Low Hemoglobin Internal Bleeding
Low platelet, random bruising, fluctuation of low normal-low wbc, non anemic, no bleeding issues, random lightheadedness?
Low platelets: Low platelets can either be caused by consumption or inability to produce them. The most common cause is itp where antibodies are made that recognize your platelets. Treatment is available and most patient recover fully. Production problems involve your bone marrow. Sometimes viruses can temporarily suppress your marrow. More serious causes include leukemia (usually are also anemic and low wbc). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Also known as an internal hemorrhage, internal bleeding refers to bleeding that occurs inside the body that is not seen from the outside. This happens when there is damage to an artery or vein from trauma, an injury to the spleen, a ruptured aneurysm, or erosion into an artery or vein from cancer or gastric ulcer. Internal bleeding is a medical emergency ...Read more
Low HCT, (decreased 10 points in 4 days) normal RDW, high MCH, low platelets. Does this indicate bleeding?
Last blood test:high red blood cells( 5.8) high hemoglobin (17.3) high hematocrit 52% and high bilirubin 2.1. What's wrong with me? Polycythemia vera?
Hey buddy!: You've asked this question repeatedly. Being a smart teen with an interest in science, you're understandably concerned. At your age, and with normal cbc's as a kid (were they normal?) i'd be more concerned about sleep apnea -- that will ruin your life -- or that someone is giving you Anabolic steroids without your knowing it, or an erythropoietin-producing tumor somewhere. ...Read more
Macrocytic anemia: The most common causes of macrocytic anemia are B12 (ruled out for you) and folate (folic acid) deficiencies. Folate (folic acid) deficiency can be caused by diet (very rare - folate (folic acid) is everywhere), celiac disease, alcoholism, or hemolysis (autoimmune process, for example). Rarer causes include aplastic anemia and myelodysplastic syndrome (mds). If not clear to your doc, may need to see hematologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hemoglobin 106 low hematocrit, MCV, MCH low and RDW 18.4. Ferritin 7. Is the high RDW a concern. last b12 was 137?
Abnormal blood results.high RBC 5.2, high hemoglobin 16.7, high hematocrit 51.7, high monocytes 12.8 and basphils 11?
What can this mean.
5 year old has persistent normocytic anemia. High WBC, platelets, low RBC and hemoglobin. Normal MCV, MCH, ferritin and reticulocyte. What's the cause?
Recent labs showed high platelets high iron high tibc low normal ferritin level of 12 is this iron deficiency ?
Likely: The best test for iron deficiency anemia (ida) is ferritin. Sometimes when there is inflammation (an possible associated anemia of chronic disease/inflammation, the ferritin may increase as an acute phase reactant). The "gold standard" for diagnosis is a bone marrow biopsy, but rarely needed. High platelets are also associated with ida. Treatment should improve platelets and ferritin. ...Read more
What do low levels of hemoglobin, hematocrit & red blood cell coupled with high level of bilirubin indicate?
Anemia hyperbilirubi: Anemia and hyperbilirubinemia in a 50 yr old which is acute indicate one of two things, either hemolysis from unknown cause or underlying disease such as chronic lymphocytic leukaemia, lymphoma, viruses hiv, bacterial pneumonias, connective tissue disease e.g. Systemic lupus erythematosis. Herefitary anemias thalasemias, sickle cell anemia. Liver disease, associated with anemia due to other dise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cbc done - hgb, hct low(10.6/33.3). The mcv, MCH and MCH were borderline low. The RDW high. Donated blood 1 month previous with 12.9 hgb. ? Diagnosis
Not enough data: Most cbc's only tell us what numerically is wrong. The only sure way to tell a CBC is abnormal is to look at the peripheral smear. Your indices indicate that you may be iron deficient, however that requires a thorough assessment for blood loss from the gi, gu and respiratory tract. If you donate blood, you can exacerbate the iron deficiency. ...Read more
Recent blood work. Wbc, Rbc, hgb, hct, mcv normal. Low mchc. High Rbw. What does this point to? Had iron def anemia in past.
You can look these: all up, e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mean_corpuscular_hemoglobin_concentration, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_blood_cell_distribution_width, etc. If the MCV is ?er Nl, combined with ?ed MCHC these could be c/w some mild Fe deficiency currently. If Reticulocyte count is elevated, this would be c/w the?ed RDW due to an ?ed mix of younger, immature plus older cells. These values just clues. ...Read more

Need more info: Do you have a chronic illness? 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, the limited data you provided suggests anemia of chronic illness. It would be prudent to consult the doctor who ordered the tests. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

No, : No, this does not necessarily indicate that your bone marrow is not producing enough red blood cells. You have had a complete workup it sounds like. You are slightly anemic. You have a normal reticulocyte count. To put your mind at rest, you can discuss your findings with a hematologist, who may have recommendations, but your numbers are not concerning. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

5 year old with normocytic anemia. Normal reticulocyte and ferritin. High WBC and platelets. Low hemoglobin. What could be the cause?
Sketchy picture: how is your child doing apart from those figures? can be just common iron deficiency anemia, and how high are the platelets or the WBCs? also common to have some elevations with any concurrent infection. If your child is doing fine otherwise, disregard those numbers and trust your doctor, we treat patients not lab results, best wishes for yourself and your child ...Read more
