Vitamin deficiency: Large (macrocytic) red blood cells usually result from a deficiency of vitamin B12 or Folic Acid (folate). If you are taking those and your macrocytes don't improve, you may not be able to absorb the vitamins from you GI tract. You may wish to see your doctor again or consult a hematologist if things don't improve. ...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

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
