Doctor insights on:
Nucleated RBCs: Nucleated Red Blood Cells (nRBC) are premature forms of normal red blood cells. Generally, they mature in the bone marrow & are not seen in the peripheral blood, but a few occasionally is not a cause for concern. You should repeat the blood test (CBC) in a couple of weeks, and possibly several times over the next year. If the number is increasing, then further evaluation is warranted. ...Read more
What you described is well within normal limits.
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. ...Read more
Throwing old stuff away found CBC from year ago. What are NRBC everything else has normal range listed & ok. NRBC was >1 but no range listed.
N=Nucleated: Nucleated Red Blood Cells are immature forms of red blood cells. Before RBCs are released from the marrow their nucleus is removed. If NRBC are seen in the peripheral blood it is an indication that they might be released from the marrow early. 1 is normal, generally if lots are seen it will report this. I would not worry. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
I have a condition called POTS, and I just got recent CBC results back. In addition to my RBW a bit low, NRBC is. 03. Any significance?
Postural: Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome (POTS) is a form of autonomic dysfunction. There is some recent evidence suggesting a sub group of patients with POTS and low blood counts who may be more symptomatic. You could discuss your mild anemia with your health care provider and see if he/she wants to treat this. ...Read more
My 3 yr old had several tests done and the IgG was 415, auto abs NRBC is 0.00, Auto Abs mono 1.19 and auto mono% 14.9. Should I worry?
Yes: The IgG is low and points to an impaired immune system. The results of the blood test do not appear to be correct (whether it is abnormal or not is another issue). You need to discuss with doctor about the problem leading to the testing being obtained in the first place. ...Read more
Just got a blood test result where my NRBC was. 03 and I am supposed to see a hematologist. I'm worried and would like to know what it could mean.?
Nucleated RBC: Are immature forms of red blood cells. Normally not present in peripheral blood. Their presence often signals increased RBC turnover, either from increased destruction, increased production or both. Many causes but a hematologist can sort them out for you. Thanks for trusting HealthTap! ...Read more
I recently had a CBC test done and they found mcv-low, mch-low, rdw-high, and they found presence of nrbc's but I don't know how many. Reason for going in: headaches. What could it be?
NRBC: And the "indices" suggest a need for a heme consult. You didn't mention wbc, platelets or hematocrit/hemoglobin. Nrbc's are immature red cells, but it infers the bone marrow may be crowded out. Headaches doesn't help. The scenario can be serious. Leukemia and metastasis on the list, but you need moer information and I do too. ...Read more
NRBC levels in recent blood test at 10/100 WBC. Follow up with Doc is later this week. Should I be concerned?
Need more info: Nucleated red cells in blood indicate vigorous red cell production, if this is the only finding on testing. If you had recent blood loss or started taking medication for anaemia, it would be a good sign. If NRBC are part of other changes in blood then it would need to be investigated. ...Read more
In ICU Jan 2016 - toxic granulation, NRBC. 3, atyp lymphs 6%. No diagnosis. May 2017 admitted w/ naus/vom. WBC 3.4, RBC 3.6, hgb 8. Any link?
The link if any with your 2016 admission may not be relevant. You are anemic and that needs to be investigated, along with your other symptoms. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. It would be prudent to see your doctor.
Wish you good health! ...Read more

IV Fe to treat severe Fe deficiency anemia. Recent CBC showed: 0.4 nRBC/100 WBC. 02 absolute nRBC These were both 0 a week ago. Normal?
To be expected: It is okay to have some nRBC's in your bloodstream when you are recovering from iron deficiency. It's very important that if you do not yet know the reason for your anemia, that you and your physician work to discover it -- monthly loss, vegetarianism without supplements, stomach ulcer, hookworm, something else. ...Read more
I am experiencing hip pain, difficulty walking and knee pain. The following also describe me: Joint stiffness, low WBC, 1.7 neutrophil count and high NRBC automated count 0.3 /100 WBC. I have MGUS, the doctor is not concerned.
Not so unusual now..: The number of americans, mostly women, living past 90 tripled between 1980 and 2010 to about 2 million, and will likely double every decade. Over age 90, it's about 2/3 women; after age 95, men make up about 1/4. Overall, probably getting into about 1% of the population living to age 92. ...Read more
WBC elevation?: Hi. Monocytes are a subclass of white blood cells. Is your overall WBC count elevated or the absolute monocyte count elevated? That's a very high percentage of monocytes. It can be elevated in certain infections, inflammatory conditions, and leukemias. Ask your doctor what, if anything, needs to be done to evaluate it. Good luck! ...Read more
Depends/definitions: If you define "live baby" as conception the numbers are hard to document. An estimated 3rd of conceptions never make it to the uterus, attach and start a pregnancy & are shed/aborted naturally. Others shed in the first few weeks when things don't work out. Add the estimated 20% or so that are aborted by man and the numbers are quite high. ...Read more
Maybe 1-3 % or so.:
Its getting less and less frequently done. I may have done maybe twice in the last 17 yrs or so, but saw it done during my training 10-12 times in about 2 years.

But they are pretty common and in low risk women, which you are, given your other negative tests, they are almost always meaningless. This is a great article actually written by my father...

About 50:50: In a 33-year follow-up of narcotics addicts just over half, 55.8 percent, tested negative for heroin use. About twenty percent tested positive, and 10.5 percent refused to provide a urine sample. Fourteen percent were incarcerated and not tested. Among those that had died, the most common cause of death, at 27 percent, was accidental poisoning or drug overdose, 45 percent of which was heroin. ...Read more
Not too much!: Vitamin c is overtaken by many and could have downsides. Take no more than 100mg/day. Vitamin a is fat soluble, and too much can causes many side effects. If you take the vitamin a precursor, beta-carotene, the only harm might be yellowing of skin at excessive doses. I recommend the mdr for regular vitamin a. ...Read more
Find cause: You should not try to treat your own anemia without finding a cause. Although the most common cause worldwide is iron deficiency, there are other anemias for which iron treatment is dangerous. Even for iron deficiency an underlying cause must be found. Please get with your physician, find the actual cause, and accept scientific treatment that is right for you. ...Read more

Underwater weighing: Based on physics. Without going into a dissertation on newtonian physics, hydrodensitometry, which is what this is called, is the difference between your weight in and out of the water and is used to calculate your body density. Then your body fat percentage is estimated--note estimated-- based on the principle that fat tissue is less dense than muscle and bone. ...Read more

100%: Sorry to sound flippant, but officially, I think it's true. If you really mean "abuse" and not periodic over-doing it - it is a diagnosis and really needs treatment to resolve it. Often that treatment can be a 12 step program. But you might mean a dual diagnosis, and while I expect it is quite a high %, it could be that a person is not suffering another disorder too. ...Read more
