hello from ja
what is your question
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What do you think these blood tests mean. Also I have been losing some weight and really tired.
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 2 years ago.
Basophils..fine...we worry about high not low
MCH is fine..a slight elevation by itself means nothing
Leukocytes of 4.7 is within lab variability and means nothing.

This is just a CBC and is not adequate investigation for your symptoms
YOu need
thyroid studies
sed rate or CRP
CMP...comprehensive metabolic panel

With these tests you would look at thyroid, liver, kidney, diabetes, electrolytes, and inflammation in the body, so the possibility of autoimmune disease, hidden cancer or hidden infection.

The lab you had is not really useful.

Let me know if you have further questions, details or need clarification, just use reply.......

What does ERYTHROCYTES.NUCLEATED 0.1 High mean?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
also, I am hypo thyroid
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
and last thyroid studies were fine.
Expert:  DrThomasMd replied 2 years ago.
OK
I think the nucleated erythrocyte is a lab error.
This should be repeated.
It would mean you have an anemia, which is not shown on your test.
Or a bone marrow problem which is not indicated on your test.

So you need the other tests and to repeat a CBC.
