your father has a diabetic nephropathy that too advanced
kidney functions of ur father are below 25%,75 have been lost
Erythopioten is not secreated by kidneys
UR father needs erythopioten with iron therapy
and probably blood transfusion
No diet can increase the HB of UR father

juice of pomegranate, munaka soaked over night , dates soaked overnight, anjir soaked over night, beet root, any of these can be had if sugar is controlled or their dose can be adjusted, otherwise punarnava mandur is the drug of choice which will help in keeping createnine under control and also increase Hb.

My baby is 1 month old and his hemoglobin is 9.3. I lost a lot of blood when I had him which made him lose blood and they think that is why he is anemic. It was 10.4 when I had him and after one week went up to 11.3 and then started decreasing to 9.8, 9.6, and is now 9.3. I m giving iron drops everyday and his formula has iron in it. What do you think I should do next or what do you think the cause is?

My father recently had blood work and his hemoglobin count was 10.2. His physician has scheduled a colonoscopy for next month. Why would he automatically schedule the colonoscopy? He had open heart surgery in 2001 -- could some of his medication cause his level to be low? Thank you.
