MCH (Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin) Results?
I want to ask what does the MCH 89 result mean? blood test results. thank you
Hello, good evening Bunga Seroja ...
MCH (Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin), this condition refers to the average amount of hemoglobin components found in red blood cells. Hemoglobin itself is a blood protein that allows red blood cells to be able to deliver oxygen to cells and tissues in the body. The normal number of MCH will vary in each laboratory, the average is 80-95. Thus your MCH level can be said to be normal. Low MCH value is usually associated with anemia caused by iron deficiency, iron deficiency in the body, disorders of absorption of iron in the intestine, etc. Whereas high MCH can be caused by anemia caused by folic acid deficiency, liver disease, etc. It should be noted that the level of MCH alone is not enough to be able to diagnose a disease, and must be combined with the results of physical examination, and the results of other investigations yes ..
That's it, hope it helps ..
