Response from Dr. Young

Hello and thanks for posting.

The tests of our kidney (creatinine) and liver (SGPT) are in the normal range.

The other tests (MCV, MCH) are a bit low and suggestive of having a particular type of anemia, characterized by having slightly smaller than normal red blood cells (that's the cell volume parameter). Iron deficiency is the most common cause of this.

I'd suggest that you speak to your health care provider about the test results and what kind of additional analysis or treatment is recommended.
