Brief Answer:
Normal Stool tests

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

You are wondering if you stool tests are normal and they are. The small amount of blood noted on the exam is normal and nothing to be concerned about. The low amount of WBC and RBC is the normal counts encountered in a fecal sample.

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions

Many thanks
