Normal hemoglobin and other CBC questions *Update*
I have the results from my son's 9 month CBC. The hemoglobin was 11, so not far from the range it shows they were looking for (11.3-14.1). In a kellymom article, though, I saw 10.2 mentioned as normal, so now I'm wondering what is really normal and what is cause for concern. Either way, I'm thinking all he's fine and as long as he's getting breastmilk and healthy solids I probably don't need to give him iron supplements.
The reason she wanted him retested was because his neutrophils were 562 instead of 1500-8500 and his monocytes were 1986 instead of 200-1000. I have no idea what that really means. I only saw his nurse today for the new blood draw, plus I didn't have the numbers yet, so I didn't really ask a lot of questions. Now I'm home wondering how much I should worry until I hear back from them, lol
Everything was normal in the second wbc count. His hemoglobin was a little lower, but not enough to make much difference. :-)
