Ferritin, hematocrit, hglobin normal. Hematocrit 44. Will iron increase it? Serum iron low. Rbc count normal and above.

Ferritin, hematocrit, hglobin normal. Hematocrit 44. Will iron increase it? Serum iron low. Rbc count normal and above.

Why do you ask?: This is almost certainly the right hematocrit for your body. No "pop" remedy is going to increase it; if you are seeking to raise it artificially for an athletic competition, you'll have to ask elsewhere. Loading up on iron is likely to make you sick, both acutely (upset stomach) and long-term (iron-overload still kills plenty of men). ...Read more

My Hb count is very high I.e.17.4 and RBC count is also 6.4 million but the iron count is low.i.e. 33. What are the possible causes?

History is key: If you've been like this all your life, this may be your normal value and need not be a concern. If you tend to turn blue or have poorer exercise tolerance than your peers, you may have a right-to-left shunt in heart or lungs that's been missed. You may have a minor Hgb or receptor mutation. I trust you're not on anabolic steroids. The Hgb is high-normal for a guy in my book. ...Read more

What number of reasons can you justify for the RBC count in males being higher than that of females?

What number of reasons can you justify for the RBC count in males being higher than that of females?

Homework problem: I would not assign this question. After puberty, men have considerably more testosterone than do women and this promotes the growth of red blood cells. Women have periods and thus tend to lose iron, and pregnancy depletes iron and folic acid, and a woman may thus be anemic as a result. However, this should not happen. The major reason is testosterone. I hope this is the answer teacher wants. ...Read more

In my heamogram the values are RBC count 4.04 low, mcv105.7high, mch36pghigh, rdw14.8%high what does it mean?

MCV is very high: Many lab normal values are usually set at lowest 5th per centile to the highest 95th percentile, and thus about 10% of people who are normal would have a value judged too low or too high. In your case the only definitely abnormal value is the MCV of 105.7. Although there may be a nonconsequential reason for a high mcv, in your case, i absolutely recommend to see a hematologist. ...Read more

Numbers are numbers: The rest of the story is needed, as this one numerical result itself has no worrisome meaning without hearing the rest of the story. One's regular doctor, who knows why a blood test was ordered and who has examined the patient, can be helpful here. Otherwise, these numbers are just numbers... without much meaning. ...Read more
