I'm reading everything about RDW but am trying to learn something about RDW CV
Thank you
it help to understand the shape if RBC. if you RBC count and Hemoglobin is ok, you shouldn't worry.
My RDW SD is 49.2fl.  What does that mean?
Hello, according to the situation you described, you should upload a complete inspection report. The standard distribution of red blood cell width is different, and the standard of each hospital is different, some are 35-56. So your test results are relatively normal. If the gap is not big and there are no obvious clinical symptoms, you don't have to worry about it.
Want to know if rdw range of 20.8 is ok
A higher RDW value indicates anemia, you need to follow up with your Dr.
My result was 11.0. What does that mean??
Hi, kami, the normal range for red cell distribution width is 12.2 to 16.1 percent in adult females and 11.8 to 14.5 percent in adult males. Caution, this does not mean you have anemia or something. The interpretation of this parameter must be considered in the context of a complete blood cell count. If your hemoglobin level is OK, just ignore this parameter. To be honest, almost no hematologists give a damn about this parameter.
Hi my RDW-SD 50.2 what does that mean for me
The red blood cell distribution width (RDW or RCDW) is a measure of the variation of red blood cell volume that is reported as part of a standard complete blood count. It is considered that 10.2 % to 14.5% is the normal range of RDW level. Yours are higher than normal, suggesting the size of the red blood cells is varied too much. This occurs with different medical conditions and you need to identify the underlying cause of this variation. You should see a hematologist for further evaluation.
