Overview


What is Hmg?

It includes the evaluation of your complete blood count along with ESR. It is done as a part of your routine health check up, if you have symptoms of anemia, infection or any kind of bleeding disorders, to monitor the effectiveness of treatment once the diagnosis of anemia is established, and to monitor treatment that is known to affect blood cells. Get your complete hemogram done in case of any long standing fever also.

Why is Hmg done?

    1. As a part of routine health check up or package 
    2. It is one of the preliminary tests done to screen for a wide range of diseases and conditions
    3. Help diagnose conditions like anemia, infection, bleeding disorders, inflammation, leukemia 
    4. Monitor the effectiveness of treatment after a diagnosis of these conditions is established 
    5. Monitor treatment that is known to affect blood cells such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy

Interpreting Hmg results


Interpretations

  • Decreased level of hemoglobin is suggestive of anemia while increased levels are seen in polycythemia. Some common causes of anemia are iron deficiency anemia, vitamin B 12 deficiency anemia, hemolytic anemia
  • Increased WBC count may be seen in infections, inflammatory disorders, leukemia, myeloproliferative disorders while decreased levels may be seen in aplastic anemia, bone marrow disorders, auto immune conditions 
  • High neutrophil count (neutrophilia) can be seen in acute bacterial infections, inflammation, burns while lower values (neutropenia) may be seen in aplastic anemia, autoimmune disorders, drug reactions or chemotherapy 
  • High lymphocyte count (lymphocytosis) may be seen in acute viral infections, tuberculosis, lymphocytic leukemia while lower values (lymphopenia) may be seen in bone marrow damage, aplastic anemia, autoimmune disorders 
  • High monocyte count (monocytosis) may be seen in chronic infections like tuberculosis, bacterial endocarditis, collagen vascular disorders, inflammatory bowel diseases while lower values may be seen in bone marrow damage 
  • High eosinophil count (eosinophilia) can be seen in asthma, allergies, drug reactions, parasitic infections, while lower levels are rare and medically insignificant 
  • High basophil count (basophilia) may be seen in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) while lower levels are medically insignificant 
  • Low platelet counts also called as thrombocytopenia are associated with viral infections like dengue fever, bleeding or platelet disorders
