Asking for your help.

  1. Need help understanding my CBC/DIFF and Urinalysis?
    Here is the CBC,

    WBC Low 4.25
    RBC low 3.87
    Hemoglobin low 10.3
    hematocrit low 31.8
    MCH Low 26.6
    RDW High 15.2
    C02 low 20

    Here is the Urinalysis
    urine blood- small
    urine leukocytes- small
    urine epithelial- 3+ ( I really don't understand anything about this)
    urine bacteria- moderate
    Hyaline casts- high 6
    urine wbc- high 22

    So I'm SO worried about all of this. I had to go get the results for the doctors office because the nurse wouldnt tell me anything on the phone. The doctor has ordered more test. Can anyone help me understand any of this???
    The test he ordered is Ferritin, Iron, TIBC, and stool for occult blood x2.
    I know my iron was ok last month, I gave blood and they checked it. And if it helps I'm 25 years old. Thank you SO much!
