Does Donating Blood Interfere With A Cbc Blood Test
I regularly donate blood every 2 months. Would this affect blood test results and so which ones? CBC? LFT? CMP? Tbili?
Share on twitter bookmark & share printer-friendly version a complete blood count (CBC) test measures the following: •the number of red blood cells (rbc count) •the number of white blood cells (wbc count) •the total amount of hemoglobin in the blood •the fraction of the blood composed of ...Read more
Sometimes: Sometimes but not always. Leukemia, a form of blood and bone marrow cancer, is frequently detectable in the blood; however, especially if early in the course of the disease, leukemic cells may be confined to the bone marrow and not cross into the blood in sufficient numbers to be detected by a cbc. Ultimately, the complete diagnosis and prognosis of leukemia relies on bone marrow examination.
I want to know what the initials stand for in a CBC blood test. I want to be able to read my blood test results but I don't know what the initials stand for. They have it printed out so that I know if I am high or low but I want to know what the initials
Cbc: Yes, there are some abnormal features that you can see in CBC (and peripheral blood smears) that would increase your suspicion towards certain blood cancer-for instance- circulating blast cells (immature white blood cells) in acute leukemia, and other features that you can see in chronic leukemia- i.e. Cml, cll. You can not see any sign of solid cancer from cbc, however, .See 1 more doctor answer
I made a CBC blood test and my eos% is 6% and normal ranges is from 0.5 - 5.0 % what is that mean is that a sign of a serious disease?
No it's fine.: There is a lot of variability in ranges from lab to lab and blood draw to blood draw. I would call that normal. If we drew your blood again, chances are it would be in the range. Nothing to worry about. You see bumps in eos (short for eosinophils) in allergies, eczema and if you are certain medications. All good.
I got a CBC blood test and my lymphocytes reading was 45.5% and was flagged high...Normal said 42%. Everything else was normal. Is this bad.
Absolute count?: These percentages mean nothing whatever apart from the total number of lymphocytes and the total number of neutrophils. If both are in the reference range or fairly close, this is not a cause for concern.
If u had cancer in your body would a CBC blood test and sed rate blood test indicate there's something going on in your body?
On occasion but...: ...neither is specific nor can be relied upon to detect all forms of cancer.
My father (65 yrs old)did a CBC blood test and all results are normal except for the hemoglobin is below normal 11.5 and the RDW is above normal 16.5
I got a CBC blood test and my lymphocytes reading was 45.5% and was flagged high...and my leucocytes 3.67 was flagged low.
Is that all?: These values fluctuate wildly and if both absolute lymphocyte and absolute neutrophil counts are reasonably close to the normal range, and all else is good, I'd ignore it.
No: That test gives no specific information concerning Ebola, but may be abnormal in a host of different illnesses.See 1 more doctor answer
