Complete blood count w diff

Common Questions and Answers about Complete blood count w diff


Avatar_f_tn That is simply a complete blood count and nutrient panel. It is one of the most basic blood tests. It should test your iron levels and not just your red blood cell count. Size matters to determine anemia. So, it will count your blood cells, and it will determine cholesterol levels and iron, and your basic vitamin panels. Be sure they include your vitamin D levels.
264233_tn?1216345915 Of course, IF your retic's are ok, that argues more against the bone marrow on the red blood cell count, but you need a good hematologist to figure all of this out because this is very very complex and complicated stuff. And you need a haptimax to check for hemolysis, to tell the difference between what is bone marrow and what is riba. Here's an article on managing all three cell line reductions, including platelets, while on treatment:

Avatar_m_tn Red blood cells, which carry oxygen White blood cells, which fight infection Hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying protein in red blood cells Hematocrit, the proportion of red blood cells to the fluid component, or plasma, in your blood Platelets, which help with blood clotting Abnormal increases or decreases in cell counts as revealed in a complete blood count may indicate that you have an underlying medical condition that calls for further evaluation.
4896357_tn?1360674504 When they tell you the number is under 2, I am thinking they are referring to the complete white blood count. Carl, it is not unusual for the WBC to be under 2 on tx. In the two times I have treated, my WBC has rarely been over 2 for the entire treatment. A lot of doctors get all bent out of shape about this, but it is the absolute neutriphil count (ANC) that has more meaning, and even then, that can go as low as .5 like dee said before it becomes an issue.

522415_tn?1242941355 tramadol, darvocet, vicodin, loratab, celexa, bextra, MANY diff. anti-depressants ETC. ~~ I go 2 the dr. EVERY month for pain management. I LOVE my dr.! I've been seeing her for quite a few yrs.! And she's VERY conservative about giving pain meds. SEE................................ the thing is MOST dr's WON'T give pain meds for fibro. INCLUDING my dr.!! She prescribes my pain meds for my torn up spine, neck & head. The herniated disc i have ARE pinching nerves etc.!
Avatar_n_tn My doctor also gave me a prescription medicine called Atarax, which only makes me drowsy and doesn't help the itchy feeling. Any suggestions? Btw, I've taken blood tests to see if there is anything wrong but everything came out fine.
Avatar_n_tn what do the following blood tests reveal ? 1.ana screen w/rflx to titer 2. cbc w/diff w/plt 3. hep b surf Ag w/rfx confirm 4. hep c antibody 5. immunofixation 6.
Avatar_n_tn When I saw thick red blood coming out instead of semen, I freaked out. I had a complete checkup recently. My PSA is normal, prostate is not swollen, blood pressure normal, no cholesterol, blood chemistry is fine. I don't smoke and drink only occasionally. I am about 10-15 pounds overweight but that's not unusual for a man my age. I don't exercise enough but I do watch what I eat. In every occurence, the pattern is the same: blood in my semen and more often than not, small blood clots.
Avatar_n_tn I've been reading what every1 has been writing and its helping me. I've been trying to find out whats going on with me. It started wen I noticed some spottin a week before my period was due, (mine are always on schedule & very heavy) that lasted a few days & stopped. I feel like im pregnant & so i took 4 home pregnancy tests all came out positive. I went to the dr & 2 urine tests came out negative.
Avatar_n_tn But anyways 2 weeks prior to me uro appt. I had a Hiv antibody test w/rflxs, Anti nuclear Antibodies test(ANA), and a Complete blood count w/diff w/platelet at 9 weeks 5days. Would all these test be a conclusive negative result or should I go back for another test also take into consideration I slept with a prositute but i did use a condom.
Avatar_f_tn Not to worry! MPV (mean platelet volume) on a CBC (complete blood count) is one of the indicators of platelet size. The "normal" range of 9.8-12.7 is where most people will fall, but numbers slightly out of that range (like yours of 13.8) are for the most part in the normal spectrum. These numbers can vary from test to test and day to day with hydration status, normal variability in the lab results themselves, etc.
Avatar_n_tn I would have expected as starters for bloodwork to have been done such as a Complete Blood count w/ Diff and a Chemistry Panel and maybe even a precautionary chest and/or abd x-ray. You didn't mention which side the pain goes around. If it goes from midback around the right to the front, that can be a symptoms of gallstones or a nonfunctioning gall bladder, the latter of which won't show up on an xray.
Avatar_f_tn Iron Results = 77 Normal TIBC Results = 406 Normal Ferritin Results = 8 Low Folate Results = 22.23 Normal Vitamin B12 Results = 476 Normal White blood count Results = 8.2 Normal Red blood count Results = 4.1 Normal Hemoglobin Results = 12.2 Normal Platelet Count Results = 100 Low Eosinophils % Results = 3.
Avatar_n_tn Hi, Sorry you are going through this. One normal MRI doesn't count our MS just so you are aware. It can take time for lesions to show up. There is something going on and some of what you said is going on sounds like it could be your fibro but others don't. Just keep working at it until you find some answers. There is obviously something going on so keep at your doctor until they find you answers.
Avatar_n_tn Early May - ///blood test - all okay = comprehensive metabolin panel, TSH, blood count with platelet and partial diff., Sed rate, Antinuclear antibodies, qualitative rheumatoid factors./// Late May - heartburn kicked in followed by Gynecomastia. Muscular sensation of movement went away for about a week. ///Chest X-ray and EKG both looked good/// June - Constant achy/tired feelings in arms and occasionally similar feelings in legs kicked in and has been with me for most of the time.
8221281_tn?1397574572 Should I request the Dermatologist to repeat the CBC w Diff, CRP and ESR (three weeks since last blood work) My ESR was good but my CRP was high then. Are there other blood labs recommended to add for this? My thyroid is fine and this is not thyroid related anyway. I am tagging this as subacute since the condition has lasted more than 40 days. Any responses appreciated. I realize that this forum is not a substitute for professional medical advice.
280418_tn?1306329510 From what I have read, the blood-brain barrier theory makes complete sense. Why would a bacteria, like the one that causes Lyme, just behave and not invade other tissues, etc when the bacteria is in the SAME family (spirochete) as syphilis?? They didn't know that penicillin would cure syphilis. Neurosyphilis was a nasty illness to witness. What makes this spirochete any different? Speaking of it loving the peripheral nervous system - I have peripheral neuropathy, go figure. 2.

