Blood work results, what are the meanings of the abreviations
Nov 29, 2009
I recently had blood work done. I received the results in the mail but I don't know what some of the abreviations mean. these are the ones I was wondering about: RDW-SD, RDW-CV, and MPV. the first two were low and the third one was high. what does that mean?
Response from Dr. Holodniy
These markers all have to do with red blood cell size. You will have to speak with your doctor as to the significance.
