Hi
Thanks for writing to the forum!

Your RDW is within normal range of 10-15. The WBC is marginally high and so also platelets are high. Iron deficiency can be a cause and so also bone marrow problems. Underactive spleen as in celiac disease, certain inflammatory disorders like rheumatoid arthritis too give a similar picture. You need to consult a hematologist.
Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this without examining and further details. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Thank you. What type of questions should I ask when I go to the hematologist. Can I ask for certain test, if so can you tell me which ones I should ask for. Thanks again

Hi
Thanks for keeping me posted!
You can ask the same question—why this kind of blood picture and what are the possibilities. The tests will automatically follow to diagnose the problem.
