In brief: Probably anemia

"range" on a lab test is where 95% or so of healthy people fall.
Your physician is probably telling you that your are mildly anemic, and you will get a workup for possible blood loss or hemolysis if this is new. Occasionally, people with mild thalassemia have high red cells because they are small in the absence of significant anemia.

Is it high or low? What else is going on? What other tests are they considering?
