High platelet count, low hematocrit/hemoglobin means?

First...

Hypermenorrhea
Consider iron deficiency. This often produces this combination. Unless you are a woman with very heavy periods, or a vegetarian who's not supplementing or savvy about the difficult task of getting enough dietary iron, look for how you might be losing blood.

What does it mean to have low hemoglobin, hematocrit, MCH, MCHC, and high platelet count , and sedimentation rate?

Hard to say.

Blood_clot
This combination of labs doesn't make any diagnosis. The relative height of your ESR, plates and Hgb would be helpful. It may be that you have an anemia and that is driving up your platelet count and your ESR is outside your labs "normal," but not really abnormal.

Dr. Michael Engel answered:

Baby has iron deficiency anemia and has fever for 3 days now. lab results show normal platelet count, low hemoglobin, high wbc. is this an emergency?

Doesn't sound like

Anemia
it, if your child truly is 1yo. A few days of fever, due to a viral illness for example, is not uncommon. I'd give you a different answer for a 2-3mo child. If your child is staying well hydrated despite the insensible losses, he will probably be fine. If you're uncertain, go see your pediatrician. The blood counts by themselves are not that concerning, provided anemia is being treated.

D/w your doctor

Platelet
you should go to see your doctor and discuss the result of your blood work with your doctor. to answer your question will depend on how high is the high level mentioned here and how low is the low levels are here? I need to see the actual numbers to really interprete the result. there are many different things that can cause from non significant, iron deficiency to thalassemia trait etc. D/W MD.

Is it possible to have a normal hemoglobin but low MCH and MCHb and platelet count of 482 to be considered microcytic anemia?

Yes

Electrophoresis
A low mean corpuscular hemoglobin (mch) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (mchc), even in the absence of a low mean corpuscular volume (mcv) or low RBC count can be a sign of a evolving microcytic anemia. Microcytosis can be caused by iron deficiency (check ferritin level) or thallesemia (check hemoglobin electrophoresis). Hope that this helps.

My 5 year old nephew's blood report says hemoglobin-7,tacked cell volume-23%,wbc count- 11500,platelet count-179000,esr-07.Is it a Thalassemia?

Insufficient info

Cbc-wbc_count
With a hemoglobin of 7 he is not likely to have major thalassemia. There are many causes of anemia and treatment would depend on the cause. The doctor who ordered the tests should be able to advise.

Dr. Bahman Omrani answered:

Mean cell hemoglobin conc. 32.9 (31-37); Platelet count 315 (150-450); Mean platelet volume 6.8 (7.4-11). Do I have a problem with my platelets?

Unlikely

Platelet
Since the platelet count is normal, a low MPV of this degree does not mean much. Clinical correlation is recommended.

My wbc4.7,rbc4.18,hemoglobin 13.4,hematocrit39.5,mcv94.6,mch 32.0,mchc33.8,rdw14.7,platelet count 219,absolute neutrophil ct122,segs26,is this bad?

How are you feeling?

Itp
Any fever, infections? Good news: you do not have anemia. Platelet count is also normal. Total white cells number is acceptable. I believe that you made a mistake in absolute neutrophil ? The % neutrophil (seg) is 26, lower than normal. As long as you do not have fever& free from infections, you are safe. Consult with Hematologist. Do not worry. Simple problem.. can be easily handled. Thanks
