RBC size: Mcv stands for mean cell volume and measures the size of a red cell. Small size can be due to iron deficiency or various inhereted kinds of anemias most commonly. Large red cells are seen with B12 deficiency, Folic Acid deficiency, alcohol abuse, liver disease, some drugs, hypothyroidism, and many kinds of bone marrow problems. Mcv is used to help find the cause of anemia. ...Read more
Depends...: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/red_blood_cell_distribution_width -- RDW is a measure of the variation of red blood cell (rbc) volume. What it indicates depends on the context of other lab values and history and physical exam. ...Read more
Large red bloodcells: If the MCH level is over 34, this is considered to be too high. The main reason that the MCH level would be too high is because of macrocytic anemia. Macrocytic anemia is a blood disorder in which not enough red blood cells are produced, but the ones that are present are large (thus fitting more hemoglobin). Macrocytic anemia is often caused by having too little vitamin B12 or folic acid. ...Read more

I had a CBC done and the result says normochromic normocytic anemeia is present. What does that mean?
Anemia: Normochromic means that your red cells are normally colored (not too pale or too dark). Normocytic means that your red cells are normally sized (not too small or too large). Hematologists categorize anemias in this way so they can generate a list of causes responsible for a given anemia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Numbers: Iron (not to be confused with hemoglobin) is the amount of the element in blood bound to plasma proteins. It's helps estimate how much iron is available to make more red cells. Mch and MCHC are mean corpuscular (red cell) hemoglobin and hemoglobin concentration; how well-hemoglobinized the red cells are (tends to be low in iron deficiency and some other illnesses.) iron deficiency's common & cruel. ...Read more
Sir. What drug can i take if my differential count in CBC is abnormal, my lymphocyte is low and my neutrophil is high. Thanks. ?
No drug: Sometimes, abnormal CBC differential can be a variation. If CBC differential is truely abnormal, we need to find out what the underlying causes are. Is it due to infection, inflammation or other blood conditions? Once we know the causes, we can treat them accordingly as indicated. No drug to treat numbers, and never treat numbers, TREAT PATIENTS. ...Read more

Need more info: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside. A lowish WBC is a concern if and only if neutrophils or lymphocytes are very much below the bottom of the reference range. If this is the case, your physician will already have advised you. Otherwise, don't worry. You're a person, not a bunch of numbers. ...Read more
What causes a high number/percentage of MID cells in CBC when the overall WBC is in the normal range? ESR is also high (50mm/hr) and slight anaemia.
Increase in monocyte: Monocytes are increased frequently after a viral infection or after some bone marrow insult--again usually viral, but can be associated with exposures or other type of illness. The elevated sed rate represents some sort of inflammatory response to something--the slight anemia requires more information. Please visit with your physician to understand what is going on with you medically. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Hi! my wife has a total WBC count of 7700 cells/cu.mm. neutrophil of 50% and lymphocyte is 42%. is it normal or anything concerning?
My test results show low WBC, HGB, and HCT with normal RBC and a monocyte level of 13%. What does this indicate?
How low?: 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. Having said that, It would have helped to have the actual results. The monocyte count, by itself is not particularly meaningful. ...Read more
On a CBC what does it mean when it says MCH is 25.8 mchc is 31.6 both indicating low and RDW is 15.8 indicates a high read?
My ferritin level is a 0 and my hemoglobin is 7. My doctor is sending me to a hematologist. But what could these numbers indicate besides low iron?
Blood loss: Severe iron deficiency anemia usually stems from blood loss. Have you had external bleeding,black or red bloody stools, very heavy periods? The fact that you're not severely weakened suggests a gradual blood loss, rather than an acute hemorrhage. The hematologist is best qualified to evaluate and treat you and order the appropriate tests. ...Read more
