My CBC results showed high MCH, NE%, NE#, and LY#, while the MO% was low. I have rheumatoid and other forms of arthritis. What do these mean?
Medication effect: It is common with RA to have an anemia. It is also common for methotrexate and some of the other RA meds to cause an increase in MCH and especially MCV. MCH is mean corpuscular Hemoglobin. It is a measure of how much hemoglobin is in each cell. NE and LY refers to neutrophils and Lymphpcytes. These are types of white blood cells and can also be affected by your disease and it's treatment. ...Read more
Not much: If blood contains normal amount of hemoglobin, it will carry oxygen to tissues and CO2 to lungs normally. If red cells are a little larger than normal, number of red cells ("RBC") could be slightly low. You could have macrocytosis (large cells) without disease, but might want MD to rule out some causes of it (low B12, low thyroid, increased reticulocytes, and others) just to be sure. ...Read more

I am wondering what having a high % neutrophil count with a low % lymphocyte count means as every time I have a CBC done it shows this.
Absolute counts?: If both the absolute neutrophil count and the absolute lymphocyte count are within normal range, simply forget about it. It's you. Trust you are HIV negative. If the absolute lymphocyte count is below 1000, or the absolute neutrophil count consistently above 10000, a hematology consult might be in order. Glad you are proactive; best wishes. ...Read more
35 month old - ptt came back 42 normal range 26-39. Pt / INR normal. Cbc normal but notated platelet clumps +1, segs couple numbers high, lymph absol - little low. What could this mean.

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.

I'm 36 weeks pregnant with very low haptoglobin <6, normal liver function blood levels, and normal CBC levels. What could this mean?
When an exam of vaginal discharge yields white blood cells, does that mean a CBC would show a low WBC count?
No: The body produces and distributes white cells as needed. The white blood cells most often found in the vaginal discharge are neutrophilic polymorphonuclear leukocytes, and these are called 'blood cells' simply because they're easily obtained from blood (where they travel) but visit many sites while on their tours of duty. ...Read more
I've had a low grade fever for 4 weeks. Urinalysis is positive for bilirubin, protein and blood. Cbc shows mono%13. Any idea what all of that means?
Possibly: The best thing you can do here is to see an infectious diseases expert. You have what is called fever of undetermined origin, and this needs a detailed evaluation, not more antibiotics. Blood in urine is tuberculosis or cancer until proven otherwise. Go see an id doctor now, and good luck, . ...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
Just had a CBC with differential done. Results say "There is no component information for this result." What does this mean?
Large red bloodcells: If the MCH level is over 34, this is considered to be too high. The main reason that the MCH level would be too high is because of macrocytic anemia. Macrocytic anemia is a blood disorder in which not enough red blood cells are produced, but the ones that are present are large (thus fitting more hemoglobin). Macrocytic anemia is often caused by having too little vitamin B12 or folic acid. ...Read more
Not much: Pay attention only if the absolute granulocyte count is quite high, perhas 8000. This may indicate an infection, and it may be serious especially if there are young forms, toxic granulation or vacuolization. Most often, absoute counts that are a bit high reflect stress; twenty minutes in a cold shower can raise them to double the top of the reference range or higher. ...Read more
