Blood Count Numbers

Hi VBL, I can tell you what my lab results values are. They may be in the ballpark figures because (I think) diffrent labs may have diffrent values as what is the norm and what is out of range. But they should not be too far off. RBC's inrange should be about 4.0-11.0 / HEMATOCRIT 34.0-49.0 / I'm not sure if MEAN PLATELET COUNT is the same as mean corpusle but according to my lab sheet I show a range of 150-400 should be the norm. I hope this helps you. I have to have a CBC blood draw every 6-8 weeks and I have copies of a lot of my lab work at home. I'm just going by my results... you can call your s office and a should be able to let you know your results and what values they go by.

Blood Count Numbers

Hi vbl!

You might try giving your clinic a call and asking them what those numbers mean. I am clueless . I know the lab reports I have gotten in the past, not only showed my readings, but also the normal ranges. Hope you find some answers!

Blood Count Numbers

For women the normal levels are:

Red Blood Cell Count: 4.2-5.4
Hematocrit: 37%-47%
Mean Corpuscular Volume: 96-108
You didn't ask for it, but Hemoglobin is: 12-16

Some hospitals or doctor's offices may have just a
little difference in their ranges.

Low levels can indicate anemia. If yours is a little low, don't be too alarmed if you've recently had surgery or are pre-op and have had heavy bleeding. As you get better, the level should come back up. Also, if it is low, you may want to ask your dr if you should maybe take a slow release iron (can get over the counter at drug store). Dark green leafy veggies are good too. Anytime you have any concerns, please call the dr.
