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, there is insufficient information for a diagnosis. The high MCV suggests B12 and or Folic acid deficiency. Wish you good health!
