You do not look anemic from the posted CBC report. To help you in the future the report usually would have a normal range posted with your own report and that should help relieve the anxiety. The white cells are tending towards high but that in itself could just be due to stress but could be due to infection.

Your blood work does not suggest anemia. Best use of lab results is in a clinical context and having access to dynamics that allow comparison with previous tests in establishing trends. Your ordering doc remains your best reference in trying to place your results in proper context.

No. All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, none of your results are a cause for concern, Wish you good health!
