    What does my blood test report indicate?

Posted on Thu, 13 Jul 2017 in Blood Disorders
Question: My RDW is high (14.9) my MCH is low (27.2), my MCHC is 341, and Hemoglobin 151. Any idea what this could mean?

Brief Answer:
UPload the entire report!

Detailed Answer:

Kindly upload the entire report. This is very important as there are other elements of the report that you have not stated which are needed to make a well informed assessment. Also, some for the values seem misreported(MCHC: 341). By uploading the copy, all these would be clear and allow for a personalized and helpful response.

To upload an image, simply click on the link to upload a file and follow the instructions. If this proves difficult, please send the image by mail to YYYY@YYYY and request that the image should be uploaded to your query.

I do promise to get back to you with more insights and helpful recommendations as soon as the requested information gets here.
