​Dear customer,

Thanks for coming back online.Here is your detailed answer.

  • Normal WBC count is 4,500-11,000 white blood cells/mcL (cells per microliter).Your count of 12.2 is slightly higher then normal.
  • RBC count of 5.01 is normal.It ranges from 4.2 to 5.4 million cells/mcL.
  • Normal value range of hemoglobin is 12.1 to 15.1 gm/dL.Your value of 15.6 is slightly higher then normal.
  • Hematocrit value normal range is from 36.1 - 44.3%.Your value of 44.5 is again slightly higher then normal.

  • MCH of 31.1 is within normal limits.Normal range is 27-33 picograms (pg)/cell
  • MCHC normal range is 32 to 36 g/dl. Your value of 35.1 is within normal range.
  • MPV normal range is 7.5 - 11.5. Your value of 10.9 is within normal range.
  • Red cell distribution width (RDW) normal range is 11.5-14.5%. Your value of 13.8 is within normal range.
  • A normal platelet count ranges from 150,000 to 450,000 is on lower side but still within normal range.

So bot***** *****ne is that only your WBC count,hemoglobin & hematocrit values are slightly above normal.This is not of concern.Platelet count is on lower side but within normal limits. There is nothing to worry as of now.

Just need to keep an eye of observation & regular monitoring may be required.Repeat these tests(which are slightly higher) along with platelet count after 3 months.

Hope this helped

If you have any other questions, please ask me – I’ll be happy to respond.

Thank you!

Kind Regards-
