low RBC, WBC Neutrophil absolute & high Lymph

I am concerned about my abnormal blood test and cant see a specialist for 2 months. Can you  please share your opinion. My mother is currently diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoma and my father is 1 year in remission of CLL (Leukemia) I have had to take care of both of them and so you can imagine my concern for this blood work that I had done recently because of some unpleasant symptoms of aches, malaise and fatigue.
WBC- 3.4
RBC-3.7
Hemoglobin-8.3 low
Hematacrit-26.7 low
MCV-71.2 low
MCH-22.1 low
MCHC-31.1 low
RDW-18.5 high
Lymphs- 53 high
Neutrophils absolute-1.30 low
ANA 80 high

Hi!
I appreciate your concerns. The low hemoglobin, hematocrit and other parameters and high RDW indicate chronic anemia. Since there is associated neutropenia or low neutrophils, it is more likely to be due to Vit B12 or folate deficiency. Blood cancers result in very low or very high blood cell count. This is not yet evident in your case. While you wait to see a specialist, get a peripheral smear to see the cell types in your blood. Also, start eating healthy and ask your doctor if you can start vitamin B12, folate and iron supplements. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
