Sudden drop in hemoglobin, no sign of blood loss-any ideas?

I have regular cbc's because of a hospitalization in March, with blood loss. My hemoglobin has been increasing steadily each week and last week was up 11.8! This week when I went it was 10.2. I wasn't feeling well this week, but have no sign of blood loss. I was nauseated, so if anything I was more dehydrated this week which would increase my count.

Does anyone have any ideas why I would drop so much in one week for no reason? I go back tomorrow and will see the Dr., but I am just trying to figure out what the cause might be.

Thanks!!

We found the cause. I was admitted into the hospital this morning with a gram negative infection in my mediport. I havehad fever on and off all week and they have been trying to find the cause. The docs said a severe infection can cause the destruction of RBC's.

Thanks for your reply.
