Detailed Answer:
Hello XXXXXX
Thanks for writing to HCM

I have gone through your reports in detail.
No,you are not suffering from anemia.Findings are absolutely normal.
Hemoglobin level and RBC count is within normal limit.
MCV is towards lower limit.It can be considered as normal.
MCH is mildly decreased.It is not concerning.

Normal hemoglobin and RBC count excludes anemia.
Rest of the findings are normal.

Get well soon.

Hello XXXXX
Thanks for writing back

Though in the strictest sense you're not anemic.But mildly low MCV and MCH may be due to low serum iron.Serum iron and ferritin level are not estimated in your case.
You should take iron rich foods like meat,chicken,green leafy vegetables,jaggery,dates etc.
You can also take short course of iron and folic acid tablets.

Hi, I am 43 years old and my wife is 35. Last year we decided to start a family but were unsuccessful. I was tchecked and found to be having low sperm count and motility. I have been advised to take Paternia (once a day) and Maxoza (once a day). It's been more than 3 months since I have been taking this medicine, without any succes. My wife was checked too and has been given a clean chit. However, she has been taking Folic acid tablets as advised by the doctor. Would greatly appreciate your advice. Thanks very much!
