This is DR. David

low MCV of 74 could be due to low iron and low ferritin levels.

viral infection can cause elevated WBC of 11.2 and infection or inflammation in the body can cause platelets to be high as well as platelets are an acute phase reactant which can be elevated when there is inflammation in the body.

I am not worried about lymphocytes or eosinophil levels.

diet and genetics play roles in your cholesterol levels.

let me know if you have questions.
