What Does Low Rdw Mean In Blood Work
I had blood work up done. My rdw-cv came back 10.9, which is a tad low according to the range listed. What does this mean?
Lupus blood work f/u normal except what does high RDW (16) and low mchc 30.5 & low hgb 10.6, low hct 34.8 mean?
Blood work was good except for the following: creatinine was 1.15(tad high), alkaline phosphatatase 36 (tad low), and rdw-cv 10.9 (tad low). Worry?
No: Most blood tests have a mean peak value with upper and lower limits extending out from the bell shaped peak. Having a mean blood vessel diameter slightly off as well as a creatinine and alkpo4ase is of no consequence since it doesn't portray active disease in an organ. The alkpo4 as can be derived from various sources such as bone and lung tissue and if asymptomatic should be ignored. ...Read more
Fasting blood work, RDW high 19.3 with RBC 4.81, hemoglobin 12.9, hematocrit 39.2, MCV 82. What does this mean? Trouble tolerating exercise and sleeping and tired, what's wrong with me?
What's wrong with u?: This laboratory data is not abnormal enough to account for your symptoms. You need a thorough physical exam and additional laboratory testing done to find out why you have poor exercise tolerance. Your post is a bit unclear - are you sleeping a lot or too little? I recommend seeing a functional medicine doctor to put it all together. Find one here: http://bit.Ly/11zdjeo. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Had blood work done and would love to know what the following means. Mpv 9.5 WBC 9.65 RDW 15.4 anisocytosis 1+a ovalocytes 2+a co2 23.
No worries: Mpv is mean platelet volume. Not of much use unless platelets are low. Wbc is white blood count (9.65 normal). Rdw is statistical indication of variation in red blood cell size (15.4 slightly high, hence anisocytosis). Ovalocytes are oval red blood cells. Co2 is carbon dioxide (23 normal). None of these results are concerning with respect to your health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
With lupus my last blood work stated h RDW & l GFR with tremors down my r side with tingling should this be a big concern to worry about?
Need evaluation: Elevated RDW is not that big a deal, as long as your hemoglobin level is normal. Low GFR is of concern in a person with lupus, as it is an indication of kidney disease. You need to be evaluated further to assess the extent of kidney disease as well as the symptoms you mentioned. I trust that you are under the care of a doctor and you should discuss all of this with her/him. ...Read more
