Doctor insights on:
For 58+ F, Hb 10.8, RBC 3.66, PCV 34, MCV 94, MCHC 31, WBC 5.4, Pt 1.8, Iron 57, TIBC 255, TSI 22, RC 1.2, Ferritin 83 indicate which type of anemia ?
Mild anemia: Assuming you've had no recent bleeding episodes, these findings could be seen in mild/early anemia of chronic disease. Hgb and Hct are only boarder line low, and iron panel appears within the reference range. Even something as simple as a particularly heavy period could cause mild anemia of this type, though. If you have a chronic medical illness, it could cause this type of anemia. ...Read more

MCH 29.3 MCH 31.7 RDW 13.3 RDWSD 45.0?
Need medical examina: You need to see a doctor for medical check up to find the cause of Hives. It may be an allergic reaction to a medication or any chemicals in your environment. Your WBC count is also high, but we need to know the differential count, a breakdown of WBC into its component cells. You may need to see an allergist if the hives do not go away in a few days. Specialized tests(complement levels) may help ...Read more
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

In ICU Jan 2016 - toxic granulation, NRBC .3, atyp lymphs 6%. No diagnosis. May 2017 admitted w/ naus/vom. WBC 3.4, RBC 3.6, hgb 8. Any link?
Not relevant: The link if any with your 2016 admission may not be relevant. You are anemic and that needs to be investigated, along with your other symptoms. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor. Wish you good health! ...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 11.3 high, RBC 5.03 High, MCV 81.1 Low, MCH 26.3 Low, NE% 85.1 High, LY% 9.5 low, Neut# 9.6 High, INR 1.080, PTT 37.5 High, Slight Hemolysis noted?
Any symptoms?: 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 the results are a cause for concern. Why were the tests done? Generally it is better to treat the patient rather than laboratory numbers. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Too aggressive: With the numbers you're presenting I'm not sure who put the idea of doing IV iron into your thought process. Hb-13 for age 74 isn't far off of expected norms for age. If you want to do SOMETHING check thyroids, serum zinc, serum magnesium, & serum Vitamin D. Eat more spinach, beans, dried fruit, seafood, & poultry.

Your body maybe attacking your thyroid gland. This is not an emergency please do not panic and talk to your doctor. ...Read more
