The Cause Of Hemoglobin In Children Aged 2 Years Is High?
my child is 2 years old after almost 2 weeks of diarrhea, after the doctor’s examination the doctor recommends drah and x-ray tests blood hemoglobin test: 10.0 leukocytes: 12,100 erythrocytes: 5.4 hematrokit: 33 platelets: 608,000 MCH: 19 MCHC: 30 MCV : 61 I ask what is the high thrombositny and what is the cause thank you
Hello Ms. Sakura
I understand what you are worried about for your child, but it is unfortunate that you did not mention the standard (standard) normal values from the laboratory where your child was examined. As information on the normal value of each laboratory can be different, this is because each clinical laboratory does not necessarily use the same tools, methods, and methods so that there will be a slight difference between the normal values of one laboratory with another.
That is why it is more accurate to state whether a person's blood lab results are based on normal values set by the laboratory, to avoid misinterpretation.
Because no, if you do not attach the standard benchmarks, I will try to interpret them based on normal values in general, but the results of this interpretation may not represent the original conditions. Because it should be interpreted based on the normal values possessed by the laboratory itself.
Hemoglobin for children aged 2 years is generally at a value of 11.5 to 13 g / dL. So that when interpreted with a general value it is likely that your child has anemic condition, which is a Hb level below normal
Leukocytes, in children aged 2 years generally have normal values around 5500 to 15,550, if based on these values, the leukocyte value of your child is considered normal
Erythrocytes, the normal value is generally for children aged 2 years around 3.9 to 5.0, so it is interpreted to be an increase in the value of erythrocytes
Platelets, normal normal for 2-year-old children, around 250,000 to 550,000, so that it can be interpreted that there is an increase in the platelet value of the child's mother
As for the value of MCH (fL) / MCHC (pg) / MCV (%) if interpreted based on the normal value of 2-year-old children in general is around 75-87 fL / 24-30 pg / 31-37%. So it can be interpreted that the MCH value of your child is low, MCHC is still within the reasonable range, while the MCV is increasing.
An increase in platelets above normal is not always of clinical significance, if the amount of increase is not too far away and the absence of clinical symptoms experienced by the patient or the results of other health checks that lead to typical health problems with conditions of high platelet values (eg headache, dizziness / spinning sensation or floating, chest pain, weakness, the legs become weak or tingling).
In addition to increasing the value of platelets can also occur due to an infection process. While the increase in the number of tormbocytes is very unnatural / increased dramatically it is also necessary to consider medical conditions such as bleeding / blood loss, iron deficiency, hemolytic anemia, rheumatoid arthritis, intestinal inflammation, etc.
Consult this with the doctor who treats your child, because the lab results are a means of supporting the doctor to be able to understand the patient's condition. The results of the lab values cannot be used as a sole guide in determining the patient's health condition or what medical efforts will be undertaken by the patient. The doctor also needs to assess the aspects and other information obtained from the symptoms and complaints of the patient, the findings from the basic health examination, and from the results of other supporting examinations.
Thus the information that can be conveyed.
