Iron deficiency is the most common cause of low MCV & MCH often associated with microcytic (small sized cells) anemia. The platelet count also is elevated in many cases of iron deficiency anemia. ...Read moreGet help now ›
Is it possible to have a normal hemoglobin but low MCH and mchb and platelet count of 482 to be considered microcytic anemia?
Not anemia: With a normal hemoglobin and hematocrit, by definition you are not anemic. If your MCV is low in this context then you simply have microcytic red blood cells. This can be seen in some hereditary syndromes such as thallasemia. It is also possible that your iron stores may be in the process of being depleted and frank anemia has not emerged yet. Discuss with your doctor obtaining iron studies. ...Read moreGet help now ›

If your child is staying well hydrated despite the insensible losses, he will probably be fine. If you're uncertain, go see your pediatrician. The blood counts by themselves are not that concerning, provided anemia is being treated. ...Read moreGet help now ›
