Complete blood count lab values

Common Questions and Answers about Complete blood count lab values


Avatar f tn I had a complete blood count with differential yesterday that showed normal values for all ranges. Is this sufficient to show no HIV or is that a separate test?
10947 tn?1281404252 With this tracker, you can track the results of various lab tests, including White Blood Cell (WBC) Count, Red Blood Cell (RBC) Count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, iron levels, total iron-binding capacity (TIBC), and transferrin saturation. This tracker can be used on its own or in conjunction with the other trackers, such as Hepatitis C, HIV, Thyroid, and Kidney Disease. You can access the CBC Tracker here: .
550622 tn?1247656720 An elevated MPV is usually accompanied by analytes of the complete blood count being out of reference range. Slightly elevated or decreased MPV values if the rest of the CBC is normal are usually not significant. Values 15% out of range should be referred to a physician to determine cause. Your numbers are so slightly out of range, they more than likely mean nothing is amiss. Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn What were her other lab parameters? Do you know what her white blood cell count or platelet count were? Also, what kind of symptoms does she have - how was this initially detected in her?
Avatar m tn Hello~The fever and bitter taste in your mouth cause me to wonder if you have a hidden infection. When you had your blood work, did they do a CBC (Complete blood count) I am wondering what you white blood cell is, they could very well be elevated. You could also be very low in vitamin B12 and the other B vitamins. I would suggest a good, high potency B complex along with a good multi-mineral.
651681 tn?1384872629 i have this as well. i think it means that there is a large variation in size of your red blood cells? i think if the other values (rbc count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, etc) were out of whack, they'd be more concerned. were you other values within range? maybe you need more iron in your diet? i guess on any given day our blood work can change depending on our stresses, exposures, diets, etc. i have high rdw and low hemoglobin.
1037184 tn?1252781679 I am negative for both and would like to remain so. The lab values on his HSV 2 test were quite high. My question is do your lab values fluctuate or go up when my partner is in an outbreak? An example of what I am asking would be similar to a case where someone has some sort of bacterial infection and their white count goes up.
Avatar f tn my doctor just said because of blood test values that it was "recent" all info about blood lab values is getting more and more confusing. since first outbreak i assumed it had to be 2 to 20 before?
1287128 tn?1331134538 So i haven't heard from the doc yet but got my lab results via a voicemail from the clinic.. i've been feeling totally crappy lately and my doc did a CBC my red blood cell count was 3.9 my white blood cell count was 11.2 my hemoglobin was 11.8 i can't seem to find much on normal labs for pregnant women. thanks in advance for any answers.
Avatar f tn What they do is give you a value which comes from a analyzer that gives the white blood cell count and red blood cell count, platelet count etc. and if this is abnormal they do a manual count which is under the microscope and they read the number of cells. The normal range for lab tests can vary depending on their control values and type of instruments they use.
Avatar n tn RBC count measures the number of red blood cells in a volume of blood and usually ranges from 4.2 to 5.9 million cells per cmm. RBC decreases with anemia; increased when too many are made and with fluid loss due to diarrhea, dehydration, burns. Hgb measures the amount of hemoglobin molecule in a volume of blood and usually measures 12 to 16grams per deciliter (one-hundredth of a liter) for women. Hgb mirrors RBC results.
Avatar n tn MCHC is a HGB. reading in the RBC...this is an HCV forum. Do you have HCV?
Avatar m tn Yes, bleeding can cause a drop in CBC values and once the bleeding stops these values improve. Low triglycerides with normal or high cholesterol can be due to poor eating habits, hyperthyroidism, malabsorption syndromes (including Crohn’s and most likely cause in your case), as a side effect of certain drugs (like nicotinic acid, clofibrate), etc.
Avatar n tn The HIV test is totally different from the test that you had. Your test sounds like a complete blood count. If you feel the need for being tested for HIV, please, by all means, ask your doctor to please have you tested. It is a specialized test and must be marked "HIV" for the test requested. Hope this helped. HIV means you carry the virus; full-blown AIDS is the disease itself. There are many folks living with HIV who never develop full-blown aids.
1084115 tn?1385228589 Compensated or decompensated cirrhosis is not determined only by blood tests. Certainly no one blood value tells the whole story and peoples normal blood values varies between individuals. Decompensation usually is determined by the various obvious symptoms of the complications of cirrhosis. Ascites, etc. The complications from decompensated cirrhosis can be life-threatening but can usually be controlled in the early stage of decompensation with treatments.
Avatar f tn I spoke with my specialist (the old one, dec 5th I meet with new one) briefly on the phone today and asked her when and what the lab tests r. She told me the viral load is Wk 4, 12 and then at the end if I'm UND at week 12. If I'm detected at all at wk 12 the treatment stops. She said I get my CBC every 2 weeks for the first 2mos and then monthly after that. This all doesn't seem right.
