The Association Of Increased Hemoglobin Levels With Urinary Tract Infections?
Sorry, I want to ask, what is the relationship between increased HB and urinary tract infection? Why is the hb increasing too, doctor r nThank you doctor
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Hemoglobin is a part of red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to all body tissues, and brings back carbon dioxide from body tissues to the lungs to be "exchanged" with oxygen through the respiratory process. Normal hemoglobin levels vary according to age range and sex, and each laboratory has its own standards that may be slightly different from the others. However, overall normal hemoglobin in adults is in the range 11.5-16.5 g / dL.
High hemoglobin levels can occur for many reasons, including:
The habit of inhaling secondhand smoke Being at a plateau Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorders Dehydration or lack of fluids Polycythemia vera
Of course there are no urinary tract infections in between and it is not uncommon for these infections to have an effect on increasing Hb levels. The chances are that you are indeed in a state of lack of fluids when you have a urinary tract infection at the same time. Even so, an increased hb condition rarely causes problems if it only occurs temporarily or is not accompanied by other symptoms, so you don't need to worry. However, if you are in doubt or feel disturbing symptoms, please have your condition checked by a specialist in internal medicine.
Meanwhile, keep on maintaining your lifestyle to strengthen your immune system by consuming more water, taking medication as recommended by your doctor, getting enough rest, changing your underwear regularly and avoiding stress and cigarette smoke. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
