What Does A High Red Blood Cell Count Mean
Is it a concern to have a glucose number at 94 and somewhat high glucose in urine? I don't feel bad. Also what does a high red blood cell count mean?
Incomplete info: Random or fasting blood glucose of 94 is not abnormal. If it was fasting, you need to be careful. High glucose in urine is of concern, even with "normal" blood glucose. How high is the blood count? PCOS is one of the risk factors for diabetes. It would be prudent to discuss these items with your doctor. 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. 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.

Diet: It may come from your diet preference (meat, liver, seafood, etc).

What does it mean to have high red blood cell count and high white blood cell count at the same time?
What does it mean when the red blood cell count is high? I also have a mass on my liver that has to be biopsied Wednesday. Could it be related?
Many causes: increased red blood cell mass can have many causes most of them are normal physiological responses. Such as being a smoker or having chronic lung disease or being at high altitude or having an intrinsic problem of hemoglobin such that you do not get enough oxygen delivery from your red blood cells to your tissues. There are tumors of the kidney but not liver which are related to this.
What does it mean when my red blood cell count is 5.24? it shoes as high and my hemoglobin and hematocrit levels are low?
Follow it up: Especially, ask your physician whether you have beta thalassemia minor. It's common and a non-problem, but it's worth knowing since if you marry someone else who has it, you may have a child with thal major which is very serious.
Depends: It depends upon how abnormal the counts are. Laboratory normals are set at the laboratory level and do not indicate normal for everyone. Values slightly outside the range may be completely normal for you and not for another person. This is where your doctor uses their experience and personal knowledge of your case.
I had a spinal tap done and the red blood cell count in CSF was 2000+ marked as elevated. What does this mean?It should be 0 accordinh to sheat
Bloody tap or bleed: Since you're able to type this question coherently, I gather that your health didn't suffer after the lumbar puncture, so that would probably rule out a cerebral bleed (hemorrhage) as a cause of the blood cells in CSF. Most likely the RBCs came from a "bloody tap" - trauma to blood vessels of the back from the needle. Normally, no vessels are damaged, but doctors are not perfect! Hope all is well.
My brother has been told he has a high red blood cell count was 19,and was told 15 is normal range he is going to see a specialist..what's wrong?
Depends: There are many causes of elevated Red cell count and hemoglobin and it is good that your brother is seeing a doctor for a proper diagnosis. It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examination and some tests.
Liver & polycythemia: Liver dysfunction and erythrocytosis can be seen with serious conditions like hemochromatosis (where the body absorbs and retains too much iron), polycythemia vera (where the bone marrow makes too many cells - red, white, & platelets), and liver tumors (both benign & malignant). A henatologist should always be consulted in cases like this so that an accurate and timely diagnosis can be made.
What causes a high red blood cell count it's at 19 and ESR is high, TSH 1.25 never been so low anti thyroid at 9 was 900 prev?
Lab data: These values need to be interpreted in clinical context. Discuss these values with the doctor who ordered them. Polycythemia can be primary or secondary. Low TSH can be a result of hyperthyroidism or other causes. Go and be evaluated and discuss with your diagnostician.
What is something that can cause high red blood cell count along with smaller then normal red blood cells?
Thalassemia: The most connon would be thalassemia minor or trait, an inherited disorder characterized by an increased number of rbcs that are smaller than normal in size, usually with mild anemia. These are disiases where to body has trouble making enough hemoglobin and are congenital. There are some other, more rare conditions as well that can do it.
