MCV/MCH blood test

Does anyone have any idea why these the levels in these tests would be high?

Re: MCV/MCH blood test

High MCV means your red blood cells are unusually large. One possible cause is vitamin B12 deficiency. High MCH means your red blood cells have a lot of iron in them. The two tend to occur together.
