Rbc Folate Level High
Suspect thal minor: No lab value means anything apart from a human being, and labs are numbers that may be far removed from the reference range, or just at the edges. I strongly suggest you do not self-diagnose but instead use the internet to become literate about health and the diagnostic process so you can be a partner with your physician. ...Read more
Folic acid, AKA folate (folic acid) (vit B9), is recommended for all women wanting to get pregnant -- 0.4mg (400mcg) daily, which is important for preventing birth defects like spina bifida. Women w/ a hx these disorders should take 10x that amt daily -- 4mg (4000mcg) through the 3rd month of pregnancy. It won't affect fertility, chances of conception/twins, or periods. ...Read more

Iron overload or...: High ferritin levels in your thirties could be an indication of an primary ( hemachromatosis) or secondary (hemosiderosis) overload state, or chronic inflammation. Ferritin levels in the iron overload states are typically quite high and are typically > 800; whereas chronic inflammation will produce levels typically <800. ...Read more
Recent labs showed high platelets high iron high tibc low normal ferritin level of 12 is this iron deficiency ?
Likely: The best test for iron deficiency anemia (ida) is ferritin. Sometimes when there is inflammation (an possible associated anemia of chronic disease/inflammation, the ferritin may increase as an acute phase reactant). The "gold standard" for diagnosis is a bone marrow biopsy, but rarely needed. High platelets are also associated with ida. Treatment should improve platelets and ferritin. ...Read more

Low hemoglobin (11.6),low mch, high rdw, low alkaline phosphates, all other values normal including rbc and b12. Possible cause? Iron deficiency?
May be: 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, iron deficiency is not uncommon in women in their reproductive years. It would be safe to take oral iron and multivitamin supplements and recheck hemoglobin at your next visit to your doctor. 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, if you have sex. ...Read more
Speak with your doc: It sounds as if your doctor is doing a diagnostic work up to include your parathyroic gland. If this is the case she may also order tests to visualize the gland as well as your bones. You may have had a recent fracture or problem that she is addressing. Hope you get to the bottom of it soon. ...Read more

May be, may be not: Further evaluation is obviously needed. I can't say whether it is related or not without getting more information. In many cases- probably those two are not related. However in a case of colon cancer with metastatic disease to the liver- it can cause both increase of bilirubin level as well as low iron. Go to see your md and discuss further your condition. ...Read more
Recent labs showed high platelets (416), high iron (148), high tibc (475), but a low normal ferritin level (12). Is this iron deficiency?
Suspect so: If the serum iron is in micrograms/dl, then this is not high but within the normal range, as it can be in iron deficiency in which the patient has perhaps taken an iron tablet or eaten steak recently. If the units for TIBC are micrograms/dl, then TIBC is distinctly high and this speaks for iron deficiency in any case. Don't treat iron deficiency without seeking a cause. ...Read more

Tapeworm: The High MCV and MCH would be expected with B12 deficiency as the RBC's are being discharge young from the bone marrow. Low RDW just tells you you have only one predominant population of RBCs (dark large ones) Elevated IgA can be caused by several conditions but a tapewor taking up residence in the terminal ilium would block the binding of intrinsic factor / B12 complex to its receptors. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Blood count terms: Rdw means red cell distribution width, which is the range of values for the width of your red blood cells. A higher number could mean that you are making lots more red cells for some reason. Mch mean mean (or average) red cell hemoglobin, which is the amount of hemoglobin in each red blood cell. If it's low, this means that your cells aren't carrying as much hemoglobin as they should. ...Read more

I live in canada and recently had blood work done my RBC folate (folic acid) level was 2423 is this too high? What could it mean?
Likely no problem.: Folate (folic acid) in the rbcs is a test done to see if a person is folate (folic acid) deficient. For pregnant women, this could mean neural tube defects in the newborn if it is low, and megaloblastic anemia and malnutrition in adults. Your levels are well above the adult range of 150-450 ng/ml/cells (340-1020 nmol/l/cells), and you should have nothing to worry about. It is water soluable and excesss is urinated out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Would MCV + RDW have to be HIGH for Folate-Anemia?
Try HealthTap PRIME: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with his patient. Getting all the details around a set of numbers is helpful in making interpretations.

I have enlarged RBCs, and low ferritin/iron. I'm homozygous MTHFR(never processed folate or B12, correctly). Is there a dr who understands both things?
Dad has low hemo rbc hemat since 2011. Got worse. can he still have iron def even if mcv is normal. Doc never gave ferritin test. B12/folate normal.
Microcytic anemia: Iron deficiency causes a "microcytic anemia", meaning the red blood cells are smaller (measure by the mean corpuscular volume or MCV). If there is simultaneously a macrocytic anemia, which can be caused by low folate or low B12, then the average MCV could be normal but there would be both smaller and larger cells (and the spread of cell sizes, measured by the RDW would go up). ...Read more
Symptoms of anemia but blood tests normal (iron, B12, folate, (folic acid) RBC, etc). What other common conditions would a doctor look for?
Anemia:rbc-3.7, hct-35.4, fer-50, iron-54, tibc 268, iron sat 20%, PLT 222, retic .6%, potas 5.2, B12 1500, folate (folic acid) 24.8. College athlete weight gain, fatig?
?Not anemic: Your rbc is low, but hct is probably at the bottom of normal. The other lab values are all normal. This discrepancy between rbc and hct usually means either your red cells are unusually big, or something is interfering with the counting. This can happen with a cold agglutinin (red cells clump in the cold), excessive alcohol, liver problems, or low thyroid. Given other symptoms, check thyroid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I had a CBC that was normal. 7 days later, start Bactrim for Lyme. 5 days thereafter, CBC shows mild anemia (low: RBC, Hgb, Hematocrit), with normal iron/ferritin. Low Folate, normal MCV. IS THIS FOLATE DEFIC. ANEMIA OR BACTRIM: APLASTIC ANEMIA?
Could be a problem: Red blood cells live about 3 months, which means there should not be a big drop in a previously normal person's blood count after just 12 days. That means 90% of a person's red blood cells present today, should still be present 12 days from now. A big drop in RBC's, Hgb, and Hct would mean a need to recheck the blood test and/or look for some cause of loss of existing red blood cells. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Probably not . .: First, please be assured that a Hb of 10.4 is not a danger to you or to the baby. The Bone Marrow makes 3 types of cells (WBC's, Platelets, RBC's). Your platelets and WBC's are normal. If you or your doctor were concerned about a bone marrow problem (i.e. bone marrow suppression), you can also get a test called a Reticulocyte Count. Best of luck! ...Read more
