Help with Sickle Cell Diseas

Posted , 3 users are following.

My last medical checkup revealed the following:

Hematocrits: 49.1. Normal levels are 37 - 48. Yellow: Low risk.

MCHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration): 31.8. Normal levels are 32 - 36. Yellow: Low risk.

Direct bilirubin: 0.3. Normal levels are 0 - .2. Yellow: Low risk.

Alkaline phosphatase: 204. Normal levels are 40 - 150. Red: High risk.

A doctor explained to me that the percentage of sickle-like hematocrits in my blood are destroyed in my liver, so that's why my liver is working harder than it should and is reflected on my bilirubin.

I'm currently taking b-complex vitamins (B1 - 100 mg, B6 - 5 mg, B12 - .05 mg) and folic acid (400 mcg) because I was recommended by the doctor to do so, but I want to know if that's actually the best for me.

I need help with the following:

  1. Should I take these vitamins daily?
  2. What kind of medications are dangerous with these vitamins?
  3. What kind of medications should I avoid because of my Sickle Cell Disease?
