All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, your elevated MCV suggests deficiency of B12 and/or folate, unless it is from drinking. Talk to your doctor about taking B12 and folic acid. Abstain from alcohol. Wish you good health!
