Total White blood count (XaldY): 6.38 10*9L (4.0 - 10.0)
Red blood cell count (426): ABOVE RANGE 5.24 10*12L (3.8 - 4.8) Outside reference range.
Haemoglobin concentration (Xa96v): 140g/L (120.0 - 150.0)
Haematocrit (X76tb): 0.432 (0.36 - 0.46)
Mean cell volume(42A): BELOW RANGE: 82.4fL (83.0 - 101.1) Outside reference range
Mean cell haemoglobin level (XE2pb): BELOW RANGE: 26.7 pg (27.0 -32.0) Outside reference range.
Mean cell haemoglobin concentration (429): 324 g/L (315.0 - 345.0)
Platelet count - observation (42P): 232 10*9L (150.0 - 400.0)
Neutrophil count (42J): 3.95 10*9/L (2.0 - 7.0)
Lymphocyte count (42M): 1.89 10*9/L (1.0 - 3.0)
Monocyte count - observation (42N): 0.42 10*9/L (0.2 - 1.0)
Eosinophil count - observation (42K): 0.08 10*9/L (0.02 - 0.5)
Basophil count (42L) 0.04 10*9/L (0.02 - 0.1)
Percentage nucleated red blood cells (42b8): Not detected
Nucleated red blood cell count (4266): Not detected
BLOOD HAEMATINIC LEVELS (XaDsm)
Serum ferritin level (XE24r): 43ug/L (30.0 - 400.0)
Serum Vitamin B12 (XE2pf): 434 ng/L (197.0 - 400.0)
Serum folate level (42U5): 7.5 ug/L (3.89 - 26.8). The folate assay has been re-standardised. Refer to pathology website for more information on changes.
Am looking forward to getting your wonderful advice regarding these tests results.
When I phoned the surgery office to get the results I was told everything was NORMAL.... Glad I requested a copy which clearly show that everything is not normal. Any rational suggestions and piece of advice, and how to approach my GP again would be most welcome.
Many thanks to those of you who can help.
