Our expert says:
RDW is Red Cell Distribution Width and is a measure of the variation of red blood cell width. This gives us an idea what the cause of an anemia is. With a RDW slightly above normal, and target cells, you probably have a slight iron deficiency anemia. The white cell count of 10.5 is still acceptable - if it goes much higher it can be an indication of underlying infection.
