CBC test results: Elevated MCHC, elevated MCH, bottom of range for Haematocrit, everything else within normal ranges. What do these results mean?

CBC test results: Elevated MCHC, elevated MCH, bottom of range for Haematocrit, everything else within normal ranges.  What do these results mean?

Nothing: Your physician may want to repeat them. I trust you do not have spherocytosis or if you do, that you've been worked up. At most, a reticulocye count may be in order. Sometimes the machines can be a bit mis-calibrated. High MCHC is quite uncommon and if you feel well I wouldn't be troubled. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. ...Read more

What is (mch) mean corpuscular hemoglobin on your CBC test?

What is (mch) mean corpuscular hemoglobin on your CBC test?

Hemoglobin/rbc count: Mean corpuscular hemoglobin or mean cell hemoglobin. It is roughly a measurement of the average hemoglobin content of each red blood cell (rbc) and is obtained by dividing the total hemoglobin by the number of rbc's. The value comes out as picograms/cell and is usually in the range of 27 -31. Hemoglobin is the oxygen carrying molecule in the blood. Mch is useful for classifying types of anemia. ...Read more

Focus on Important v: You need to focus on important values which are Hemoglobin(Hb) instead of RBC count and give us your WBC count instead of lymph count and platelet counts. Rest is not important unless the 3 values I have asked you to focus on are high or low(abnormal) which is not the case with you. So your blood test results are fine. ...Read more

CBC test, MVC value is normal but MCH & MCHC below 2values than normal range,PCV 2% more than normal.hb&wbc normal.am feeling tied at evening time.

Lab values: There is nothing about these values that is either concerning or diagnostic. Lab data cannot be easily interpreted outside of the clinical context in which it is occurring and knowing why it was ordered. Fatigue can be due to many different causes and needs detailed professional evaluation if truly troublesome. ...Read more

I recently had a CBC test done and they found mcv-low, mch-low, rdw-high, and they found presence of nrbc's but i don't know how many. Reason for going in: headaches. What could it be?

NRBC: And the "indices" suggest a need for a heme consult. You didn't mention wbc, platelets or hematocrit/hemoglobin. Nrbc's are immature red cells, but it infers the bone marrow may be crowded out. Headaches doesn't help. The scenario can be serious. Leukemia and metastasis on the list, but you need moer information and I do too. ...Read more

Cbc test shows high wbc, low hematocrit, low mcv, low mch, high platelet count, low lymphocytes and monocytes - can you define these for me?

Cbc test shows high wbc, low hematocrit, low mcv, low mch, high platelet count, low lymphocytes and monocytes - can you define these for me?

Hard to say...: It sounds like it may be an infection but it's impossible to say without more information including if you have any other signs or symptoms. It is also important to know the numbers: how high is that wbc, for example. The best way to go for you is to discuss it with you doctor directly. ...Read more

My CBC test shows high wbc, low hematocrit, low mcv, low mch, high platelet count, low lymphocytes and monocytes, can you explain this to me?

No, we can't: I suspect you're iron deficient (microcytic anemia and high platelets) and I am not even going to guess on the others. This is the wrong forum to bring questions that you have a duty to ask of your personal physician. The workup needs to continue. Best wishes. ...Read more

Can you explain results of CBC test shows high wbc, low hematocrit, low mcv, low mch, high platelet count, low lymphocytes and monocytes - what does it mean?

Iron deficiency?: I'm a lab specialist. Labs mean nothing apart from a history and physical exam, and labs aren't simply "low" or "high" -- HOW low / high is key. You owe it to yourself to get with your physician. If this is iron deficiency (which I suspect, rule out thalassemia), your physician has a duty to find out whether, and WHY -- it means serious treatable illness until proved otherwise. Stay proactive. ...Read more
