Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 months ago.

those levels are not worrisome.

what is more important is your WBC white blood cell count and hemoglobin levels and platelet levels are normal for your CBC or complete blood count

if you are on lipitor, you need your liver enzymes, AST, ALT, ADH levels monitored

I just received my blood work and all those you listed are normal ranges
Expert:  Dr. David replied 11 months ago.

I see.

sounds like you had a CBC blood test.

then I would not worry about the MCH or RBC levels.

those are really only looked at if your hemoglobin levels are abnormal to see why you may be anemic (low hemoglobin)

but if you don't have anemia, you don't have to worry.

let me know if you have other questions.
