Nothing by itself: There is probably a very mild anemia, the white count is minimally up, and as far as I am concerned the platelets are still in the healthy range. As a lab specialist, I am always reminding people that labs mean nothing apart from the history and physical exam. I can raise my white count to this level taking a cold shower. If you feel well and there are no abnormal cells reported, be thankful. ...Read more

Blood results showed high MCHC 36.2 (normal range said 31.5 - 35.7). Other stuff ok, Hemoglobin was 15.8 (range said 11.1 - 15.9). MCH 32.6 ?
No worry: 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.

My ferritin level (15) dropped low (from 152) and tibc (471) is high, but iron is normal (71) and hgb remains slightly high (17.5). Iron deficiency?
What might these lab results indicate, please?

vitamin B12 - 257,
mcv - 100.3,
mch - 33.8,
rbc count - 4.24,
rbc size - 14.1
See a hematologist.: Ferritin is an indication of your iron stores. This level is elevated for your sex and age group. Causes can be many, most common acute hepatitis, infections, alcohol abuse. The MCV would go along with these same diagnoses although only very mildly elevated(cell size). The B12 level is also at the low end of normal which can happen from malnutrition and alcohol abuse and many other diseases. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Probably reactive: You are anemic and the numbers are suspicious for iron deficiency. If you are a healthy 34 year-old who menstruates regularly, you could easily be low in iron. The plaelet count is very high, but is likely reacting to the low iron and should come down if it is replaced. The elevated white cells (WBC) is not as easy to understand. Inflamation, infection, other? Could use more info. Good luck. ...Read more

What is the question: Please rephrase your question to get a better answer. Please discuss in detail with his hematologist. The fact that hematologist gave the iron- means that your hematologist thinks there is a component of iron deficiency. So, continue iron and f/u with your md. However, it does not fit exactly with macrocytosis. Other work up still needs to be done to see explanation for macrocytosis. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Another illness: Anemia of chronic disease does not occur as a result of common emphysema / chronic bronchitis (the usual copd). If such a person is also anemia, another cause should be sought. Anything from being an vegetarian who doesn't know how to supplement to losing blood from an undiagnosed stomach cancer can be the cause. COPD is hard enough with an undiagnosed cause of anemia.
