Was told my CBC was all normal and So can I assume my systems close to the bone marrow (bowel, kidney etc) are relatively ok?

Was told my CBC was all normal and So can I assume my systems close to the bone marrow (bowel, kidney etc) are relatively ok?

No: I'm concerned about why you're asking. People can die of kidney failure, bowel obstructions / infections, cirrhosis and much else with completely normal CBC's. A chemical profile will add more information, but the most important test in medicine is your history and physical exam. If you have health anxiety, your best step is to cultivate a close relationship with a trustworthy physcian. Cheers. ...Read more

Is kidney failure linked to bone marrow cancer and if treated is kidney process reversible. Biopsy report says 17 glo.Nonglobally sclerotic 4 ischemic?

It varies: Most cases of kidney failure caused by one of the blood cancers are reversible if detected early and treated promptly. But your biopsy indicates this may have been ongoing for quite some time. I would have you be patient and be hopeful at least for 4-6 weeks before you will know if this is going to improve or not. ...Read more

Dad 70 yrs, non alchoholic. Has macrocytic anemia. Hb 10. Mcv 110. No blood loss. Bone marrow, kidney, liver, vitamins, colonscopy normal. Why anemic?

Dad 70 yrs, non alchoholic. Has macrocytic anemia. Hb 10. Mcv 110. No blood loss. Bone marrow, kidney, liver, vitamins, colonscopy normal. Why anemic?

Ideas: He's not on medications and has normal thyroid, correct? He needs a reticulocyte count to determine whether these cells are big because they're young. I'd be surprised if that was the explanation. Next will perhaps be an offer of a bone marrow tap to look for myelodysplastic syndrome. ...Read more
