- As one of the baseline studies in anemia with no obvious cause
- To diagnose anemia due to ineffective erythropoiesis (premature destruction of red cell precursors in bone marrow seen in megaloblastic anemia and thalassemia) or due to decreased production of red cells: In hypoplastic anemia or in ineffective erythropoiesis, reticulocyte count is low as compared to the degree of anemia. Increased erythropoiesis (e.g. in hemolytic anemia, blood loss, or specific treatment of nutritional anemia) is associated with increased reticulocyte count. Thus reticulocyte count is used to differentiate hypoproliferative anemia from hyperproliferative anemia.
- To assess response to specific therapy in iron deficiency and megaloblastic anemias.
- To assess response to erythropoietin therapy in anemia of chronic renal failure.
- To follow the course of bone marrow transplantation for engraftment
- To assess recovery from myelosuppressive therapy
- To assess anemia in neonate
