Hi there and thank you for the question. I am a Registered Nurse and will be happy to help you today.
Low creatinine is indicative usually of a low protein diet. However, it could mean kidney disease (less likely). Low MCHC and high MPV are usually signs of anemia. I don't the reason for the testing you had or if the Dr plans on repeating the tests, but most times if the above are elevated and it's just an isolated event, then nothing is done. If you return and the levels are still elevated, then more investigation will be done to rule out causes such as idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura vs hypoproductive thrombocytopnenia. So, I would return to the MD office or lab and have these repeated in another couple of weeks to see if they have returned to normal or if they are still elevated. Reply back if I can help you further or explain anything in more detail.
I was having my cholesterol checked because it has been high in the past few yrs the good thing is they are coming down.
April 2012 i was also checked and my creatinine was not checked but it was in 2010 and 2013 it was .6 .
MCHC 31.7 2013 MCHC 32.5 2012
MPV 11.2 2013 MCHC 11.1 2012
so to me it looks like to me my mchc is getting lower and my mpv is getting higher and creatinine is staying the same.
