Hematocrit measures the percentage of a person's total blood volume that consists of red blood cells.

Mean corpuscular volume (MCV) is a measurement of the average size of a single red blood cell.

With these calculation we can tell about the red cell counts and size.

If your hemoglobin is low and hematocrit and MCV are also low then it means you have low iron in your body.

If this glucose was raised in your blood then it may be a positive test for you being diabetic, this test needs a repeat before diabetes label can be placed.

Let me know if you have questions, thank you.
