Re: Mvc
Apr 2, 2012
If you're asking what could cause low MCV (not MVC) levels, then the answer is found in your following statement: "I have chronic low Hgb, and low iron storages, and ferritin levels," though low Hgb/iron/ferritin are not the only cause.

Low MCV means your red blood cells are smaller in size than normal (microcytic). It's not unusual (rather, it's common) for RBC's to be small in iron-deficiency anemia, which you have, based on your low Hgb/iron/ferritin.

What causes your anemia? This one may be both easy and complicated to figure out. Do you have heavy periods, for example? Have you been checked for hemolytic anemia? How long have you had the "lows"? Have you been on any treatment? If you give more info about your anemia, we might try to be more helpful.

Best wishes.
