Suffering from incredible fatigue, muscle soreness, water retention  lab results show normal wbc, low rbc, high mcv/mch, low lymph absolute. Dr ignore?

Low RBC and fatigue: You need to go back to your physician, or whomever ordered the blood test. You have a low rbc, and i assume, by that, you are anemic. With a high mcv, you may have a b-12 or folate deficient anemia. See your physician asap to discuss your anemia's its cause and treatment. Also, get a referral to a cardiologist to evaluate your cardiac function once your anemia is no longer a problem. ...Read more

High MCV & MCH for few years. 2 yrs of low rbc. New CBC has folate & calc. Defic., low bun. 2 mnths ago found soft clavicle lymph "mass". Esophag spsm?

Lots of info: Here. Possible relevance undetermined. From a heme standpoint high MCV and folate deficiency would go together. Folate supplements would be indicated. Cannot relate to esophageal issues. ...Read more

What does it mean to have low RBC, low hematocrit, low MPV, low Lymphocytes, low urea, low albumin, high MCV, and high MCH?

What does it mean to have low RBC, low hematocrit, low MPV, low Lymphocytes, low urea, low albumin, high MCV, and high MCH?

Macrocytic anemia: Please forgive my frankness and the appearance perhaps of flippancy. In our dysfunctional health care system, physicians often have less time to explain and educate. This is serious and you must insist on an explanation. ...Read more

High MCV and MCH for a few years. 2 yrs of low rbc. Recent CBC now has folate & calc. Defic., low bun. 2 mnths ago found soft clavicle lymph "mass". Esophageal probls. & hypogammaglobulinemia. Help?

High MCV and MCH for a few years. 2 yrs of low rbc. Recent CBC now has folate & calc. Defic., low bun. 2 mnths ago found soft clavicle lymph "mass". Esophageal probls. & hypogammaglobulinemia. Help?

Needs more info: Difficult to say based on limited info. High MCV likely due to low folate (did you check b12?). Low BUN is good, so no worries. If you have a clavicular lymph node it needs evaluation for sure. See your doctor! ...Read more

Have hypogammaglobulinanemia. Furth test-pretty low IgG and iga, but IgM not detected, lt chains norm. Cbc-my creatinine high, calc. Low, rbc's low, RDW low, MCV high, MCH high, mpv low. Back/hip pain?

Have hypogammaglobulinanemia. Furth test-pretty low IgG and iga, but IgM not detected, lt chains norm. Cbc-my creatinine high, calc. Low, rbc's low, RDW low, MCV high, MCH high, mpv low. Back/hip pain?

Too complex here: Your question is too complex to answer in a few sentences with little information you provide. When there is hypogammaglobulinemia, you should see a well trained immunologist. It could be primary immunodeficiency or it could be secondary due to protein loss in urine since you mention you have kidney disease. Protein losing nephropathy can cause igg loss too. ...Read more

Male 26, low RBC 4.39*10^12, total haemoglobin 13.2g/dl, MCV 88fl, MCH 30pg, mchc 34 g/dl, reti index 0.84%, ESR 2ml/hr cause of low rbc?

Borderline anemia: Your hemoglobin is also a wee bit low for a man (most men have 13.5 or more). The explanation might be something as simple as having drunk a few extra glasses of water before the blood draw so that you could also provide a urine sample. Your physician may want to check you now for occult blood loss, repeat the cbc, or begin an anemia workup now despite normal indices. Good luck. ...Read more

Hi. I am a bit freaked out. I have a high MCH, low MPV and low RBC. I am tired all the time. What is wrong with me?

Hi.  I am a bit freaked out.  I have a high MCH, low MPV and low RBC.  I am tired all the time.  What is wrong with me?

Need more info: 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, it would have helped to have the actual results not high and low. What is your hemoglobin? For good health - 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

My husband has a high lymphocyte %, low RBC count, and high mch, what does all this combined mean?

My husband has a high lymphocyte %, low RBC count, and high mch, what does all this combined mean?

Insufficient info: Your husband may be anemic and needs further evaluation for the cause. A high mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration has little meaning absent a full picture of all other parameters measurable. The high % of lymphocytes, again, in and by itself, has little impact on establishment of a diagnosis. Labs are of little value absent good history, physical exam and a thoughtful knowledgeable doctor. ...Read more
