Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have been suffering from fever, nausea, night sweats, and recurrent infections. My blood reports show low hemoglobin levels, high WBC count, and myeloid precursor. I am concerned about the report results. Kindly help.

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can understand your concern.

High white blood cell count (WBC), low hemoglobin, and high myeloid precursor absolute count may indicate an abnormality in your blood cell counts or bone marrow functioning. These results could be indicative of an underlying medical condition, such as an infection, inflammation, or a bone marrow disorder. It is important to note that these values should be interpreted within the context of your overall health, as they can vary based on individual circumstances. I have gone through the reports (attachments have been removed to protect the patient's identity) and it looks like you are suffering from iron deficiency anemia.

A complete blood count (CBC), is typically used to diagnose iron deficiency anemia. This test measures the levels of red blood cells, hemoglobin, and hematocrit in your blood. Additionally, iron studies may be conducted to measure the levels of iron and other related markers in your blood. Once diagnosed, iron supplementation can be started. Kindly consult a specialist, talk to them and rake the medication with their consent.

I hope this information will help you.

Thank you.
