Brief Answer:
Please attach the scans of reports

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

Sorry for my delayed response.

The MCH is hemoglobin content of red blood cells. Normal range is 27 to 31 picograms/cell. It cannot cross beyond 60 considering the size of the RBC. 332 is very high and impractical.

I would like to see report once. Please attach the scan of the same here on the right side of this query page.
