Rbc count, WBC count, platelet count, RBC index, WBC differential count, hb, hct all blood test normal. Facing bleeding gum problem recently. Opinion?
Not blood's fault: If CBC normal as you say, more likely due to a change in the oral environment/ dental hygiene.

Be careful: "Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth" is usually a "pop", non-evidence-based diagnosis made by "independent medical thinkers." It's blamed for everything from rosacea to fibromyalgia, and you'll be offered a host of remedies but will never be "cured".

What does a high RDW count 15.9, high WBC count 11.3, high neutrophil count 73.0, low lymphocyte count 20.3 mean or possibly indicate?
Nothing by itself: I've had my RDW that high just from frequent blood donations. Your absolute neutrophil count is probably high -- did you have a recent infection? A recent cold shower? As a lab specialist, i'm always reminding folks that the numbers by themselves mean nothing except in the context of the history and physical exam. If you feel well and the white cells aren't described as abnormal, don't worry. ...Read more

I believe that you made a mistake in absolute neutrophil ? The % neutrophil (seg) is 26, lower than normal. As long as you do not have fever& free from infections, you are safe. Consult with hematologist. Do not worry. Simple problem.. Can be easily handled. Thanks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
