Thanks for the query.
I have seen your reports and there are few shortcomings in this.
Your lymphocyte count is little high and there is anisocytosis.
Anisocytosis means red blood cells are differently sized instead of normally sized.
Before answering your query I would want to know the reason for getting yourself tested.
Please give your problem and your symptoms in detail so that I can proceed ahead with the discussion.

I don't have any problem and I checked blood test as routine. I found anisocytosis and based on that checked iron deficiency and it came normal. Usually I felt tired always other than that I am ok. Please guide me for further follow up. Thank you.

Although your hemoglobin levels are in normal range but it is on lower border.
High RDW along with low MCHC suggest beginning of take some iron supplement daily.However your lymphocyte levels are high and it needs to be probed as high lymphocytes are present in chronic infections or cancers or some auto immune disorders resulting in chronic inflammation.

I would advise you to consult your doctor and get yourself investigated thoroughly to look for the cause of high percentage of lymphocytes.
Best of luck

my friend has some problem like rectal prolaps but after some blood tests and MRI defogegram she had only less red blood cells due to iron deficiency. After treatment she still has the same problem. What should she do. Or which doctor should be refered?

doctor1 MD

I have had chronic diarrhea for over 3 years. I have no other symptoms except iron deficiency anemia (currently being treated w/ monthly transfusions). I've had all the blood, stool, urine tests, a colonoscopy, an upper endoscopy, and nothing has turned up. I'm able to stay hydrated, I eat a normal diet, and have a fairly sedentary to mildly active lifestyle (walk the dogs, housework, etc, but no regular exercise or physically demanding interests). The only medication I take is lisinopril for mild hypertension. 20 mg/day. I am minus 1 kidney due to traumatic injury (30 years ago), and I have a Lap Band for 4 years. Do I need to worry about this? 47 yr old female.

doctor1 MD

I have difficulty urinating (I still retain a lot of urine), chronic constipation, episodes of blood in the stools, hemmorhoids, occasional bouts of muscle fatigue, iron deficiency anemia. I had cancer of the kidney 11 years ago and had one of the kidneys removed. I am gettting a colonoscopy tomorrow and having the hemmorhoids removed. Do you think this is going to solve my problems? I am concerned about having either colon or prostate cancer or both. I am 57 years old.
