Iron deficiency: RDW likely high because some cells are normal size, and some are abnormal (probably small). The ferritin and TIBC suggests possible iron deficiency - a low MCV (not listed) with negative history of thalassemia would help clench it. Rarer causes could be copper deficiency, vitamin B6 deficiency, or heavy metal poisoning (lead). ...Read more

Focus on Important v: You need to focus on important values which are Hemoglobin(Hb) instead of RBC count and give us your WBC count instead of lymph count and platelet counts. Rest is not important unless the 3 values I have asked you to focus on are high or low(abnormal) which is not the case with you. So your blood test results are fine. ...Read more

What does an elevated RDW level mean if all other levels are within normal range? RDW level is 15.1%

What does an elevated RDW level mean if all other levels are within normal range? RDW level is 15.1%

Really, nothing: Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either side. Keep this in mind. In iron deficiency before anemia begins, high RDW is the first change. Could this be a factor? ...Read more

What is RDW for bloodwork and what does it mean when it's high. All others normal. ?

What is RDW for bloodwork and what does it mean when it's high. All others normal. ?

Size variation: It means nothing by itself; plus, hopefully you know that all lab reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. Early iron deficiency raises RDW before anemia begins but often it's up for no apparent reason. Mine's usually high because I donate blood. Don't worry about it. ...Read more

Normal mcv but high rdw what are the risk and causes? And can it be regulated back to normal?

Normal mcv but high rdw what are the risk and causes? And can it be regulated back to normal?

Don't Rx a lab: Early iron deficiency often does this, but remember that lab reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. Especially, don't get all worried about trying to adjust a lab value back into reference range; something is always outside. ...Read more

What does it mean when the MCV is normal and RDW is low and what does it mean when the grf is 87?

What does it mean when the MCV is normal and RDW is low and what does it mean when the grf is 87?

Nothing.: Mcv is red cell size. Rdw is the variation in red cell size. A low RDW has no meaning. Gfr is a way of measuring kidney function, and a GFR over 60 is of no concern. ...Read more

Lymphs 4.6 mchc 31.3 RDW 15.2 mpv 6.5 all others normal what could this mean?

Lymphs 4.6 mchc 31.3 RDW 15.2 mpv 6.5 all others normal what could this mean?

Probably nothing: I'm going to assume that your other parameters are normal, and that a bleeding time has been performed and did not suggest platelet problems. Lab reference ranges are set so that several percent of otherwise-healthy folks fall outside on either end. Get checked again in six months or as your fatigue workup continues. ...Read more

MCH is high (39.8pg) MCHC is high (376g/l) and RDW is low (10%) - MCV is normal (90.6fL) - what could this mean?

MCH is high (39.8pg) MCHC is high (376g/l) and RDW is low (10%) - MCV is normal (90.6fL) - what could this mean?

More info: Is there a family history of spherocytosis? Is there any history of jaundice (yellowness) or of enlarged spleen. Why was this group of tests done and what other tests were done? Looking forward to more info. ...Read more

Spherocytosis?: Are you anemic? Was a reticulocyte count done? What's the big picture? Labs mean nothing without it. If you're very close to your lab's reference range, it may mean nothing -- a few % of healthies fall outside. A low RDW would be a bit of a surprise in classic spherocytosis. ...Read more
