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?

That's not possible: to answer without an exam, history, and other basic elements of a medical assessment. You do have a local doctor since these tests were requested. What does your doc say about these things and why they were checked? You have lab values, but there is no detail about how you are feeling. That's the most important part. Abnormal labs in isolation are usually meaningless. Ask your doctor ?s. ...Read more

No major issue, but.: Should tell your ob, since the h&h are a little high for female, so could indicate mild dehydration--which can cause ptl / irritation. Rdw is measure of the diameters of red blood cells (rbc) to see if too high a #, suggests problem. Little low no biggie. Lactate dehydrogenase (ldh - aka: "little darn help") is a very nonspecific marker of inflammation / body activity, but is ok. ...Read more

Anemias: Low mcv,mch, and mchc can occur with iron deficiency but the rbc count would usually be low. Some hereditary anemias like Thalassemia may have higher rbc counts,though. B12 deficiency generally has a high MCV. A hematologist is best qualified to evaluate you and your findings. ...Read more

Hi, I have consistently low ferritin, high RBC and today deficient calcium. Could this be contributing to my 3 year history of hair loss?

Hi, I have consistently low ferritin, high RBC and today deficient calcium. Could this be contributing to my 3 year history of hair loss?

Yes: Insufficient iron stores as measured by ferritin levels is strongly associated with hair loss in women. It is important to measure ESR (erythrocyte sedimentation rate, or esr) when checking ferritin, as an apparent "normal" ferritin can be misleading if the ESR is high. Both are what are known as "acute phase reactants", meaning that in the presence of inflammation, they will be elevated. ...Read more

Consider Shingles: Shingles is a viral infection which follows the nerve tracts; it is usually limited to half of the body parts(does not cross the mid-line when located on the trunk.

See a hematologist: You have 2 cell lineages affected, your wbc's and your rbc's. This may indicate a disease involving the bone marrow such as polycythemia vera. See a board certified hematologist and get an evaluation. Will likely perform a bone marrow biopsy so a pathologist can exam and rule out a specific disease. Neutrapenia (low wbc's) can be associated with infections. ...Read more

My brother and i both have the thalassemia trait but we are both very healthy. We both had CBC and cmp tests. We have high RBC and rdw, low mch, low mchv, and low wbc. Is the low wbc/neutrophil a problem?

My brother and i both have the thalassemia trait but we are both very healthy. We both had CBC and cmp tests. We have high RBC and rdw, low mch, low mchv, and low wbc. Is the low wbc/neutrophil a problem?

African American?: African americans often have absolute neutrophil counts that are slightly lower than caucasians. There are many reasons for slight variations in the normal wbc, including alterations in the marginated (attached) vs demarginated (circulating) pools. Being otherwise well, i wouldn't worry about this. As physicians, we are trained to treat patients, not numbers. Cheers. ...Read more
