New test results
Aug 1, 2008
I had my blood taken again on Tuesday the 29th, and here are the new results vs. the old ones taken on the 23rd:

Hemoglobin -- was 101, is now 107
Hematocrit -- was 0.30, is now 0.32
MCV -- was 76, is now 77
MCH -- was 25, is now 26
MCHC -- was 332, is now 553
RDW -- was 16.1, is now 16.2 (this seems high, normal levels are 11.5 - 15.5)
Platelets -- were 266, are now 315

Seems like a decent improvement for six days on iron supplements and eating lots of iron rich foods. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Also, does anyone know what MCV, MCH, MCHC and RDW are???

Thanks for any info, and for everyone's support -- it's nice to know I'm not alone in this!
