Full blood count results in uk

Posted , 3 users are following.

i had a full blood count done alongside a lot of toher bloods. All the rest wwre perfect.

My fbc was a bit out of range. This is them I live in the uk.

Haemaglobin = 13.9 or 139

WBC = 58 or 5.8

Red ccell count = 4.89

Can someone explain how far out of whack they are please? My dr doesnt want to see me until the end of September as a routing appointment so im guessing they arn't too worried, but i am sad

My red cell count always comes back a little bit off of perfect, it has for about 3 years.

    Hi. Usually FBC has more markers and results come with their ranges. In the U.K. It depends which lab tests your results what the range is. The values you have given do not look abnormal but the range is needed for this. 

    Do do you have your full FBC results with the ranges included?

    no not at the moment. i just got the score but when i looked at the ranges they didnt look out of range so im not sure what the dr means, but as i say she said to make just a routine appointment end of September.

    You need you're full set of FBC results. Thus includes what you've listed, MCV, MCH, MCHC, RDW, HCT, MPV, PLATELETS. Then you're WBC are broken down further to LYMPH, MINO, NEUTRO, EOS BASO. Go into you're surgery and ask for you're results they have to give them to you. Then post the results. 

    In in the meantime it's clear that it isn't anything urgent so not to worry.

    From what you posted your Blood counts are in normal range. As said below this is not a CBC which is a Complete Blood Count as you only posted a small sample of the CBC test. WBC RBC and Hemoglobin. So looking good so far. PLT (Platelet) count should be from 150k to 450k. Blood counts vary and change often so as long as there isn't a steady trend of them lowering, or WBC increasing there really isn't any concern. best of luck.
