What does it mean when you have a low MCH range in your blood results. All other blood results are in normal range.
How low?: 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, it would have been useful to have the actual values of your results. If MCH is the only abnormal finding, I would not worry at all, especially if your hemoglobin level is normal. ...Read more
Dr called said blood tests were normal Rcvd lab results MCH is low & total Bilirubin @1.9. All other results are in normal range. What does this mean?
Maybe Gilbert's?: It is a familial (autosomal dominant), common (2-5% of people), unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia (blood bilirubin measures 1-5mg/dl), not due to breakdown of blood. It is associated with reduced enzyme levels of udp glycuronyl transferase, that results in jaundice when patients fast or suffer an infection. It does not shorten life or raise insurance rates, but may predispose to tylenol (acetaminophen) toxicity. ...Read more
Blood test results from last week show Lymphs at 42% and 3.6 Absolute. All other blood work normal. Any cause for concern?
Suggests low iron: Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (mch) relates to how much hemoglobin on your red blood cell (see mchc - adds concentration to mch). Forget exact acronym, but RDW measures (via flow cytometry) size of many red cells--normal to have all about one size. If becoming anemic, see wide variation which raises RDW #. Both of these can be due to low iron, but also folate (folic acid) or B12--ask your Dr for context & pl ...Read more

Ast level was 8 (normal 15-37). All other blood results are normal. Even heart enzymes. What can cause this?
Normal: Just because the normal range is listed as 15-37, an AST value of 8 is nothing to be concerned about. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat 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
My blood test results showed my MPV @ 7.4 but all other results are within normal range. Should I be concerned?
Lipase and Ferritin: These may be related. Ferritin usually reflects total iron stores in the body, but may be depressed by inflammatory conditions. Lipase is most commonly elevated with damage to the pancreas. Some further evaluation and examination, possibly with some radiographs to investigate seem wise, depending of course on the magnitude of the abnormalities and your symptoms. ...Read more
I had two fasting blood tests and results show that blood sugar levels are high. What will be my treatment?

Risk: That may mean you are at higher risk to develop an autoimmune disorders in the future. Since you are suffering from back pain already at your young age, perhaps you should see a rheumatologist to find out if there is any autoimmune disorder affecting your back unless the cause for the back pain is already known. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blood test results show lymphocytes at 46 when normal is 20-40. Everything else (white and red blood cell count normal). Should i be worried?
Lymphocytes: There is always some variation in counts , what is "normal" is what falls within the 95% confidence interval of average. So some "normals" will fall above or below the range. Would not worry if no symptoms, no atypical lymphocytes, may consider repeating in 2-3 months to get the pattern. Follow up and discuss with your doctor as well. ...Read more
I think I understand: You are asking what keeps the viscosity of blood within a narrow range. It's physical chemistry -- the blood must contain either some very abnormal red cells, a great oversupply of red cells, or abundant gigantic protein molecules (notably excess igm) before the viscosity of the blood will alter. For serum, the viscosity reflects abnormal proteins. ...Read more
