My last CBC blood test indicated RDW of 16.2, MCV 82, MCH 27.5, MCHC, 33.4 and platelets 390. The only high readings were the RDW and platelets. ?

In brief: Lowish iron?

You may be borderline iron deficient.
This often raises platelets and typically raises RDW well before you get anemic. Your physician can advise you further.
