    Basophils and RDW count

    hi,

    I just had a a full blood work and these two results were not in reference range, the Doctor didn't really mention them to me.

    RDW 10.90% reference: 11.60-14

    Basophils absolute 0.12 10^9/L reference: <0.10

    I get yearly check ups, and my results are always in range, so I was wondering what these results could mean?

    thank you

    From what I read...below 10.2 is a concern with specific types of anemia.

    A higher basophil can mean immune issue.

    Neither are quite abnormal, but possibilities checked and further testing by your doctor should be done regardless.

    Have you had vitamin B12 and D checked?

    Please let us know the outcome.

    Thank you, I will update if I hear get any answer, I was also wondering as I did this last test at a different lab so I was wondering if this might have changed the results a bit

    Hmmm, I wonder?
    You could check your past results and see what your numbers were as well as the normal ranges.
    Plus...ask if there are further tests to be done to zone in on a possible issue.
