually is caused by: Viral infections that temporarily disrupt the work of bone marrow.

There are other conditions that lead to lower counts and they may require Doctors consultation.
Certain disorders present at birth (congenital) that involve diminished bone marrow function. Low white blood cell count

Blood pressure is staying up over 140 over 78 head hurts body hurts most times 100


140/78 is not too bad and not considered high.
I had high blood pressure of 170/92.I controlled it by cutting out processed food and alcohol. In 2008 my father died and my bp went up. After a few months the doctors put me on bp tablets and told me I would be on them for life . Four months ago I stopped drinking alcohol and stopped eating bad stuff . Im two stone lighter now and my bp is stable. I have not taken BP tablets for 3 months now.
BP can raise because of salt intake, alcohol, stress and lack of sleep.
If your head hurts it is because your blood is pumping a little harder.I used to get lots of migraines.
Its easier to get tablets from the doctor but its best to look at yourself and self fix it.
