52 Possible Causes for Dyspnea, Erythrocytes Decreased, Red Blood Cell Distribution Width Increased

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    […] high red blood cell distribution width, reflecting an increased variability in the size of red blood cells.A low mean corpuscular volume also appears during the course of[en.wikipedia.org] Iron-deficient erythropoiesis: Iron stores in marrow are absent, iron and % saturation are beginning to decrease below reference intervals and iron-deficient erythrocytes[eclinpath.com] Patients may complain of: Fatigue Pallor Weakness Headache Palpitations Dizziness Dyspnea Irritability Poor concentration, impaired development Hair loss Impaired temperature[symptoma.com]

  • Sickle Cell Disease

    The directed genetic abnormalities of human erythrocytes have found to decrease the susceptibility towards malaria parasites and the heterozygotes of abnormalities probably[doi.org] He presented with progressive severe dyspnea on exertion and lower extremity edema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The presence of HbA or hemoglobin F (HbF) within sickle erythrocytes decreases sickling and decelerates the polymerization process. 4, 5 Hydroxyurea (HU) is a chemotherapeutic[doi.org]

  • Folate-Deficiency Anemia

    Serum folate reflects folate status unless intake has recently increased or decreased.[merckmanuals.com] Folate-deficiency anemia causes symptoms that are common for all types of anemia, like fatigue, irritability, headaches, diminished concentration ability, dyspnea, and palpitations[symptoma.com] Additional common symptoms include aches and pains, muscle weakness, and difficulty breathing (dyspnea).[rarediseases.org]

  • Anemia

    […] variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width, RDW) A blood smear may reveal RBCs that are smaller and paler than normal as well as RBCs that vary in size (anisocytosis[labtestsonline.org] Throughout fetal life, erythrocytes decrease in size and increase in number: hematocrit increases from 30% to 40% during the second trimester to 50% to 63% at term.[pedsinreview.aappublications.org] Acute anemia presents with symptoms owing to acute blood loss; chronic anemia may present with worsening fatigue, dyspnea, lightheadedness, or chest pain.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Megaloblastic Anemia

    […] variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width, RDW) A blood smear may reveal RBCs that are smaller and paler than normal as well as RBCs that vary in size (anisocytosis[labtestsonline.org] Prior studies have demonstrated the induction of apoptosis in these abnormal under-developed erythrocytes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] She developed dyspnea and severe subcutaneous bleeding of the right lower extremity due to knee contusions. Hemodialysis was started to treat her uremic state.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Acute Myelocytic Leukemia

    The only significant difference in blood-cell indexes was an increase in red-cell distribution width (13.8% vs. 13.4% in normocytic subjects, P 0.002 by Wilcoxon rank-sum[doi.org] […] platelet count, and anemia due to decreased erythrocyte count.[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com] Anemia manifests in the form of pallor, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, dyspnea on exertion, and possibly chest pain.[symptoma.com]

  • Autoimmune Hemolytic Anemia

    […] variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width, RDW) A blood smear may reveal RBCs that are smaller and paler than normal as well as RBCs that vary in size (anisocytosis[labtestsonline.org] Mechanisms of actions include suppression of autoantibody production, reduction in autoantibody affinity, and decreased destruction of erythrocytes by splenic macrophages,[doi.org] The patient suddenly developed hematuria and dyspnea on exertion while receiving adalimumab treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thalassemia

    blood cell distribution width High Normal; occasionally high Normal Ferritin Low Normal Normal Mentzer index for children (MCV/red blood cell count) 13 13 13 Hb electrophoresis[aafp.org] In turn, this results in a decreased hemoglobinization of the erythroblasts. In the blood count, this condition can be observed as hypochromasia of the erythrocytes.[lecturio.com] He presented with chest discomfort and progressive dyspnea. Early echocardiogram showed mild pericardial effusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Aplastic Anemia

    […] variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width, RDW) A blood smear may reveal RBCs that are smaller and paler than normal as well as RBCs that vary in size (anisocytosis[labtestsonline.org] Other common symptoms of aplastic anemia are chest pain, pale skin, excessively cold extremities, headaches, dyspnea and dizziness shortly after standing.[symptoma.com] Aplastic anemia may present with the following signs and symptoms: Fatigue Dyspnea on exertion Easy bruising and bleeding (for example, epistaxis, gum bleeding, heavy menses[cancertherapyadvisor.com]

  • Cooley's Anemia

    blood cell distribution width High Normal; occasionally high Normal Ferritin Low Normal Normal Mentzer index for children (MCV/red blood cell count) 13 13 13 Hb electrophoresis[aafp.org] […] variation in the size of RBCs (red cell distribution width, RDW) A blood smear may reveal RBCs that are smaller and paler than normal as well as RBCs that vary in size (anisocytosis[labtestsonline.org] Normal (may have reduced HbA2) Increased HbA2, reduced HbA, and probably increased HbF Adults: normal Newborns: may have HbH or Hb Bart's Table 3.[aafp.org]
