I had a blood test done last week, and the results are a bit puzzling:

Iron: 30 (28-170)
TIBC: 513 (261-478) H
% Sat: 6 (20-55) L
Ferritin: 6 (10-300) L
Hgb: 10.7 (12-16) L
Hct: 32.8 (35-47) L
Platelets: 182 (140-400)
RBC: 3.8 (4.0-5.2) L
MCV: 86 (80-100)
MCH: 28 (26-34)
MCHC: 32.6 (32.0-36.0)
MPV: 12.2 (6-9.5) H
RDW: 14.9 (11.5-14.5) H

My doc is puzzled because I don't have heavy periods, in fact I barely get them at all. Scope was negative, and so was test for Celiac. He is sending me to a hematologist because he is stumped, and he said that with my very healthy, iron rich diet I shouldn't have values like this. I am wondering why, if I'm iron deficient, the MCV, MCH, and MCHC values are normal. They are supposed to be low in iron deficiency anemia, right? Could these blood test values be pointing to something else? Any help would be great.
