Having esophagus/stomach issues for2 years. I'm wondering if having a consistently low MPV blood test and recently high red cell count is significant?

It depends/unlikely,: It's unlikely that this poses a problem based on the blood results. If your red cell count was low, not high, that could be a reason to suspect something, like a bleeding GI/stomach ulcer. The MPV, assuming it means mean platelet volume doesn't have any obvious connection to this and if the platelet number is normal, it's likely no problem. Finally the GI issues themselves may be unrelated.

I had a pre employment blood test and had high RDW and low mpv, is this something to worry about?

I had a pre employment blood test and had high RDW and low mpv, is this something to worry about?

No not at all: If your CBC is normal, these two values have little significance. I would ignore them but make sure your hb, WBC and platelet counts are normal.

I had a blood test done a while ago and I had a normal platelet count but a low mpv (6.3) and the only symptom I have is foamy urine. What could this?

I had a blood test done a while ago and I had a normal platelet count but a low mpv (6.3) and the only symptom I have is foamy urine. What could this?

Test results: I doubt there is a connection between low platelet volume and your foamy urine. Did they check your urine itself? Or check your kidney function? Do you feel well? Any test can give falsely abnormal results, or results that are not in the normal range, but it doesn't really matter as long as you feel well. If you are well, don't worry. If worried, as to repeat the test, check the urine and kidneys.

My blood test results showed my MPV @ 7.4 but all other results are within normal range. Should I be concerned?

My blood test results showed my MPV @ 7.4 but all other results are within normal range. Should I be concerned?

Not likely: Your mean platelet volume is slightly low but as long as it hasn't been dropping or your platelet count has not been dropping even if it is still in the normal range there should be nothing to worry about.

What does it mean blood test results WBC 12.1/LYMPHOCYTES 3.8/GRANULOCYTES 7.8/ RDW 14.0/PLATELETS 468/MPV 7.3/MCV 76.0/MCH 25.4?

What does it mean blood test results WBC 12.1/LYMPHOCYTES 3.8/GRANULOCYTES 7.8/ RDW 14.0/PLATELETS 468/MPV 7.3/MCV 76.0/MCH 25.4?

Why ordered: WBC may be elevated. It depends on the range. You should discuss the results of your lab tests with the medical provider who ordered the test in the context of your particular medical conditions. Nine is a bit young to be on Health Tap.

Mpv: MPV (mean Platelet Volume) this is the average volume of the platelet. If the mean volume is little high, it means that there are some large platelets in the blood which is normal and usually during the rapid production from the bone marrow

Blood test results showing low mchc?

Low iron: If the MCHC level is below 28%, this is considered too low. The MCHC level can be too low because of blood loss over time, or too little iron in the body.

My blood test results show low zinc is this dangerous?

Supplement: It is important to keep all of your nutrient and vitamin / mineral levels within the rda for intake and to supplement as needed if blood work shows a deficiency. Zinc is involved in metabolism, skin health, eye sight, etc. So this is something you need to address.

My husband just got blood test results back and he is a tiny bit low in protein something to do with albumin what can he do to increase it to what it?

FU with doctor: A low Albumin is not specific. It could be related to a wide range of illnesses or it could be transient and meaningless. Albumin is produced in the liver and can be low in cases of malnutrition, liver disease, kidney disease and other. Your best option to follow up with his physician. He has the whole picture. All the best!

I've got a low white cell count 2.5 can this be the cause of me feeling totally drained all the time? Thank you in advance (second blood test results)

I've got a low white cell count 2.5 can this be the cause of me feeling totally drained all the time? Thank you in advance (second blood test results)

Maybe: The keys are (1) your differential count; are absolute lymphocytes or absolute neutrohils very low? (2) do you have lupus or some other serious medical problems? I'm thinking of lupus as it can lower WBC's, make you feel horrible with nobody able to find why, and could account for your past pregnancy loss. Just my contribution. Best wishes. Stay proactive.

I've got COPD my co2 blood test results came back low, what does this mean?

I've got COPD my co2 blood test results came back low, what does this mean?

Carbon dioxide...: In copd, if you are unable to effectively breathe, your carbon dioxide level would be high. If your oxygen level is low, one compensation is to increase your ventilation, if possible, resulting in low carbon dioxide levels but higher oxygen levels. This usually is what happens earlier in the disease process.

What to do if I have COPD my co2 blood test results came back low, what does this mean?

Low CO2...: COPD is a chronic lung disease. If your carbon dioxide level is low, it means you are breathing deeper and/or faster and you are "blowing off" your carbon dioxide. It is often a sign that you are working harder to breathe. If your oxygen level is normal, it means you are able to get in enough oxygen. If your oxygen level is low, supplemental oxygen is prescribed.

What can I do if my blood test results came back showing low platelets?

What can I do if my blood test results came back showing low platelets?

How low?: Do you have any bleeding in the skin, mouth or elsewhere? If your count was borderline low, it may be part of the normal spectrum. The best thing to do is to discuss the results with your doctor, to if it needs further investigation.

I just got blood test results. I have a high red cell count 5.53. I also have low MCV and MCH, 79.2 and 29.7 respectively. What does it mean?

I just got blood test results. I have a high red cell count 5.53. I also have low MCV and MCH, 79.2 and 29.7 respectively. What does it mean?

Any symptoms?: How much is your hemoglobin? If is it between 12-15 gm/dL, there is no cause of concern. You parameters are okay. 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, if you have sex.

My blood test results show that my total white blood count is low, 2.7 10*9/l and lymphocyte count also low, 0.6 10*9/l, should I be concerned?

Yes: You total WBC count is low. Why did you have the test done? All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and your doctor who ordered the test is in the best position to do that.

Blood test results-what do I need to do next? Low omega 3 / high homocyteine 14 / acth is too high.

Blood test results-what do I need to do next? Low omega 3 / high homocyteine 14 / acth is too high.

Consider a consult: Physicians debate the value of screening homocysteines, but I am puzzled as to why you have had your omega 3 and acth levels checked. If your physician cannot explain the ongoing workup, it may be time to get a second opinion about the direction in which these studies are going.
