HB 12% iron 32 mild anisocytosis can it cause fatigue sleepiness weakness?

Yes: Your hemoglobin is a bit low for a male! Depending upon what your genetic background is the anisocytosis along with mild anemia MAY represent a Hemoglobin abnormality (eg: Thalassemia Minor) Hope this helps DR Z ...Read more

My haeogram suggests anisocytosis, what it mean? Is it serious?

My haeogram suggests anisocytosis, what it mean? Is it serious?

Varied sizes: Your red cells come in different sizes. It means nothing by itself, and if there's nothing else wrong with the blood, and you feel okay, I wouldn't give it any more thought. I'm a heavy-duty blood donor; I discovered I produced big red cells when I remembered to take my iron supplement and small ones when I forgot. My anisocytosis was impressive. "treat the person, not the numbers! " cheers. ...Read more

Polychromasia & anisocytosis--are they bad?

Polychromasia & anisocytosis--are they bad?

If both are: Reported that would indicate a blood smear with size and color variation in the red blood cells. While a potential sign of a "stressed" marrow, it would be an over call to say this in and of itself is "bad.". ...Read more

B12, Folate (folic acid): B12 and folate (folic acid) levels when low can cause large mean cell volumes (mcv). It might be wise to have your physician check out your B12 and folate (folic acid) level. ...Read more

My blood test says there are abnormal ovalocytes and anisocytosis present. What does this mean?

My blood test says there are abnormal ovalocytes and anisocytosis present. What does this mean?

Red cell morphology: Ovalocytes are red blood cells which have lost their normal biconcave shape. Anisocytosis means that the red cells are of different non-uniform shapes and sizes. These findings are used in conjunction with other elements of your blood count to classify anemia and identify possible causes. Those can include a variety of things that damage rbcs or interfere with their proper maturation. ...Read more

Hi I want to ask a question my report result say I have a condition anisocytosis and report suggests hb electrophoresis?

Hb electrophoresis: This test may be requested if there is a need to evaluate a patient for abnormalities of the hemoglobin molecule. If found, it can shed light on the cause of your abnormal blood report. ...Read more

My Hemogram report says :ALERT!!! Anisocytosis, what is this. Is this serious and do I need to go for any treatment for this?

My Hemogram report says :ALERT!!! Anisocytosis, what is this. Is this serious and do I need to go for any treatment for this?

Need more info: 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, if that is the only abnormality, it is not anything to be concerned about. If your hemoglobin is normal and WBC count is normal, I would not worry. Why did you have the test done? ...Read more

Hello doctor fatima here! I have a question. .......i would like for yr concern. ..i hv got results of my cp test it confirmed anisocytosis hypochromi?

Hello doctor fatima here! I have a question. .......i would like for yr concern. ..i hv got results of my cp test it confirmed anisocytosis hypochromi?

Anemia: Anisocytosis is a large variation in the size and shape of the red blood cells (They are usually smooth, uniform and disk-shaped). Hypochromia means that the red blood cells are pale because they contain too little hemoglobin (the oxygen carrying molecule of the red blood cell). These findings are consistent with a moderately severe iron-deficiency anemia. Hopes this info helps! ...Read more

Is it normal for a 2.5 YO to have results of Anisocytosis: Rare Burr Cells: Slight, Microcytes: Rare, Polychromasia: Rare on a morphology Report?

Is it normal for a 2.5 YO to have results of Anisocytosis: Rare Burr Cells: Slight, Microcytes: Rare, Polychromasia: Rare on a morphology Report?

2.5 YO: No, your comments are not "normal". If your child has the issues you report you must continue to see a specialist. If you are not satisfied with the doctor you take tour child, have one of your friends refer you to a doctor with whom you will be more satisfied. Wish the baby well - please keep me posted; we can all learn something. ...Read more

Hello sir, I am suffering from anisocytosis, thrombopenia, platelets agrigats, macroplatolets...please help me. How to recover my self from these.

Many symptoms: Sorry, but you apparently cannot recover yourself. You must see your doctor as soon as you can. If there is a delay you should probably have someone take you to the nearest Emergency facility. Hope all goes well! ...Read more

What does Platelet anisocytosis mean on blood smear? Platelet count is 454K. (10 days ago it was 482K)

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

19 months old anisocytosis 1+, microcytes 1+, ovalocytes 1+, poikilocitosis 1+, RBC count high 5.6 (4-5.2), MCV low 68 (70-86), rdw. Rbc high 19.8 (12-16)?

19 months old anisocytosis 1+, microcytes 1+, ovalocytes 1+, poikilocitosis 1+, RBC count high 5.6 (4-5.2), MCV low 68 (70-86), rdw. Rbc high 19.8 (12-16)?

Iron deficiency: Without having more a picture of what is going on, those numbers would be consistent with iron deficiency, especially given the age of the child. Iron studies should be performed to confirmed. Does the child drink a significant amount of milk (>18 oz per day)? A trial of oral iron (not just what is found in multivitamins) would be a reasonable thing to try. ...Read more

Low hemoglobine, hematocrit&creatinine w/anisocytosis poikilocytosis anisochromia microcytes dianocytes schitocytes difusse basophilia, what it means?

Get it looked at: Your peripheral smear and your labs need to be reviewed by a hematologist or hematopathologist for accuracy of the lab report and possible diagnosis. It may be nothing more than minor genetic fluke, or something significant. Heads up -- vasculitis in the gall bladder wall is usually nothing to worry about though it scares some pathologists into overcalls. ...Read more

CBP, ESR, Serum Iron, TIBC and identified RBC Morphology : Microcytic- Hypochromic smear seen, Anisocytosis-Poikilocytosis. What test covers etiology?

See your doctor: Hypochromic microcitic anemia is most likely due to iron deficiency, but if there is significant poikilocytosis other causes are possible. Your doc may want to send you to a hematologist if the etiology is unclear. Good luck. ...Read more

My complete blood picture results note is rbcs show hypochromia, microcytosis and anisocytosis should I see a doctor or not?

My complete blood picture results note is rbcs show hypochromia, microcytosis and anisocytosis should I see a doctor or not?

Anemia of low iron?: Per your description, the most likely cause is iron deficiency anemia (hypochromia= less color/red than usual, microcytosis=smaller cells, anisocytosis=too many cells of different sizes). Being female of 39 (menstrual loss), I suspect this is most likely the diagnosis. Take some otc irons, avoid carbonated beverages (they bind up your irons), and consult doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more
