Becky Socha, MS, MLS (ASCP) CM BB CM, is a medical professional specializing in Clinical Laboratory Sciences. She focuses on the importance of advanced clinical parameters, particularly Reticulocyte Hemoglobin content, in detecting and managing iron deficiency and anemia.
Recently, a 29-year-old woman with heavy menstrual bleeding visited her gynecologist. Becky conducted a complete blood count (CBC) to evaluate her condition. The CBC, including the reticulocyte count, helps determine the cause of anemia and assesses the effectiveness of treatment, such as iron replacement therapy.
Becky's expertise contributes to improving patient care by enhancing our understanding and management of iron deficiency and anemia.
