    Low Blood 11.3 Low MCH 26.5 and High RDW 16.3 Anemia.

    Low Blood 11.3 Low MCH 26.5 and High RDW 16.334 year old Mother of 3

    Low Blood 11.3 Low MCH 26.5 and High RDW 16.3 (Report attached)I didnt see the attachment so i am doing it again. (If it doesnt attach then I guess I cant upload a PDF)

    Low Blood 11.3 Low MCH 26.5 and High RDW 16.3 (Report attached)Okay. ( I posted it again with the corrections and I posted the Result)
    I went to the DR for my yearly exam and went to quest the same day to get my blood work done on 9/30

    Went to get my Blood Work results and they were good except for my hemoglobin numbers.

    My Hemoglobin was 11.4 I think the minimum was 11.5 or Hemocrit was good it was not it bold

    My Dr told me to take Iron pills and sent me to take the test again to make sure my iron was low. So i went and I took the test. same day I went to take the 2nd test

    My Iron came back like 52.. which shows that my iron isnt low. but the points can go much much higher. but 50 somthing wasnt low the DR said.
    my Ferr was 15...
    Hemaglobin was 11.3
    Hemocrit 34.2

    So she said its not my iron.

    "I" did notice that my Hemocrit 34.2 and it was 35.0 when took the test on 10/7

    She told me that I can stop taking the iron since my iron was okay and she was going to send me take another blood test to see if I have Thalmanemia trait (spelled wrong).

    I asked her what happens if that comes back negative and I dont have that. She said i would have to see a blood specialist to see why my blood is 11.3 and anemic

    I asked her can she check my blood level from last year from when I went. She said sure.

    She checked it and my blood level was 11.9 last year which isnt low.. but still kinda close but not low. not sure if .2 is a lot when it comes to numbers.

    Then she said well I want you to take the iron and lets see if that will bring it up a little. since your blood was not low last year.

    She gave me the referral to take the blood test in 30 days to see if it went up and to see if I have the Thalanemia.

    I called my aunty when I left the DR she advised to just go now and check it to see if I have it and get it out the way and be diagnosed etc.

    So I just walked over to Quest and got the test donen since I had the referral. Even though the DR sait to wait til 30 days.

    I called the DR and part of the Blood test came back and my Blood was still was 11.4 but i didnt ask what the Hemocrit was. he said the other part was not in yet. and I should have it by Tomorrow

    I have 3 kids if I had Thalmanemia I would have known, if I am not mistaken, that is tested along with Sickle Cell, which i dont have the trait for.

    My blood is always low when I am pregnant. In 2008-2009 my level was 9.6 yes low low low. I dont know if they went as deep as checking my iron level. But I was on iron pills... Hey 11.4 sounds a lot better than 9.6 :-) Thought i would add some humor to my worry.

    Experts. Can you help me with this one. . What do you think it could be?
    How long does it take for my blood level to move up.

    THE NUMBERS (My numbers were good except for what I highlighted)

    I went in the car and got the results.. These are my exact numbers.

    White 6.1
    Hemoglobn 11.3 LOW
    Hemocrit 34.2 LOW
    MCV 80.2
    MCH 26.5 LOW
    MCHC 33.1
    RDW 16.3 HIGH

    My Thyroids, Kidney was good. She did a full blood work on me, it was my annual.

    Oh I went for my annual check up at the OB and he checked me for all diseases etc and they all came back good but I have a UTI. Will a Unrinary Tract Infection cause my numbers to be that way?
