Rh blood stands for

Common Questions and Answers about Rh blood stands for


Avatar f tn I'm not sure what it stands for. But it's when the parents have different blood types.. Like + and - sometimes the mothers body will attack the baby thinking its a foreign parasite in the body. I had to get the shot for it at 13 weeks due to bleeding.
Avatar f tn I am pregnant and rh negative. I have been bleeding for 5 days. I had blood work and also a vaginal ultrasound and both confirmed my pregnancy however they said that they could not confirm if the egg was still viable and told me to come back in one week and to verify growth. But what happens if I miscarried yesteraday and do not get the RhoGAM shot? Arent I supposed to get it within 72 hours of the miscarriage? Please help me.
Avatar m tn do you mean the Rh factor, which typically expresses itself as Rh+ or Rh-? I forget exactly what the Rh stands for, but it is something else found on the blood. (Most cells in a human body have thousands of different signals and signs to identify them.) For instance I would say that I am A+, my husband is O+, and my ex flatmate AB-. That positive or negative sign is actually another genetic trait independent of the ABO and is the second way that blood is usually classified.
Avatar n tn On one occasion I asked Dr. DeAdamo (Eat right for your blood type) and was told to take bioflavonoids for it. I am beginning to take the supplement now, since the vessel popping has become too annoying to ignore.
Avatar n tn The dots are red because they contain blood that has leaked from tiny blood vessels (capillaries) into the skin. Petechiae may be an indication of a serious underlying problem that requires medical evaluation. A common cause of petechiae is a low platelet count (thrombocytopenia). Platelets are blood cells that play an important role in blood clotting.
Avatar n tn Blood group type - O, Rhesus positive (rh +). Meaning your blood group is O+. Congratulations, your blood group type is a universal donor blood type. You can donate your blood to practically everyone else except for those who are Rhesus negative (rh -) O rh+ is in no way about your hiv status. Now, your have had unprotected intercourse in march, so your were at risk. Follow canermy's advice and you can test now to know for sure. All the best and take care ok?
1815939 tn?1377995399 Early comments from those born between 1945 and 1965 reveal some skepticism about the call for a one-time blood test for everyone to detect the liver-wrecking virus, recommended last week by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “I’d be much more concerned if I had some risk factors,” groused one boomer on an msnbc.com website, while another asked government health officials to explain “how a whole generation could be infected?
Avatar n tn You are all giving me excellent pro reasons to wait for biopsy. I am very raw here with this diagnosis of Hep C. I wake up at all hours of the night thinking about it and every waking hour is consumed with it. I want it OUT of my body. However, when I finally get myself grounded I do hope that I think more clearly. (and you all have helped here since I found out about having Hep C) I cannot rope in the anger.
Avatar f tn I'm pretty new to this so I don't know what TTC stands for, but I did experience some discharge for 8 days but it was mostly bright red and pink. I went to the doc after I had two positive hpt's but had started bleeding it wasn't heavy but it started on a saturday I went to the doc on monday and he did a hcg quant and it was only over 100. He told me I was having a chemical pregnancy which is the egg met the sperm just long enough to give me a positive test.
Avatar f tn The technology of genetic engineering has allowed the manufacture of G-CSF (known as recombinant human or rh, GM-CSF) for the treatment of people with low white blood cell counts. This includes some people who have had chemotherapy for cancer where it can speed up the recovery of the white cell count after treatment. This can help reduce the risk of infections and prevent delays in treatment, or even allow for higher doses of treatment to be given.
Avatar n tn However, nothing stands out particularly for something going on in the brain (except for perhaps the eye problem if it was misdiagnosed). This is NOT to say that you definitely don't have MS and that lesions in the brain can't produce these symptoms, just that migrating pain is difficult to localize to the brain OR the peripheral nervous system.The MRI and rheumatologist should be a good start. Consider a neurological exam also.
209591 tn?1267418314 You have fibromyalgia, did you Rhuemy do the full blood work (did you have positive for RH factor or positive for ANA). The disc degeneration issues could be from arthritic conditions or did you play major sports etc.... Here's the question, when you were on both anit-depressents it was obviously helping since the headaches got a lot worse after you stopped taking them. Was it not helping alot?
Avatar n tn Nanci.....GMS is...hell, I don't know what it stands for but if you work for GM or retired from there you get it and basically you get the vehicle for $100 over the invoice price. With all the rebates on everything right now it probably wouldn't help out much as they don't give you GMS & the rebates!!!!!! My thanks to everyone that offered their opinion on vehicles... Gonza......we are actually leaning toward the Tahoe with the 3rd row seat....that will be more than enough room.
Avatar f tn Each result has to be compared with the reference range for that blood draw so ranges need to be posted with results. If the ranges have remained the same, your FT4 and FT3 have remained quite low, but have come up with the October labs... when were you switched to the 50 mcg?
Avatar n tn I have had HepC since 1982 (I was given blood after birth of my son). I didn't find out til 1990 when I went to give blood for the first time. I really didn't begin aching til after my total hysterectomy in 2005. Now, I ache from my fingers to my toes. I have a deep pain mostly in my left upper leg. My neck and shoulders crunch and ache. I also noticed my feet have gotten redden and appear swollen. My blood levels have elevated since 2 years ago.
Avatar n tn At birth, I was severely jaundiced and my bilirubin level was off the chart due to my mother's Rh- blood factor, and in the eleventh hour, I barely escaped a total blood transfusion. Now I can't help thinking my poor liver didn't have a fighting chance from the get-go. Yes, I worry about my spouse--and God forbid, an HCV dx coming out of the blue years down the road.
868575 tn?1250191618 Then when I came back the next week, I seen a different physician, and she was fairly concerned, which sort of blew my mind after being thought of as a hypochondriac for so long. She said your D-dimer is through the roof! So I had ultrasound for deep vein thrombosis, and an ECG, and a heart echo, all normal. Also during this time my white count was high, around 16,000 then it did finally drop a month later, but I haven't had follow ups to see if it has risen again.
Avatar f tn He was examined by a urologist first and then our RE had him do a blood test to see if he was a carrier for Cystic Fibrosis, since he suspected that there were in fact sperm in there, but that perhaps he was missing part of his vas deferens which was blocking the sperm from ejaculating (apparently, men who are carriers for CF often have this condition). It turned out that he was right...my husband was in fact a carrier.
683664 tn?1330969924 Yes, sharing a needle while injecting illegal drugs is the biggest risk factor for becoming infected with this blood-borne virus. But before 1992, when widespread testing of the blood supply began, hepatitis C commonly was spread through blood transfusions. Plus, a one-time experiment with drugs way back in high school or college could have been enough. "Asking someone about a risk that happened 20 to 30 years ago is a lot to ask," says Ward. Hence the quest for a new strategy.
867582 tn?1311630997 Post away as much as you want, it is normal to have a lot of questions when on a new "lead" for a diagnosis after an ordeal such as yours, and with Lyme & Co. it is particularly difficult in that you really do need to make the conscious decision to go against the grain of mainstream medicine to pursue diagnosis and treatment for chronic Lyme and other tick-borne infection.
Avatar n tn Thanks for your responses to my post. I have scheduled to have another blood test done. I still as of yet haven't started my period. No sign of it coming either. I do remember though that back in 2001, I realized I hadn't seen a period for almost that whole month and my breast had gotten so sore, I could hardly get out of bed, so I immediately went to buy a H.P.T, and it turned positive before I could pull it out of my urine stream almost.
Avatar n tn Good Morning, Lisabet M.D. (no-one has to know it stands for mangy dog). Thanks for your thoughts for my friend! He has improved since my Saturday visit; not requiring dialysis Sunday or yesterday, as his kidneys and liver have STARTED to function again. WHEW!! I definately didn't post his story as a scare tactic(we have enough things to stress about don't we), more just the proverbial reality check. As far as your own recovery, you are in it.
1244100 tn?1385909128 -) they did do more blood wook yesterday don't know what for but I'll have the results on monday afternoon ! Well any ways I did get my Lupron and needles !

