What are the normal levels of red, white and platelet blood count for women?

What are the normal levels of red, white and platelet blood count for women?

Normal ranges: Each lab must establish their own normal range for the tests they offer, so there can be some variation between labs. In general, platelets run between 150000-450000/ml WBCs between 3, 5000-105000/ml, and RBCs between 3.9-5.0 million/mL. The rbc count is lower for women than for men due to the impact of menstruation. ...Read more

These results fall into the second group, not very specific. Would review with your internist with more history and physical details. Best of luck. ...Read more
