MCV usually indicate anemia, they are smaller then the average number and aren't carrying the oxygen they should to your cells, organs, etc. Combined with the high rdw this would most definitely indicate an anemia problem.

... Let's please keep this thread going! I'm sorry I don't have answers, but I'm in the same boat as you (low RBC count, high MCV, high folate, good B12). So far no doctor or message board or PubMed search has explained this phenomenon, nor even acknowledged that it exists! The few of us here are the first I've found with those lab parameters. I wonder if we have other traits... (10 replies)
