Blood Panel Results.


In two weeks I have gone through 3 Blood Panels, Ct Scan, Endoscopy, Colonoscopy and have a pelvic Ultrasound scheduled this week. Biopsy from the Endoscopy came back normal. CT Scan shows inflamed stomach. Colonoscopy came back normal.

So where am I losing this amount of blood? I went from an 9 out of 15 to an 8 out of 15 and this last blood panel reported a 5 out of 15...with an ALERT message. What am I missing? What should I do next?

HEMOGLOBIN: 10
URIC ACID: 1.8
CHLORIDE: 110
RDW: 17
PLATELETS: 425
IRON SATURATION: 5% ALERT


I don't understand what is happening or where this stems from. I am 39, healthy, active and very fit. In the last two months I have noticed a weird fatigue, tingly fingers, a constant chill, heavy abdominal cramps, blurry vision, headaches, dizzy spells and sometimes at a loss for words.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
I would suggest you RBC labelled radionucleide scan followed by angiography to sort out the source of bleeding.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
