Impact of mean cell hemoglobin
on HbA1c-defined glycemia status.
Cases were not considered mislabeled if changes could be attributed to fluid dilution, poor mixing (no change in red blood cell distribution width [RDW] or the mean cell hemoglobin
[MCH]), or clinical situations such as postoperative samples without transfusion or hydration of patients.
Random patients were selected from the requests sent by the different clinicians, their personal details noted upon & the fresh blood sampled in EDTA bulbs of the same were used to perform the routine hematological investigations as:-a) Complete Blood Counts including measuring Hemoglobin, red blood cell counts, hematocrit, red cell indices including Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV), Mean Hemoglobin Concentration(MHC), Mean Cell Hemoglobin
Concentration(MCHC) and lastly, red cell distribution width(RDW) using Sysmex KX21i, 3-part cell counter with standard calibration.
Laboratory parameters such as hemoglobin (Hb), hematocrit, RDW, mean corpuscular volume (MCV), mean cell hemoglobin
, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, white blood cell count, platelet count, blood urea nitrogen, creatinine, glucose, electrolyte levels (Na, K, Ca, and P), intact parathyroid hormone (iPTH), total cholesterol (T-chol), high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-chol), low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-chol), triglyceride, albumin, C-reactive protein (CRP), ferritin, transferrin saturation, urea reduction ratio (URR), kT/V, and cardiothoracic index obtained in the predialysis period.
The hematological parameters analyzed in this study were: white blood cells (WBC, K/uL), red blood cells (RBC, M/uL), hemoglobin (HGB, g/L), mean cell volume (MCV, fL), mean cell hemoglobin
(MCH, pg), mean cell hemoglobin
concentration (MCHC, g/dL), platelet count (PLT, K/uL), and red blood cell distribution width (RDW, %), as well as differential leukocytic count (DLC, % neutrophil, % lymphocyte, % monocyte, % eosinophils, % basophil).
