Infants With Low Hemoglobin While High Platelets?
I want a consultation, my child is only 11 months old, often hot at night ,. After checking the lab, and the results are LEUKOSIT 19,900 / HAEMOGLOBIN 9.9 g / dHHEMATOCRIT 30.6% TROMBOSIT 802,000 How is the treatment ?? What caused it?? thanks.
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
I try to help answer yes ...
Basically, normal blood values vary depending on age and sex. At the age of 11 months the average normal blood routine value is Hemoglobin = 10.5 - 13.0 Hematocrit = 33 - 38 Erythrocytes = 3.7 - 4.9 Thrombocytes = 250,000 - 600,000, Leukocytes = 6000 - 17,000.
Changes in routine blood values can explain the state of the body's health at that time and diagnose complaints experienced by patients. Such as inflammation, infection, abnormalities in the blood, autoimmune diseases, or disorders of one of the organs.
If red blood cells or hemoglobin in the blood drops, it could be due to lack of nutrition needed by red blood cells such as folic acid and vitamin B12, blood clotting disorders, to genetic disorders. While the increase in leukocytes (white blood cells) in the blood can indicate an infection in the body, such as bacteria, viruses, and even fungi, when the body is attacked by substances that are not recognized by the body, the white blood cells gather and fight to prevent infection, so the body will cause symptoms such as fever, weakness, body aches, decreased appetite. High platelet condition can also be caused by interference with blood clotting, because platelets function for the process of blood clotting, abnormalities in platelets can be because the body is in the process of healing from infection, inflammation, or it could be due to abnormalities in the bone marrow.
But to ensure that my advice is to consult a doctor directly, so that doctors can also do a physical examination, so that the diagnosis can be assessed thoroughly, to get appropriate treatment.
Some things you can do at home include, give complementary foods that contain balanced nutrition in the form of green vegetables, fruits and proteins such as red meat, chicken liver, fish. try to always wash your hands before and after preparing food for the baby, avoid contact with someone who is experiencing pain, because the immune protection at the age of the baby is still low so susceptible to contracting the disease.
If there is a condition, continuous high fever, easy bruising or wounds that are difficult to heal, to the decreased awareness immediately to the doctor huh ..
Thank you, hope you help.
