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 (folic acid) 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

Lupus/150mg azathioprine..low rbc..WBC 3.4 .. mcv high(101)...high mch(34)..high rdw (16) concern or is side effect of medicine? My vit b is normal.

Suspect medication: I would first suspect medication. As you know we can find some of the same findings in people with lupus. It depends what your physician has noted before youyou started azathioprine your serial blood studies have shown ...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 & MCH for few years. 2 yrs of low rbc. New CBC has folate (folic acid) & calc. Defic., low bun. 2 mnths ago found soft clavicle lymph "mass". Esophag spsm?

High MCV & MCH for few years. 2 yrs of low rbc. New CBC has folate (folic acid) & 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 (folic acid) deficiency would go together. Folate (folic acid) supplements would be indicated. Cannot relate to esophageal issues. ...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?

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

5 year old has persistent normocytic anemia. High WBC, platelets, low RBC and hemoglobin. Normal MCV, MCH, ferritin and reticulocyte. What's the cause?

Need more tests,,,: This is hard to determine as this is the case of a child. Other tests like a peripheral blood smear might help to find the cause. It would be best to see the doctor, preferably a pediatrician, for more tests and an exam. Best of luck. ...Read more

High MCV and MCH for a few years. 2 yrs of low rbc. Recent CBC now has folate (folic acid) & 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 (folic acid) (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

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
