MPV blood level low

Does anyone know a possible significance of a low MPV blood level? (I am mildly anemic).

Thanks

Re: MPV blood level low

MPV stands for mean platelet volume. It is an average measure of red blood cells in a mircoliter of blood. By itself does not mean too much but can tip a doctor off that other levels of blood tests should be monitored closely for drops or rises in red blood cells.
