I have high platelets, low MPV, low lymphocyte percentage, low MCH, high segmented neutrophils, high atypical lympcytes, high reticulocyte count?

Any symptoms?: Why did you have these tests done? 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 helped to have the actual values rather than your interpretation of high and low. It would prudent to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Tough set of labs: Suppression of multiple cell lines certainly is a concerning finding on a CBC. Yes, there are pediatric cancers that may present with this type of blood test results. Talking to your heme/onc specialist as soon as possible would be advisable! But don't jump to conclusions because a specialist with the "whole picture" may give you a very surprising answer! ...Read more

Still no definitve : Diagnosis, and we can't draw conclusions too from the limited info on that limited platform.

High wbc, low hematocrit, low mcv, low mch, high platelet count, low lymphocytes and monocytes - what does this all mean?

Hard to say...: It sounds like it may be an infection but it's impossible to say without more information including if you have any other signs or symptoms. It is also important to know the numbers: how high is that wbc, for example. The best way to go for you is to discuss it with you doctor directly. ...Read more

I have nausea, lightedness and body weakness. 
CBC came back with
Normal WBC
High platelets
High RBC
Low MCV
Low MCH
High RDW?

Discuss it: You didn't give the values, but if they're not way out-of-range, I'd check you for thalassemia minor. If you have it, it's worth knowing as marrying another person with it can be a disaster for your children. I can't explain the high platelets, though the common cause is coexisting iron deficiency which can complicate this stuff. Pure iron deficiency might show low RBC instead. ...Read more

My CBC test shows high wbc, low hematocrit, low mcv, low mch, high platelet count, low lymphocytes and monocytes, can you explain this to me?

No, we can't: I suspect you're iron deficient (microcytic anemia and high platelets) and I am not even going to guess on the others. This is the wrong forum to bring questions that you have a duty to ask of your personal physician. The workup needs to continue. Best wishes. ...Read more
