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
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?
Anemia: You have anemia. What is mcv. Most likely anemia is from blood loss and indicates iron deficiency. Can get reticulocyte count checked. Most common cause in you may be heavy menstrual flow.

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. Having said that, none of your results are a cause for concern. Do follow your doctor's advice for follow-up care. Next time you get the test done, drink a couple of glasses of water in the morning before the test. ...Read more

My father in law had his prostate removed a little over 1yr. Blood test: hemoglobin 9.8 iron 27 hct 31 MCV 71 RBC 4.4 mchc 31 MCH 22 RDW 19.6. Help?
Wbc 13.2 RBC 4.73 hemoglobin 10.2 hematocrit 33.8 mvc 72 MCH 21.6 mchc 30.2 RDW 16.2 platelets 816, 000.Thoughts?Should i be worried with the platelets
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

My blood test results:
total bilirubin: 1.41 h
ast: 40 h
alt: 100 h
total alk phosphatase: 43 l
serum total protein: 7.1
e.R. Said hepatitis?
Let's try this...: I have only a little bit of the story you've shared. Perhaps it's time to see whether the ast and alt get back to normal after two weeks off alcohol and any not-totally-necessary meds you may be taking. If so, this is the start of a healthier life after alcohol. If not, the workup for virus infections, iron overload, wilson's, autoimmunity & need for exercise can begin. Good luck. ...Read more
Wbc 4.24, RBC 3.77, hb 11.0, hct 32.5, MCV 90, MCH 29, mchc 32.5, RDW 14.4, PLT 255, mpv 10.6. Am i anemic? Other bloodwork normal except low alk phos
Very mild anemia: It will depend on the normal range of hb used at your laboratory where you have the test done. At my lab- the normal range used is between 12-15, so hb of 11 is only mildly anemic. It is nothing to worry much about however. In young woman like yourself- with your monthly period, you lose some iron in every cycle. This can cause mild anemia. Check your iron and take multi vitamin. D/w your md. ...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.

My dad 70 yrs has macrocytic anemia. Hemoglobin 9.5, hematocrit 28. Hematologist gave maltofer pill a day. In a month hemoglobin 10 hematocrit 30?
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
Hypothyroidism and high prolactin latest results ft4 <5.2 (9.0-19) ft3 3.00 (2.6-6) TSH 0.03 (0.1-3.5) rt3 <40 (140-540) prolactin 2356 (<500)?
See a specialist.: Your profoundly elevated prolactin level needs to be evaluated, and your thyroid hormone levels are dangerously low. It appears there may be another problem with your pituitary gland, as it is not making TSH appropriately for the low free T4 and low normal free T3 (liothyronine) levels. I would strongly recommend you see an endocrinologist right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an acute asthma attack, administered oxygen, morphine, and 3 other meds, enlarged heart. Should i take oxygen?
No: O2 should be prescribed by a pulmonary physician after finding that your o2 levels are low. Low o2 mean severe pulmonary or heart disease. Reason should be investigated. You need to stop smoking asap. It is not helping and is worsening your condition. I suspect you may have a combination of chronic lung disease/ reactive airway/ heart condition. Consult an internist/lung specialist soon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My speram count is
pH - 7.7 , volume - 1.5 ml, Speram concentration - 77 mil/ml, Progressive - 30, Non progressive - 40
, Non motile - 30. Plz check?
Your best option: is to have the results interpreted by your ordering Doctor. The pH and count/concentration seem normal, but the volume seems low and I suspect your motility is low (should be >50% show normal forward movement after 1 hour). Again, your treating physician is best able to discuss the significance of this with you. Good wishes:) ...Read more
