My mother age is 65 yrs.Her hb count is 6.1. I transfused one unit of blood before 15 days, but again hb count is 6.1.
Pls suggest reason&remedy...?
Determine the cause: Hemoglobin of 6.1 is very very low. Perhaps she is bleeding from GI tract, vaginally, etc. The cause had to be determined immediately. She needs another unit or two of PRBC transfused to bring hb up. Make sure she is being evaluated. ...Read more
My mother age is 65 yrs.Her hb count is 6.1. I transfused one unit of blood before 15 days, but again hb count is 6.1. Pls suggest reason&remedy...?
Depends: Anemia is caused by one of two things: either impaired production, which is a bone marrow problem, or increased loss through either bleed or hemolysis. Since her HGB is so low and without appropriate response to transfusion, her anemia should have at least an initial workup as an inpatient. ...Read more
Would a splenic infarct still be affecting a CBC after 7 months? Rbc hemoglobin hematocrit absolute immat. Granulocytes platelets all still elevated.
More info needed: A splenic infarct, by itself, shouldn't have all those affects. If your spleen is hyperactive you can have low counts, and if it is big and making extra cells (ie: extracellular hematopoesis) which is found in certain hematologic conditions, you may have elevated cells. What is reaon for splenic infarct? ...Read more
Reticulocyte count is .85% for a 70 years old man with macrocytic anemia. Hb is 9 and MCV is 105. Is the reticulocyte count normal?
Probably not: In patients without anemia, a normal retic count is 1%. As anemia develops, if the marrow can respond, the retic count should rise, meaning more red blood cells are being made. Whatever is causing your anemia (with an elevated MCV), such as B12 deficiency or other causes, is also inhibiting your bone marrow from making new cells and thus your retic count is inappropriately low. ...Read more
Blood reports of 17mon boy Hemoglobin 9.9 Hematocrit 31. RDW 16.8, Platelet Count 597. Normal RETICULOCYTE COUNT, Normal BILIRUBIN. What could it be?
Blood counts: While as you know those blood counts are not within normal ranges, however all may be related to your incomplete miscarriage. You should go to follow up with your doctor and have some evaluation- including iron level. If your iron is low- you should take some supplement. There are other things also to exclude especially if those abnormalities have been there even before your miscarriage. ...Read more

I'm 18 wks pregnant with an absolute lymphocyte count <600. Is this normal for pregnancy? Will ALC continue dropping through 28th week?
That is low: The absolute lymphocyte count should range 700-4600 nonpregnant, 1100-3600 1st trimester, 900-3900 2nd trimester, and 1000-3600 3rd trimester. Because your level is low, you should first repeat it. If still present, your physician, or a hematologist, can elect to look for possible causes such as infection, autoimmune disorders like lupus, medications, etc. Hope that helps. ...Read more
What does Platelet anisocytosis mean on blood smear? Platelet count is 454K. (10 days ago it was 482K)
Both are normal.: Most labs use as a normal range for platelets to be 150, 000 to 450, 000. The slight increase you wrote of are not concerning. Anisocytosis refers to change in size---not all the same size platelets. Large platelets can be associated with many things, including bone marrow replacement with younger platelets. Smaller platelets can be associated with different genetic conditions or may be normal. ...Read more
Baby has iron deficiency anemia and has fever for 3 days now. Lab results show normal platelet count, low hemoglobin, high wbc. Is this an emergency?
Doesn't sound like : It, if your child truly is 1yo. A few days of fever, due to a viral illness for example, is not uncommon. I'd give you a different answer for a 2-3mo child. If your child is staying well hydrated despite the insensible losses, he will probably be fine. If you're uncertain, go see your pediatrician. The blood counts by themselves are not that concerning, provided anemia is being treated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What could be causing high platelet count of 900, anaemia after iron infusion 4 weeks ago and two blood transfusions two weeks ago. ?
Bone marrow problem: Two possibilities: 1. You have iron-deficiency (why? Are you having GI bleeding? Gastric bypass? ) and your platelets are high as an inflammatory response, or 2. You have essential thrombocytosis or another bone marrow problem. Given your age, my vote is for #1. See a hematologist for more answers! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
