Iron Deficiency Anemia ( How to read its lab results)
In case any type of anemia in medical prospective The very first thing to look at in the lab result is hemoglobin If the lab results shows low amount of hemoglobin then were are dealing with anemia. Once we identify its anemia we then look at MCV Note: Never look at MCV before hemoglobin Normal MCV is between 80-100 We call it ''Normocytic Anemia''. If MCV below 80 we call it ''Microcytic Anemia''. If MCV above 100 we call it ''Macrocytic Anemia''. The causes of Microcytic Anemia are: Iron Deficiency Anemia Thalassemia, Sidroblastic Anemia Lead Poisoning, and Anemia of Chronic Disease. Today we will focus Only on ''Iron Deficiency Anemia''. Soo lets interpret the lab results.
The first thing to look at again is hemoglobin you can see its low so we are dealing with anemia. Then we at MCV which is low as well we say its ''Microcytic Anemia''. Note: MCH, and MCHC are low as well which goes with microcytic anemia The RDW is low, which goes with ''Iron Deficiency Anemia'' Low Ferritin it goes with ''Iron Deficiency Anemia'' Iron level is low as well. So the diagnosis is ''Iron Deficiency Anemia'' Here i have provided a summary of the positive lab findings in ''Iron Deficiency Anemia'' And thank you very much for watching this video and don't forget to subscribe.
