Ignore it: If your other values, including smear and reticulocyte count, are basically normal, ignore the MCHC. It may have more to do with the the machine being a bit mis-calibrated, or the fact that a few percent of healthies fall outside the reference range on either side. (This is how the range is set.) The hair loss issue is unrelated.
