All bloodwork normal, except RDW slightly low???

All bloodwork normal, except RDW slightly low???

RDW: The RDW is the rbc distribution width. If the rest of your panel was negative I would not be concerned. The RDW will change with conditions like sickle cell disease. It can be also associated with dietary deficiencies such as iron or folic acid. ...Read more

Normal hemoglobin, lower than normal MCH and MCHC). Serum ferritin in low normal range(40). What could it mean?

Normal hemoglobin, lower than normal MCH and MCHC). Serum ferritin in low normal range(40). What could it mean?

Stop worrying: You may have a very mild thalassemia variant. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end. Ask your physician whether you have "thal minor" -- simply so that you'll know in case you are thinking of marrying someone else with it. ...Read more

CBC test results: Elevated MCHC, elevated MCH, bottom of range for Haematocrit, everything else within normal ranges. What do these results mean?

Nothing: Your physician may want to repeat them. I trust you do not have spherocytosis or if you do, that you've been worked up. At most, a reticulocye count may be in order. Sometimes the machines can be a bit mis-calibrated. High MCHC is quite uncommon and if you feel well I wouldn't be troubled. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. ...Read more

No, not likely: Your platelet count is a bit high. But you should get it rechecked before you get too concerned as the counts can fluctuate from one week to the other. We do not get too concerned unless your platelet count is over 500,000 and rising steadily. ...Read more

Normal hb and normal wbc, normal platelet , slightly low RBC 4.4 ( range is 4.5-5.11) is this considered normal ?

Normal hb and normal wbc, normal platelet , slightly low RBC 4.4 ( range  is 4.5-5.11) is this considered normal ?

Lab variation: This is usually not alarming. It is usually considered lab variation. Most of the time the ordering physician considers the reason they ordered the test, and decides if the variation has any significance in relation to that reason. If so, then they sometimes re-order at a future date to see if it indicates a certain directional trend. ...Read more

What could normal cbc, normal wbc, normal rbc, low hbg, and low hct indicate besides anemia?

Anemia: Low hemoglobin and hematocrit indicate anemia. The normal rbc count suggests a type of thalassemia. In thalassemia, the MCV (size of cells) is low-the cells are small. I suggest you discuss the results with your doctor, or that you see a hematologist. ...Read more

Microcytosis=MCV<80: The good news is that you have normal Hgb and Hct so are not anemic at this time. When mcv and mch are low, it suggests that to maintain a normal Hct and Hbg, your body has compensated by making more rbc (high rbc) that are slightly smaller (low mcv and mch). Most common cause would be mild iron deficiency or thalassemia, but increased rbc can also be related to elevation. ...Read more

Have low monocytes and normal lymphocytes?

Have low monocytes and normal lymphocytes?

Context: As a pathologist, i spend a lot of time telling other folks, "don't focus on the numbers, focus on the person." a low absolute monocyte count seldom means anything. A low percentage of monocytes may reflect a transient increase in other cells due to the slight stresses of minor illness or everyday life. If your physician is not concerned, you should not be either. ...Read more

What is normal range for TSH levels?

Depends on lab, but: Depends alot on the lab you use: most run roughly from 0.3 to about 5.0. But - this is important - most endocrinologists now consider anything above (roughly) 2.0-2.5 to be elevated, meaning an under-active thyroid. See your doctor for more specifics. ...Read more
