The normal red cell count is 4.5 -6 million/microliter. You may know that red cell counts are subject to error. Given the errors, 4.26 million is not clearly in the abnormal range to be of concern, but could be repeated at a future date if there is reason to suspect a hematologic problem.

The majority of labs are reporting hemoglobin and hematocrit as more reliable values to follow. If your hemoglobin and hematocrit are normal it is likely that you do not have anemia or low red blood cell count.
