MCV 97.3, MCH 32.6, Platelet Count 69, White Blood Cell Count 3.8, Macrocytosis 1+  AB,  AST/SGOT 223, Alkoline Phos 235, Alt/SGPT 147, Total Bilirubin 2.4.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

The liver enzymes are raised. A normal platelet count is 150 or higher, value of 69 is low. White Blood Cell Count, normal Adult Range is 3.8 - 10.8 thous/mcl, yours is on the lower range. What was the Hb and RBC count? The report showed decreased production of blood cells. Low counts can occur when there is bone marrow failure, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, diseases of liver  and due to certain medications. Please discuss this with your doctor am sure he will provide further assistance.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
