I just took a blood test and my family has had a history of anemia. Here's the numbers:

WBC 6.6 (4.4 - 10)
RBC 5.8 (4.2 - 5.2)
Hemoglobin 12.6 (12 - 15)
Hematocrit 40.2 (36 - 45)
MCV 70 (83 - 98)
MCH 21.9 (27 - 34.5)

Is it possible that I have thasselemia? or is it because of a diet-caused iron deficiency?
x3virgie--I don't know, you can have both iron deficiency and Thasselemia at the same time. Look up Thasselemia on CBC. Often times people with this disorder have a low MCV and microcytic anemia that looks the same as iron deficiency anemia. Do you have it in your family? I really don't know too much about this. Only a doctor can diagnose you. Take care. FLFG :)
