Explanation Of Lab Examination Results Of Blood Tests?
Good afternoon doctor. Doctor, I finished the complete blood test. The result for monocytes is 9%. Is it normal or high doctor? Then the MPV is 5.68. Is it normal or low doctor? Thank you doctor
Good afternoon, Mrs. Eka. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com
For blood tests there are many indicators that can be considered, related to what mothers ask, namely monocytes are part of white blood cells. Monocytes usually have a normal value if in the range of 1% to 10% of the total white blood cells, 200-600 monocytes per microliter of blood, but it should be noted that related to the normal value is usually adjusted to each laboratory for the standard values usually will be listed on laboratory results. If there is an increase this indicates there are events such as infections, autoimmune diseases, or disorders of the heart system and blood vessels.
For MPV is the mean platelet volume, which is to see the process of platelet production by the bone marrow by calculating the average size of platelets whose normal values are usually 7.5 to 11.5. If the MPV is less than the normal range usually indicates a slowdown in the production of platelets that can be related to several body conditions such as infection, malignancy, impaired kidney function, to autoimmune disease.
However, it should be noted that for laboratory results are investigations so that it must be seen that the clinical conditions are related as well as low platelets there will usually be symptoms associated with blood clots such as blood more difficult to clot when injured, often bruising. To further diagnose physical examination can be done by doctors, especially doctors in internal medicine and further tests such as other blood profiles in the form of blood coagulation factors or until the bone marrow examination to see the production function.
That's the thing we can say. May be useful. Thank you
