Good Morning,
I just got my lab work results and was hoping you could point me in the right direction
RDW: 15.5, MCC: 86.9, MCH: 28.3, AND MCHC: 32.6.

Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

RDW measures red blood cell distribution width.
Yours look normal still.
MCV is mean corpuscular volume or average red cell size --yours is normal.
MCH and MCHC measure hemoglobin concentration in the red cell --your numbers are good.

So, these results are essentially normal.
Not concerning.

Thank you for sharing your concerns with us today. If you have any additional questions or need further clarifications, please do not hesitate to ask. I am here to answer them. I wish you good health. Regards, ***** *****
