These blood tests are not a concern, by themselves.
The RDW ad MCY values could be meaningful if there is anemia present. But I assume that you provided all the abnormal levels, and since you do not include any values for red blood count, hemoglobin, or hematocrit, they would be normal and these RDW and MCV values are not a concern.
Similarly, a chloride of 96 would only be meaningful in the context of abnormal levels of sodium or potassium or an abnormal anion gap.
So, if all the other labs were normal, then there is no concern with these lab results.
If I can provide any further information, please let me know.

All other levels were normal. I have a Dr. Appt on Wed. Should I ask any questions?
Doctor: Dr. D. Love, Doctor replied 3 years ago
There is no need to ask questions about these tests. You would only need to ask questions if you are having any symptoms or other problems.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
