Announcing the new Complete Blood Count (CBC) Tracker
We're pleased to announce the Complete Blood Count (CBC) Tracker, the thirteenth in a series of Personal Health Applications (PHAs) geared towards helping our members keep track of health metrics, symptoms, treatments, test results and events.
With this tracker, you can track the results of various lab tests, including White Blood Cell (WBC) Count, Red Blood Cell (RBC) Count, hemoglobin, hematocrit, iron levels, total iron-binding capacity (TIBC), and transferrin saturation. This tracker can be used on its own or in conjunction with the other trackers, such as Hepatitis C, HIV, Thyroid, and Kidney Disease.
You can access the CBC Tracker here: http://www.medhelp.org/user_trackers/gallery/cbc .
We plan on adding more functionality to the CBC Tracker over the next few weeks and would love to get your suggestions and feedback. If you want to track a specific lab, symptom or event, let us know. Please post your comments in the MedHelp Suggestions community, accessible via My Shortcuts.
It looks like all your labs except for WBC seem to fall in line with almost normal ranges. On your lab report, does it say what units they measured WBC count in? Typically WBC is measured in cells/mcL, and that is the unit supported by the trackers. If your lab is doing something different, please let us know.
Here is more information on standard CBC tests: http://www.medhelp.org/Medical-Dictionary/Terms/1/003642.htm
If you would like us to help you figure out your labs, we'd be happy to create a conversion chart or work with you to convert the numbers. Unfortunately, it's really difficult to do so if we don't know what units your lab uses. Feel free to add the units here for each of the labs that have an issue and we'll see what we can do. Thanks!
So,,, what you and Marcia are saying is to drop the (point ...) on all three add a zero and thats my readings......... wbc 1.9=1900 rbc 3.32=3320 platelets 102=1020 , Putting it in something I can understand.... lol!!! I never was good at math!!!! And am even worse now that I am old and kinda brain foggy.......... :) I did not even understand the link that was given....... If I could convert it on excel I could probably do that......... Thanks for the help...
I think the easiest way is to just time the amount by 1000. 1.9 X 1000= 1900.
It's not about just adding a zero. It's about timing it by 1000. If you have a .86 it would become 860. So just grab a calculator and x 1000. It's easier to have it do it for you, than having to do it through brain fog heads. :-)
