Low Mcv Normal Hemoglobin
Could it thelasemia if there's low iron level 20.39 (normal range 33-193), normal hemoglobin 12.10 (11.5-15.5) and low MCV 74.90 (77-95)?
Probably not: Based on those lab values, I would not worry about thalassemia. Your MCV seems too high to have thalassemia.
No: I will not worryGet a more detailed answer ›
Suspect thal minor: No lab value means anything apart from a human being, and labs are numbers that may be far removed from the reference range, or just at the edges. I strongly suggest you do not self-diagnose but instead use the internet to become literate about health and the diagnostic process so you can be a partner with your physician.
Can you be anaemic if RBC test is normal but hemoglobin is borderline low, MCV is a little high & MCHC is low?
Anemia: Anemia is defined by a hemoglobin or hematocrit below "normal" Normal is specific to age and sex. Borderline low is still normal. High MCV could indicate folate (folic acid) or B12 deficiency, but this is not supported by low MCHC which might be seen with iron deficiency (which would actually cause the MCV to be low). All in all this then appears to be a normal variant - consider repeating in a few months.
Can thelasemia cause low iron 20.39 (normal range 33-193), normal hemoglobin 12.10 (11.5-15.5) & low MCV 74.90 (77-95) in CBC RESULT?
Need CBC number: Low MCV (Get a more detailed answer ›
What does it signify if I have low hemoglobin 10.3 but normal hematocrit 35.4? MCV, MCH, MCHC are low levels. Iron low level, high TIBC and UIBC.
Iron deficient: Work with your physician to identify the cause
How low?: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end. If your peripheral smear is unremarkable and the MCV above 70, I'd forget the whole thing. My RDW is always high from donating blood. There are some variants of thalassemia minor that will produce this and puzzle people over a lifetime, though MCH is usually lowish.
What type of anemia has elevated rdw-cv, normal mcv, low mch, low mchc and low hemoglobin? Iron is normal range.
Need more info: Do you have a chronic illness? All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the limited data you provided suggests anemia of chronic illness. It would be prudent to consult the doctor who ordered the tests. 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. Practice safe sex, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine.
What does it mean when you have a high rdw, normal RBC, low hemoglobin, low hematocrit, low mcv, &mch and low mchc?
Normal hemoglobin, wbc and rbc. Normal mcv. Low mch and mchc. High rdw. High monocyte %. Taking iron for 3 months.
Not an issue: The rdw, mch and mchc are only helpful in evaluating patients with anemia. ron would be unexpected to alter these numbers.
I have hemoglobin 10.6 (low).I have iron serum of 25 micrograms. Dl. Unsaturated IBC 358 High, Total TIBC 383 (normal) and % iron sat 7%.My RBC normal, (MCV MCH, MCHC) low and RDW hIgh iS it IDA/ACD?
What do blood results mean? TIBC, Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, RBC & MCH all LOW. Retic count & RDW are HIGH. Iron, Tran Sat, Ferriten, MCV NORMAL
39 year old woman with mild/moderate rheumatoid arthritis. Cbc done - hemoglobin, hematocrit, MCV levels low, but iron is in normal range?
My mcv, mch, mchc and hemoglobin are all a tad low. Rdw a tad high. All the rest of my blood work is completely normal. Doc says mild anemia?
All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, it would have helped to have the actual data, rather than your interpretation of "tad low".

Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
5 year old has persistent normocytic anemia. High WBC, platelets, low RBC and hemoglobin. Normal MCV, MCH, ferritin and reticulocyte. What's the cause?
Need more tests,,,: This is hard to determine as this is the case of a child. Other tests like a peripheral blood smear might help to find the cause. It would be best to see the doctor, preferably a pediatrician, for more tests and an exam. Best of luck.
Rapid heart rate during period. Low hemoglobin, low MCH and high rdw. Borderline normal mcv. Also had mildly low 3.3 potassium 7 weeks ago. I see dr tues, what type of anemia and safest way to treat?
You probably: Have iron deficiency anemia. Common causes are blood loss, lack iron on diet, pregnancy, inability to absorb iron due for example celiac disease. In your case blood loss due to possibly heavy period. I imaging endoscopy study negative. Treatment iron supplement. Iron studies also indicated if in doubt. All above can give you tachycardia and fatigue. But thyroid test indicated.See 2 more doctor answers
