Elevated Hemoglobin Rbc Hematocrit And Neutrophils And Kidney Disease
I was wondering what would cause an elevated RBC hemoglobin hemotocrit and neutrophils count. I also had irregular bleeding and pelvic pain.
The kidneys are paired organs that lie on either side of the vertebral column. Part of their critical functions include the excretion of urine and removal of nitrogenous wastes products from the blood. They regulate acid-base, electrolyte, fluid balance and blood pressure. Through hormonal signals, the kidneys control the ...Read more
Dad has hemoglobin 9.5 hematocrit 28, MCV 106 and RBC 2.7 mil. Wbc, platelets, kidney, liver, vitam are normal. He got maltofer pill, RBC up. Why anemia?
See hematologist: How old is your father? He has macrocytic anemia- there are different conditions can cause this anemia- from vitamin deficiency, liver problem, thyroid problem, breaking down of red blood cells to problem with his bone marrow. He should ask his pmd to refer him to see a hematologist for further work-up. A bone marrow biopsy may be needed to be done to find the cause of anemia. Read more
Low wbc, low rbc, low igm, low neutrophil, low monocyte, hematocrit and hemoglobin levels are within range, mcv high, an ocassional myocelyte. Pt/ptt unknow?
Dad has 10 hemoglobin, 29 hematocrit, 13.6 platelets. But all else normal: mcv, mch, mcvh, esr, neutrophils, wbc, kidney, b12, liver, etc. Why anemia?
Possible SLE? -Butterfly Rash -Anemia (low hemoglobin, hemocrit, low rbc) -High Neutrophils -Swelling in right kidney off/on' -Raynauds -Migraines
Maybe: SLE is possible and I would urge consultation with a rheumatologist. Read more
75y old (single kidney+chronic kidney disease), creatinine (~250), hemoglobin (~9.5), red cell count (3.6), Iron serum (107). Shall we use Aranesp (darbepoetin alfa) injection?
Please explain why is it that the rbc, hemoglobin and hematocrit level of a patient with congenital heart disease is decreased?
Nutrition: The most common reason that hemoglobin and hematocrit are decreased is iron deficiency. In most cases, this is due to either inadequate nutrition (low iron intake) or blood loss (including frequent blood sampling.) neither of these reasons is truly caused by the heart defect, but children with congenital heart disease are at increased risk for either problem.

My RBC is elevated, 5.16 tera/L. N/S woman living at sea level. Hemoglobin 148 g/L; Hematocrit 0.43; RDW 13.9. Ferritin 54 ug/ l. father with PCV.?
Lab data: Without placing this into some clinical context there is no way in which to interpret these numbers. You need to discuss this with the doctor who ordered the tests and specifically ask why the test was ordered. Read more
Would a splenic infarct still be affecting a CBC after 7 months? Rbc hemoglobin hematocrit absolute immat. Granulocytes platelets all still elevated.
More info needed:
A splenic infarct, by itself, shouldn't have all those affects. If your spleen is hyperactive you can have low counts, and if it is big and making extra cells (ie: extracellular hematopoesis) which is found in certain hematologic conditions, you may have elevated cells.

Splenic infarct due to blood clot for unknown reason. Rbc hemoglobin hematocrit absolute immat. Granulocytes platelets all still elevated. Normal?
No not normal: You are lucky that you developed blood clot in a non essential organ. If this were your heart or brain where blood clot formed or travelled, it could have been life-threatening or at least severe impairment would have resulted. See a blood specialist, hematologist, for an opinion whether you should be on anticoagulation. Read more
What does it signify if your RBC, hemoglobin and hematocrit are low and have been for at least 6 months?
It is called Anemia: You should send us your lab results. From what you have described, you have Anemia which can be caused by many different reasons including excessive blood loss, Iron deficiency or lack of blood formation due to another reason. You should go see a medical doctor (Internist preferred) and request evaluation and further testing to find the cause and treat it. Read more
Recent Labs RBC 3.6 (3.8-5.10 m/ul) Hematocrit 34.3 (35.0-45.0 %) Others normal Hemoglobin 11.7 (11.7-15.5) Why is Hemoglobin ok but not the other 2?
Anemia: 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 hemoglobin is also low and you are anemic. Iron deficiency is the common cause of anemia in woman of reproductive age. You should discuss taking oral iron and multivitamin supplement with your doctor. Read more
Not much: If blood contains normal amount of hemoglobin, it will carry oxygen to tissues and CO2 to lungs normally. If red cells are a little larger than normal, number of red cells ("RBC") could be slightly low. You could have macrocytosis (large cells) without disease, but might want MD to rule out some causes of it (low B12, low thyroid, increased reticulocytes, and others) just to be sure. Read more
RBC count low (3.85), hemoglobin 12, Hematocrit was 36.5%, MCV 94.8, MCH 31.2, MCHC 32.9. I am a 38 y.o. female. Should I be concerned about low RBC?
What does it mean when you have a high rdw, normal RBC, low hemoglobin, low hematocrit, low mcv, &mch and low mchc?
Yes: By definition. Insist on being told the cause, there are many. Read more
Of red blood cell number. Classically this was the "packed cell volume." blood was placed in a microtube and spun in a centrifuge. The rbcs settle to the bottom and one measures the height in the tube and reported as a percentage. Now determined by an automated machine. A typical hct is about 3 ...Read more
