Explanation Of The Results Of Blood Tests?
A good afternoon. Some of my blood samples have been examined with the results of normochromic normocytic anemia PMX with severe poikilositosis, and today also have been done pmx total bilirubin with a result of 5468 mg / dL, abnormal. Do the two PMX results have a relationship?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Normochromic normocytic anemia is anemia with large red blood cells and hemoglobin content in every normal red blood cell. Poikilositosis is a condition in which the form of abnormal red blood cells (not round and hollow in the middle like in general).
Normochromic normocytic anemia with poikilositosis can be caused by several possibilities, including:
Conditions that have been acquired since birth (genetic disorders), for example sickle cell anemia, hereditary spherocytosis, hereditary elliptocytosis, G6 deficiency, pyruvate kinase deficiency, etc.
Obtained conditions (not genetic), for example autoimmune hemolytic anemia, mechanical hemolytic anemia, liver or kidney disorders, alcoholism, drug side effects, severe infections, cancer, etc.
Bilirubin can increase due to many possible causes as well, including increased destruction of red blood cells (hemolysis), blockage of the biliary tract, liver disorders (due to various causes). Basically, red blood cells that are in an abnormal shape will tend to experience red blood cell destruction faster (this will increase bilirubin in the blood too), but hemolytic diseases or diseases of the liver (where there is an increase in bilirubin in the blood) can also cause abnormal red blood cell forms. The two can indeed relate to each other. We recommend that you further consult your health condition and the results of your laboratory examination with an internist in order to find the exact cause of the abnormal laboratory results.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
