Remedies For Anisocytosis
My Hemogram report says :ALERT!!! Anisocytosis, what is this .is this serious and do I need to go for any treatment for this?
Need more info: 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, if that is the only abnormality, it is not anything to be concerned about. If your hemoglobin is normal and WBC count is normal, I would not worry. Why did you have the test done? ...Read more
Varied sizes: Your red cells come in different sizes. It means nothing by itself, and if there's nothing else wrong with the blood, and you feel okay, I wouldn't give it any more thought. I'm a heavy-duty blood donor; I discovered I produced big red cells when I remembered to take my iron supplement and small ones when I forgot. My anisocytosis was impressive. "Treat the person, not the numbers!" cheers. ...Read more
If both are: Reported that would indicate a blood smear with size and color variation in the red blood cells. While a potential sign of a "stressed" marrow, it would be an over call to say this in and of itself is "bad.". ...Read more
I'm diagnosed with anisocytosis, macrocytes. Mcv=98.1fl. I am 24 f. Have no obvious symptoms of any disease. Shud i b worried?
Red cell morphology: Ovalocytes are red blood cells which have lost their normal biconcave shape. Anisocytosis means that the red cells are of different non-uniform shapes and sizes. These findings are used in conjunction with other elements of your blood count to classify anemia and identify possible causes. Those can include a variety of things that damage rbcs or interfere with their proper maturation. ...Read more
Hi I want to ask a question my report result say I have a condition anisocytosis and report suggests hb electrophoresis?
Hb electrophoresis: This test may be requested if there is a need to evaluate a patient for abnormalities of the hemoglobin molecule. If found, it can shed light on the cause of your abnormal blood report. ...Read more
Please explain what it means when you have a blood test and the results say there are ovalocytes and anisocytosis present, and abnormal?
Non-specific: If you total red cell count and hemoglobin were normal, I would ignore these findings. It just refers to the shape and cell size variation. ...Read more
Hello doctor fatima here! I have a question ........I would like for yr concern ...i hv got results of my cp test it confirmed anisocytosis hypochromi?
Anemia: Anisocytosis is a large variation in the size and shape of the red blood cells (They are usually smooth, uniform and disk-shaped). Hypochromia means that the red blood cells are pale because they contain too little hemoglobin (the oxygen carrying molecule of the red blood cell). These findings are consistent with a moderately severe iron-deficiency anemia. Hopes this info helps! ...Read more
Is it normal for a 2.5 YO to have results of Anisocytosis: Rare Burr Cells: Slight, Microcytes: Rare, Polychromasia: Rare on a morphology Report?
No, your comments are not "normal". If your child has the issues you report you must continue to see a specialist.
If you are not satisfied with the doctor you take tour child, have one of your friends refer you to a doctor with whom you will be more satisfied.
Wish the baby well — please keep me posted; we can all learn something. ...Read more
Hello sir, I am suffering from anisocytosis, thrombopenia, platelets agrigats, macroplatolets...please help me .how to recover my self from these.
Sorry, but you apparently cannot recover yourself. You must see your doctor as soon as you can.
If there is a delay you should probably have someone take you to the nearest Emergency facility.
Hope all goes well! ...Read more
What does Platelet anisocytosis mean on blood smear? Platelet count is 454K. (10 days ago it was 482K)
Both are normal.: Most labs use as a normal range for platelets to be 150, 000 to 450, 000. The slight increase you wrote of are not concerning. Anisocytosis refers to change in size---not all the same size platelets. Large platelets can be associated with many things, including bone marrow replacement with younger platelets. Smaller platelets can be associated with different genetic conditions or may be normal. ...Read more
I have a WBC of 3.8, Anisocytosis +1, and Poikilocytes +1 listed on my lab results. Everything else shows up as being normal. What does this mean?
Talk to your doctor: These results could indicate a viral syndrome. It is best to discuss the results with the provider who ordered the test. ...Read more
19 months old anisocytosis 1+, microcytes 1+, ovalocytes 1+, poikilocitosis 1+, RBC count high 5.6(4-5.2), MCV low 68(70-86), rdw. Rbc high 19.8(12-16)?
Iron deficiency: Without having more a picture of what is going on, those numbers would be consistent with iron deficiency, especially given the age of the child. Iron studies should be performed to confirmed. Does the child drink a significant amount of milk (>18 oz per day)? A trial of oral iron (not just what is found in multivitamins) would be a reasonable thing to try. ...Read more
Low hemoglobine, hematocrit&creatinine w/anisocytosis poikilocytosis anisochromia microcytes dianocytes schitocytes difusse basophilia, what it means?
Get it looked at: Your peripheral smear and your labs need to be reviewed by a hematologist or hematopathologist for accuracy of the lab report and possible diagnosis. It may be nothing more than minor genetic fluke, or something significant. Heads up -- vasculitis in the gall bladder wall is usually nothing to worry about though it scares some pathologists into overcalls. ...Read more

RBC Morphology : Microcytic- Hypochromic smear seen, Anisocytosis-Poikilocytosis. What test covers etiology?
