Hello All-

I was hoping someone could help me interpret my husbands lab results. He has been feeling lousy for a long time, suffers from depression and anxiety, high heart rate, difficulty catching his breath, cannot tolerate any physical exertion and he has developed sores in the corners of his mouth that won't go away no matter what he puts on them. His doctor ordered some blood work and I have posted the results and ranges below:

WBC- 6.9 (3.9-11.0 k/mm3)
RBC- 3.52 (lo) (4.30-5.80 M/mm3)
HGB- 13.5 (13.0-17.0 g/dL)
HCT- 40.4 (34.0-51.0 %)
MCV- 115 (h) (80-100 fL)
MCH- 38.2 (h) (27-33 pg)
MCHC- 33.3 (31-36 g/dL)
RDW- 15.9 (h) (0-15.0%)
PLT- 389 (130-400 K/mm3)
Folic Acid -13.4 (>5.4 ng/mL)
Methylmalonic- 128 (73-376 nmol/L)
Ferritin- 305 (5-365 ng/mL)
Vit D 25 Hydrox- 35.5 (32.0-100.0 ng/mL)
TSH- 2.03 (.35-4.0)
T4 Free- .94 (.80-1.90)

For the past five years, everytime he has had a CBC done, his RBC comes in low and the MCV and MCH are high. His doctor said this is not a concern. He has also been supplementing with D3 to bring that level up since it was at 25 the last time he had it checked three months ago. Thank you for your help.
