Slightly Hypochromic Normocytic
Early IDA possible: Hypochromic suggests low iron (which can be measured by ferritin, transferrin, etc). Usually this would be from blood loss. Usually iron deficiency anemia (ida) is also assoc w/ microcytic (low mcv) red blood cells (rbcs). It depends on the numbers, other tests & history, but could be early iron deficiency/blood loss &/or more than one process -- eg b12/folate deficiency & ida. See md. ...Read more

I want to put on some weight as I am aneamic, suffering from normocytic hypochromic anemia? Is beef the cure?
Normocytic anemia: An anemia described as normocytic (normal red cell size) and hypochromic (low iron concentration in cells) does not make a diagnosis of iron deficiency (for which beef would be one cure). Typical iron deficiency is microcytic (small cells) and hypochromic. So there is probably something else going on. Don't jump to the beef quite yet. ...Read more

Hemolytic anemia: Anemia can be due to many factors and to even begin to know, clues are found on the size (normo, macro, micro) and coloration (hypo (pale color), normochromic (normal red color). When red cells lack a normal center, as in spherical forms, " hyperchromic" is used loosely, though the correct term may be spherocytes. Hemolytic anemia, with many causes, lead to normochromic "hyperchromic"anemia. ...Read more
I had a CBC done and the result says normochromic normocytic anemeia is present. What does that mean?
Anemia: Normochromic means that your red cells are normally colored (not too pale or too dark). Normocytic means that your red cells are normally sized (not too small or too large). Hematologists categorize anemias in this way so they can generate a list of causes responsible for a given anemia. ...Read more
I had a cbc test couple of weeks ago and it was R.B.c mild normochromic normocytic anaemia and p.c.v (H.c.T) 35.00?
Mild decrease in RBC: You have anemia which is under production or over destruction of red blood cells. Normocytic means that there in the normal range for size that's good. Microcytic often means iron deficiency. Macrocytic could mean problems with vitamin deficiency or with nuclear maturation arrest from toxins. The hematocrit is 35 which is in keeping with mild anemia. You may have had some blood loss. You may have hThe hematocrit is 35 which is in keeping with mild anemia. ...Read more

I feel pain in right side of stomach, sometimes on front and sometimes on back side. Reports show neutophila / normocytic normochromic, u/s is normal.
Gallbladder: Pain in the right upper abdomen and which radiates to the back suggests gallbladder dysfunction. In such cases an ultrasound might be negative. Often the next study to be ordered is an hidda scan, which is a nuclear medicine scan that, unlike the ultrasound which shows architecture of the gallbladder, shows function of this organ. ...Read more

I got my CBC report - it shows RBC NORMOCYTIC NORMOCHROMIC blood picture. What is this, is it normal or some dangerous thing?
This just tells you that the shape of a red blood cell is normal and so is the concentration of hemoglobin in the cell. The lab test in this regard will be normal if the red blood cell count and percentage by volume is also normal, informing you that you Do Not have a normocytic, normochromic anemia.

Anemia: You appear to have an anemia (mild) which is probably from iron deficiency for a woman of your age. The elevated WBC is suggestive of a current infection. The ESR increase may be related to the infection, the anemia, and/or something else. It is best that you consult our doctor about your condition. ...Read more
Anemia: Anemia refers to your hemoglobin and hematocrit (packed cell volume) levels. Essentially these tell you whether or not you have enough red blood cells. Your red cells are normal in size (normocytic) and have a normal amount of hemoglobin (normochromic). Causes include aplastic, posthemorrhagic, and hemolytic anemias and anemia of chronic disease. Lymphopenia = decreased lymphocytes. ...Read more
