Hi,

Please post details of the test you had.

If it was a urinalysis, it would indicate that the leauk you have posted here is referring to leukocytes. However, it is not reported as moderate, but in numbers.

Leukocytes in urine can indicate kidney or bladder infection or inflammation.

Do post a few additional symptoms for a more specific response.

Hi,

A RDW width above 14.5 is considered high.

RDW is red cell width distribution and is a test which checks the size of red cells. A high variation in the red cell size is reported as a high RDW.

High RDW can be an indication of liver disease, hemolytic anemia, iron deficiency anemia, vitamin B12 deficiency, thalassemia, etc.

The RDW values are correlated with the mean corpuscular volume to obtain an idea of which factor is causing the RDW to rise.

regards
