Is WBC Count Of 10 A Cause For Concern?
no significant change
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
A change of less than 1 is not usually considered significant, this is the reason that your doctor would have stated that it was normal.
Minor changes such as these do not indicate any particular condition.
The slight increase in hemoglobin and hematocrit may be related to what is called hemoconcentration-- when a persons fluid intake is reduced, the blood maybe more concentrated because of the decreased water/fluid and this causes some of the values to appear higher. It does not cause any problems just indicates fluids may be reduced.
I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
that requires Hb>16.5 and hematocrit >48
There are criteria that are used to diagnosed PV , it requires an HB > 16.5 g/dl in women and an hematocrit of greater than 48% in women (the values are different for men.
There are also other criteria that are required as well
Your results do not fall into this category so it cannot be PV
If anything else unclear, can let me know
