Greetings respect. Okay I want to ask my mother that was finished routine blood checks but the results are abnormal, leukocytes above the reference value. Erythrocytes below the reference value and blood potassium below the reference value. What do you mean by that? Dangerous or not? How can the results of leukocytes, erythrocytes and blood potassium can be abnormal? And is there any possible way to consume something to get it back to normal?

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

Abnormalities of blood test results should be confirmed again by the symptoms felt by the patient as well as with abnormalities obtained from physical examination on the patient. To determine how dangerous it is for general health it is also necessary to know the rate of decline or increase from the normal limit value.

For example in the case of increased leukocytes or called leukocytosis. Leukocytosis indicates several underlying causes, including causes of malignancy or non-malignancy. If the increase is not very high then it can be suspected of non-malignant causes such as bacterial infections. The doctor needs to confirm based on the symptoms complained of by the patient and physical examination to determine the source of the infection, it can come from the respiratory, digestive, urinary, reproductive, etc. Stressor conditions can also cause temporary leukycytosis such as surgery, exercise, injury, and emotional stress. While the cause of malignancy or malignancy in the blood should be suspected if the increase is very high, especially if accompanied by fever, significant weight loss, easy bruising, fatigue, and so forth.

Similarly, a decrease in the value of electrolytes in this case potassium is called hypokalemia. Hypokalemia can be caused by various conditions, such as persistent vomiting, diarrhea, burns, acute kidney disease, and so on. For treatment also depends on the cause and the severity of hypokalemia. Also associated with a decrease in the value of erythrocytes can be caused by conditions of anemia, chronic diseases, chronic kidney disorders, blood malignancies, malnutrition, hemolysis, and so forth.

In this case, further evaluation is needed by the doctor to combine all the information from symptoms, physical examination, to blood tests above to be able to determine the cause and the appropriate directed treatment for the final diagnosis of the disease. So do not hesitate to consult for future plans with relevant doctors.

That's all, hope you can help.
Wassalam.
