What to do if my husband has low blood count. Hemoglobin 14, RBC 5.59, low WBC 3700, platelets 157000.?

Not too 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, the counts are not too low. Hemoglobin is normal. WBC is slightly low but may be his normal. platelets are at the lower end of normal. Read more...

My husband has low blood count. Hemoglobin 14, RBC 5.59, low WBC 3700, platelets 157000. What's wrong with him?

I think he's fine. There's no such thing as a perfect husband, but I don't see any problems with his blood picture. The total WBC count is actually at the low end of what I think is a reasonable reference range, and unless the neuts are very low or he's clearly sick clinically, I'd simply be thankful for good health. I trust he has other faults and that the two of you will be forbearing & love one another. Read more...

Hemoglobin 11.6 (reference 12-16), hematocrit 36.8 (ref 37-47), rion 130 (ref 37-145), ferritin 14 (ref 13-150) - do these results indicate anemia? If so how much iron should I be taking? Other results like full blood count are within normal range.

See below. 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, your are mildly anemic and have mild iron deficiency. One 65 mg tablet of iron and one multivitamin tablet would be sufficient. However, iron deficiency in an adult male warrants an investigation to rule out abnormal bleeding and you ought to consult your doctor.

Male 65yrs old fit but my hemoglobin was just under 13 doctor says nothing to worry about always had low blood count is it ok?

Not normal. Hemoglobin of 13 g/dL is not normal. I would ike to have more information: MCV and MCH. The levels of iron, tranferrin saturation or Ferritin , B12, thyroid hormone and Testosterone levels should be checked. Depending on these results then proceed. Read more...
Probably. Every person is unique. If your blood counts have been steady at that number and you feel good and are active and happy: first I'd ask "what's your secret?' Then I'd say don't worry about it, unless there is a change and/or you don't feel well. Read more...
I agree. If your Hb has always been between 12 & 13 and you made it to 65 thats a normal blood count for you. It is certainly not low enough to get much attention. If you provide the rest of the red cell indices from a CBC with differential we can give you a more informed response. I'm referring to the Hematocrit (Hct), RDW, MCH, MCV, and presence of unusual cells such as poikilocytes, Ovalocytes & others. Read more...
