I am confused about my recent blood work. What is the hemoglobin, hematocrit, mcv, mch, mchc and rdw?
My bloodwork says my WBC and RBC are high, MCHC & MCH are low, Gran # (Auto), AST and ALT high. Should I be worried?
Tests: Lots of test numbers. HIgh WBC count ususally sign of some type of infection, inflammation or stress. You have MCHC and MCH which are usually low with anemia, but high RBC _(dehydrated?). Your liver enzymes AST/ALT being elevated can be from a number reasons-dehydration, infection, inflammation , medications. All in all I would talk to your doctor ...Read more

Rbc:5.9, mpv :13.5(high),hgb &hct: normal,plt normal, m.c.v and m.c.h slightly low,Rdw:13.3% ,m.c.h.c: normal,normal wbc, thal minor? Is my Rbc high?
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

I am 25 yrs old. I had my blood test and got report low calcium and high in mchc; mch; mcv. What these terms mean?
Not enough info.: 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. The ordering doctor may or may not consider the results a problem, depending on the patient's symptoms and her past medical conditions. ...Read more
My Hg=13.9,Leucocyte =14100,polymorphs=80%,lymphocyte=16%,eosinophils=4%,monocyte=0%,basophils=0% and ESR(observed)=18, RBC count=5.87. Pls Comment?
Ok: The leukocytes are high. If this was checked while you were ill it suggests infection but otherwise is very non-specific. The eosinophils are a higher percentage than typical which most commonly means you are an allergic person. ...Read more
Rbc lo. Hgb, hct ok. Mch & MCV hi. Ferritin ok. B12 & folic acid hi. D lo. Thyroid ok. Rf hi. Repeatable. Tired, weak and unfocused. Cause?
Additional info: What are the actual number values associated with the rbc, hgb, hct, mch, and mcv? This will help establish significance of these high or low values. Do you have relatives with RA or other autoimmune disease? Do you have any history of hepatitis or liver disease (can cause simultaneous high rf and high mcv)? Are there other lab test results for autoimmune disease (ana)? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends.: There is no right and wrong anwers, Clinical practice varies by physician. Duration of iron therapy depends on your goal of therapy. If you just want to normalize your Hb, you can stop iron pills when your Hb becomes normal. If you want also to restore your iron store, you probably should stay on iron pills for additional 3-6 months. I prefer restoring both Hb and iron store. ...Read more

I have low lymphocyte count and high neutrophil count. I am currently taking steroids. Is this normal? Also, I have elevated igG 2000mg/dL.
Am I borderline anemic? Hemoglobin=11.7; Hematocrit=36.6; MCV=71.4; MCH=22.8; MCHC=31.9; RDW=19.4; Symps=headache, tingling hands & face, fatigue
Big picture: If these are percentages, don't even pay attention. Don't worry about monocytes unless you are obviously seriously sick. If absolute lymphs are above 1000, or if total neutrophils below around 15000 without abnormal forms (many bands, toxic granulation) chances are it means nothing especially if you're not otherwise ill. Your physician knows how to interpret these. ...Read more
