Blood Is Never Normal Despite Frequent Transfusions?
Hello … my wife has a blood deficiency, and her blood has never been normal, keeps on going back and forth, even though it is added by every transfusion to the hospital, it has no effect, and the doctor said that the most white blood loss compared to the red blood, So what to do and how is the correct way to stabilize my wife’s red blood and white blood? Thank you
Thank you for the question.
White blood cells (leukocytes) have many types. These white blood cells have important functions, especially in maintaining the body's immune system, mediating allergic reactions, and warding off poisons in the body. White blood cells are said to be low (leukopenia) if the levels are less than 4000 cells per microliter of blood. Most often, this condition occurs related to a viral infection (for example HIV) that interferes with the work of the spinal cord producing white blood cells. However, leukopenia can also occur due to other causes, such as autoimmune disorders (such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus), aplastic anemia, side effects of drugs (especially antibiotics, chemotherapy, radiotherapy), sarcoidosis (accumulation of inflammatory cells in the body), cancer or disease others that damage the spinal cord (eg leukemia), genetic disorders (such as Kostmann's syndrome, myelokathexis), malnutrition or certain vitamin deficiencies, hypersplenism, as well as severe infections that cause white blood cells to be used in excess of the speed of production.
Without knowing what is really happening to your wife, what is the exact level of red and white blood cells, and what clinical symptoms have your wife experienced so far, it is certainly not our authority to determine what the best way to deal with this condition. More precisely, you consult this directly with your doctor or internist who treats your wife, yes. He certainly understands your wife's condition based on the examination he does.
In the meantime, there are no specific suggestions we can recommend besides:
Make sure your wife's endurance is always excellent, such as routinely giving her a variety of nutritionally balanced food and drink intake, let her rest a lot, don't overwhelm her with tiring physical activities, accompany her to exercise and lead a healthy lifestyle
Prevent your wife from having an infection, such as by improving personal hygiene and the surrounding environment
Do not carelessly give your wife medicine, other than those given by doctors
Remind your wife not to smoke and stay away from drugs
Hope this helps ...
