What does having low HB, HCT, MCV, MCH, MCHC & high RDW but normal RBC & ferritin mean?
Rbc:5.9, mpv :13.5(high),hgb &hct: normal,plt normal, m.c.v and m.c.h slightly low,Rdw:13.3% ,m.c.h.c: normal,normal wbc, thal minor? Is my Rbc high?
Microcytosis=MCV<80: The good news is that you have normal Hgb and Hct so are not anemic at this time. When mcv and mch are low, it suggests that to maintain a normal Hct and Hbg, your body has compensated by making more rbc (high rbc) that are slightly smaller (low mcv and mch). Most common cause would be mild iron deficiency or thalassemia, but increased rbc can also be related to elevation. ...Read more

Very mild anemia: It will depend on the normal range of hb used at your laboratory where you have the test done. At my lab- the normal range used is between 12-15, so hb of 11 is only mildly anemic. It is nothing to worry much about however. In young woman like yourself- with your monthly period, you lose some iron in every cycle. This can cause mild anemia. Check your iron and take multi vitamin. D/w your md. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Iron deficiency: RDW likely high because some cells are normal size, and some are abnormal (probably small). The ferritin and TIBC suggests possible iron deficiency - a low MCV (not listed) with negative history of thalassemia would help clench it. Rarer causes could be copper deficiency, vitamin B6 deficiency, or heavy metal poisoning (lead). ...Read more

How are you feeling?: Any fever, infections? Good news: you do not have anemia. Platelet count is also normal. Total white cells number is acceptable. I believe that you made a mistake in absolute neutrophil ? The % neutrophil (seg) is 26, lower than normal. As long as you do not have fever& free from infections, you are safe. Consult with hematologist. Do not worry. Simple problem.. Can be easily handled. Thanks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
