Brief Answer: Please find detailed answer below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing in to us. I have read through your query in detail. Your gp might be suspecting a marginal vit B12 deficiency state which may be responsible for the increased mean corpuscular volume of your red cells. This must be confirmed by getting a peripheral blood smear analyzed by a hemalologist. You may also need certain specific tests like thyroid function and cardiac investigations too. Hope your query is answered. Do write back if you have any doubts. Regards, Dr.Vivek
