Hi Karen,


I have no medical training at all, but I believe BA might be an abbreviation for basophils, which can rise during inflammation such as by allergies or infection. You'd need to ask your doctor what significance this is, if any, in light of your entire CBC and health history.


From glancing at a few online searches, it looks like there might be some relationship between elevated basophils and iron infusions, so it may be something that you'd want to investigate.

Warm Hugs,
