I am a male, 34 years old,
Have you got a peripheral smear report too?
yes, do u want all details or the last line would do?
Peripheral Smear : Normochromic Normocytic
That will complete the study. Thanks for providing the details.
Let me brief you now.
MCV refers to average amount of hemoglobin present in your blood.
I mean MCH refers to average hemoglobin level.
In simple terms, every Red blood cell in your body contains 25.8picograms of hemoglobin.
However as your other values are normal, possibilities of such anemia is unlikely.
This is confirmed by the normal periperhal smear examination.
Hence the borderline low MCH values is probably an incidental finding, may be related to dehydration or perhaps an error too.
So you need not worry.
so both MCV & MCH being marginally below the normal range is not an issu
Low MCV and MCH would make the red blood cell microcytic and hypochromic
however as your peripheral smear is reported normocytic and normochromic along with normal red blood count and hemoglobin,
this is not a major concern to me.
Thanks a ton doc.
You can take plenty of iron diet such as meat, liver
Have a gr8 day ahead
ok... will do tha
spinach, ragi and others and recheck the values again after a few months.
We can take this ahead following second report.
Hope it is clear to you.
Do you have any other query?
no further queries.... the affirmation was to the part on understanding.
Thanks for consulting me.
Thanks once again.
Bye for now.
