Have you checked her blood pressure now?
no not at home
What was her blood pressure in the ER?
looking thru paper work to find it
Alright. The low IHCT needs evaluation as it could have quite a few possibilities.
they dont have basic vital sihns in the paper work
At the moment, you can give her gatorade to drink and get over the dizziness.
If she is sleeping and rested, she may feel better after waking up. The dizziness may come down.
ok i gave her oj. but her heart still pounded a lot she said she is so weak i thought for how low it was they would give her iron in hospital
how long doea this take to start getting better with just oral iron and leafy greens
Well this will depend on what her ion and hemoglobin levels are in the lab work.
If the levels are too low, she will needs intravenous iron infusion every other day for a couple of days.
its happening a couple of times a day I didn't know before camp I thought she had just not eaten . We have been really busy on trip to ny moving high acheiving student in honors classes really busy last month of school . I am afraid we missed this and n
Its alright, you should take her to an MD internal medicine tomorow.
what if I cannt get in should she go to Er . and at what levels do they give Iv iron , or Im ( i don't even know if they give it im
Normal serum iron in women is : 50 to 170 μg/dL
It is not given IM, only IV.
Yes, if you cannot meet an MD tomorrow, take her to ER.
her HCT was 27 normal 37-47 that why I want to know if she should be give iron right away IV or IM
This is not the iron level, it is the hematocrit level.
You will have to check her hemoglobin level also.
Thats what is so low is iron not the problem
It can be iron or low blood red blood cells.
Why would you have LOw RBC's
Low RBC can be due to anemia.
This may or may not be assciated with low iron.
So, she needs a complete blood count / CBC test.
Shes 17 yr old with heavy menses and , Glutin allerys and dairy allergies so her diet is probably lacking
Heavy menses is a common cause for anemia.
Please take her to ER tomorrow and get all the CBC, reticulocyte count, platelet count and peripheral blood smear tests done.
she had NA.K, BUn Cr. Ca. Cl TCo2
But she needs the tests that I have just mentioned because she has low IHCT.
She Had a Na,K, Cl, TCO2, Glucose, BUN, CR, iCa, HCT< done with a EKG, Urine testing
SHe has a cbc done I think
Please take her to ER tomorrow and get reticulocyte count, platelet count and peripheral blood smear tests done as well because she has low IHCT..
she had a Cbc done I think she had An iStat 10 done
But as she is symptomatic, she needs the tests that I have mentioned.

Yes, very likely.
