High White Count: A high white count usually indicates that a patient has an infection. When your kidneys fail you are more susceptible to infection for a whole bunch of reasons. The consequence is not so much that your blood count is high, but that you likely have an undiagnosed infection and this needs to be investigated by your dialysis doctor/nephrologist or your primary care doctor. ...Read more
Can't say & resupply: Low red cell count is either from lack of production, early destruction, or loss (= bleeding). That part of question depends on your Dr's eval and testing. Reticulocytes are young (/"immature") red blood cells. When RBCs are needed, production in bone marrow ramps up and cells are released a little early, which can tell on CBC. ...Read more

At some labs- normal range could be from 150 k to 450k , in other labs- normal range could be from 130k to 400 k. When you receive your lab result- the laboratory will tell you what the normal range/parameter they use for that specific test. ...Read more
Many things: A low rbc count is anemia, and causes include nutritional deficiencies (iron, b12, folic acid), bleeding, chronic illnesses of various kinds, malignancies, and primary bone marrow diseases to name a few. High rbc counts (polycythemia), can occur if there is a lack of oxygen in the blood (lung disease, sleep apnea, smoking for example) or with a blood disorder that causes too many rbcs to be made. ...Read more
Inflammation: The erythrocyte sedimentation rate is a nonspecific measure of inflammatory proteins in the blood causing the settling of erythrocytes slower. It also increases with age. It has to be done in view of something specific being followed or else an explanation may be missed. It follows the waxing and waning of diseases being followed as a response to treatments. ...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

Often a virus!: While blood cell count can be low with viral infections. Important to make sure that the red blood cell count and hemoglobin are normal and that the while blood cells are normal in appearance. If wbc, rbc and platelets are low, intervention by hematologist is necessary and may require bone marrow. Low WBC should be followed and return to normal when over the viral infection! ...Read more
Unlikely Hemolysis: Agree with dr. Singh; i would say in addition to the normal white count, which is involved with infection, a normal red blood cell and platelet count makes hemolysis, or breakdown of red cells, a less likely cause for jaundice as well, but totally agree that blood count is not sufficient to make a diagnosis. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
