Is this anemia: total iron 69, tibc 344, 20% sat, WBC 4.1, RBC 4.62, hemogl 12.9, hemat 39.8, MCV 86, MCH 28, mchc 32.5, RDW 20.1, platelet 183?
Your hematocrit...: Is on the low side of normal, but overall these counts, indices and lab values seem perfectly fine to me. Your serum fe is on the low side of normal, your TIBC is toward the high side of the normal range, making your %saturation low normal. Plts and WBC counts are normal. The operative word here is normal. A little more fe in your diet wouldn't hurt, but it's not critical. Have a good steak! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Wbc 13.2 RBC 4.73 hemoglobin 10.2 hematocrit 33.8 mvc 72 MCH 21.6 mchc 30.2 RDW 16.2 platelets 816, 000.Thoughts?Should i be worried with the platelets
Probably reactive: You are anemic and the numbers are suspicious for iron deficiency. If you are a healthy 34 year-old who menstruates regularly, you could easily be low in iron. The plaelet count is very high, but is likely reacting to the low iron and should come down if it is replaced. The elevated white cells (WBC) is not as easy to understand. Inflamation, infection, other? Could use more info. Good luck. ...Read more
Pediatric cancer? low RBC, low WBC, low platelets, low IGM, high MCV, low neutrophils, low monocytes and low eosinophils, occasional myelocytes,
Tough set of labs: Suppression of multiple cell lines certainly is a concerning finding on a CBC. Yes, there are pediatric cancers that may present with this type of blood test results. Talking to your heme/onc specialist as soon as possible would be advisable! But don't jump to conclusions because a specialist with the "whole picture" may give you a very surprising answer! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It is also important to know the numbers: how high is that wbc, for example. The best way to go for you is to discuss it with you doctor directly. ...Read more

High monocyte %, manual count in toddler. All other results on CBC normal, mono CT 16. Cause for concern?
Not necessarily: The monocytes are often up some in a variety of viral illnesses but less commonly than the lymphocytes. Infectious mononucleosis does occur in a muted ( less intense) form in toddlers & the usual mono blood test can be negative until months after the illness has passed. If the kid is cruising around enjoying life i would ignore the test & get back to living. ...Read more
Low WBC, low abs neurophils, and low anion gap w/o K. All other results of CMP and CBC w/diff. normal. Cause for concern?
Why tested?: 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, it would have helped to have the actual values rather than your interpretation of low and high. It would be better to discuss it with the doctor who ordered the tests as s/he knows more about your health. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more
Infection: Elevated WBC count is usually a response to an infection. The elevated monocytes may mean that you have a chronic infection or an autoimmune condition. You are taking methylprednisolone which is also used to treat the symptoms of an autoimmune condition so the elevated monocytes may be due to the condition that you are taken that med for. Check with your doctor. ...Read more

If your lab originally showed anemia and this are supplementary test to see what is the reason for your anemia, i would say that you have very mild iron deficiency.

Can't really tell: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with his patient. If the patient's blood white cell count is somewhat higher than the reference range, the ordering doctor may or may not consider the result a problem, depending on the patient's previous results, her symptoms, and her medications. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have been very very fatigued & weak & foggy headed feeling and had a CBC done and my WBC count was 14,000 & my Neutrophils were 10,000. What could be going on?
Get evaluated: Your WBC/neutrophils are slightly elevated. Infection, inflammation, drug (steroid), smoking, or blood conditions, etc can all potentially cause the elevated WBC. It can also be physiological. Without knowing your history and compete CBC (Hb, platetet, etc), it is difficult to narrow the diagnosis. Given that you are experiencing significant fatigue/weakness, I suggest you be evaluated. ...Read more

Seek medical check u: You need to tell us about your complete blood report like your Hemoglobin, Platelets and differential count(What type of white cells make up your WBC count of 14,000(% of different cells )). The hip joint changes you report are unlikely to be caused by Myeloma. A good internist can help you to sort out the cause of your high WBC count. So go see one soon. ...Read more
Not really.....: The differential (ie., the percentage of the different kinds of wbcs), plus some additional details as to why you were checking in the first place would be much more informative.

A wide range.....: Of normal is seen for both men and women. Generally, a range of 4k-10k per ul is commonly reported by most labs. However, the number of wbcs is only part of the picture.

Clinical context: This number might highlight as 'elevated' depending on your lab's cut-off values. The question is 'what' is your baseline WBC? If your body is stressed for some reason (often infection, but other things as well), the WBCs could increase. Also people without a spleen can have a higher WBC than others. Best to ask your doc about it or get a full evaluation on Health Tap. ...Read more
Leukocytosis: It means leukocytosis which is an abnormally high white blood cell (WBC) count. This finding can be associated with multiple clinical conditions including infections/inflammatory states but also leukemia.
