Microcytosis=MCV<80: The good news is that you have normal Hgb and Hct so are not anemic at this time. When mcv and mch are low, it suggests that to maintain a normal Hct and Hbg, your body has compensated by making more rbc (high rbc) that are slightly smaller (low mcv and mch). Most common cause would be mild iron deficiency or thalassemia, but increased rbc can also be related to elevation. ...Read more

HIgh potassium-6.4 HeMoglobin- 15.6 Hematocrit--45.7 Mcv-92 Lymphs--60% Lymphs absolute-4.1?

HIgh potassium-6.4
HeMoglobin- 15.6
Hematocrit--45.7
Mcv-92
Lymphs--60%
Lymphs absolute-4.1?

Abnormal labs: The potassium is elevated. I would follow back with your doctor. This could be a falsely elevated level due to cell hemolysis. If this is truly elevated, you would need evaluation and treatment. ...Read more

What do blood results mean ? TIBC, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, RBC & MCH all LOW.. Retic count & RDW are HIGH. Iron, Tran Sat, Ferriten, MCV NORMAL

What do blood results mean ? TIBC, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, RBC & MCH all LOW..   Retic count & RDW are HIGH. Iron, Tran Sat, Ferriten, MCV NORMAL

Anemia: Your results indicate anemia. The cause requires identification. Strong possibilities from high retic count include blood cell hemolysis (breakdown) or blood loss from your body. Needs more attention as soon as possible. ...Read more

Low hemoglobine, hematocrit&creatinine w/anisocytosis poikilocytosis anisochromia microcytes dianocytes schitocytes difusse basophilia, what it means?

Get it looked at: Your peripheral smear and your labs need to be reviewed by a hematologist or hematopathologist for accuracy of the lab report and possible diagnosis. It may be nothing more than minor genetic fluke, or something significant. Heads up -- vasculitis in the gall bladder wall is usually nothing to worry about though it scares some pathologists into overcalls. ...Read more

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

Is my anemia considered severe? 44yr female Hemoglobin-9.9, hematocrit-32.5, MVC-69fL, MHC-20.9, MCHC-30.4, RDW-19.1, RBC- normal, WBC- normal.

Is my anemia considered severe? 44yr female   Hemoglobin-9.9,  hematocrit-32.5, MVC-69fL, MHC-20.9, MCHC-30.4,  RDW-19.1,  RBC- normal, WBC- normal.

Wrong question: Please forgive my frankness. "A little bit anemic" is like being "a little big pregnant." Your anemia requires a workup. Being microcytic, and I presume new (not thalassemia), you've got iron deficiency until proved otherwise. Unless you're an ill-advised vegetarian, you're losing blood -- and until it's proved otherwise, you need to search for a cancer, ulcer, or hookworm. ...Read more

My wbc4.7, rbc4.18, hemoglobin 13.4, hematocrit39.5, mcv94.6, MCH 32.0, mchc33.8, rdw14.7, platelet count 219, absolute neutrophil ct122, segs26, is this bad?

My wbc4.7, rbc4.18, hemoglobin 13.4, hematocrit39.5, mcv94.6, MCH 32.0, mchc33.8, rdw14.7, platelet count 219, absolute neutrophil ct122, segs26, is this bad?

How are you feeling?: Any fever, infections? Good news: you do not have anemia. Platelet count is also normal. Total white cells number is acceptable. I believe that you made a mistake in absolute neutrophil ? The % neutrophil (seg) is 26, lower than normal. As long as you do not have fever& free from infections, you are safe. Consult with hematologist. Do not worry. Simple problem.. Can be easily handled. Thanks. ...Read more

Rbc-3.37L, hemoglobin-8.9L, hematocrit-27.8L, platelet-643H, iron-11L, iron saturation-3%L. What does it mean? Anemia? Will I need iron transfusion?

Rbc-3.37L, hemoglobin-8.9L, hematocrit-27.8L, platelet-643H, iron-11L, iron saturation-3%L. What does it mean? Anemia? Will I need iron transfusion?

Not necessarily: Try taking an oral iron supplement with multivitamins. Take the iron pills with meals. If constipation happens to be an issue, take a fiber laxative like Metamucil. With respect to diet - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat 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. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
