Unhappy Factors/Dz causing Inc in RETICULOCYTES


Can anyone help me compose a list of diseases/circumstances in which we would see 'Increase in Reticulocytes count?'

I'm having a lot of difficulty keeping up with this when it comes to answering UWORLD Qs.

That would be a really long list.

But there is a simple explanation. Whenever there is loss of RBCs either through hemolysis or hemorrhage, there will be increase in reticulocytes as long as the bone marrow is functioning normally.
