Pancytopenia: You didn't mention why you are on remicade (infliximab). Your white blood count, red blood count, and platelet counts are all low and your ESR is very high. You need to see your doctor. You may need other labs, or you may need to see a hematologist.

Anemia: Anemia in setting of elevated citrate and long term use of remicaide should be worked up by a hematologist. We will look at all possible causes of anemia and order necessary tests as indicated.
