CBC test results: Elevated MCHC, elevated MCH, bottom of range for Haematocrit, everything else within normal ranges. What do these results mean?
Nothing: Your physician may want to repeat them. I trust you do not have spherocytosis or if you do, that you've been worked up. At most, a reticulocye count may be in order. Sometimes the machines can be a bit mis-calibrated. High MCHC is quite uncommon and if you feel well I wouldn't be troubled. Reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. ...Read more
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

Should i be concerned about an mchc level of 38.5 from a CBC test? I know it can be a deficiency but i've been taking a multi with B12 for 4 months.
Not MCHC pre se: There are other causes of large red cells, in addition to B12 and folate (folic acid) deficiency, including some medications. It would help to know the whole cbc. 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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
