My fiance just had his routine checkup and his blood work came back normal except for he has a lot of enlarged red blood cells?
Macrocytosis: Macrocytosis (mcv >100) is commonly due to vitamin B12 +/- folate (folic acid) deficiency. That's next step in evaluation. Luckily, both vitamins are inexpensive & available in large enough doses as a pill (even w/severe gastritis). Shots aren't considered necessary to treat low B12 anymore as 1, 000mcg daily can overcome lack of intrinsic factor. Btw, macrocytosis often associated w/excess alcohol, low thyroid. ...Read more
Multiple reasons: Macrocytosis (larger than normal red blood cells) can have multiple causes including: vitamin b-12/folate deficiency, myelodysplastic syndromes, aplastic anemia, alcoholism, leukemia, vitamin c deficiency, vitamin e deficiency, certain medications (chemotherapy), chronic infections, genetic disorders, liver disease, splenectomy, thyroid disorders, hemorrhage, hemolytic anemia, malaria. ...Read more
What does it mean to have enlarged red blood cells? I have had a hypothyroidism test done by my gp came back neg but pos with personal diagnostics te
Macrocytosis: Enlarged red blood cells could be noted in a blood count as an elevated mcv. This is a nonspecific finding. It can be caused by Folic Acid or B12 deficiency, but can also be seen in some families as a normal finding, and also in people who drink excessive alcohol. I would believe the thyroid level done in a regular laboratory rather than a home kit. ...Read more

Please see a hematologist so that the correct diagnosis can be made. ...Read more
What might cause hyperthyroid, high anti-centromere b antibodies, enlarged red blood cells and high iron saturation, normal serum iron, low TIBC/UIBC?
THIS IS A "LONGSHOT":
But this set of symptoms (SYNDROME) sound like HASHIMOTO's THYROIDITIS and PERNICIOUS Macrocytic anemia also may be AUTO-IMMUNE!!!
in nature ie: the body falsely detects NORMAL TISSUE as being "FOREIGN" and develops auto-antibodies against (in this case) your thyroid gland and your bone marrow)
This is a guess....just a "thought". hope it helps!

Several: There are multiple causes of enlarged red blood cells, which is termed macrocytosis, and most of them are easily corrected. Two of the most common causes are deficiencies in vitamin B12 and folic acid, which are frequently associated with anemia, as well.

My iron serum (sideremia) it s lower than normal (39 to 50/170 ug/dl). I have to worrying? Hemoglobin and red blood cells are ok. Thank you. Kr
Red cells have a limited life span of only about 120 days. Some disorders shorten the life span of red cells, e.g., auto-immune hemolytic anemia, hemoglobin disorders like sickle cell disease, malaria, artificial valves, severe exercise etc.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Doubt it: A healthy blood cell count implys that it is in high enough in quantity to do the work but not so high that it plugs up the system. Blood is a complex blend of cells & liquids that must flow thru our "plumbing". Too many red cels will lead to blockage, like your toilet backing up, and clogs will mean no nutrients get thru. ...Read more
