Can A High Uric Acid Count Mean You Have Lupus
What does a high MCH and a high MCHC mean on a blood test. My Folic Acid was also high. Thank you! ?
Need the numbers: 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 helpful to have the actual numbers. High MCH and MCHC in themselves are not a cause for concern. High folic acid is okay too. ...Read more

What does it mean if you are prone to getting kidney stones and have regularly elevated neutrophil counts and elevated c reactive protein?
Blood test shows markers for lupus and rheumatoid arthritis,cbc showed high white blood count. What does this mean? Do I have the auto immune issues
I understand that monoclonal B cell lymphocytosis can cause an elevated WBC. Could it cause a high or very high CRP as well?
No: As a lab specialist I do not recommend even ordering a CRP except as part of a focused rheumatology workup. If you feel well, usually you never find the cause of the elevation anyway. Some people just run it high. If you have horrible ulcerative atherosclerosis, which is one cause, your doctor would know already. Otherwise, it really doesn't give useful information if you feel well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Nothing: Lab values without clinical information mean nothing whatever. Low RDW never means anything. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. If you feel well, forget the monos, and if the eos are below 2000, get retested next year. Now, if you are SICK ... these are great keys to help find out the cause. But don't treat numbers. Best wishes ...Read more
I have a low white cell count (lymphocytes low at 35%) a borderline CRP and high plasma viscosity of 1.84. What could be causing this?
Probably nothing: Percentages mean nothing on the white count. If your absolute neutrophil and absolute lymphcyte counts are anywhere near reference range, stop worrying. The ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside on either end, and the values fluctuate chaotically from hour to hour. I'd ignore the other values if you feel reasonably well, and look at history & physical if seeking illness. ...Read more

What does it mean if you have a high monocyte %, combined with a low platelet count and low neutrophil count?
What is high serum blood protein associated with? This Lead to a ANA which detected sjrogrens. I am not sure now why keeping high blood levels.
Increased: immunoglboulins. Sjogren is associated with chronic inflammation and elevated serum immunoglobulins so that total serum proteins are increased. It is not the serum proteins, but the underlying disorder that needs to be treated.

Need values: 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 help to have the actual values of these tests. The values may still be in the normal range though at the extremes of normal values. ...Read more
I've had an ongoing high Platelet count & Low RBC Count. What can be causing it? Is it some type of disease or disorder? Can my child have it as well?
RBC loss: Loss or destruction of RBC or any ongoing blood loss may be making your blood count low. To make up for the loss your bone marrow becomes hyperactive making more RBC and platelets. RBC still stay low due to ongoing loss but platelets remains high. please ask your doctor if you have evidence of hemolysis (RBC destruction) or ongoing blood loss ...Read more
