Hi Welcome to HEALTHCARE MAGIC..

I have gone through your query and can understand your concern...
According to your blood tests Your white blood cell count, haemoglobin & haemocrit values are normal.
Your Red bood cell count is higher than normal. Your red blood cell size (MCV) & red cell haemoglobin(MCH & MCHC) is lower than normal. These values are normally found in patients with slight iron deficiency in body, chronic blood loss, patients who are exposed to chronic low oxygen in air, COPD (chronic obstructive lung disease), congestive heart disease & other related problems. There is also increase in size variation of red blood cell(RDW).

Refer to your physician
Hope this information helps
