my son 8 years old have low MPV, high RBC ERYTHROCYTE, low MCV, high RDW-CV and low RDW-sd, please what can i do to make there values back to normal?
Hello! Thank you for asking on HCM! First, a comprehensive investigation should be performed to find the principal clinical disorder and to correlate these lab test findings accordingly. Treating the appropriate etiology, resolves lab test disorders when feasible. A primary hematological disorder should be ruled out first. Discuss wit han internist for a differential diagnosis. Greetings!

It seems you are having dimorphic anemia. You require combination of Vit B12, folic acid and ferrous fumarate. Take it until hemoglobin returns to 12g%. Also increase eggs, pulses, green leafy vegetables, chicken and red meat in diet. Get a reticulocyte count, after 15 days of starting medication. If its increasing, it is nutritional deficiency. Any further queries, happy to help again. Thanks.
