251 Possible Causes for Elevated Sedimentation Rate, Normocytic Normochromic Anemia, Weakness

  • Chronic Kidney Insufficiency

    Hyperphosphatemia and hyperparathyroidism are common findings, whereas a complete blood count (CBC) reveals anemia with normochromic and normocytic characteristics, thus excluding[symptoma.com] The waste buildup can make you sick and you may have these symptoms: swelling of the ankles, face or belly, vomiting, loss of appetite, fatigue, weakness, confusion and headaches[heart.org] Anemia Normochromic normocytic anemia principally develops from decreased renal synthesis of erythropoietin, the hormone responsible for bone marrow stimulation for red blood[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Anemia of Infection

    […] color (normocytic, normochromic) but as the anemia progresses, the RBCs become smaller ( microcytic ) and paler ( hypochromic ) than normal.[labtestsonline.org] When anemia becomes severe, you have fewer blood cells to carry oxygen to your body’s cells and tissues so you may feel weak, fatigued, experience dizziness, shortness of[cancersupportcommunity.org] The affected animal is apt to have a shaggy coat, to be thin, weak, and sluggish, and to have swollen legs. An asymptomatic animal may carry the virus.[britannica.com]
