High HB Side Effects In Pregnant Women?
hello doctor, I want to ask you about HB. what is the high impact of HB on pregnant women? is it related to increased blood pressure?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hb or hemoglobin is a part of red blood cells that also binds oxygen where this oxygen is delivered through the red blood cells to be used throughout the body. hemoglobin can function properly if it binds optimally with iron. High Hb reflects a lot of red blood cells. If enough red blood cells are not accompanied by blood plasma (fluid) it can increase viscosity or in general increase blood viscosity. Blood with high viscosity can increase the pressure in the blood vessels but not only depends on the viscosity or viscosity of this blood, of course it is also influenced by various biomolecular factors, one of which is high levels of salt in the blood which also affects high blood pressure. In addition, stiffness or damage to blood vessels also greatly affects the amount of blood pressure.
Thus it can be said that high Hb does not immediately increase blood pressure. In general, pregnant women need sufficient Hb values in order to provide adequate oxygen to the fetus. In general, high blood pressure in pregnant women occurs because of the addition of body fluids including blood and is also influenced by hormones of course. Consult about your Hb value and blood pressure with the doctor who treats you in order to achieve your health and of course the fetus optimally.
That's all I can say, hopefully it's useful.
