Dear friend, welcome and thanks for entrusting your query here at HCM !

Your MCH (mean corpuscular hemoglobin) is normal though number higher by.8 which is to be neglected. In fact is good.

Urine mucus, blood, protein is strange.

It is probably a poorly collected sample. Should not have mucus.

I would suggest rechecking a clean catch, mid-stream urine specimen and the a renal USG if still abnormal. Urinary infections, trauma can cause such blood, protein to be positive among many causes.

I do not think it is worrisome.

I hope you are fully satisfied with the guidance I gave.
I would be glad to answer any further queries.
Thank you and Good luck !

Hello and thank you for posting your query on HCM

Presence of traces of blood and traces of proteins along with mucus thread point towards some infectious/ inflammatory process in the urinary tract.
Mild inflammations/ infections of this kind clear with medications.
MCH value of 31.8 pg is fine. An increase of 0.8 pg does not signify anything serious.
Such variations are harmless instrumental errors which are unavoidable.

Thanks and take care
