I have these CBC results-

Hematocrit- 44.5 (34.2-43.5)
Hemoglobin- 15.2 (11.7-15.0)
RBC- 5.32 (3.96-5.28)

My MCV is 84 (80-92)
My RDW is 14.8 (12.3-14.5)

As I understand, an elevated RDW and a normal MCV indicates the beginning of Iron Deficiency Anemia. Does it have to be from a hemorrhage or could it be just mild iron deficiency? And could a high RDW be caused by anything else other than a folate/B12 Deficiency or certain genetic disorders. Could it be caused by dehydration?
Does this indicate anemia?
