High hemoglobin, MCH- What does this mean?

Hello All,

I got my blood test results back recently and my numbers are as follows: Hematocrit- 52.4; Hemoglobin- 18.4; MCH- 32.9; MCHC- 35.1.

Are these numbers dangerous? What might they mean, exactly? They are elevated from last year. Waiting to hear back from the doctor...

A bit worried about this... thank you.

Re: High hemoglobin, MCH- What does this mean?


i just had some blood work done i know all labs very but i had a cbc done and for what you listed mine are as follows:

hemocrit- 38.9 hemoglobin- 13.2 mch-31.1 mchc 34.0

according to my values your hemocrit and hemo are high..your mch and mchc run as normal to my values. for the mchc the values are between 32.3-35.6 and the mch 26.8-33.2 for the hemoglobin is 11.6-15.3 and hemocrit 34.4-45.7. Im not sure exactly what these mean i would either talk to a doc or get the definition online.
just my words not to used for medical advice your numbers dont seem to be to high. goodluck
