Customer Question

Hello Dr. Basu, my name is ***** *****. I am viewing my most recent labs which have several high & lows on with abbreviations I am not familiar with. Such as MCH @26.4?
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I have been told I have leukocytosis (18,000 >) and I am going for a consult with hematology/oncology on Monday. I had an episode of syncope/vomiting/nausea, & was sent to ER. Dr. dx me with COPD.

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

MCH refers to mean hemoglobin concentration per red blood cell.

High MCH means more hemoglobin can be due to the increased red blodo cell count, or even COPD from chronic oxygen deprivation.

What other abnormalities you have?
Best wishes,
