[QUOTE=brookiebear21]I just got my son's recent bloodwork back from the doctor, and I am confused because most of his levels are the same indicating anemia but his RBC count is high and out of normal range. Is this possible?
His HCG is low
MCV very low
MCH low
MCHC normal
RBC high
Ferritin normal.

My son has just been diagnosed with being incapable of absorbing iron, but can someone explain how he is anemic but his RBC is high? I don't understand how this is possible,
Thx[/QUOTE]
There are cases where the body will over-produce red blood cells, but they are small, poorly formed, and do not accomplish much in the way of oxygenating blood.
