I am a post kidney transplant patient, had a pedia en block in 6/2008 at UCSF. I haven't had my labs drawn for 8 months. I went yesterday since I've been feeling really exhausted, weak, confused and short of breath. My hemaglobin is 8 and hematocrit 24, just got the lab results. Should I be concerned and call my Nephrologist?
Hi, Your hemoglobin level is very low and that may contribute to severe weakness and fatigue. You can consult your nephrologist and you may require blood transfusions also. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
