I am Dr.Charles and I'm happy to help with your question today .
Your RBC count of 3.85 is below normal.The normal range of RBC count is from 4.2 to 5.4 million cells/mcL.
A low red blood cell count can be due to any of the following causes:anemia,acute or chronic blood loss, malnutrition, chronic inflammation, or a number ofnutritional deficiencies including iron, copper, vitamin B-12, or vitamin B-6.Anemia is the most common cause of having less than the normal number of red blood cells.
The treatment is done according to the cause. The cause has to be removed(treated) & also iron & other supplements may be required accordingly.
If anemia is the cause (which is most common cause), then also treatment will depend upon whether you are not getting enough iron in the diet (increase iron intake); not absorbing iron (surgery for celiac sprue,etc.); or losing amounts of iron over time. That is treatment is done according to the cause.
So I advice you to make an appointment with your doctor for these tests to know the exact cause & then treatment will be done accordingly.
