What Does Estimated Gfr Mean On Blood Test Results
Just got a blood test result where my NRBC was .03 and I am supposed to see a hematologist. I'm worried and would like to know what it could mean. ?

I had a blood test done & results: AKI warning grade 1. Creatinine 107 umol/L. Estimated GFR 55 'consistent with CKD stage 3A. What does this mean?

Nothing: Labs mean nothing whatever in the absence of a clinical history and physical exam. Especially, relative percentages of lymphocytes and granulocytes is junk data that, frankly, i wish the labs wouldn't even report. The absolute counts of both lymps and monocytes fluctuate wildly hour by hour, and i'd draw no conclusion. I hope some other finding will reveal the true cause of your chronic fatigue. ...Read more

Suffering with dehydration, no amount of water seems to make me feel better. Awaiting blood test results but what can I do or take in the mean time?

Until you have your tests done, there's not much i can suggest without more history data. ...Read more
Just got blood test results. My reticulocyte count was fine, but the "immature fraction" was high (0.19). What does this mean? Should i be concerned?
Anemia?: Reticulocyte count, corrected reticulocyte count, and reticulocyte production index are used to measure whether the bone marrow is responding adequately to the destruction of red blood cells in a hemolytic anemia. In severe anemia, reticulocyte maturation time is prolonged and considered in calculations, due to the bone marrow releasing immature forms. If you are not anemic, i wouldn't worry. ...Read more
