Probably Not: The number of each kind of WBC you have is in constant flux and changes depending on many different things. There is likely nothing pathological about your numbers and will likely be normal upon recheck. ...Read more

Why is my B12 elevated to 1484 when all other CBC and differential are normal?

Why is my B12 elevated to 1484 when all other CBC and differential are normal?

Need more info: While your B12 level is above normal, that in itself is not a cause for concern. However, sometimes it is high due to liver damage and bone marrow disorders. If these are excluded by other tests, then you can ignore it. See this site for more info on this topic.

Why I have monocytes, absolute elevated if everything else in CBC (includes diff/plc) test is normal?

Why I have monocytes, absolute elevated if everything else in CBC (includes diff/plc) test is normal?

Probably no reason: The reference range is set so that 5% of healthy folks will test high. I'm going to assume there are no abnormal forms, that you do not have anything to suggest typhoid fever or advancing tuberculosis, and that this is an anomaly found on routine lab work. If so, stop worrying about it. ...Read more

Not tested in CBC: In CBC test lab uses venous blood and will count and measure cells in the blood like red cells, white cells and platelets.
To test for co2 you need arterial blood gases, plasma or serum and is usually for conditions like metabolic acidosis in which case will increase co2 values. Also in cases of COPD and respiratory acidosis can have co2 elevated. ...Read more

What could cause my mono and lymph % to be elevated on cbc?

What could cause my mono and lymph % to be elevated on cbc?

Lowish neuts, maybe?: Percentages don't give much useful information, and absolute white cells counts are of importance if and only if they're considerably away from the reference range, which is set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside. Many folks simply run low-neutrophils for a lifetime without a problem. How do you FEEL? ...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

I had a slightly elevated mean cell hemoglobin concentration in my recent bloodwork. Other CBC normal. What can cause this? I was fasting on that day

Probably fine: This is likely a normal variant seen in your CBC. No need to worry now. Your doctor who ordered the test might want to repeat it in a few months to make sure this is not increasing or other values on your CBC are not changed. ...Read more

Slightly elevated MCHC but normal CBC. Liver enzymes slightly elevated....thoughts?

Slightly elevated MCHC but normal CBC. Liver enzymes slightly elevated....thoughts?

Work up: Ignore the MCHC. Reference ranges are set so a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. Your physician will probably have you repeat the liver enzymes after two weeks off alcohol and meds, or perhaps proceed to a search for possible hepatitis, hemochromatosis, Wilson etc ...Read more

No: You don't indicate what the remainder of the CBC results are, or the absolute WBC count. These values are not normal, but determining the cause of the abnormality would require knowledge of the full clinical picture and all of the results. Discuss with the doctor who ordered this. ...Read more

Need more info: 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. It would be prudent to discuss the results with the doctor who ordered the tests as s/he knows more about your health.

When I do CBC test, will number of my white blood cells always be elevated?

When I do CBC test, will number of my white blood cells always be elevated?

May have no change: When you have an infection, virus or other, the family of white blood cells that is fighting the most will be elevated. For example, in common viruses the lymphocytes will often be the predominant white blood cell by number. In some infections, more often with bacterial infections, the total white blood cell number, or wbc, will be elevated. ...Read more

Routine CBC, basophils elevated at 2.9%, basophils absolute normal at. 1, WBC normal at 5000. Does this mean anything?

Routine CBC, basophils elevated at 2.9%, basophils absolute normal at. 1, WBC normal at 5000. Does this mean anything?

Hard to guess: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with his patient. If the patient's blood basophil count is slightly higher than the reference range, the ordering doctor may or may not consider the result a problem, depending on the patient's previous results, her symptoms, and her medications. ...Read more

What does an elevated rbc count of 5.93 and Hct of 52.7 indicate in 70 year old male? Only other CBC abnormality is absolute monocytes of 1003.

Polycythemia: Elevated red blood cell parameters are concerning for polycythemia. Polycythemia can be reactive to another condition in the body (like chronically low oxygen) or without other associated medical conditions (polycythemia vera). Absolute monocytosis may be related. It has been noted in scientific literature as also seen in polycythemia vera. ...Read more

2yr old CBC showed cytoplasmic vac toxic gran, micro2+ in october. Cbc in june showed low lymph and elevated mono but no smear. Should I still worry?

Lab data: You cannot follow lab results without a full understanding of their relationship to the clinical situation for which they were ordered. Cytoplasmic vacuoles and toxic granulations in wbcs may be present at a moment in time when neutrophils are helping to clear foreign materials from the body. Not sure what you are worried about, but doubt there is a necessity to continue. Be happy. Best. ...Read more
