Cbc shows i'm anemic. Red blood cell morphology showed platelets- adequate,  microcytes 1+, polychromasia 1+. What do those results mean?

Nothing alone: I'd think first of iron deficiency but it's not going to reveal the actual cause of your anemia -- which must be found. As a pathologist and lab specialist, i'm constantly reminding people that the results are useful only in the clinical context. Your physician will look at your diet, possible reasons for blood loss, your past & maybe family history and more. Stay proactive. ...Read more

Lab results WBC 15.6 mchc29.6, 649platlets 4.3lymthocytes 1.6 monocytes 9.7anc what does this mean. history of undiff mixed connective disease. ?

Not much-: An important thing to remember is that lab results are not useful unless there is a clinical context. Advice is based on focusing on the patient, not the numbers. Though you mention a history of undiff mixed connective tissue disease, where there symptoms when labs were drawn? Why were they drawn in the first place? Otherwise , it is best to ask your doctor what the results mean. ...Read more

What does my lab results mean? Glucose SerPl QN Result:54 mg/dL (Low) Chloride SerPl QN Result:97 mmol/L (Low) RBC Result:2-5 /hpf (Abnormal)

What does my lab results mean?
Glucose SerPl QN
Result:54 mg/dL (Low)

Chloride SerPl QN
Result:97 mmol/L (Low)
 
RBC
Result:2-5 /hpf (Abnormal)

Abnormal tests: It is hard to interpret these results without knowing why the test was done and getting a complete history and physical exam. You have have low blood sugar and urine analysis shows Red Blood cells. You surely need further evaluation including blood test ., repeat urine test with culture and may need imaging of your kidneys like ultrasound and /or cat scan and for BloodcSugar more testing as well ...Read more

Significance? Urine- wbc>100/cmm; red blood cells:+++; no growth. Fbc (suggestive of infection)- neutrophil:7.3 10*9/l; mean platelet volume: 12.3fl

Significance? Urine- wbc>100/cmm; red blood cells:+++; no growth. Fbc (suggestive of infection)- neutrophil:7.3 10*9/l; mean platelet volume: 12.3fl

Lab data: These results are meaningless without a clinical history and exam results. Although you have micropyuria and hematuria cannot be sure of the significance without knowing the problems you are investigating and the manner in which the urine was collected. It would be helpful if you provided the remainder of the cbc, but not without expounding on reasons it was done. ...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

Cbc showed i'm anemic. Had a red blood cell morphology done which showed platelets- adequate, microcytes 1+, polychromasia 1+. What does that mean?

Part of anemia: Polychromasia means lots of immature red blood cells in the blood stream . When red blood cells don't have enough nutrients they can be smaller (microcyte) or bigger (macrocyte) than usual. Microcytes + anemia is usually due to iron deficiency. Polychromasia means lots of immature red blood cells are in the blood. It's a a normal response to anemia due to the bone marrow revving up production. ...Read more

Reports showing high CRP & ESR, low ferritine & vitamin D, slightly increased lymphocytes, normocytic hypochromatic blood picture, what does it mean?

Reports showing high CRP & ESR, low ferritine & vitamin D, slightly increased lymphocytes, normocytic hypochromatic blood picture, what does it mean?

Inflammation: This shows that your body is suffering from an inflammatory condition but does not tell us why. This is most likely an autoimmune disease and/or chronic infection (which could be a virus, bacteria, parasites and/or fungal). You need further testing. Take enough Vit. D (about 5000 iu/day) to bring D levels to 50-80.
Get further tests but also I'd also consult a homeopath and Ayurvedic practitioner. ...Read more

You have anemia of: the chronic diseases which includes RA. Get a CCP antibody test to put aside the confusion for good. If CCP antibody is positive then your doctor probably made the right diagnosis which is RA.

Blood flow cytmtry shows dual positive cd4cd30 cells absolute count of 2354. IGG slightly elevated with elevated light chains, T cell Beta clone noted?

Asking what?: If your are requesting a diagnosis online, this is not the appropriate venue. Though the flow cytometry results are not totally normal, your results should be reviewed with the physician who ordered it. This format does not give us the ability to determine if your clinical presentation and lab results are consistent with a specific diagnosis. ...Read more

Iron Deficieny: Sure looks like you have Iron deficiency. Do you get heavy periods ? You have almost no storage iron or make red blood cells and this is what the low ferritin about. Take 1 iron pill a day at the least. ...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

What do these results mean? Decreased MCH and elevated RDW in blood test?

Suggests low iron: Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (mch) relates to how much hemoglobin on your red blood cell (see mchc - adds concentration to mch). Forget exact acronym, but RDW measures (via flow cytometry) size of many red cells--normal to have all about one size. If becoming anemic, see wide variation which raises RDW #. Both of these can be due to low iron, but also folate (folic acid) or B12--ask your Dr for context & pl ...Read more

POT and Minerals: A twenties female taking Aldactone (spironolactone) and who has dizziness needs blood mineral and thyroid tests. If these are normal a mild case of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (pots) becomes of concern. I have seen pots problem in women with joint hypermobility syndrome (jhs), and generalized musculoskeletal deconditioning seems etiologic. See an osteopath. ...Read more
