139 Possible Causes for Hematocrit Decreased, Hip Fracture

  • Cold Agglutinin Disease

    Following the hip fracture, the haemolysis increased.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[keralamedicaljournal.com] Complete blood count (CBC) showed falsely decreased RBC count and hematocrit and falsely elevated MCV and MCHC.[jbclinpharm.org]

  • Gaucher Disease

    Complications o steonecrosis of the hip 8 pathological fracture and pyogenic osteomyelitis 10 lung involvement 8 pulmonary infiltration by Gaucher cells (type 2) parenchymal[radiopaedia.org] The most debilitating, albeit most variable, symptom is bone involvement: pathological fractures after slight trauma; destruction of heads of the femur or humerus in the hip[scientificamerican.com] TBS was significantly lower in patients with avascular osteonecrosis (p 0.049) and pathological fractures (p 0.024), while it could not identify those with bone infarctions[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Primary Male Hypogonadism

    Stanley HL, Schmitt BP, Poses RM, Deiss WP: Does hypogonadism contribute to the occurrence of a minimal trauma hip fracture in elderly men?[karger.com] Check hematocrit; if it increases to 54%, stop therapy until hematocrit decreases into the normal range.[clinicaladvisor.com] If hematocrit is greater than 52%, stop therapy until it decreases to a safe level and re-evaluate the patient for hypoxia and sleep apnea.[bcmj.org]

  • Male Hypogonadism

    Other studies, however, have found that testosterone levels are not independent predictors of bone resorption or formation markers, BMD at the hip or incident fractures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Plasma LDL decreased further under long-term TU therapy, while HDL then increased.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] If hematocrit is greater than 52%, stop therapy until it decreases to a safe level and re-evaluate the patient for hypoxia and sleep apnea.[bcmj.org]

  • Pernicious Anemia

    Patients with a diagnosis of PA have an elevated risk of hip fracture. The increased hip fracture risk was persistent even years after vitamin B-12 therapy.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The differential white blood count shows a decrease in most types of cells but not lymphocytes .[labtestsonline.org] The principle aim of this study was to determine the risk of hip fracture in patients with PA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Lesch Nyhan Syndrome

    With adequate cast technique, fractures and hip subluxation/dislocation may be treated successfully.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These are associated with other characteristic events such as hip dislocation, fractures, abnormal spine curvature (scoliosis), and permanent joint fixation in flexed positions[symptoma.com] Associated orthopedic problems included hip subluxation or dislocation (nine of 18 hips), fractures (three), autoamputation, infections (three), minor scoliosis, and contractures[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Caffeine

    However, research does show some links between caffeine and hip fracture risk in older adults.[webmd.com] Compared with PL, no significant supplement differences were observed during the S trial with the exception of differential time effects seen in hematocrit (decrease in PL[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Polymyalgia Rheumatica

    […] or a hip fracture, said Dr.[eurekalert.org] A retrospective, observational, population-based study found no difference in rates of diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, or hip, vertebral or Colles fractures in PMR[medpagetoday.com] […] if researchers could prove that the cost of the drug was less than the aggregate costs of treating patients for the side effects of corticosteroids, such as a compression fracture[eurekalert.org]
