Question: Is there anything to be concerned about?

 reianni - Mon Feb 20, 2006 1:12 am

2 days ago I did a blood check and some of them were off the normal values:

Hemoglobin: 187 Value: 130-180G/L
Hematocrit: 0.55 Value 0.40-.0.54L
Lymphocytes 0.54 Value 0.20-0.45

Is there any cause of alarm for these 3 values being out of parameters?

The others like my RBC, platelet count and lympho count were within normal parameters. Also I noticed a new term I just encountered, what are eosinophils??? I have a value of 0.01 from my Eosionphils 0.01-.0.06. Hope you can help me thanks.

User avatar Hi reianni,
These are quite mild evelavation and should not cause over concern at this point. Out of curiosity do you smoke? Be sure to follow up with your physician to discuss any concerns. Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell and elevations are commonly seen in response regarding allergies, parasitic infestations, etc.
