... anemia work ups are fun and for the most part relatively straight forward ... in your case you hemoglobin/hematocrit, which are relative measures to determine if your anemic are both low, so by definition you are anemic next you want to look at your MCV(mean corpuscular volume - red cell volume), your's is low, so by definition you have a microcytic anemia you then...

... need others opinion on my situation. This may turn out long and I apologize in advance. I have two artificial joints...hip and knee. In January I was standing in my office on a Friday and felt sickness hit me. I became feverish and my joints became sore and stiff. I immediately called my PCP and the office told me to call them on Monday if I still had symptoms...it was... (1 replies)
... Hello All! Back in August I was told my Iron Stores were close to zero, my doctor was trying to convince me to have Iron Infusions... I begged her to let me try supplements and see if I could raise my levels on my own. (By the way, the anemia is due to heavy periods) They suggested ablation or birth control, I didn't want to do either (hubby had vasectomy and I was worried... (1 replies)

... I was diagnosed as iron deficient about a year ago and have been on supplementation on and off since (mainly on). I recently took another blood test in a non fasting state to see what my blood work looked like and while i was pleased to see my ferritin levels finally going up, my iron levels and transferrin saturation seemed quite low. Also my haemoglobin and RBC count seem... (7 replies)
... is stumped, and he said that with my very healthy, iron rich diet I shouldn't have values like this. I am wondering why, if I'm iron deficient, the MCV, MCH, and MCHC values are normal. They are supposed to be low in iron deficiency anemia, right? ... (5 replies)
... Your MCV and MCH are just very slightly low and probably not low enough to warrant any concern unless they persist in being low for several months or begin getting much lower. ... (3 replies)
... I got my blood labs back from the doc today, but it wasn't without a hitch. I just found out today that, the iron level as well as te TIBC should have been done after fasting for 12 hours. My dr. didn't mention this, and the tests were done on me, with no fasting at all. From my understanding, the ferritin level was okay to be done without fasting though. My dr. said she will...

... new here and would like some help figuring out a situation I have had for a while. I have always been 'anemic'. Whenever, I get labs done my hgb, hct, MCV, MHC, MCHC are always low. And in order to deal with my anemia I always supplemented with iron. ... (0 replies)
... r values within a week because I know they can fluctuate, and they didn't change THAT much I don't think. But why would these same values change and not the MCV, MCHC and RDW? ... (7 replies)
... Hi all ~ I've posted a couple questions recently about symptoms related to anemia; however, I did not have my full CBC results until today and some of the things on it confuse me a little. I was wondering if anyone could help me understand them a little better. The results were: Hgb 9.6 (L, but not as bad as I originally thought) Hematocrit 31.5 (L) MCV 75 (L) MCH... (0 replies)
... "MCHC is diminished ("hypochromic") in microcytic anemias, and normal ("normochromic") in macrocytic anemias (due to larger cell size, though the hemoglobin amount or MCH is high, the concentration remains normal). MCHC is elevated ("hyperchromic") in hereditary spherocytosis, sickle cell disease and homozygous hemoglobin C disease" Re your iron, B12 and folate levels, I'd... (1 replies)
... Anyway, I'm wondering what is the significance of high mchc and mpv. I didn't get to ask my hematologist because she just handed me the labwork on my way out! ... (5 replies)
... I have had numerous problems with my son, he always seems ill, weak, pale. In his blood tests over the past two years there are few things that have always been consistent: UREA - always high LDH- always high Uric Acid & GGTP always low CRP AND ESR - sometimes high In addition to this he has a constant low grade fever, swollen lymph nodes in neck (for over a year), his...

... Had forgotten. This is important. Again. Sorry for the length. Her RDW always runs high, and her MCV, MCH and MCHC are always low. ... (2 replies)
... At first look your white blood cell count is low and your MCH is low. I would call your doctor's nurse to ask for clarification of your labs. ... (2 replies)
... Ok,so after some frustration,I decided to post here in case someone could help me.I hadn't been to the doctors in years and finally got one,who I thought could help me,but she said some things to me that made me realize she's not a very...um..in depth doctor?She's fairly nice,but I know more about some things than she does somehow.And now I feel like I can't talk to her...

... I would definitely get your iron and ferritin levels checked. You could be iron deficient and have those symptoms and not be anemic. (4 replies)
... MCV MCH is not a problem. ... (4 replies)
... Hello, I am looking for some expert insight into my recent lab results, these were taken as investigative for chronic back pain. However the results suggest something I have suspected for a long time.. To cut a long story short, I had a barrage of symptoms that came on very quickly about 2.5 years ago including feeling of dizziness and going unconscious, major palps and fast... (0 replies)
... I got my results back recently. The testing was done as ENT couldn't figure out why I'm having lump in throat issues. He thought it was reflux and gave me a PPI which was useless basically. Anyway, so now we're one step in a concrete direction finally and I can hopefully figure out what to do next and find a more helpful doctor. Results seems somewhat normal (I'm only... (3 replies)
