Have blood report. Can any online doctor help me to read it?

CBC shows slightly low hemoglobin , low MCV but high RBC hgb 12.1 (13.2-17.1), mcv 64.4 (80-100), mch 20.1 (27-33), rbc 6.03 (4.2-5.8) Not necessarily looking for a diagnosis given the lack of detail but, rather, an explanation on how you can have lots of red blood cells but low hemoglobin -- what is the process there? Thank you!

Your report is showing slightly low hemoglobin low MCV. low MCH . It is called Microcytic Hypochromic Anemia . It means size of RBC is small and hemoglobin content of RBC is also low This type of picture is seen in Iron defeciency , Thallassemias trait and lead poisoining . Go for Iron profile , thallasemia profile or HB electrophoresis . .Some times there may be some other nutritional defeciency also . AlL other abnormality can be corrected except thallesemia trait. In case of thallesemia you should get your spouse also checked for thallasemia as it may transmit in your offsprings if she also has it in genes.
