Could be normal.: Not sure why you would have blood drawn 3 months after having normal labs in a young and healthy female? There may be more to the story.... ? These labs could be seen as part of a viral syndrome. May be best to repeat them at some point. ...Read more

My blood test shows that.... Thet Hgb, PCV normal and RBCs Count high and MCV, MCH and MCHC low and RDW-CV high ........what is that means?

My blood test shows that.... Thet Hgb, PCV normal and RBCs Count high and MCV, MCH and MCHC low and RDW-CV high ........what is that means?

Thalassemia minor?: With normal packed cell volume, high red cell count, low MCV, I'd consider you may have thalassemia minor. This is good to know because if you marry someone else who has this, the children may have the very serious thalassemia major. Talk with your physician about this and what he/she thinks is actually going on. ...Read more

Everybody...: ...Is "susceptible" to HIV - as in, able to catch it if exposed. If the question is "do I have hiv, " only an HIV test can answer that with any degree of reliability, and the tests you mention do not help with that question one way or another. ...Read more

Im 28yrs old male 5'8 153lbs should I worry that my mchc blood test is 36.1?

Low iron: If the MCHC level is below 28%, this is considered too low. The MCHC level can be too low because of blood loss over time, or too little iron in the body. ...Read more

Blood test revealed low abs mono, low HgB and low McHc. Are these connected at all?

Maybe: Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside. However, an anemia (low Hgb) is ALWAYS worth investigating. Your physician will guide you here. Don't be concerned with a slightly low absolute monocyte count. ...Read more

I am 25 yrs old. I had my blood test and got report low calcium and high in mchc;  mch; mcv.  What these terms mean?

Not enough info.: Lab results usually are numbers, and numbers are just numbers, with little meaning unless a doctor takes in the whole picture of what's going on with his patient. The ordering doctor may or may not consider the results a problem, depending on the patient's symptoms and her past medical conditions. ...Read more

Dear Doctor. I recently got my blood test and the result shows high MCHC level. What could be the cause? Result is attached.

Question significanc: MCHC is rarely of use as a test as long as you are not anemic(have a normal Hemoglobin(Hb) level). So tell us about your Hb. If it is >12 Gms, you can forget about your MCHC, as it has no significance unless you are Anemic(Hb <12 Gms) ...Read more

Check ferritin level: Is the MCV 70? IF so, that would suggest a blood disorder-thalassemia or hemoglobin E. Because the hemoglobin is normal, or almost so, this suggests the disorder would be in "trait" or heterozygous form, with little or no symptoms or consequences. However, it would be common to have iron prescribed, mistaking this for iron deficiency, and people can then develop too much iron in their body. ...Read more

Which one of these can cause a low MCH and mchc in blood test,when deficient - iron OR b12?

Which one of these can cause a low MCH and mchc in blood test,when deficient - iron OR b12?

Homework?: Iron deficiency produces small cells with less hemoglobin (low MCH, MCHC). In B12 deficiency, there is no problem making hemoglobin, but making enough DNA is impossible, and the nuclear maturation cannot keep up with hemoglobinization, hence large cells. ...Read more

What does a high MCH and a high MCHC mean on a blood test. My Folic Acid was also high. Thank you! ?

What does a high MCH and a high MCHC mean on a blood test. My Folic Acid was also high. Thank you! ?

Need the numbers: 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 been helpful to have the actual numbers. High MCH and MCHC in themselves are not a cause for concern. High folic acid is okay too. ...Read more
