Hello,
Thank you for your question.
I am Dr Saha, I shall try my best to help you.
There is mildly raised total WBC count.
Along with absolute neutrophil count, it suggests an inflammation or infection.
RBC count is a bit lower.
This can be present with anemia.
However, hemoglobin level & other parameters of RBC like MCV, MCHC etc. need to be taken into consideration.
Overall, the picture is not alarming.
However, a follow up with your doctor should be taken.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
If you are satisfied, please rate my answer as good or excellent.
Regards.
