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 n tn About white blood count (and other blood tests):
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 The WBC count is the total white count. Then they do a microscopic count of 100 cells and take a percentage for a total of 100% so your other cells were a tiny bit high which through off the percentage of other cells. The Eosinophils are present sometimes with an allergy or parasitic infection. But they are not that high. Same with the Lymphocytes it was only a tiny bit high. You could have been fighting a virus or allergy. Is your fever and pulse rate normal now?
Avatar n tn Lab tests come in many varieties and most are ordered under a group name, for example CBC (complete blood count) has tests for many of the major blood components such as RBCs, hemoglobin, WBCs, etc. All these tests are important to evaluate the state of a person's immune system and the efficiency of oxygen transport amoung many other things. Another group of tests that are of particular interest to HCV patients are the Liver Function Tests (LFTs).

Avatar f tn I am still having difficulties understanding this. My question is, would a complete blood count display levels of HSV1 or 2? I have had a cbc in the past and have never been returned with abnormal counts of anything. I have not yet received my test results. Thank you.

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.
