Do you know a reason alkaline phosphate, RBC, Hemocrit, and Hemoglobin levels would all be low, but total iron would be in the normal-high range?

Is it possible to have a normal hemoglobin but low MCH and mchb and platelet count of 482 to be considered microcytic anemia?
Yes: A low mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH) and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (mchc), even in the absence of a low mean corpuscular volume (MCV) or low rbc count can be a sign of a evolving microcytic anemia. Microcytosis can be caused by iron deficiency (check ferritin level) or thallesemia (check hemoglobin electrophoresis). Hope that this helps. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends on when: It depends on the time of day and when her last meal was eaten. If she has been fasting all night and her morning blood sugar is >150 that is not "normal". If you are wondering about her having diabetes you can ask for a test called hgba1c. (hemoglobin a 1 c). A number above 8 would likely require some medication for diabetes. I hope this helps. ...Read more
Lab dependent: Each lab has slightly different reference ranges for each test. If you are asking about the TSH test, usually range is 0.4-4.0. Borderline high (for me) is 4.0-8.0, and above 8.0, i usually will treat or adjust the patients thyroid replacement. ...Read more
Under what circumstances would you have an elevated WBC count and a low CRP level on a blood test?
Too many to count: Without further information about what you were being evaluated for, the list of potential causes is much too long. Both the white cell count and the c reactive protein are what we call nonspecific tests, meaning they don't point to anything specific and there are many, many things that influence the results. ...Read more

Can be anything: Fasting from a vein should be 100 or less. Two hours or more after a meal it should be less than 130-140. A glucose above 200 at any time suggests diabetes. It is common to have glucoses as low as the mid 60's and be totally normal if you're healthy. Get a post meal or fasting with a hga1c if you're really concerned. Don't trust finger stick values. Check w/diabetes. Org for more info. ...Read more
Can you be anaemic if RBC test is normal but hemoglobin is borderline low, MCV is a little high & MCHC is low?
Anemia: Anemia is defined by a hemoglobin or hematocrit below "normal" Normal is specific to age and sex. Borderline low is still normal. High MCV could indicate folate (folic acid) or B12 deficiency, but this is not supported by low MCHC which might be seen with iron deficiency (which would actually cause the MCV to be low). All in all this then appears to be a normal variant - consider repeating in a few months. ...Read more
