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 Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! A complete blood count gives information of total WBC, RBC, platelet, and is generally helpful in diagnosing anemia as it gives various parameters for that and infection, low platelet count as in bleeding cases and cancers like leukemia can be suspected. Some labs do not give reports on phone and others may do so. Also if some values are out of range, then some labs are prefer not to divulge the information unless a doctor has taken a look.

Avatar f tn //www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/complete-blood-count#1 I'd follow back up with the doctor to rule that out with further testing so you can see that for sure. And then ask what next step is to find out the cause. Let me know what happens!!
Avatar n tn Can a flu shot and a hep. vaccine 6 days before a complete blood count effect the results?
Avatar n tn Reason, I want to take Accutane again for my adult acne and it requires pregnancy, chem 8, and CBC testing first. The CBC came back low white blood cell count. I wasn't told how low, probably because I didn't ask, and don't know which white cells are low, but I've been researching online and found that the Antibotic Doxycycline 100mg my doctor put me on 30 days prior to the test can cause a drop in the WBC.
Avatar n tn You need to call him back and have him fax a copy of the bloodwork to you or you need to go and pick it up and post it on this thread. My WHite Blood Count was 1.5 and ANC was at .5 Monday and and has hovered around .6 all throughout treatment (I am on week #40) even though I take Neupogen every week to keep it up. I have never reduced my interferon dose. What week are you on? I would wait until you know what the ANC (absolute neutrophils) are before you dose reduce.
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.
Avatar m tn I'm working in Manila and went to see a doctor in the area. They have done complete blood count with platelet count and urinalysis. Everything looks normal except for the Eosinophils. It’s reading high at .05, where normal value supposed to be 0.00 to .04. I'm very concerned about this. What does it mean?
Avatar f tn Hello, Last week I was diagnosed with slight anemia and have been requested to return to the lab for another CBC because my white blood cells were "profoundly low". I am a 27 year old female who is average in every way. I guess my question is what are the possibilities for this blood cell count to be low? I've read a billion websites and their answers all seem pretty scary. What is the next step that the doctors would do if the count was still low after 1 month?
Avatar m tn Yes, a CBC stands for complete blood count. It looks at your red and white blood cells and platelets. You can stop by the doctors office and request a copy. It should show you what levels are considered normal and then also show you what levels you really are. It sounds like the doctor thought there was nothing to be concerned about other than a bacterial infection. Hope you feel better soon.
Avatar f tn I just had a blood test, and my white blood cell count is 18.2. what can this be a symton of? Do I need to take care of this immediately? I get very tired very quickly and get dizzy if move too fast.

Avatar m tn Hi, How are you? What symptoms are present? A complete blood count or CBC test is a broad screening test to check for disorders such as anemia, infection, and many other diseases including blood cancers. It measures the amount of various types of blood cells in a sample of the blood. Abnormal results may require further tests and evaluation. It is best that you discuss the results of the diagnostic tests (correlating with the symptoms present) with your doctor to ease any worries.
Avatar m tn It is like when you have a fever and trying to find out what disease you have because you have a fever. You would need more information such as when they do a complete blood count, which type of white cells are high. There are many types of white cells that are all counted in a total WBC count. There are neutrophils, eosinophils, basophils, lymphocytes, and each have a normal percentage. They may check this next time if you count is still high.
144210 tn?1273092382 Its funny how a drop in hemaglobin affects people so dramatically. If you are used to having a certain red blood cell count, even a small loss, like three points, can make you feel really terrible even though you aren't at transfusion level. Hopefully the procrit will get you back go a level that makes you feel better soon! Your wbc count is low but it can get lower, unfortunately.
Avatar f tn The number of white blood cells (WBCs) in the blood. The WBC is usually measured as part of the CBC (complete blood count). White blood cells are the infection-fighting cells in the blood. There are different types of white blood cells, including neutrophils (polymorphonuclear leukocytes; PMNs), band cells (slightly immature neutrophils), T-type lymphocytes (T cells), B-type lymphocytes (B cells), monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils.
Avatar n tn A blood count (CBC) measures your blood cells, not chemicals in the blood. Tests may be ordered individually since some insurances such as Medicare require a specific reason for each test. Some important tests are discussed below. LIVER Total Protein (TP) - A rough measure of the total amount of serum protein in your body. Protein measurements can reflect not only liver disease, but nutritional state, kidney disease, and many other conditions as well.
1327032 tn?1288844355 Most of us are monitored at 4 week intervals, minimum. This includes complete blood count, comprehensive metabolic panel, and some doctors, including mine, did monthly viral load tests. They should also monitor thyroid periodically; every three months is generally sufficient, unless you have existing issues. Thyroid function can be checked with TSH testing. If you have problems with Hgb, neuts, platelets, semi-monthly labs might be a good idea.
Avatar f tn If you have your doctor do a simple antibody test to check for signs of infection or a CBC (Complete Blood Count) to check for signs of anemia, you will know if she has it. Of course there are other tests that the doctors can perform as well to look for the parasite. Yes, if by some chance she does end up having the parasite it is normally treated with the drug praziquantel. If the infection is severe or involves the brain, corticosteroids may be given.
1454858 tn?1306787978 I don't recall getting a Complete Blood Count in previous pregnancies but I may have. I know they said my hemoglobin was AMAZING so perhaps that was the CBC? I honestly have no idea. But if they did check then that was done when I was 8 weeks, not 28. It's so interesting that doctors and midwives can send you for "routine labs" without really telling you what they're checking for voluntarily. If I ask they'll answer but usually they just say, "Here's your labs; go get them done.
