Wbc is : white blood cells and platelets are the third element in the cbc. ...Read more

Urine glucose?: Positive Urine Glucose is never normal. But you mention normal serum glucose? Keep in touch with the ordering physician and followup on this.

I'm taking Diovan (valsartan) hct and metformin they did a blood test and it came a little high on the liver what do you think it can be?
Fatty Liver?: Many people with diabetes or pre-diabetes have high liver proteins (ast & alt) due to metabolic problems resulting in fat being deposited in the liver resulting in inflammation. Weight loss and a low-carb diet may be helpful in stopping this. Your doctor may also want to check if the high liver proteins are caused by either of your medications. ...Read more
My blood hct came back at 55.4%. Hbg 18.4 my brother and father had polycythemia vera. Am I at risk at that level. Blood test was for severe hbp.

My father in law had his prostate removed a little over 1yr. Blood test: hemoglobin 9.8 iron 27 hct 31 MCV 71 RBC 4.4 mchc 31 MCH 22 RDW 19.6. Help?
Rbc count, WBC count, platelet count, RBC index, WBC differential count, hb, hct all blood test normal. Facing bleeding gum problem recently. Opinion?
Not blood's fault: If CBC normal as you say, more likely due to a change in the oral environment/ dental hygiene. Consider this to see if any change in brush/floss frequency or duration, change in tobacco or alcohol product use, or change in life stressors. In the interim, be sure you are brushing twice daily and flossing daily--this should stop bleeding--if not, consult dentist for exam and advice. ...Read more
Hello! I took my blood test recently. And I got some not in the range. Like my HGB is 9.5 my MCHM is 28.84 my MCH is 17.37 my MCV and MCH are low too?
See below: 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, from what you described you likely have iron deficiency anemia. You may try taking oral iron supplement and a multivitamin tablet for about six months and then repeat the test. ...Read more
I am a 24 y/o female, 109lbs. I had a blood test done and my hemoglobin level was 116 (low) what does this mean? How can this be fixed? Will I be okay?
Anemic: This means that you are mildly anemic. The most common cause of anemia in young women is iron deficiency due to menstrual blood loss and/or recent pregnancy/delivery of a child. If iron deficiency is found to be the cause of anemia, iron supplementation should correct the problem. ...Read more

Is checking hemoglobin level without a blood test or any machine possible? If yes, how? I would like to have an answer today or at least by tomorrow.
Not reliably: If someone is claiming to do this without any apparatus, or by a psychic pendulum or "applied kinesioogy" or something that looks hokey, be skeptical and consider making a report to the local prosecutor. ...Read more
My blood test results are: Hgb 10.8 Mcv 77.4 Serum ferritin 6 Can you tell me what these mean and if I should be concerned?
Anemia: The low hemoglobin indicates that you have anemia and the other two values suggest that this is due to insufficient iron. Most often in a woman of your age this is due to menstrual blood loss. Iron supplementation or a higher iron content in your diet should allow you to recover and feel better. ...Read more
Blood test result: Iron 14.4 umol/L Ferritin 61.2 ng/mL RBC 3.87 L Hgb 116 L Why is RBC and hgb lower than normal?
You're anemic.: This is serious business. You need to work with your physician to discover the reason. Get all the iron studies together, including total iron binding capacity, along with your personal history, and a report on how your peripheral smear looks, and perhaps a reticulocyte count. Don't stop until you understand why and what you can do to perhaps save your life. ...Read more
I did a blood test and my platelet count turned out to be 724*10^9/l I have iron hgb 110g/l 16ug/dl is that dangerous and how to lower the platelet co?
I am not sure: Which numbers go with what in your question. A HGB of 11 g/dl would be low for a male. Iron deficiency is also associated with thrombocytosis, but would be an usual diagnosis in a young male. Need more info here. ...Read more
My blood test shows that.... Thet Hgb, PCV normal and RBCs Count high and MCV, MCH and MCHC low and RDW-CV high. .......what is that means?
Thalassemia minor?: With normal packed cell volume, high red cell count, low MCV, I'd consider you may have thalassemia minor. This is good to know because if you marry someone else who has this, the children may have the very serious thalassemia major. Talk with your physician about this and what he/she thinks is actually going on. ...Read more
Anemic. Blood test 5 weeks ago - HGB 11.3, Ferritin 9 & RDW 16.8%. Current test: HGB 11.9, Ferritin 23 & RDW 17.8%. Worrisome? Doc said poss. Gastric.
? more work-up: Low ferritin suggests iron deficiency due to blood loss. You may still be menstruating, perhaps heavily. But most doctors would not assume anemia due to vaginal bleeding at your age. Gastrointestinal work-up with colonoscpy (if not done recently) and upper GI tract (esophagus/stomach) is indicated to check for blood losing conditions including esophagitis, ulcers, inflammation or tumor. ...Read more
