Understanding Reticulocyte Count in Greater Noida


What is Reticulocyte Count in Greater Noida?

Reticulocytes are relatively immature red blood cells (RBCs) produced by the bone marrow. This test is used to determine the amount of reticulocytes in the blood and is a measure of bone marrow function or activity. It is suggested by a doctor if he suspects any symptoms of anemia such as fatigue, headache and weakness. Various conditions such as liver cirrhosis, erythroblastosis fetalis, bone marrow failure and folate deficiency can lead to different types of anemia. 

This test is used to diagnose different types of anemia including aplastic anemia, hemolytic anemia, pernicious anemia and Iron deficiency anemia.

Frequently Asked Questions about Reticulocyte Count in Greater Noida

Inform the doctor about the medications you may be taking. No other specific preparations are usually required before this test.

Q. Is there any risk associated with Reticulocyte Count test?

There is no risk associated with the test. However, since this test involves a needle prick to withdraw the blood sample, in rare cases, a patient may experience excessive bleeding, hematoma (blood collection under the skin) formation, bruising or infection at the site of needle prick.

Q. What additional tests can be prescribed by your doctor in case of an abnormal result of reticulocyte count test?

Additional tests that may be prescribed in case of abnormal Reticulocyte Count Test result are: · Complete Blood Count (CBC) Test · Hematocrit Test · Blood Iron Tests · Vitamin B12 and Folate Tests · Glucose-6 phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) Test · Erythropoietin Test · Bone Marrow Aspiration and Biopsy

Q. What is Erythropoietin?

Erythropoietin or EPO is a protein that stimulates the formation of red blood cells. It is secreted by the kidneys and stimulates the production of red blood cells from the bone marrow. Normally, a low level of erythropoietin is constantly maintained in blood to stimulate production of RBCs in response to those RBCs which are lost after their completion of life cycle. However, secretion of erythropoietin is increased when there is hypoxia (deficiency of oxygen in cells) which may be caused due to lung conditions, or low amounts of RBCs because of excessive bleeding, hemolysis, etc. Rise in erythropoietin levels increase reticulocyte count, followed by rise in RBC count.
