    Exclamation Abnormal Blood Work, need help.

    Hi guys, I am an RN and have been chronically tired and have other symptoms as well. I just got blood work again, and I will post my labs as follows:

    WBC 5.97 4.0 - 12.4 K/cmm Final
    RBC 4.88 3.86 - 5.04 M/cmm Final
    Hemoglobin 12.5 11.6 - 15.2 gm/dl Final
    HCT 37.4 34.9 - 44.4 % Final
    MCV 77 (L) 81 - 98 fl Final
    MCH 25.7 (L) 26.7 - 33.3 pg Final
    Hypochromia 1+ Final
    MCHC 33.5 32.1 - 35.9 gm/dl Final
    RDW-CV 15.0 (H) 11.7 - 14.6 % Final
    RDW-SD 40.3 37.6 - 50.3 fl Final
    PLT 353 (H) 141 - 320 K/cmm Final
    MPV 7.9 7.5 - 11.2 fl Final

    I have no idea what is going on, and my PCP isn't helpful on where to go next. I need to switch doctors. In the mean time, does anyone have any reason to why this could be happening? As you can see, my iron is fine. But clearly I have anemia.....

    If I were you I would make an appointment with a hematologist. Just to have that checked. It could be another type of anemia. Good luck!!

    For a more complete blood workup, get your vitamin D and B12 levels checked. These are not part of the CBC test but deficiency in either can cause a lot of serious problems.
    Severe B12 deficiency dx Oct 24, 2014
    Caused by pernicious anemia
    B12 below 450 pg/mL should be treated
