I'm 33 years old female I have very high RBC in urine (50-150mm3). I had ct scan and all seems normal. Could it be from vaginal discharge as I breastfed?

I'm 33 years old female I have very high RBC in urine (50-150mm3). I had ct scan and all seems normal. Could it be from vaginal discharge as I breastfed?

Sometimes: Breastfeeding would be unrelated, but yes, in women who are on their period or spotting a urinalysis can show blood that is not really coming from the bladder. A doctor may perform a catheter urine collection to eliminate the chance of contamination from vaginal blood/discharge. If the blood really is from the bladder and with no recent UTI, further testing may be needed, i.e. cystoscopy

High in urine rbc, what could be a cause?

High in urine rbc, what could be a cause?

RBCs: This means there is a source of blood entering the urinary tract. This must be taken into account with other information, to include other abnormal findings on the urine, other labs, and clinical context (symptoms, situation, etc.).

Sudden severe fever, chills, vomiting (2 days) urine test shows high RBC count so the doctor says it's UTI. 2 days later I started coughing.?

Sudden severe fever, chills, vomiting (2 days) urine test shows high RBC count so the doctor says it's UTI. 2 days later I started coughing.?

Go to doctor ASAP: The presence of red blood cells in the urine is not consistent with urinary tract infection. It is more consistent with glomerulonephritis. The fact that you are now describing coughing in addition suggests what is known as a pulmonary renal syndrome. This needs immediate attention.

Non specific: High igg can be from different causes, most commonly if you are fighting an infection it transiently increases. The other 2 anomalies are only significant if sustained. What are your symptoms? Why did the doctor ask for these tests?

What could a high lym, high baso and high RBC mean?

What could a high lym, high baso and high RBC mean?

Elevated counts: High lymphocytes are very non specific from viral infection (benign) to very severe such as lymphoma (disease of the lymphocytes) as well as many others. HIgh basophil is uncommon but that too can be non specific and not serious but on rare occasion can indicate a bone marrow issue. Seeking your PCP's opinion as to whether a referral to a hemoatologist (blood MD) is a good idea to follow.

Just got my test results. What does a high Rbc (5.72) mean? Should I be worried?

Just got my test results. What does a high Rbc (5.72) mean? Should I be worried?

It's ok: RBC stands for red blood cells. The most important numbers to look at on a CBC are Hgb (hemoglobin), Hct (hematocrit), WBC and platelets. If all those are within range then you're fine!

For years ive been iron deficient but had normal to high RBC. How is this possible? Potential Cause? Unexplained and untreated due to normal/high RBC.

Thalassemia: It is likely that your small red cells led to a miscall. You can have this coexisting even with real iron deficiency. Get with a competent hematologist.

Got is low, chloride is high, rbc/hpf is high, and blood is moderate (abnormal)?

Need actual result: 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. You have not provided the actual results and it is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without data.

I am having high RBC count 5.5 million cells/ul Haemoglobin is normal MCV is low What does it mean? What should I do to reduce RBC count?

I am having high RBC count 5.5 million cells/ul Haemoglobin is normal MCV is low What does it mean? What should I do to reduce RBC count?

Probably thal minor: Ask your physician whether you have beta-thalassemia minor, and whether a few simple labs can confirm it. It's worth knowing because if you marry someone else who has it, you may have a child whose life will be very sickly with thal major.
