Normal Rbc In Urine
Recently I had a sharp pain right side of my back. Little up. Urine and abdominal scan is normal except rbc in urine test is 8-10. even now the pain continuous when I sit in somewhere little longer. I don't know what to do?
Need more evaluation: There is not enough information in your note to be able to give you a good answer. It would be nice to know what type of scan you had - CT, ultrasound? A small stone could easily be overlooked. See a urologist for additional evaluation for a source of pain. Don't overlook a GYN exam as well. ...Read more

Depends: Hemoglobin is the oxygen-carrying portion in the red blood cells; hematocrit is the proportion of the blood that consists of packed red blood cells, expressed as a percentage by volume. A normal hemoglobin is @ 13 and a normal hematocrit is @ 40 – although there is a range based on age, gender and medical conditions. A low hemoglobin and hematocrit is called anemia. ...Read more

What does having low HB, HCT, MCV, MCH, MCHC & high RDW but normal RBC & ferritin mean? HB 10 (11.2-14.1) RBC 4.15 (3.85-5.02) Ferritin 5.7 (4.6-204)
Mcv 69, MCH 22.6, mchc 32.7 (low), high RDW 16.1. Hg/hct normal. Rbc 6.45 (high). Numbers have declined over past 7 months. Iron norm. What is cause?
Need evaluation: All lab results need to be evaluated in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that. It would also help to have the actual results of iron studies. Iron deficiency is a common cause of microcytic hypochromia. Mild thalassemia being another one. If your results are improving, recovery from iron deficiency is a likely explanation. ...Read more
Dr said lab results are normal. RBC 5.24 is higher than range &urinalysis showed CaOx 1 + and clarity: sl cloudy higher than range. What does it mean?
Drink more water:
What is your hemoglobin level? If that is normal, do not be concerned about RBC count. Calcium oxalate crystal in urine warrants that you drink more water. See the suggestion below:
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. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

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,

Why do I get altitude illness if I'm in very good shape? I had blood test and am not anemic with a normal RBC count.
Don't tough it: Altitude sickness is poorly understood but people's suceptibility to it has little or nothing to do with overall physical conditioning. It's more dangerous than people think. Take your time going to altiltude. ...Read more
If you have normal RBC and Hemoglobin does that definitely mean that your oxygen supply is enough At The Moment even though you have Iron deficiency?
Usually not related: If a person has a normal amount of hemoglobin, regardless of how many red blood cells he has, the amount of oxygen supplied to the various parts of his body is related to other factors (not directly related to his normal amount of hemoglobin). Other factors include the amount of oxygen in the air, the quality of oxygen transfer in his lungs, the amount of blood pumped per heart contraction, etc... ...Read more
My 17 yearold has WBC 2.5, low segs, high lymph, low mvc, low mch. Normal RBC and hemo and hcrt. Been referred to hemo/onc specialist. Why?
For answers: Your child has some abnormalities in his blood work that your child's doctor can't explain. A hematologist/oncologist is a specialist in blood diseases and is better suited to identify why these abnormalities exist. I would not let it worry you; just go and see what the specialist has to say. ...Read more
My mom has low total WBC for 10 years. It's always around 3. though her absolutes counts of each type are normal. Rbc and platelets normal. Cause?
Likely no problem,,: The count may be low, but not very low and the absolute counts are normal. The absolute counts are more important as this means there's no problem with WBC production. It's also good that it's low as it likely means there's no infection or other illness present. If you're still concerned you can discuss this with your doctor, but it's highly unlikely there's anything. Best of luck. ...Read more
(28 male) 10.9 hemoglobin, 34.2 hematocrit, & 25.1 MCH with normal rbc, mcv, & rdw. No change in the hemoglobin/hematocrit in 2 months? Any concerns?
Low-ish, why?: Assuming you are otherwise healthy, the numbers you provided suggest you are a little anemic. Sometimes this is influenced by diet (=bad), and can be improved with more protein and dark leafy greens (sorry, but clean your plate!), more effectively than a vitamin. Would talk to your dr who can help decide if it is "normal for you, " or indicating something needing further investigation. ...Read more

Node on the back of my neck that enlarges at night and gets smaller. CBC showed high normal RBC, hematoctrits, hemoglobin. Noticed bruises on arm leg?
Keep an eye on it:
Benign enlargement of neck nodes is not uncommon. Unless it is growing in size and becomes larger than 1 Cm, I would ask you to ignore it. Do not check it daily as your own fingers pressing and poking on it will cause trauma and make the lymph node larger. So check it once every 1 or 2 weeks and take note of size.
Bruises are of no consequence unless your platelet count is 150k) ...Read more
What causes normocytic anemia if ferritin and reticulocytes are normal. RBC is low and WBC and platelets are elevated? Thanks!
Is WBC count 13.500 normal for a 6 year old with myelocytes and activated lymphocytes. High platelets and normal RBC s?
More info needed: More specifics about the CBC are needed. 13, 500 may be a normal white count in a six year old. Finding an occasional myelocyte is not a problem. Activated or stimulated lymphs usually are associated with a viral process. Increased platelets --depending on how high they are could represent an inflammatory process or iron deficiency or other disorder. Discuss with your doctor. ...Read more

How do you FEEL?: If this is really fast so that it takes your breath away and shows as perhaps paroxysmal atrial tachycardia on Holter monitor, your cardiologist can recommend ways to manage that are probably easy. If your heart's just a little fast but seems to be doing a good job pumping blood and the beat's regular, what's the worry? It's just a number. Think about upping your aerobic fitness activities.
