Help! I need help with my pt's lab for a care plan. He has had a low H&H, low RBC Count. He is not anemic according to Dr. Diagnosis. He is on Lovenox, but I got dinged before when I put that as a reason. What else could be causing this?

If a patient has a low red cell count, he or she has anemia. The physician might have meant that the patient does not have iron deficiency anemia, the most common type?
Do you know the mcv, mch and mchc?
What are his WBC and plt? Could he have bone marrow suppression due to steroids or other drugs?
