hi Bob and crwriter,
they always tell me as I leave...no new s good news and/or unremarkable.
these labs get me somehwat confused with so many abbrviations.
so it seems if these are 'anucleated' = good ?
, do they typicallyy do a smear when orders are CBC ?
or is that m ade specific?
my last labs had 0.07 (normal value 0.00-0.00) NRBC# .... is that 7 in 100, or how many?
also, i have tried find what NR/W means and can not, do you know? ... this was high also at 1.00 (normal 0.00 ) .... and MPV a smidgin low at 9.5 (normal 9.6)
My BILI T haas creeped up some 2.1 (normal 0.0-1.3)
and what is IG% mean? i had 0.7 (normal 0.0-0.6)
I guess I will bring this all up.
I have more draw done soon in another lab with a different doc and want to make sure it is the same tests done.
what would any of this mean, any input is helpful so i have a little better understanding at my appt
I think Bob is saying anucleated is a good thing. :)
oh darn - another thing my doctor ignored. Why did I go to this man?
RBCs should be "anucleated" as in "without a nucleus." Nucleated RBCs are abnormal in a peripheral blood smear beyond neonates. If Red Blood Cells in a peripheral blood smear show up nucleated you need to have this investigated by a hematologist/oncologist. Nucleated RBCs are very immature RBCs that should not be seen outside to bone marrow and may be a marker of significant disease.
