In brief: Labs

Lab results are meaningful only in the context of the person.
High MCHC in a healthy person may simply be a problem with the calibration of the machine or reflect that reference ranges are set so that a few percent of healthies fall outside on either end. I'd ignore sed rate / ESR. You'll do yourself a huge favor if you address the vitamin D issue -- sunlight, diet, supplements.
