I have a lower than normal MCH and MCHC values, does these indicate anemia?(mean corpuscular hemoglobin, MCH concentration)

I have a lower than normal MCH and MCHC values, does these indicate anemia?(mean corpuscular hemoglobin, MCH concentration)

Not really: anemia is defined as having hemoglobin below than the normal range. just because your MCHCC or MCH are slightly low -it does not mean you are anemic. you need to look at the right index. ...Read more

I had a cbc, and my mean corpuscular hemoglobin and mchc are high, what's causing it?

I had a cbc, and my mean corpuscular hemoglobin and mchc are high, what's causing it?

MCH and MCHC: Mean corpuscular hemoglobin and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration look at how "red" someone's cells are. High levels are most commonly due to a laboratory artifact but can also be seen when a person has cells called spherocytes. If your CBC was otherwise normal, i wouldn't worry about it. On the other hand, if you also have a low hemoglobin and hematocrit, you should see a hematologist. ...Read more

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

OK ...: The isolated numbers are ok, but one should interpret these through comparing prior serial values if available and correlating with current clinical pictures so to deduce their clinical significance. Why? It's because every thing always displays itself at a certain spot of its own full spectrum; likewise, any lab test does. ...Read more

What does it mean if my hemoglobin, hematocrit, MCH and MCHC is low and my RDW is high?

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 helped to know the actual values. It is likely that you have iron deficiency anemia which is common in menstruating women. Take oral iron and multivitamins. 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. 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. ...Read more
