hematocrit is low

    • May 14, 2021 at 5:08 am

      Hi I have a new thing happening my hematocrit levels are 50 after IVIG but in 4 days they have dropped to 32 which is low. I am asking if anyone else is/has experienced this I am getting tired and grumpy when this drop occurs, my specialist and doctor are unsure at this point in time.

      I’m not exactly sure what the low hematocrit levels indicate, myself I become anemic when I receive my infusion. I have to remember to take iron vitamins before and during my infusion treatments.

        Hi Ron thanks for replying,hematocrit are the amount of red blood cells. My ferritin levels are nearly double the normal range which isn’t good but my iron level is normal.

      This sounds similar to my bout with low RBC and anemia. Maybe the following forum post contains some helpful insight into what could be going on:

        Thanks Jim, yes seems similar to your experience. Will have to talk more about this to my doctor. How have you been going?
