Question: I currently had a blood test and here the results of what came back high and low, please tell me what you recommend. Also, what to do to increase red blood cell count; my red blood cell count has been low since 2014. Also based on these findings from the blood test, do I have cancer, leukemia, lymphoma, possible viral infection?

RBC: 3.84 Low

Hematrocrit: 36.6 LOW
MCH: 32.3 HI

Brief Answer:
Hello . reports are ok except hemoglobin

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. I have gone through the details. As i can see, you have mild anemia which is the cause of your low hemoglobin and hematocrit and rbc. RDW is borderline and i take it as normal. Platelet counts are ok. So as the hemoglobin is mildly low, you can take supplements like iron and folic acid. More important is to check that hemoglobin doesnot fall. You can check it after a period of 3 months. For supplements you will require a prescription from the doctor.
Your blood reports does not show any leukemia, lymphoma or viral infection. No need to worry.
Thanks and regards

I have a CKD stage 3. But I am not on medication yet and I have a mild anemia. Is it okay to drink wheatgrass juice everyday? If it is okay how many ounces a day. Is it okay to drink alcohol & coffee? Thanks in advance for your answer. I appreciate it.
