I have been getting blood test results since December with
not interpreted on their own, no significant changes
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic
It is understandable to be concerned re any deviation from the norm but in this case, it is not likely worrying.
MPV and basophils are not interpreted on their own. They are part of a full or complete blood count and are interpreted along with other values.
MPV looks at the size of the platelets, the normal range can vary slightly from one lab to the next but in most labs the lower limit is approximately 7 to 7.5.
This means that your value of 6.9 is not significantly different. The difference is not significant to indicate any issue and as mentioned, MPV is not interpreted by itself but along with the platelet count.
Basophils are a type of white blood cell. They are interpreted along with the total white cell count and not on their own.
Other types of white blood cells would be neutrophils, lymphocytes, eosinophils etc.
Basophils can sometimes be elevated in a person with allergies.
Summary: neither of these are interpreted on their own, basophils can be altered in persons with allergies, MPV is related to platelet size but is interpreted with the total platelets
I hope this helps , feel free to ask any other questions