Avatar n tn The alkaline blood system has a blood tested pH of 7.2 or higher for the most energy possible. Drinking 55 oz of water before one brushes one's teeth, and then no food or beverages for one hour, will begin to heal over 30 diseases. A diet of fresh raw fruits and vegetables will also provide that needed diet of 80% alkaline raw foods needed to allow the body to heal from the inside out. Essential oils is another form to encourage the body to self heal.
Avatar m tn ie HCV antibody negative patients, presumably ones with a much lower anount of virus than ordinary SVRs since the amount of virus was insufficient to even trigger antibody production) The second reason is the study only considered PBMCs. This focus may be reasonable given that the authors work for a blood lab, howver the Carreno, Pham, Radkowski findings suggest liver cells are the most likely source of post-SVR replication as they were before tx. The third reason is a technical one.
280891 tn?1261016650 The standard methods for determining the concentration of mercury compounds in the body involve urine, blood, fecal and hair samples with a challenge test using a small portion of chelator to push out mercury. The problem with these methods is that they only show a recent history of mercury exposure, whereas mercury is a cumulative toxin. Since these tests cannot account for past exposures, they are only valid indicators of recent, acute exposure.
Avatar n tn he can tell 2 days away if the weather is going to dramatically change - and here in texas that happens a lot. trust me, its awful for him. once the weather settles down, he's back to normal. only the barometric change does anything to him. you're not alone in this, and nothing - not any medication on the market, rx or otherwise, puts a dent in his reaction.
1294995 tn?1330666336 Rain- wow that is crazy that you got BFN on both HPT, wowwww~ well that being the case I think they should definatly be doing blood tests for you.
