If my hemoglobin level is 11 am I considered anemic or not? I often feel dizzy especially in the night and very tired all blood test were okay.
Possibly: Although a hemoglobin level of 11 is less than the ideal of 12, it isn't exceptionally low. Keep in mind, if you are somewhat dehydrated during the time of the blood draw, your hemoglobin level will be reported as artificially high. More specific blood tests can be performed to confirm if anemia is the true cause of your symptoms. ...Read more

Fatigue is common...: Your platelet count and WBC are minimally elevated, and I doubt they have anything to do with your symptoms. The list of causes of fatigue is very long. Some other common causes of fatigue that I see in my practice include under active thyroid, depression / stress, and sleep disorders such as sleep apnea. Talk to your doctor. ...Read more

No: The typical blood test (meaning just test for blood cell count) draws only a few mls of blood which is almost immediately replaced with no impact.

I have pressure in my left temple, pressure behind my eye, pain in my left ear, tired and fuzzy. Blood test normal, go can't find anything, what wrong?
You need to...: ... keep gong back and working with your doctor until you have an answer. The most worrisome thing is that you have multiple symptoms that are localized to the same area: the left side of your head. In my opinion, MR imaging should be done. Excluding some type of growth or blood vessel problem in this part of your head is important. Good wishes:) ...Read more

Dr said iron level is 30 it's good, she said "your blood test look good" is 30 not low? Is there another number they measure? Feeling so tired lately
I am 65 years old and ihave been very tired and weary for 5years. I have recently had a blood test showing low creatinine. Could I do something for it?
Low cretinine is by it self not an issue. From your description you may have a low muscle mass. You need to attend to your nutrition and engage in gradually increasing physical activity to increase your muscle mass. You may wish to try over the counter multivitamins and consult your doctor. See this site for advice on nutrition.

Several of them: "Adrenal fatigue" is a "pop" / "fad" diagnosis seen mostly in people in difficult living situations; I think it's bogus. True adrenal insufficiency can be screened for by simply labs but often requires an ACTH stimulation test for definitive diagnosis; it's fatal if missed. Too much adrenal hormone / cortisol is best screened for by timed urine studies and a dexamethasone suppression test. ...Read more
My blood test says evrything is great and the only thing that was a tad high was neutrophils. I'm trying to figure out why I am always tired?
Do you exercise?:
It may seem counter-intuitive, but engaging in exercise may help. Start with walking and gradually increase the intensity. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form.
