What are the blood test numbers that are abnormal?
I have a blood test with PDW of 19.9, PLT of 142 and RDW-SD of 63, MPV, PCT, and P-LCR are normal. So the doctor asked me what blood test numbers are abnormal? Are you sick, doctor? Thank you doctor.
Answered by Master, Doctor Pham Thi Thuy Nhung - Laboratory Department, Vinmec Hai Phong International General Hospital.
With the question “What are the abnormal blood test values? , the doctor would like to answer as follows:
PDW: Means the platelet distribution, this index has a normal value of 7 - 18%. If it is higher than normal, it means that the platelets are not of equal size. If it is larger than normal, it may suggest sickle cell disease, pulmonary disease, infection, and some other pathology.
RDW-SD: Means red blood cell size distribution, this index has a normal value of 29 - 46fl, this number is higher than normal means that the red blood cells are uneven in size, RDW-SD High levels associated with normal MCV, suggest sickle cell disease, chronic liver disease, early stages of folate deficiency, vitamin B12,...
PLT: Is platelet count, normal value is 150 - 450G/L. Platelet counts decrease with viral infections, bone marrow failure, certain medications, thrombocytopenic purpura, etc.
However, the normal reference ranges of the Labos are different, and this reference range applies. For a large population but not everyone, there is still a small percentage of people whose test results are outside the normal reference range but are perfectly healthy.
So you shouldn't worry too much, you can go to Vinmec international general hospital to be examined and examined more in-depth tests based on the doctor's clinical diagnosis.
If you still have questions about the blood test index, you can go to a hospital of Vinmec Health System for further examination and advice. Thank you for trusting and sending questions to Vinmec. Wishing you lots of health.
