Frequently Asked Questions
What happens when hemoglobin is low?
What do I do when I have a low number of platelets?
The substance that helps the transport of oxygen in the body is hemoglobin, the substance that gives red blood cells color. Low levels of hemoglobin lead to anemia, which causes symptoms such as breathing difficulties and fatigue.
What is the most common test for hematology?
The cells that are useful for blood clotting are platelets. The standard count varies between 1.5 and 4.0 lakh cells/mm3. There is an increased tendency for bleeding in patients with low platelet counts in the form of gum bleeding, excess bleeding after minor trauma or bleeding anywhere in the body. We should find the cause of the low number of platelets.
Is it possible to cure a blood disease?
The complete blood count, or CBC, is one of the most common hematology tests. During a regular examination, this test is frequently performed and can diagnose anemia, clotting problems, blood cancers, disorders of the immune system and infections.
Symptoms of a blood disorder depend on the portion of the blood affected. Fatigue, fever, infections, and irregular bleeding are some typical symptoms. Treatment for blood disorders can sometimes cure or at least control the disease to avoid complications, although there is a poor prognosis for certain disorders.
