Hi, Can you tell me if the low result on my 4 year old's CBC is normal. I am also not sure if their recommended values are based on children, b/c with her CMP some values came up high or low b/c it was based on adults no children. But anyway here they are:
WBC 6.6 x10^3 L-5.5 H-15.50
RBC 4.12 x10^6 L-3.80 H-5.50
hemoglobin 11.8 g/dl L-9.5 H-15.50
hemactocratit 34.9 % L-29.0 H-45.0
MCV 85 fl L-76 H-86
MCH LOW 28.6 pg L-30.0 H-39.0
MCHC 33.8 g/dl L-32.0 H-39.0
RDW 12.0 % L-11.9 H-14.4
platelets 359 x10^3 L-136 H-432
MPV 9.4 fl L-7.4 H-11.8
As you can see the MCH is low. What does this mean?
Seeing the fact that all other values are within range except MCH, it could be simple iron/pyridoxine deficiency state. So give her iron rich diet and daily vitamin b-complex for 1 month. If she has any associated symptoms, you can contact me anytime!
Take care. Have a great day. Bye.
