Blood test report: homocysteine level high/ blood platelets low/ bilirubin high. What could be wrong?
Big picture please: As a lab doctor, this means nothing in isolation. I appreciate your caring & this is no familiar pattern. Is the person clinically healthy? How off are the values? Vegetarians and junk-fooders are equally at risk for high homocysteine as are folks with genetic disease. Bilirubin -- gilbert's? Platelets -- gin and tonic? This isn't something to discuss in a 400-character text thx 4 understanding. ...Read more

Recent blood test shows low indirect bilirubin (.08)+increased blood volume (99.7)+increased hematocrit (47.2)+high WBC (14,200). Huh?
Uncertain.: The WBC is definitely high, but the HCT and MCV are borderline, and thus of uncertain significance. If truly elevated, the HCT could point to a primary or secondary polycythemia, an increase in the number of red blood cells. But this could also reflect mild dehydration, and given the borderline degree could be nothing. The high WBC is real. If you have no symptoms I would just repeat in 1mo. ...Read more
No: Tsh or thyroid stimulating hormone is only good for assessing thyroid function (either good, overactive or underactive). With that said, during that same blood draw, your blood could potentially be checked for testosterone to determine how much you have. This is best done in the morning. Remember that we really should treat the person (and symptoms), not just a number. Make sure benefit > risk. ...Read more

Sounds good.: Although it is impossible to definitively analyze lab results without knowing the patient and the results of all the rest of the lab tests, the portion that you have summarized here sound normal. You should get the opinion of the doctor who did the tests for a more definitive analysis, particularly if you're still having problems. Good luck. ...Read more

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.

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) ...Read more

Talk with your physician about this and what he/she thinks is actually going on. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
