See someone: Hello, You are anemic. There are many possible causes of anemia and most of them are benign and treatable. This could be a result of an inherited hemoglobin trait or from heavy bleeding during your menstrual periods. You do need to see a doctor so that they can run some tests and sort through the possibilities to take the proper action. ...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

What does it mean to have red cell distribution width 16.3h, absolute neutrophilis 9.5h, segmented neutrophils 79.7h, lymphocytes 14.2, blood gas base excess 2.8h, blood gas bicarbonate 27.9h, carbon dioxide 31h, glusoe 143h, can you explain my results?
No. Ask your doctor.: To interpret your venous blood tests we need complete blood cell count test results. To interpret your arterial blood gas test we need arterial pH and pO2 values. The only conclusions I can make with this limited data are that you may have a bacterial infection and that your blood sugar is slightly high. (?) BTW carbon dioxide of 31 is not high. Normal range is 35-45. Ask your doctor! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
