Platelet Rich Plasma
No: Why should it?Get a more detailed answer ›
No: You are comparing two "alternative" treatments in which stuff is injected into the insertions of ligaments / tendons. In prolotherapy, the operator injects sugar, glycerine, or some other simple substance. Injecting platelet-rich plasma is a whole new level of things. Caveat emptor. ...Read more
Conc. electrolytes.: These refer to the concentration of electrolytes in the body/plasma, or the electrolyte-water balance. These measure the same thing, only that osmolality is the number of osmoles per kilogram of solvent or osm/kg, while osmolarity is the number of osmoles per liter of solution or osm/ltr. Osmolality excludes the solute, while osmolarity includes it, so osmolality has a slightly higher reading. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Red blood cells-5.9, hematocrit- 55%, hemaglobin-18.0, esr-2, ldh-199, white blood cells- 9.0 (high neutrophils) & platlets-285, 000 polycythemia vera?
Can't tell. need w/u: Normal range will vary -depending on the range used on each lab. On my lab, hb of 18 is still normal for male. Your white blood cell and platelet are also within normal range. I don't see any problem there-except you said you have high neutrophils- which can be caused by many things. However, if you are worried about p.Vera- go to see a hematologist and she/he will be able to help you. ...Read more

Growth factors: Prp (or platelet rich plasma), is a portion of concentrated platelets taken from your own drawn blood, used in injured areas. There has been limited proof that it works as advertised, but we can inject it into areas that we want to augment the healing process. It seems also to have some pain relieving properties. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blood tests show high mean platelet volume, low platelet count, high urobilinogen, high WBC, high clumpy platelet morphology. Related? conerns?
Why the tests?: 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, it might have helped to have the actual values rather than high and low. Why were the tests done? It would be prudent to discuss these with the doctor who ordered the test as s/he knows more about your health. 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
Red blood cells count 5.60 (4-5.20) MCV 68(70-85) rdw, rbc19.8(12_16.5) neutrophils 18(24-62) lymphocytes 75(31-65) and abnormal red blood cells morph ?
Polycythemia?: Are you a smoker? Your labs look like a patient with polycythemia. High hemoglobin, low mcv. The neutrophils and lymphocytes are abnormal. Missing information. What is the white blood cell count? Platelets? Smokers can have a polyclonal lymphocytosis. But need to see the whole cbc. ...Read more
My wbc4.7, rbc4.18, hemoglobin 13.4, hematocrit39.5, mcv94.6, MCH 32.0, mchc33.8, rdw14.7, platelet count 219, absolute neutrophil ct122, segs26, is this bad?
How are you feeling?: Any fever, infections? Good news: you do not have anemia. Platelet count is also normal. Total white cells number is acceptable. I believe that you made a mistake in absolute neutrophil ? The % neutrophil (seg) is 26, lower than normal. As long as you do not have fever& free from infections, you are safe. Consult with hematologist. Do not worry. Simple problem.. Can be easily handled. Thanks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Many: Depends on how low the count is and what other symptoms and signs are associated with it and what caused the low count. A common risk is propensity to infections. See this site for more info. http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/low-white-blood-cell-count/my00162. ...Read more
