what does high mpv and high anion gap mean?

Nothing: Labs mean nothing in isolation. High MPV usually means nothing in any case unless the person is otherwise clearly sick. I raise my anion gap every time I exercise. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end. If your phyiscian isn't worried, stop worrying yourself. Best wishes.
