Normal Blood Hematocrit Level
Of red blood cell number. Classically this was the "packed cell volume." blood was placed in a microtube and spun in a centrifuge. The rbcs settle to the bottom and one measures the height in the tube and reported as a percentage. Now determined by an automated machine. A typical hct is about 3 ...Read more
100mg/dL or less: Physicians measure patient's fasting blood glucose. This is the blood sugar taken when the patient hasn't had food or drink for at least 8 hours. "normal" is considered to be 100mg/dl or less. There is a little leeway before a level is high enough to raise concern and necessitate intervention though. A non-fasting blood sugar - or random should be less than 150... Especially 2 hours after you eat. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Ferritin, hematocrit, hglobin normal. Hematocrit 44. Will iron increase it? Serum iron low. Rbc count normal and above.
Why do you ask?: This is almost certainly the right hematocrit for your body. No "pop" remedy is going to increase it; if you are seeking to raise it artificially for an athletic competition, you'll have to ask elsewhere. Loading up on iron is likely to make you sick, both acutely (upset stomach) and long-term (iron-overload still kills plenty of men). ...Read more

Rbc:5.9, mpv :13.5(high),hgb &hct: normal,plt normal, m.c.v and m.c.h slightly low,Rdw:13.3% ,m.c.h.c: normal,normal wbc, thal minor? Is my Rbc high?
Microcytosis=MCV<80: The good news is that you have normal Hgb and Hct so are not anemic at this time. When mcv and mch are low, it suggests that to maintain a normal Hct and Hbg, your body has compensated by making more rbc (high rbc) that are slightly smaller (low mcv and mch). Most common cause would be mild iron deficiency or thalassemia, but increased rbc can also be related to elevation. ...Read more
Serum iron low, transferin saturation 12%. Ferritin 130 and transferrin normal. Hemocrit normal. Hemoglobin 14 RBC normal. Can this cause symptoms or?
Normal hemoglobin, lower than normal MCH and MCHC). Serum ferritin in low normal range(40). What could it mean?
Stop worrying: You may have a very mild thalassemia variant. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end. Ask your physician whether you have "thal minor" -- simply so that you'll know in case you are thinking of marrying someone else with it. ...Read more

Low C3 level, low hct, little low red blood count, everything else is normal(c4, iga, igb, igm, esr, ssa, ssb, ana, urinalysis) what could this be?
Why the tests?: You need to give some history on yourself since no lab test can truly diagnose a disease. Anemia appears to be the most important issue and with the low c3 , you may possibly have an autoimmune type of hemolytic anemia. However this is an open issue and you should consult a hematologist to do further testing. ...Read more
Yes: By definition. Please get with a competent, no-nonsense physician and find the cause. I hope no one is forcing you to be a non-supplementing vegetarian. Stomach ulcer, stomach or colon cancer, hookworm, heavy monthly loss, and many others can cause iron deficiency, and there are a variety of other causes as well. ...Read more
Testosterone: Testosterone causes some proliferation of the red cell precursors at puberty. I suspect this is the result of natural selection as early humans were hunter-gatherers. High hemoglobin improves aerobic fitness (ask a sports cheater), and allows faster running. Survival requires you run faster than the next guy when you're both being chased by a bear. ...Read more
My recent blood test showed , ESR and RDW levels slightly high, and hematocrit level decreased slightly. Should i be worried?
Lab data: Difficult to comment on lab results without clinical correlation, but you are slightly anemic and if this is iron deficient anemia it may be because of bleeding during your period and may require iron supplementation. The increased ESR and CRP are probably of no consequence. Get an answer to why your hemoglobin is low. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I was wondering how i could have a low red blood count (rbc) but a normal hemoglobin and hematocrit?
No!: They all go together unless you have very small sized red cells in which case you can be anemic but the red blood cell count may still be normal... As in a conditiona called thalasemia. ...Read more
