Re: What Does a High MCV Count Indicate?

Hi, A high MCV means the average volume of your red blood cells is high. This could be caused by anything from a medication you're taking, liver disease, a vitamin B12 or folate deficiency, or something else. What does your doctor think?

Ahigh mcv count means you have enlarged red blood cells, what is your mcv? the term is called macrocytosis, it can be caused for liver or thyroid disease, vitamin defiences certain medications and believe it or not alcohol, even 2 drinks a day can raise your mcv, its the toxicity from the alcohol that affects the bone marrow, or it could be a blood or bone marrow disorder, only the dr. can run further tests to find out what is causing the high mcv, good luck!
