? about cbc
Mar 18, 2010
Went to dr to get blood checked for anemia. CBC came back with the following flagged.

WBC 11.4-high--normal range 3.1-9.2
MCV 97.8 high--normal range 82.6-95.8
MCH 33.0 high--normal range 27.9-32.0
PLT 155 low--normal range 186-380
#LYMPH 5.0 high--normal range 0.8-3.2

everything else including iron and ferritin were normal.
Chief complaint is fatigue and low grade fevers. No significant weight loss, or unplanned have been on a diet. Have night sweats but also menopausal.

Of course when you look up LYMPH you get leukemia. She said not worried about plt count unless it goes below 100.
I know some of these are just a touch above or below normal, but am not sure what values would be flagged or a concern. Any info?
Thanks

An elevated lymph count also indicates a viral infection which would be supported by your elevated WBC's. Your lymph results are only slightly above normal.

It seems that your body is fighting off some sort of infection, so your symptoms of fatigue and low grade fevers do make sense.

Make sure you're taking a good multivitamin,eating well balanced meals, staying well hydrated and getting enought rest.
