Common Questions and Answers about Complete blood count method


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?
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone has had several CBC's and had slightly elevated white blood count? The last 3-4 times in which I've had a complete blood count they notice that it's elevated but not to the point where it becomes a concern ( so the doctor says) but I still find it strange.
Avatar m tn Prior to using the substance my viral count was 385,000. The last count was 1,800. I asked my doctor to check my count again to see if the virus was zero. The doctor ran a Hepatic Panel, it did not show any thing about a viral count. Was this the right test for what I was looking for because this facility has tested me before with wrong tests. This test showed my ALT was high what does this mean and what does it point to.
Avatar n tn Are there any other signs or symptoms present? Chest x-ray, complete blood count and complete medical and physical examination is needed to help with the diagnosis. It would be best to see your doctor to rule out any differentials and to reach a complete diagnosis. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn Normally simple blood tests results like hemogram, total cell count, complete blood checkup, blood sugar, electrolytes etc are available the same day. Some times the tests are done and the report not uploaded on the computer due to technical delays. So if you do not get them by tomorrow, yes, definitely follow this up. Hope this helps. Take care!

Avatar m tn In November 2013, my heart doctor asked me a complete blood count, along with other test (cholesterol, triglycerides, etc.). Everything was normal with the red cells, but the white cells were low (4090/mm3) and there were more leucocytes (2740/mm3) than neutrophils (920/mm3). She asked me about HIV and I replied her that I have been tested twice.
Avatar n tn They can also result from autoimmune disorders, such as lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, bone marrow disorders such as leukemia, inflammation of the veins, as a side effect of certain medications, viral infections, such as EBV or Dengue and septicemia or infection in blood. A complete blood count, urine examination and a blood culture may be required to reach a diagnosis. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar m tn Hi, I am 33 years old. I dont have any smoking/drinking habits. My wife is 26 years old. She also dont have any smoking/drinking habits. We have been married for 5 years and looking for a baby. She was conceived 2 years back and miscarried in 7 weeks. We have waited for 6 months and started again for baby and still it is not going in our way. My wife has irregular periods... sometimes even 2-3 months without periods and we are in regular checkup with gynae and induce her periods.
Avatar f tn ve not got a single friend that ever had it nor did I. And it is just a tinge of blood if it does. Brown mid cycle is OLD blood and more indicative of spotting and hormonal problems. Which wounds like you may have since you have few periods and hadn't had one for the span of 2 years. Do you see a doctor for these things? You should. Unprotected sex even if you have hormonal challenges like you describe isn't wise unless you want a baby.
