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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
