    What do you mean came back with 3 markers only? Is there other results that where in range?

    Your red blood cell width is low which could indicate anaemia if the rest of the bloods agree with it. Post the rest of your results if you have them.

    I am not a doctor. However I would recommend you ask for your vitamin d checked. Low vitamin d can cause low phosphate. Low vitamin b12, iron, ferritin, folate can all cause tiredness. Plus you have a decent amount of white blood cells which might be your normal or might be raised because it's fighting an infection. So a repeat FBC.

    Hi Kenneth - these 3 results are all only the tiniest bit outside normal limits, and none are concerning as a cause for fatigue anyway. There are many causes for fatigue, including virus infections (most common, but unusual to go on for months), anemia, poor nutrition, sleep apnea, allergies, cardiac or lung problems. If you are still having fatigue, you need to see your doctor again.
