Avatar n tn Hey I just had a Complete body count test today after 5 months of possible exposure to HIV (vaginal sex with no protection) The doctor told me everything was normal and there is nothing to worry about, white blood cells were normal So does this tell me that I didnt get HIV??? like is it enough for me to calm down and be sure that I'm ok ? not to forget that my last exposure was 5 months ago ! is it enough time?
Avatar m tn This was not a urine test this was a blood test. I just want to know if your WBC count would be up with any infection, or if there is possible to have an infection and not have a elevated WBC count.
Avatar n tn Platelets are also are very good as are liver enzymes. As to the rest, except for the blood count stuff, most values should be in the normal range which I don't have in front of me. You could check that yourself on your printout and I'm sure your doctor will bring anything up out of the ordinary.

457438 tn?1302072007 I consulted the Doctor again today because I don’t get complete relief from fever and cough. He advice to do blood and urine test. After test my Platelet count is 2.8 Lakhs and TC is 4400 CELLE/CUMS. He checked the test result and retest after two days. He said that PC and TC level are low. May be Dengue/Viral fever. Can u advice me?
Avatar f tn Hi, I had a blood test conducted back in August and according to the printout my red blood cell count is slightly elevated at 4.94 (normal range 3.80-4.80). This is the second time I've known this to be high yet my doctor doesn't seem to be worried about this. Also my blood viscosity/plasma has been high as well. Nothing else is abnormal apart from the fact that my TSH and Free T4 has been swinging in and out of range. In May my FT4 was 10.9 (10-23) and my TSH was 22 (0.27-4.
Avatar n tn 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. I stopped taking it when I started the Accutane and now I really annoyed of all the worrying I'm doing. The accutane is working great, BTW. I'm 27 female in great shape, don't drink or smoke.
Avatar n tn And then wondering if they scope through the throat for the varicies can they just add an extension cord to complete the journey to the colon and if the scope makes it to the other end can they pull it back and forth like a magician who stitiches his fingers together. Ahh the wonders of modern medicine.
Avatar m tn Hi , I have the below abnormal counts in blood test, Kindly suggest --Complete Blood Count test: White Blood Cells 9.30 Hemoglobin : 19.30 g/dL Hematocrit :54.00% Mean Corpuscular Hb:32.
Avatar n tn Diagnosing chlamydia, gonorrhea, HPV/warts, vaginal infections, and most other STDs require taking samples from the infected areas. For the STDs diagnosed by blood test, the health care provider has to ask for the test by name. Blood tests to check on general health--like a complete blood count or blood chemistry profile--don't pick up any STD.
Avatar m tn Thank you very much, also you say don't stop viread, but my doctor only gave me 30 days worth of viread and he told me to do a blood test. I did, week later I called to find out for the test results and the Doc/assistance told me the results, and she gave me an appointment date to see the doctor which is next week thursday, mind you all this time since my blood test date 6/12/2010 I was not given more viread nor refil. since i stop viread till my doc sees me will be almost more than two weeks.
Avatar m tn A standard PCR takes about 3-4 days, but it depends on the lab and the type of PCR. Sometimes it takes longer if the blood is drawn at a hosptial lab as opposed to a national lab. National labs such as Labcorp, has a sensitive PCR called QuantaSure which can detect HCV down to 2 IU/mL and it takes 3 weeks for results to return whereas Quest Diagnostics has a PCR called Heptimax with a sensitivty down to 5 IU/mL and it takes about a week I think.
Avatar f tn I last had a physical 2 years ago and the blood test showed everything was within range. Yesterday I had a blood test done at the lab and got my results (my Dr appt is on Monday morning but I'm rather worried). Everything is within range except for my WBC count (2.9) and Neutrophil counts (also very low). I have no fever, but have got 2 or 3 canker sores in my mouth, maybe as a result of a weakened immune system. Is a WBC count of 2.9 a major concern?
Avatar f tn Why did you have the blood test in the first place? Isn't the doctor treating you? If you are dizzy, you could have a sinus infection. If it were me, I would go back to the doctor and find out what is causing it. Good luck to you.
Avatar m tn I looked at your post with fresh eyes this morning and a high WBC count can be due to a lot of things. What was the value of the WBC count? Normal is about 5- 9,500 depending on the lab. If it is slightly high like 12,000 or so then it probably is a infection. If it is really high it can be a lot of other things. What are your symptoms?
Avatar f tn I had to go back this month - I have Adult ADD to refill my prescription and he took another blood test and this time the WBC was off the chart and the Neutrophil count was extremely high. So, the office called and I had to go back to the office the next day - the only symptoms I have notice is extreme fatigue and a chronic sore throat (drainage) which I contribute to the lovely state of Texas and it's spring/summer allergies since my strep culture came back negative.
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 The Blood chemistry test, also known as the Complete Metabolic Profile (CMP), measures some of the most important chemicals required and produced by your body, to function properly, Blood chemicals like those produced by the liver, as well as nutritional elements such as vitamins, proteins, fats, and sugar. A CMP can involve dozens of different tests, but the tests as ordered usually measure many chemicals.
315094 tn?1201393650 But if not, at least try for a week 8 test, and of course, the 12-week test is a must. Blood should be drawn before the injection and as close as possible. So, for example, blood for your week 8 test should be drawn the day before your 9th injection.
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 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 f tn And the 'which week is it' thing can be muddling - the interferon injection starts the week, so you count it as complete just before you do your next one. (Think back to your first injection and you'll remember that you still had your whole week of riba ahead before you could say the week had gone by.) With viral load testing, it's best to do the labwork the day before your injection or the day of your injection but before your injection.
Avatar n tn After 3 weeks went to see a doctor who ordered the HIV test again along with Complete blood count. I came out negative and CBC showed up high level of neutrophil (76%) and WBC and low lymphocytes (17.3%). The doctor prescribed antibiotic and told me not to worry cause he told it was clearly a bacterial infection and he found lymphadnopathy . Now after a 2 weeks of the tests, I dont know, I sometimes feel veeery slight pain around my joints.
Avatar n tn I had several blood tests taken, including the Complete Blood Count and the CA 125 test and a pregnancy test (along with an HIV test). Everything came back negative/normal except for my CBC, in which my white blood cell count was low. My doctor scheduled me for a CAT scan which I will take next Wednesday, along with a second round of ultrasounds next Friday.
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.
