Probably reactive: You are anemic and the numbers are suspicious for iron deficiency. If you are a healthy 34 year-old who menstruates regularly, you could easily be low in iron. The plaelet count is very high, but is likely reacting to the low iron and should come down if it is replaced. The elevated white cells (WBC) is not as easy to understand. Inflamation, infection, other? Could use more info. Good luck. ...Read more

For 58+ F, Hb 10.8, RBC 3.66, PCV 34, MCV 94, MCHC 31, WBC 5.4, Pt 1.8, Iron 57, TIBC 255, TSI 22, RC 1.2, Ferritin 83 indicate which type of anemia ?

Mild anemia: Assuming you've had no recent bleeding episodes, these findings could be seen in mild/early anemia of chronic disease. Hgb and Hct are only boarder line low, and iron panel appears within the reference range. Even something as simple as a particularly heavy period could cause mild anemia of this type, though. If you have a chronic medical illness, it could cause this type of anemia. ...Read more

What is the question: Please rephrase your question to get a better answer. Please discuss in detail with his hematologist. The fact that hematologist gave the iron- means that your hematologist thinks there is a component of iron deficiency. So, continue iron and f/u with your md. However, it does not fit exactly with macrocytosis. Other work up still needs to be done to see explanation for macrocytosis. ...Read more

In ICU Jan 2016 - toxic granulation, NRBC .3, atyp lymphs 6%. No diagnosis. May 2017 admitted w/ naus/vom. WBC 3.4, RBC 3.6, hgb 8. Any link?

Not relevant: The link if any with your 2016 admission may not be relevant. You are anemic and that needs to be investigated, along with your other symptoms. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor.

My blood test results:

Let's try this...: I have only a little bit of the story you've shared. Perhaps it's time to see whether the ast and alt get back to normal after two weeks off alcohol and any not-totally-necessary meds you may be taking. If so, this is the start of a healthier life after alcohol. If not, the workup for virus infections, iron overload, wilson's, autoimmunity & need for exercise can begin. Good luck. ...Read more

Talk to your doc: Labwork was ordered by somebody, and should be interpreted by that person. A WBC of 6.2 is about right, but the RDW is high. The percentages make sense. However somebody got these labs for a reason, and the numbers may mean more to them, since they are looking for something specific. This is really the wrong forum to interpret lab values. ...Read more

How low must one's iron level be in order to be given Iron Infusion Injections?? My hemoglobin is at 9.6. Is this critically low or not too bad?

How low must one's iron level be in order to be given Iron Infusion Injections?? My hemoglobin is at 9.6. Is this critically low or not too bad?

Not critical: Your hemoglobin is low but no where near critically low. Try taking oral iron and multivitamins. If after doing that for six months, there is no improvement, then it would be time to discuss intravenous iron treatment with your doctor. 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. 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. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is mostly colorless. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

What would cause a hemoglobin drop from 12.4 to 9.3 in one week? 12.4 was after a miscarriage and 9.3 was a week later (no bleeding.)

Recheck/follow up: You may have bled considerable in order for Hb to drop by 3 Gms. There is a small chance it was a lab error. Either way you should obtain a repeat Hemoglobin check along with a CBC and then share your results with us or with your gynecologist, asking for further advice. ...Read more

Hemoglobin 12, iron saturation 9. On one 28mg iron pill now for past 4 days, notice BP 112/77 pulse 59 at rest. Is pulse ok that low? Too much iron?

Takes time: It takes several weeks to a few months to see improvement on your iron from taking oral iron. Your pulse have nothing to do with your iron status. If your pulse lower than 60 but you have no symptoms - you are okay. If you are concern go to see your doctor and get yourself checked. ...Read more

Was tested for sickle cell and the trait. I do not have either one. But I have high hemoglobin s & low a. What other than sickle cell can cause this?

Sickle beta thal: If you have high HGB s and low HGB a, then you have sickle beta-plus thalassemia ( if you have HGB a1), or sickle beta-zero thalassemia. ( if you have HGB a2 not HGB a1). These are both forms of sickle cell disease not trait. Beta zero is just as severe as homozygous sickle cell anemia (hgb ss); beta plus is milder in terms of symptoms. ...Read more

I have a hemoglobin level of 7.5, one month ago it was 8.1 (determined low levels from heavy periods). Appt in a month. Until then, do I need to worry?

Start oral iron: If you are anemic from heavy menses, you should take oral iron supplement, available over the counter and take multivitamins also. There is no harm in taking these medications while you are waiting for the appointment, it may do you good. 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. 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.

Can you tell me what this indicates? I was on last day of period but didn't see blood in urine cup.

Probably OK: Positive urine dip stik for Hemoglobin is common. Particularly if you were stillon your period. This also occurs with NSAIDS and blood thinners being most common. Not to overlook serious problems, I will repeat the test on 2-3 weeks and be guided by results. In your case at 45 repeat urinalysis in 2-3 weeks is best advice.
