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

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.

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?

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?

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.

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?

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?

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?

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?

Not relevant: 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?

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

What does a Monocytes Percent of 12.2 mean?

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

What percent of babies around the us are aborted?

What percent of babies around the us are aborted?

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

In what percent of anatomy scans are soft markers seen?

Not sure: 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... It is a little outdated as there has since been a statement released downplaying soft markers. Here is a link
