What causes high lym% low mpv and rdw.

What causes high lym% low mpv and rdw.

Please elaborate: Can you send your entire blood count and something about your health? This would be very helpful.

In a one year old what would a "low" mpv (6.2) and a "high" PLT (507) indicate?

In a one year old what would a "low" mpv (6.2) and a "high" PLT (507) indicate?

LowMPV: A low mpv and a high PLT may indicate recovery from an acute short term infection, a serious blood loss, or lack of vitamin B12 or foliate.

I have a low MPV of 7.1 and a high WBC of 11.4. What does it mean?

I have a low MPV of 7.1 and a high WBC of 11.4. What does it mean?

Depends!: The low MPV does not usually have any significant importance. I tend to ignore it most of the time. The slightly elevated WBC can be due to many things such as infection, inflammation, medications, stress, autoimmune disorders, other disorders and in rare occasions blood disorders such as leukemia. It has to be put in the context of history, examination and other laboratory values.

What can cause a high IgM 392 mg/dl, low mpv 7.1 fl, high mchc 37.2 g/dl, and high rdw14.3?

Can't tell: Isolated labs are not how doctors make diagnoses. History is the most important part of a medical evaluation. Why were the labs performed? The mpv is a measure of average platelet size; it is only meaningful if platelets are decreased. Mildly elevated igm levels can indicate infection or immune dysregulation. The RDW and MCHC are red blood cell properties. Many healthy people have these results.

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.

What does a low MPV signify if the platelet count is normal?

What does a low MPV signify if the platelet count is normal?

No problem: The MPV means the size of the platelets. Size of platelets can be hereditary. Occasional syndromes have low MPV and larger MPV can be associated with newer younger platelets. Normal platelet counts in a healthy person with no bleeding issues is fine even if the MPV is small.

Hi. I am a bit freaked out. I have a high MCH, low MPV and low RBC. I am tired all the time. What is wrong with me?

Need more info: 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 results not high and low. What is your hemoglobin? For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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.

What does it mean if blood tests GR is 53.7 low, MO# 0.3 low, MCHC 32.1 low, Plt 122. low, MPV 7.7 low?

I'm not concerned: These are all just very slightly out of the reference ranges, present no health hazard, warn of nothing, and if you're feeling healthy, go home thankful. Thanks for clarifying.

What can a low mpv of 5.8 (range 7.0-10.4) mean 3 weels after giving birth. Also high platelets.

What can a low mpv of 5.8 (range 7.0-10.4) mean 3 weels after giving birth. Also high platelets.

More information nee: Low mpv--means the the patient has smaller platelets. This may be associated with some family history of smaller platelets or with some syndromes. High platelets can be associated with iron deficiency or other vitamin deficiencies. Should be discussed with your doctor.

High platelets low mpv high absolute lymphs? Do these together show signs of leukemia and or lymphoma?

High platelets low mpv high absolute lymphs? Do these together show signs of leukemia and or lymphoma?

Incomplete info: 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, what you have provided is not sufficient information to render a meaningful opinion. How high is the lymphocyte count? What is the morphology? Are there any enlarged lymph glands? It would be prudent to consult your doctor.

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.

Low mpv (9.1), low neutrophil (34), high lymphocyte (48), high monocyte (9), high eosinophil (9). 17 yrs old li fraumeni female. Should I worry?

Low mpv (9.1), low neutrophil (34), high lymphocyte (48), high monocyte (9), high eosinophil (9). 17 yrs old li fraumeni female. Should I worry?

No: I often wish labs would not even report the percentages. Only the absolute values matter. The fact that you have li fraumeni means you must educate yourself about how to spot cancers early. This will greatly enhance your chances for a long, happy life. The only tip-off that a blood count will give is if there are abnormal cells circulating.

Small platelets: MPV stands for Mean Platelet Volume and is a measure of the size of the platelets in your blood. Platelets are cellular elements that help initiate blood clotting. If your platelet count is low (< 100, 000 per microliter) then the time it takes to stop bleeding increases. The MPV can be a clue as to why someone has a low platelet count, but on its own it doesn't mean much.

What does a low MPV 8.5 (9.00-13.00fl) mean with high platelets of 447 (150-410)? Slightly raised WBC and neutrophils as well. Hgb is 13.4

Reduced MPV: A hematologist should provide the answer. The best I found as far MPV is as Follows, the rest is normal Mean platelet volume (MPV) is a machine-calculated measurement of the average size of platelets found in blood and is typically included in blood tests as part of the CBC. Since the average platelet size is larger when the body is producing increased numbers of platelets, the MPV test results can be used to make inferences about platelet production in bone marrow or platelet destruction problems. MPV is higher when there is destruction of platelets. This may be seen in inflammatory bowel disease, immune thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), myeloproliferative diseases and Bernard-Soulier syndrome. It may also be related to pre-eclampsia, and recovery from, transient hypoplasia. Abnormally low MPV values correlate with thrombocytopenia when it is due to impaired production as in aplastic anemia. In addition, low MPV, can correlate with abnormally small platelet size, sometimes a symptom of a spectrum referred to as Wiskott-Aldrich Syndrome, caused by a genetic mutation of the WAS gene. A typical range of platelet volumes is 9.7–12.8 fL (femtolitre), equivalent to spheres 2.65 to 2.9 µm in diameter. Normal range is given as 7.5-11.5 fL
