Variation in Blood Values and Haemoglobin Levels in Day Scholars and ‘Boarders
Keywords:Haemoglobin, erythrocyte, investigation
Haemoglobin levels were estimated in 260 student (girls & boys) grouped equally as Day Scholars and Boarders studying in various departments of Sindh University Jamshoro. Highly significant differences in haemoglobin levels were observed between day-scholars and boarders both (girls & boys). Blood investigation were carried out to check out percentage of haemoglobin and also blood values. Anaemia was suspected in 28 cases in Day Scholars, despite the red cell count and erythrocyte indices (MCV, MCH and MCHC) were within the normal limits. Sixteen cases of anaemia were detected in the boarders and red cell counts are near lower limit of normality. The blood smear showed slightly microcytic hypochromic picture further confirmed by erythrocyte indices. The present study was undertaken to estimate haemoglobin levels and to calculate erythrocytes in Day Scholar and Boarder students in order to evaluate our own standards and also to detect the presence of anaemia amongst the students. Further study is proposed to investigate in the stressful condition persists among group of same age and also further studies should be undertaken among the students in order to detect and remove the cause of anaemia.
