Plate Count Agar
Severe Fe deficiency anemia, recent CBC showed monocytes 12.6% (reference 2-8). Is this abnormal? The monocyte count was 0.62.
Treat Fe deficiency: An elevated monocyte count is not material. I trust that you are taking oral iron supplement and multivitamins to correct iron deficiency. 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. 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

During regular blood checkup for my wife high platelet count was observed what does mean ? The following are the results (i) PLATELET COUNT 410 X 10³ / μL (ii) PLATELETCRIT(PCT) 0.42 Range : % 0.19 - 0.39 (iii) RED CELL DISTRIBUTION WIDTH - SD(RDW-SD) 5
Normal ranges: Each lab must establish their own normal range for the tests they offer, so there can be some variation between labs. In general, platelets run between 150k-450k/ml These ranges cover 95% of the normal people they test, so 5% of normal people will have values outside the range. The closer a person's values are to the range=more likely normal. Wife's values likely normal for her. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

If you are to have myelodysplasia hemoglobin is one of five criteria to set the risk group so risk stratification needs bone marrow studies to check for blast percentages and cytogenetics and platelets. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
