Q.

Blood test

I was found to be anemic. Is a blood test with 0.4% nucleated RBC cause for concern? And is an IMM Gran of .03% cause for concern?

Dear Denise, the presence of nucleated Red Blood Cells (RBC) is a sign of very immature form of RBCs seen when there is a severe demand for RBCs to be released by the bone marrow. The appearance of immature granulocytes in the blood usually indicates an early-stage response to infection, inflammation or other stimuli of the bone marrow. (MCH).
