Iron deficient: Your hemoglobin may be low normal, but your iron stores are still depleted and if you do not correct the deficiency you will become anemic, especially of you are losing more than usual amount of blood each month. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat 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 or alcohol in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

My rbc was 4.46 low so was my hemocrit 39.9 and hemoglobin 13.7 what would be the issue my doc thinks this is fine?

My rbc was 4.46 low so was my hemocrit 39.9 and hemoglobin 13.7 what would be the issue my doc thinks this is fine?

I Wouldn't Worry: What makes you think those numbers are bad? As far as I know they are in the normal range. Now, labs have different range values but most are pretty close to each other. Your doc isn't bothered so why are you? Is it that you're feeling tired or weak or something? Talk to your doc about it. And maybe, in the context of whatever your problem may be, maybe those numbers aren't right, but I doubt it. ...Read more

Can you be anaemic if RBC test is normal but hemoglobin is borderline low, MCV is a little high & MCHC is low?

Can you be anaemic if RBC test is normal but hemoglobin is borderline low, MCV is a little high & MCHC is low?

Anemia: Anemia is defined by a hemoglobin or hematocrit below "normal" Normal is specific to age and sex. Borderline low is still normal. High MCV could indicate folate (folic acid) or B12 deficiency, but this is not supported by low MCHC which might be seen with iron deficiency (which would actually cause the MCV to be low). All in all this then appears to be a normal variant - consider repeating in a few months. ...Read more
