Spotlight Friday : blood

Thursday I had my 3 monthly blood check up. I was ready to scream. Obviously my blood test 3 months ago was not important enough to pass along to me to tell me that I am low on B12 and Vit D. You might think that a Dr. would notice that a person with ITP should not go too long on low numbers on B12. Vitamin B12 is important for producing new blood cells Then they forgot to put in the order for the pharmacy for me to get my Vit D and B12, I sure have nothing else to do all day than drag my kids through the hospital and wait for hours in the Pharmacy. Sorry, but my blood was boiling by the time we left, trying to keep my cool in front of the kids.

Blood is a constantly circulating fluid providing the body with nutrition, oxygen, and waste removal. Blood is mostly liquid, with numerous cells and proteins suspended in it, making blood “thicker” than pure water. The average person has about 5 liters (more than a gallon) of blood.

A liquid called plasma makes up about half of the content of blood. Plasma contains proteins that help blood to clot, transport substances through the blood, and perform other functions. Blood plasma also contains glucose and other dissolved nutrients.

About half of blood volume is composed of blood cells:

• Red blood cells, which carry oxygen to the tissues
• White blood cells, which fight infections
• Platelets, smaller cells that help blood to clot

Blood is conducted through blood vessels (arteries and veins). Blood is prevented from clotting in the blood vessels by their smoothness, and the finely tuned balance of clotting factors.  (http://www.webmd.com/heart/anatomy-picture-of-blood)