Avatar_f_tn (Dr, will I be able to count very well after I complete my Meds? Why, yes, Pat, you will be. Oh, good 'cause I never could count!
1129774_tn?1279835362 No, RBC would typically be part of a CBC or complete blood count. What you should ask for if you want to know if low iron is causing some fatigue is blood iron and ferritin levels and T.I.B.C.. (TIBC stands for total iron binding capacity, which tells how much iron your body is binding onto and if toward the high end tells you your body is really needing whatever iron you have available. If your blood is highly saturated with iron, your T.I.B.C.
Avatar_m_tn If you haven't been tested for a complete blood count or blood sugar it would be good if you don't have any of the other issues I mentioned. The root canal that you didn't need was the doctors fault and not yours so it won't cause any problems as long as it didn't get infected. Hope this helps.
116701_tn?1210262764 My doctor says the counts go up and down and not to worry about the variations and that was before I started treatment. What viral load count is too high and how quick will the damage occur?. I've had the hep C since 1977 (transfussion) and my health has been excellent through the years. Additionally, I had gone through 16 weeks of interferon in 1996 but it no affect on the virus. Now I am on Pegasus.
Avatar_n_tn You need to go see your doctor and get a full check up complete with blood work. After 10 days you should start to feel better physically. What are describing could still be withdrawal but again, after 10 days I would not play with it. Mentally it is a life long battle, as you have been told, For that I suggest aftercare to get to the root of the problems.
Avatar_n_tn Somewhere on there it should say CBC with auto diff - or CBC with manual Diff. Under that heading you should have stuff like WBC (white blood cells) RBC (red blood cells) HGB, etc. You want to know these values. Or you at least want to know SOMEONE knows these values. You said the first one was a liver panel, so you had to go back. What was the second, if not a CBC? Again, please be sure someone is watching your CBC.
Avatar_f_tn Hi Jenny, The first time I had hormonal blood tests done about a year ago, all the blood tests "looked" normal. The FSH was 6.67. But no one paid attention to the E2 level which was 69. Apparently an increased E2 level artifically suppresses the FSH level. E2 levels are supposed to be less than 50. Well my clinic is the famed FPNC in the Bay Area.
