Common Questions and Answers about Complete blood count rdw

Avatar m tn You can really tell from a complete blood count what type of infection you have (as said above). It does show a slight increase in your WBC count so you are fighting some type of infection. The RDW is high as well which just shows there is a variety of cell types. Sometimes this can mean iron deficiency anemia but it isn't too bad since your Hemoglobin is normal. The more important question is what are your symtoms and how long have you had them?
Avatar n tn What does the rest of your complete blood count look like? How are you feeling and do you have any symptoms? The first sign of B12 deficiency is tingling the fingers and hands. Also, fatigue. Did you have your iron, or ferritin drawn as well or anything else?
Avatar f tn I recently got a copy of my full blood count results which shows the following abnormalities: Red blood count (RBC) - HI - 5.09 Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) - LO - 81 Mean corpusc. haemoglobin (MCH) - LO - 25.7 Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) - HI - 14.
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 this is a normal CBC or complete blood count. It has nothing to do with HIV testing.
Avatar m tn Since there is associated neutropenia or low neutrophils, it is more likely to be due to Vit B12 or folate deficiency. Blood cancers result in very low or very high blood cell count. This is not yet evident in your case. While you wait to see a specialist, get a peripheral smear to see the cell types in your blood. Also, start eating healthy and ask your doctor if you can start vitamin B12, folate and iron supplements. Take care!
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 ve been experiencing headaches (intensity and location keep changing but mostly at top of head, forehead and become more intense at night), weakness, tiredness, restlessness and mental exhaustion for 2 weeks. I went to a GP and he ordered a Complete Blood Count test. It may be a few weeks before I might be able to visit my doctor again, so I thought maybe somebody on this forum could take a look at my test reports and see if there's anything suspicious or urgent?
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 n tn everthing is negative such as nitrite,blood bili.ketones.but on a complrtr blood cell count I have a RDWhigh15.o(Ref Range 11.5-14.
Avatar f tn Would a white cell count of nearly 16,000 with a neutrophil [absolute] count of nearly 13,000 be a cause for serious alarm? Have no symptoms (cold, flu, fever, etc.). Red blood counts are normal except for RDW of 12.7 which is very close to the lower limit normal of 12.9.
Avatar f tn those would be a good start. Also the RDW is usually run with a CBC (Complete blood count) if that is in range it is normal. But it sounds like she does have some kind of anemia with her ferritin that high. Also the CBC is important to see if her white blood cells are very high like 20,000 instead of under 10,000. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn RDW measures the width and variation of the red blood cells. If there were evidence of iron deficiency anemia or decrease of vitamin B12 then the red blood cells would be usually wider or increase. The MCV is the true measurement for deficiencies. The White blood cells are the different Leukocyte count which all of them vary, depending on the type. Suggest asking your MD about the results.
3211536 tn?1359385569 (MCV), is a measure of the average red blood cell size that is reported as part of a standard complete blood count. The MCV is calculated by dividing the total volume of packed red blood cells (also known as hematocrit) by the total number of red blood cells. The resulting number is then multiplied by 10. The red blood cells get packed together when they are spun around at high speeds in a device called a centrifuge.
2061362 tn?1353279518 Here are a couple of links that explain the complete blood count test results and what the results may mean. I think the first link is the best, but the other one offers some information too. The first one has some very good, concise information in table form including the causes of abnormal results: http://labtestsonline.org/understanding/analytes/cbc/tab/test http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003657.
