Explanation Of Blood Test Results?
Hello, introduce my name is Devi, I am 20 years old, last night I came home from a complete blood check from the results of the check came some abnormal results MCHC (31.7), RDW-CV (16.2), HDW (3.57), PDW ( 58.6), MPV (13.6), and BASO (4.40), what is the meaning of the lab results? Am I really infected with the HIV virus? if so, how do you deal with it? And can HIV be of heredity? please help, yes 🥺🙏 thank you, doctor. I hope the doctor is pleased to tell me the information🥺🙏 that’s all and thank you🙏 Hello Wr.Wb
Hello Devi, Thank you for the question.
What symptoms do you experience until you have a blood test? The blood test that you include does not have a blood test to detect HIV. The blood test is just a routine / regular blood test that aims to determine blood cell levels. From the blood test you are undergoing, it cannot be concluded whether you have HIV infection or not (because another blood test is needed). You will usually be advised to undergo a blood test to detect HIV if you carry out or are exposed to risky actions such as risky sexual intercourse (unprotected), sharing unsterile needles or injecting drug users, or receiving blood transfusions that are contaminated with this virus. . If you do not have these risky actions, you are not likely to get HIV. HIV infection is not a genetically inherited infection but can be transmitted from a mother suffering from HIV to her baby both during the womb, during labor, and when breastfeeding.
Some information that I can convey is:
mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) is an examination to find out the average concentration of hemoglobin (a protein in red blood cells that aims to bind oxygen) in red blood cells. A low MCHC result can indicate iron deficiency anemia or thalassemia
red distribution width (RDW or RDW-CV) is the range of volume variation in red blood cells. Higher yields indicate greater variation in the volume / size of red blood cells
hemoglobin distribution width (HDW) is the range of variations in the concentration of hemoglobin in red blood cells
mean platelet volume (MPV) is the average volume of platelet cells
platelet distribution width (PDW) is a variation in the size of platelet cells
basophils (BASO) is a component of white blood cells
The most appropriate step to consult about the results of blood tests is to consult with a doctor who previously recommended this examination. The results of a new blood test can be interpreted appropriately if the doctor already knows your complaints and your medical history, and conducts a physical examination on you. Without information about your doctor's complaints and physical examination, it is not possible to know what medical condition you are experiencing. Therefore, it is recommended that you consult with your doctor who recommends this blood test so that you know the next step you should take regarding complaints or symptoms that you experience.
Hopefully this information helps you.
