Low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts?

Low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts?

Means nothing alone: In isolation from the patient story, lab tests mean nothing. This is especially true since we have no actual numbers. The low MCV and high rbc would make any physician think of a thalassemia, but it would be criminal to speculate further without knowing more about the person. If this is a you or a family member, you have a right and a duty to request your doctor's thoughts, or get consultation. ...Read more

What does a high RDW count 15.9, high WBC count 11.3, high neutrophil count 73.0, low lymphocyte count 20.3 mean or possibly indicate?

What does a high RDW count 15.9, high WBC count 11.3, high neutrophil count 73.0, low lymphocyte count 20.3 mean or possibly indicate?

Nothing by itself: I've had my RDW that high just from frequent blood donations. Your absolute neutrophil count is probably high -- did you have a recent infection? A recent cold shower? As a lab specialist, i'm always reminding folks that the numbers by themselves mean nothing except in the context of the history and physical exam. If you feel well and the white cells aren't described as abnormal, don't worry. ...Read more

I have an elevated sedimentation rate, elevated white blood cell count, elevated absolute neutrophils, elevated absolute lymphocytes, & low iron level?

What could normal cbc, normal wbc, normal rbc, low hbg, and low hct indicate besides anemia?

Anemia: Low hemoglobin and hematocrit indicate anemia. The normal rbc count suggests a type of thalassemia. In thalassemia, the MCV (size of cells) is low-the cells are small. I suggest you discuss the results with your doctor, or that you see a hematologist. ...Read more

What might cause elevated absolute neutrophils but normal neutrophil percentage?

What might cause elevated absolute neutrophils but normal neutrophil percentage?

TheTruthOnAbsolute : Percentages are relative numbers. You could have one billion neutrophils (elevated) but only 10% of total White Cells (low, %, based on normal ranges), but 10% of one billion is sky high. We are always looking at relative numbers and absolute numbers. Relative numbers like % can be manipulated in various ways, good and bad, but absolute numbers are the nitty-gritty. ...Read more

Thalassemia?: Low MCV (small sized) red cells with increased number of rbcs is most commonly seen with thalassemia, an inherited hemoglobin abnormality, but it is not associated with low neutrophils. Not all low neutrophil counts are significant, as normal varies with ethnic background. Infections can cause temporary low neutrophils. See a hematologist to sort this out. ...Read more
