The higher than normal reticulocyte count with the low haptoglobin are consistent with hemolysis (red blood cell (rbc) breakdown).

Is there any connection between neuro issues and high haptoglobin that any of u docs can think of???
No: What I do know is that your elevated haptoglobin will not be the key to identifying the cause of your neuro issues. A comprehensive history and physical will pick up the stuff that gets missed -- anything from porphyria to a faulty home heater making carbon monoxide -- is much more helpful than a bunch of labs. ...Read more
