high MCH, MCHC levels

I noticed that I have had high MCH and MCHC levels for the past 12yrs. or so and not one doctor has said anything to me about this. I am low thyroid X8 years, and I have mild fibromyalgia.
What is the significance of these levels if any?
Many Thanks.

Re: high MCH, MCHC levels

I looked those up because my husband's are very high also. If I remember correctly and perhaps an expert can jump in, I thing it is the size and number of red blood cells. In my husband's case he has hemolytic anemia.

Re: high MCH, MCHC levels

I too have high MCH, but am anemic and low WBC count at the same time. No answers, I am just in the same spot
