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
Context: As a pathologist, i spend a lot of time telling other folks, "don't focus on the numbers, focus on the person." a low absolute monocyte count seldom means anything. A low percentage of monocytes may reflect a transient increase in other cells due to the slight stresses of minor illness or everyday life. If your physician is not concerned, you should not be either. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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

Neutrophils 77 slightly out of range but absolute neutrophils normal. Why elevated neutrophil level on the one blood test?
Totally meaningless: If the absolute values are in reference range, ignore it totally. I wish labs wouldn't even report these percentages. And reference ranges themselves are set up so that several percent of healthy people fall outside. A short swim in cold water can triple your neutrophil count. Don't treat labs -- look at people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

TheTruthOnAbsolute : Percentages are relative numbers. You could have one billion neutrophils (elevated) but only 10% of total White Cells (low, %, based on normal ranges), but 10% of one billion is sky high. We are always looking at relative numbers and absolute numbers. Relative numbers like % can be manipulated in various ways, good and bad, but absolute numbers are the nitty-gritty. ...Read more
Frequent infections (fortnightly fever), high WBC(16.2), normal lymphocytes(2.3), high granulocytes(13.100), high haemoglobin(17.30), normal platelets?
Find the cause of in: You need to have your doctor check you in order to find the cause of Infections. It is not normal to have infections so frequently as you have indicated. In the meantime, get adequate sleep/rest at night and eat healthy foods(more of fruits and veggies and less meats) and find sometime to exercise regularly.

Not enough info: A blood count is only meaningful in the context of what is happening in the way of symptoms and signs of medical problems. It can be affected by medicines, infections (both vial and bacterial) and a host of other issues. The isolated information that you provided isn't alarmiing and really isn't meaningful all by itself. ...Read more
Impossible: About a thousand different possibilities. You must provide us some context to this question. The better option, however, is to demand an explanation of your results from the physician who ordered the test. ...Read more
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
Elevated total WBC count (11,000) with elevated total neutrophils, lymphocytes and eosinophils. But CRP & SED rate are NORMAL. What causes this?
Any symptoms?: Why was the test done? Do you have any symptoms?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, your WBC is at the high end of normal, but it may be your normal. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
