Low ferritin with normal iron and normal blood count. Any causes or workup needed?

Low ferritin with normal iron and normal blood count. Any causes or workup needed?

Yes: Often a precursor to iron deficiency anemia. Just because the patient is not anemic does not explain the low ferritin. Is the patient absorbing iron? Is the patient having heavy periods? Did they have a gastric bypass? You need to look for the cause because eventually anemia will develop. Hope this helps. ...Read more

What does high 'mean platelet volume' and high 'lymphocytes' in complete blood count(cbc) test mean?

What does high 'mean platelet volume' and high 'lymphocytes' in complete blood count(cbc) test mean?

Discuss with PCP: Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a machine-calculated measurement of the average size of platelets found in blood. MPV is higher when there is destruction of platelets. Lymphocytes are usually high on viral infections or some cancers. Discuss with your doctor about it, as lab results by themselves, like this one, don't have a context to determine level of severity associated with them. ...Read more

37.7% Neutrophils and 47.3% Lymphocytes with ANC Neutrophil Absolute = 1.48 K/cu mm. All other values for CBC in the normal range. Cause for concern?

No: 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, while your cell counts are slightly out of kilter, it is not a reason to be concerned about. If you do not have any symptoms, watchful waiting is appropriate. ...Read more

Elevated total WBC count (11,000) with elevated total neutrophils, lymphocytes and eosinophils. But CRP & SED rate are NORMAL. What causes this?

Any symptoms?: Why was the test done? Do you have any symptoms?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, your WBC is at the high end of normal, but it may be your normal. 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. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...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

Cbc done - hgb, hct low(10.6/33.3). The mcv, MCH and MCH were borderline low. The RDW high. Donated blood 1 month previous with 12.9 hgb. ? Diagnosis

Cbc done - hgb, hct low(10.6/33.3). The mcv, MCH and MCH were borderline low. The RDW  high. Donated blood 1 month previous with 12.9 hgb. ? Diagnosis

Not enough data: Most cbc's only tell us what numerically is wrong. The only sure way to tell a CBC is abnormal is to look at the peripheral smear. Your indices indicate that you may be iron deficient, however that requires a thorough assessment for blood loss from the gi, gu and respiratory tract. If you donate blood, you can exacerbate the iron deficiency. ...Read more

What does having low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts mean?

What does having low MCV high red blood cells with abnormal morphology with low neutrophils and high lymphocytes counts mean?

Thalassemia?: Low MCV (small sized) red cells with increased number of rbcs is most commonly seen with thalassemia, an inherited hemoglobin abnormality, but it is not associated with low neutrophils. Not all low neutrophil counts are significant, as normal varies with ethnic background. Infections can cause temporary low neutrophils. See a hematologist to sort this out. ...Read more

What causes high white blood count along with high absolute monocytes levels show?

What causes high white blood count along with high absolute monocytes levels show?

Infection: Elevated WBC count is usually a response to an infection. The elevated monocytes may mean that you have a chronic infection or an autoimmune condition. You are taking methylprednisolone which is also used to treat the symptoms of an autoimmune condition so the elevated monocytes may be due to the condition that you are taken that med for. Check with your doctor. ...Read more

Explanations for elevated bilirubin ?  (indirect high, direct normal)...also normal hemoglobin, low platelets, other liver function tests normal

Need more info: About 2-3% of otherwise normal people have elevated bilirubin, usually less than 5.0 mg/dL. Gilbert's disease is a usual cause and it despite disease in the name, it does not adversely affect a person's health. If you have any symptoms, it would be prudent to see your doctor.
