741 Possible Causes for Hematocrit Decreased

  • Influenza

    History The presentation of influenza virus infection varies; however, it usually includes many of the symptoms described below. Patients with influenza who have preexisting immunity or who have received vaccine may have milder symptoms. Onset of illness can occur suddenly over the course of a day, or it can[…][]

  • Tuberculosis

    James Harrison gets a free blood test from Michelle Mutchler with the San Antonio Metropolitan Health District. The test checks for a dormant tuberculosis infection that hasn't produced symptoms, but could flare into an active state and become contagious.

  • Hereditary Elliptocytosis

    Complete blood count (CBC): may show following findings Decreased hemoglobin (Hb) Decreased hematocrit (Hct) Normal mean corpuscular volume (MCV) Increased mean corpuscular[]

  • Splenic Rupture

    Laboratory studies include a basic biochemical panel and a complete blood count (CBC), which will often show a decreased hematocrit.[] The laboratory analysis revealed a decrease in her hemoglobin from 13.8 g/dl to 9 g/dl and a significant drop in her hematocrit.[] A complete blood count revealing a decreased hematocrit and imaging studies, mainly ultrasonography and computed tomography, are used for confirmation, whereas history taking[]

  • Cold Agglutinin Disease

    The MCHC and MCH values will be increased due to decreased hematocrit and RBC count. Other causes of invalid red cell indices have to be ruled out.[] Complete blood count (CBC) showed falsely decreased RBC count and hematocrit and falsely elevated MCV and MCHC.[] The RBC count will be decreased due to doublet erythrocytes being counted as a single cell, thus resulting in a falsely high MCV. Hematocrit will also be lowered.[]

  • HELLP Syndrome

    Tests/Lab Tests/Lab Values Hemolysis: Low haptoglobin concentration ( 1 g/L – 0.4 g/L) - more specific indicator [3] High LDH [3] presence of unconjugated bilirubin [3] (if Hematocrit[] Evidence of hemolysis is also reflected by a declining hematocrit or hemoglobin and decreased haptoglobin.[] The hematocrit may be decreased or normal and is typically the last of the three abnormalities to appear.[]

  • Plummer-Vinson Syndrome

    Lab test normally expose “iron-deficiency” anemia with values of hemoglobin, hematocrit, serum iron and ferritin decreased and increased total of iron binding capacity.[] Investigations Complete blood cell (CBC) counts: decreased values of hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular volume Peripheral blood smears: hypochromic microcytic anemia[] LABORATORY TESTS Laboratory examinations typically reveal iron deficiency anemia (hypochromic microcytic) with decreased values of hemoglobin, hematocrit, mean corpuscular[]

  • Primary Male Hypogonadism

    Check hematocrit; if it increases to 54%, stop therapy until hematocrit decreases into the normal range.[] The increase in adverse outcomes in terms of rising hematocrit, prostate-specific antigen (PSA), and blood sugars, as well as onset of adverse lipid pattern, fluid retention[] Side effects associated with the drug included increases in hematocrit, enlargement of the prostate or increases in prostate-specific antigen (PSA).[]

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    ; normal unless infection is present Cells are iron deficient; as hematocrit falls below 30%, hypochromic microcytic cells appear, followed by a decrease in MCV White blood[] […] saturation, and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit value.[] Definition (MSH) Anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores, low serum iron concentration, low transferrin saturation, and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit[]

  • Sideroblastic Anemia

    Blood 2017 129:2710; doi: A 3-month-old boy presented with decreased appetite, fatigue, and a nosebleed.[] The total iron-binding capacity of the cells is normal to decreased. Stainable marrow hemosiderin is increased.[] Initial workup revealed hemoglobin 2.6 g/dL (10.2-12.7), hematocrit 7.7% (30.9-37.9), mean corpuscular volume 104 fL (71.3-82.6), white blood cell count 4200/μL (240 absolute[]
