What causes elevated MCV and MCH levels in blood?
What's the cause for these higher levels?
Higher levels are caused by low Vitamin B12 and/or folic acid in blood!
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about these laboratory findings and all the inconveniences this has caused you. Ideally, I will like to see the entire report as there are other elements about platelets such as mean volume which would be very important in making sense of this number. Also, was the blood sample looked under the microscope as a simple clinging together of platelets may be responsible for this. Finally, do you have any bleeding problems?
Higher MCV And MCH are caused by low levels of vitamin B12 and/folic aid in blood. I will suggest that you continue with the supplements and eat healthy.
I will like to look at the entire report for more insights about the platelets. To upload an image, click on the upload icon to the right of your dashboard and follow the onscreen instructions.
