This is blood in urine, right?
I did notice that the Red Blood Cell count was very low.

[quote]Normal generic range of Red Blood cells for female: 4.2 to 5.4 million cells/mcl

Because men have more muscle, the regular normal range for them are
male: 4.7 to 6.1 million cells/mcl[/quote]
notice they talk about 2 nucleated red blood cells in one of the samples, those are immature red blood cells?

I notice that they were checking the reticulocyte count.

[quote][b]Reticulocyte Count Definition: A test that measures the percentage of reticulocytes (slightly immature red blood cells) in blood.[/b]

A special stain can be used to identify reticulocytes, because they contain remnants of RNA. Fully mature red blood cells are terminally-differentiated cells lacking nuclei and nucleic acids. The number of reticulocytes in the blood is proportional to their rate of synthesis and release by the bone marrow. The body will respond to bleeding or hemolytic anemia (breakdown of red blood cells) by an increased rate of red blood cell synthesis under normal circumstances.[/quote] I noticed on one person's hematology report that the 'retic' was normal at 0.5%-2% So is 34 a count or is that the percentage?

I only studied this chemical. . . and people known and suspected to be harmed by it. I'm not a medical person.
