Iron deficiency can increase platelets as can inflammation; high altitude and smoking can raise the red count---a good history and physical are needed. Good luck. ...Read more
Normal sugar levels: For children and non-pregnant adults, normal blood sugar (glucose) level is considered <100 mg/dl in fasting morning state, and <140 mg/dl after a meal. Anything above these levels is considered either pre-diabetes (fasting 100-125, post-meal 140-199) or diabetes mellitus (fasting >=126, post-meal >=200 mg/dl). Low blood sugar varies depending on person, but typically is considered <60-70 mg/dl. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

However, if the patient is inadequately hydrated, or has decreased blood flow to the kidneys during the operation these values can increase.

Numbers are numbers: Lab results are numbers, and numbers are just numbers. They have little meaning without looking at the whole person. Low hemoglobin, hematocrit, and red blood cell counts means blood cells are not being made fast enough, are being lost (through bleeding), are being broken up, or any combination of such problems.

What does high prolactin levels with high red blood cells with high hemoglobin and hematocrit levels mean?
Underlying cause ?: These are each signs of disease - need to find underlying cause to fix. High platelets and high WBC come from any kind of inflammation (infection, autoimmune, injury, etc), high potassium can be cellular damage or kidneys not working well. Anemia can be from internal or external bleeding, blood cells being destroyed, or inability to create enough new rbcs (nutritional or bone marrow problem). ...Read more
No, but...: If a man's hemoglobin is more than 17.5 or thereabouts, it's worth trying to find the cause. Extremely viscous blood (igm, extremely polythemia) may require extra pressure to pump, but in such situations the problem is obvious. ...Read more
Systolic / Diastolic: The top number is the systolic and the bottom number is the diastolic. For adults, over 140 for the top or 90 for the bottom is usually considered too high. The number is not a fraction itself, this is just how it is denoted in the medical community. ...Read more
Fetal Hemoglobin: The values of the WBC (white blood count) and hemoglobin (Hgb)-F or fetal hemoglobin are crucial to any answer. High Hgb-F is commonly seen in those with hereditary conditions affecting hemoglobin such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia. If you have either of these then high Hgb-F and high WBC can occur. You need to present the actual numbers, and also tell us your ethnicity. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
