    Low Reticulocytes and Low RBC

    I just had new blood work completed and it shows low retic count, low RBC, and a few are the results
    Reticulocyte absolute 18700 (20000-80000)
    RBC 3.74 (3.8-5.10)
    Hematocrit 35.5 (35-45)
    Ferritin 14 (10-232)
    Vit B12 473 (200-1100) I am dx with B12 deficiency and take B12 injections and sublinguals. My level in Oct 2010 was 679

    Can anyone tell me what a low reticulocyte and low RBC Count means??
