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.
