What Does A High Rdw Blood Test Mean
Many possibilities: The website given below provides a list of causes of elevated ldh. However, it may be elevated if you exercised before the blood test. 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. Http://www. Nlm. Nih.

I'm wanting to know when some of your blood test are high what does it mean. WBC is 13.5 RDW is 15.9 NEUR is 8.9?
CBC interpretation: WBC=white blood cell count, typically reported in mm3. Yours is 13, 500. Normal is 4, 500-10, 800. Mild elevations can be due to infection, especially when mainly neutrophils, as seen in your CBC. RDW=red cell distribution width. It is a measurement of variation in RBC size. Normal is <14.5. RDW can be elevated for a variety of reasons. Usually represents an increase in early forms. Hope this helps!
Suggests low iron: Mean corpuscular hemoglobin (mch) relates to how much hemoglobin on your red blood cell (see mchc - adds concentration to mch). Forget exact acronym, but RDW measures (via flow cytometry) size of many red cells--normal to have all about one size. If becoming anemic, see wide variation which raises RDW #. Both of these can be due to low iron, but also folate (folic acid) or B12--ask your Dr for context & plan

My blood test shows that.... Thet Hgb, PCV normal and RBCs Count high and MCV, MCH and MCHC low and RDW-CV high. .......what is that means?
Thalassemia minor?: With normal packed cell volume, high red cell count, low MCV, I'd consider you may have thalassemia minor. This is good to know because if you marry someone else who has this, the children may have the very serious thalassemia major. Talk with your physician about this and what he/she thinks is actually going on.
Blood test: I have a low MCV, low mch and high rdw. I have euthyrodism- T3, (liothyronine) T4 & S-TSH fine bt my SHBG is high at 198.5 what does it mean?
Need more info: All lab results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the test is usually in the best position to do that. You did not state your question and what you described could well be normal for you.
Means nothing: A high RDW is a measure of the variability in size among red cells. When it is low, it's a fluke of statistics, and you should ignore it -- lab "normals" are set so that a few healthy folks lie outside. I run a high RDW as a frequent blood donor, and elevation is a common first-hint that something may be unusual; many healthies have high rdw's for various reasons. Labs mean nothing in isolation.See 2 more doctor answers
RDW: RDW=red cell distribution width. This is a statistical measure or the degree of variation in sizes of the red cells. It is a useful parameter ini classifying anemias that may otherwise be similar, for example iron deficiency and some thalassemias. But other parameters are more generally useful.
My recent blood test showed, ESR and RDW levels slightly high, and hematocrit level decreased slightly. Should I be worried?
Lab data: Difficult to comment on lab results without clinical correlation, but you are slightly anemic and if this is iron deficient anemia it may be because of bleeding during your period and may require iron supplementation. The increased ESR and CRP are probably of no consequence. Get an answer to why your hemoglobin is low. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Hb, lekosit, trombosit, eritrosit, mcv, mch, mchc all normal. Only hematokrit n RDW low. What's that mean from blood test 2 years old child?
Normal: Don't worry, so long the child is healthy otherwise
I was feeling ill and went to er and was told I was fine but I see my rdw and monocyte is high on my blood test. Should I worry?
Think positive...: If you have been checked in ER, your doctor would have told you if there was anything significantly wrong. The kind of changes in your blood that you have noticed are not all that important in terms of causing any health probleems. As long as your Hemoglobin (Hb), white cell count (WBC) and platelet count are in the normal (reference range) you can be worry free. Just think positively, U are healthy
I had a blood test I see mono% 9.5 high, eos% 9.3 high, mchc 32.3 low, RDW 11.4 low. What should I do. Should I worry. Thanks.
High eos...: ...Usually raise suspicion of allergy or parasite infection; others are nonspecific. A better question would be, why was the test done in the first place?See 1 more doctor answer
Last blood test showed high MCH (100) low RDW (11) and low ceruloplasmin (.15)? Are any of these of concern? Feel very dizzy a lot
Hello doctors I am 28 year old mother, my blood test report showed 15.4% RDW and 18% pdw. Is it high? Pls tell me steps to reduce this.
Iron deficient?: My first concern, even if you are not anemic. Don't treat lab values, but this can be a warning.
Been very ill. Some of my blood test came back still waiting on many. Platelet count of 679, white blood count high 14, rdw 23, neutrophilid 11?
High WBC count.: In what you’ve provided here, your WBC count is high, which in and of itself could suggest infection or inflammation. The platelet count is likewise high, but this could be just reactive (the platelet count is an acute phase reactant) or it could mean that the bone marrow is generally proliferative. Not enough here to really. Hazard a guess.
I've blood test indicate high ESR 70-110, high mchc 36.2, low RDW 30.8, high mpv 12.3, low pct 32% w/ other test normal. Am I susceptible to hiv?
Everybody...: ...Is "susceptible" to HIV - as in, able to catch it if exposed. If the question is "do I have hiv, " only an HIV test can answer that with any degree of reliability, and the tests you mention do not help with that question one way or another.
My last CBC blood test indicated RDW of 16.2, MCV 82, MCH 27.5, MCHC, 33.4 and platelets 390. The only high readings were the RDW and platelets.?
Blood test showed, ESR and RDW levels slightly high, and hematocrit level decreased slightly but no iron deficiency, suffering from dizziness. Scary?
POT and Minerals: A twenties female taking Aldactone (spironolactone) and who has dizziness needs blood mineral and thyroid tests. If these are normal a mild case of postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (pots) becomes of concern. I have seen pots problem in women with joint hypermobility syndrome (jhs), and generalized musculoskeletal deconditioning seems etiologic. See an osteopath.
