Dear sir could you please tell me what m.c.h on a c.b.c means, I know I know its mean cell hemoglobin but what would it represent if it was borderline high. Does HIV have any effects on this count. everything else is within range Having some concerns with my neg test even after 18 mnths any info will be greatly appreciated thnx
Response from Dr. Holodniy
The MCH is a measure of how much hemoglobin each red blood cell has in it. Sometimes it can be high when people have anemia and their bone marrow is making lots of new cells. Some of these cells are larger and pack more hemoglobin. It does not sound like you have anemia, so the increased value may be a normal variant. MH
