I got my CBC done.I have low hb, low total count, lowpvc, low mcv, low mch, low mchc, high rdw.What does it mean? Other parameters wbcand platelets normal.
Depends.: Mch is the hemoglobin amount in a single red cell. Mchc is the concentration of hemoglobin in a single red cell, low MCH but high MCHC says the red cell is small, but has lots of hemoglobin packed inside it. Mch and MCHC or only used to determine the cause of anemia. By themselves, without anemia, there may not be any meaning to this. These changes can occur with hemolytic anemia. ...Read more
Can you explain results of CBC test shows high wbc, low hematocrit, low mcv, low mch, high platelet count, low lymphocytes and monocytes - what does it mean?
Iron deficiency?: I'm a lab specialist. Labs mean nothing apart from a history and physical exam, and labs aren't simply "low" or "high" -- HOW low / high is key. You owe it to yourself to get with your physician. If this is iron deficiency (which I suspect, rule out thalassemia), your physician has a duty to find out whether, and WHY -- it means serious treatable illness until proved otherwise. Stay proactive. ...Read more
What does it mean when you have a high rdw, normal RBC , low hemoglobin, low hematocrit, low mcv, &mch and low mchc?
My CBC test shows high wbc, low hematocrit, low mcv, low mch, high platelet count, low lymphocytes and monocytes, can you explain this to me?
I have nausea, lightedness and body weakness.
CBC came back with
Discuss it: You didn't give the values, but if they're not way out-of-range, I'd check you for thalassemia minor. If you have it, it's worth knowing as marrying another person with it can be a disaster for your children. I can't explain the high platelets, though the common cause is coexisting iron deficiency which can complicate this stuff. Pure iron deficiency might show low RBC instead. ...Read more
I suffer from pain in my toes + knees(+reddening). My blood test show low Eosinophil, low Hematocrit, Low MCV, low MCH; high Sed rate,normal VitD?
More than 1 problem: Your toe and knee are probably unrelated to your anemia, since if this was rheumatoid arthritis sufficient to lower the MCV and Hct, it would be more severe clincally. The sed rate points to an inflammatory arthritis only if it is quite high. You need your iron status evaluated and probably a rheumatology consult on your knees. No one here can tell you more. Stay proactive & good luck. ...Read more
What does it signify if I have low hemoglobin 10.3 but normal hematocrit 35.4? MCV, MCH, MCHC are low levels. Iron low level, high TIBC and UIBC.
Iron deficient: Work with your physician to identify the cause ...Read more

Slightly low WBC, low platelets, low neutrophils ,no baso's. Elevated lymph's and mono's. Does that mean bone sarcoidosis is back and active?
Give us the numbers: Medicine is quantitative....actual numbers are essential to make any diagnosis. Slight changes mean very little. They can be misleading at best. So send us the exact numbers of your blood counts, then we can help you to interpret their meaning. Also tell us more about the past history of Sarcoidosis that you have mentioned ...Read more
Eat a healthy diet: What is your hemoglobin level? If hemoglobin is normal and ferritin is normal, there may not be anything to worry about. Eat a healthy diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils, and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise 30 minute/day for about 5 days/wk. ...Read more
Low WBC, low abs neurophils, and low anion gap w/o K. All other results of CMP and CBC w/diff. normal. Cause for concern?
Why tested?: 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 values rather than your interpretation of low and high. It would be better to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests as s/he knows more about your health. 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. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
Low Alkaline Phosphatase. Low Neut percentage. Low MCHC. High Lymphs percentage. Does it indicates any abnormalities? THANK YOU DRS.
It depends: One cannot look just at lynphocyte and neutrophil percentages. It must be interpreted in the context of the total white blood cell count. ...Read more
Cbc: low WBC (3.39), low neutrophils (36%), high lymphs (57%). Also something called poikilocytosis and ovalocytes in blood. Is this concerning?
Probably not: Wbc is low and absolute neuts about 1000 (3.39 x 36%). If no infection or mouth sores i would not be too excited. Repeat labs. Could just be a passing viral infection or it could just be you. African americans and those of northern european ancestry often run a lowish wbc. Poik and oval is just some variation in rbc shape. ...Read more