What's the issue when blood test is: hemoglobin:13.4g/dl-mcv 75fl-mch 25.2pg-mchc 33.4g/dl-iron 88mcg/dl.& note saying:slight microcytosis-anisocytosi?
All these: Signs point to iron deficiency, but the HGB is not low. Could be thalasemia trait. ...Read more
My complete blood picture results note is rbcs show hypochromia, microcytosis and anisocytosis should I see a doctor or not?
Anemia of low iron?: Per your description, the most likely cause is iron deficiency anemia (hypochromia= less color/red than usual, microcytosis=smaller cells, anisocytosis=too many cells of different sizes). Being female of 39 (menstrual loss), I suspect this is most likely the diagnosis. Take some otc irons, avoid carbonated beverages (they bind up your irons), and consult doc for eval. Good luck. ...Read more
MCV chronically high at 103. Now reticulocyte count was low at .5%. Iron and b12/folate are normal. Macrocytes and anisocytosis were observed.
SLIDE REVIEW results, anisocytosis 1+, microcytes 1+, normochromic,ovalocytes occasional, toxic granulation 2+, toxic vacuoles 1+, large platelet 1+Whado?
Clinical picture: The real question is, how do you feel? These findings, while abnormal, may never be explained. In isolation, apart from the clinical picture, they are meaningless. I trust the reader is a pathologist or hematologist -- I'm the former, and often remind people that labs, while indispensable, are adjuncts to the clinical findings. ...Read more
My CBC says mpv are missing due to platelet anisocytosis, mono12, mch25, mchc32.5, platelets 151000, hb12.9 is this ok, 2years back I was itp patient.
None: Of these numbers are of concern. The variation in platelet size may have "confused" the automated instrument. ...Read more
Had blood work done and would love to know what the following means. Mpv 9.5 WBC 9.65 RDW 15.4 anisocytosis 1+an ovalocytes 2+a co2 23.
No worries: Mpv is mean platelet volume. Not of much use unless platelets are low. Wbc is white blood count (9.65 normal). Rdw is statistical indication of variation in red blood cell size (15.4 slightly high, hence anisocytosis). Ovalocytes are oval red blood cells. Co2 is carbon dioxide (23 normal). None of these results are concerning with respect to your health. ...Read more
5 yo cbc had slight low hgb/rbc. Mcv and rdw is high w/slight anisocytosis. Referred to hematologist who said not urgent. Appt is in 6 wks. Worry???
No: Consider administering a pediatric vitamin with plenty of iron while you're waiting. ...Read more
3 years old child with high SGOT 77+ U/l and high SGPT 98+ U/l. Doctor prescribed cortisone as immunosuppresant. Mild Anisocytosis, absolute lymphopen?
Hello dr ....I am fatima .....im 22 yrs old ....recently I got test results from my university clinic ....i m diagnosed with anisocytosis hypochromia .....where ...dctrs furthur refer me for hb electrophoresis ....as being medicine student I think may it
Can you clarify?: Relax. I've given myself anisocytosis and occasional hypochromic cells just by frequent blood donations. You need some basic iron studies and a hemoglobin electrophoresis with an eye perhaps to thal minor. If you're iron deficient, the cause needs to be found. If you have thal minor, you need advice on planning a healthy family. Relax and welcome the chance to learn. Best wishes. ...Read more
I got my results back, it says hypochromic&anisocytosis.Doesn't that mean iron deficiency? My doctor prescribed cac 100. Do I require fe supplement also
5 yo cbc is hgb 11, Rbc 3.68, wbc 13, mcv 91,rdw 24.4, slight anisocytosis. Referred to hematologist who said not urgent. Appt is in 6 wks. Worry???
Think it's OK- 6 wks: Following all the numbers with red blood cells is confusing. In this case the hemoglobin is mildly low and shows what is called normocytic anemia. The RDW and RBC with MCV don't point to a particular, or concerning cause, possibly a vitamin deficiency with MCV but it is barely abnormal as well. Knowing more of the history is important- chronic infections? Dietary restrictions? I copied a nice review http://www.aafp.org/afp/2001/1015/p1379.html#afp20011015p1379-t4 ...Read more
Mcv 69.6(L) rdw cv 22.2(H) platelets 415(H) neutrophils 28(L) lymphocytes 60.6(H) abs neutrophils 2.6(L) anisocytosis (marked) ovalocytes (slight) 11m?
Is this new?: If your previous CBC's have been okay, I'd address whether you are iron deficient (which seems likely) and if so why (your physician can address this with you), follow the very mild neutropenia (not a danger yet) and since the anisocytosis is marked, ask whether the lab's pathologist might be good enough to look at the smear. ...Read more
