Mchc Blood Test
See below: This may indicate a problem such as iron deficiency. The other values would be useful.
No: The reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthy folks fall outside. And perhaps there was a small calibration problem with the automated cell counter.
Big picture: Small red cells with too little hemoglobin usually mean iron deficiency which should prompt a search for bleeding. There are some other possible causes.
What does a high MCH and a high MCHC mean on a blood test. My Folic Acid was also high. Thank you! ?
Need the numbers: 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 been helpful to have the actual numbers. High MCH and MCHC in themselves are not a cause for concern. High folic acid is okay too.
I am 25 yrs old. I had my blood test and got report low calcium and high in mchc; mch; mcv. What these terms mean?
Not enough info.: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with his patient. The ordering doctor may or may not consider the results a problem, depending on the patient's symptoms and her past medical conditions.
Dear Doctor. I recently got my blood test and the result shows high MCHC level. What could be the cause? Result is attached.
Question significanc: MCHC is rarely of use as a test as long as you are not anemic (have a normal Hemoglobin (Hb) level). So tell us about your Hb. If it is >12 Gms, you can forget about your MCHC, as it has no significance unless you are Anemic (Hb <12 Gms)
Hb, lekosit, trombosit, eritrosit, mcv, mch, mchc all normal. Only hematokrit n RDW low. What's that mean from blood test 2 years old child?
Normal: Don't worry, so long the child is healthy otherwise
Maybe: Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside. However, an anemia (low Hgb) is ALWAYS worth investigating. Your physician will guide you here. Don't be concerned with a slightly low absolute monocyte count.
I had a blood test I see mono% 9.5 high, eos% 9.3 high, mchc 32.3 low, RDW 11.4 low. What should I do. Should I worry. Thanks.
High eos...: ...Usually raise suspicion of allergy or parasite infection; others are nonspecific. A better question would be, why was the test done in the first place?See 1 more doctor answer
I got a blood test and my HCT is. 344 (range. 33 - 0.45) and MCHC (g/L) is 340 (range 300 -350). Does this mean I'm bordering on anaemic? I'm pregnant
Hemoglobin: The results you provided are all normal and do not provide information about anemia. If your hemoglobin is above 12 g/dL or 120 g/L you are okay.
What's the issue when blood test is: hemoglobin:13.4g/dl-mcv 75fl-mch 25.2pg-mchc 33.4g/dl-iron 88mcg/dl.& note saying:slight microcytosis-anisocytosi?
All these: Signs point to iron deficiency, but the HGB is not low. Could be thalasemia trait.
My blood test shows that.... Thet Hgb, PCV normal and RBCs Count high and MCV, MCH and MCHC low and RDW-CV high. .......what is that means?
Thalassemia minor?: With normal packed cell volume, high red cell count, low MCV, I'd consider you may have thalassemia minor. This is good to know because if you marry someone else who has this, the children may have the very serious thalassemia major. Talk with your physician about this and what he/she thinks is actually going on.
These came up abnormal in blood test, could someone help? MPV 6.3fl %NEUT 42% %LYMPH 47% %GRA 43.6% MCHC 294 g/l Direct bilirubin 5.48 umol/L
Numbers are numbers: The rest of the story is needed, such as WHY did a person go to the doctor, and WHY were the blood tests done? Numbers often have no meaning without hearing the rest of the story. One's regular doctor, who knows what the person's symptoms were, why a blood test was ordered, and who has examined the patient, can be helpful here. Otherwise, these numbers are just numbers.
I've blood test indicate high ESR 70-110, high mchc 36.2, low RDW 30.8, high mpv 12.3, low pct 32% w/ other test normal. Am I susceptible to hiv?
Everybody...: ...Is "susceptible" to HIV - as in, able to catch it if exposed. If the question is "do I have hiv, " only an HIV test can answer that with any degree of reliability, and the tests you mention do not help with that question one way or another.
