MCV and MCH are the part of the complete hemogram that indicates that the cell size especially the Red blood cell size, that Mean corpuscular hemoglobin, the content of the hemoglobin how much it is , and depending on it we can conclude if the person is having microcytic hypochromicanemia. So depending on that if the hemoglobin is also less, there are so many reasons like iron deficiency anemia, anemia for chronic diseases, thalassemia or sideroblastic anemia. Depending on that treatment can be planned. So along with MCV and MCH, it has to be looked in to the peripheral smear, it has to be looked into if the peripheral smear also if the person is having microcytic hypochromic anemia. So it is confirmed that it is an iron deficiency anemia. Depending on that the treatment can be started.
These are all very relative blood values, they are not absolute values and they have to be judged by the whole blood picture. In the first place there is no need to increase or decrease the MCH once the complete blood picture will improve, the mean corpuscular volume will improve. So go to a doctor and improve the entire blood picture, not just these two values.

Anemia is a sign or symptom of many diseases and conditions. If a person has anemia - low red blood cell count - What steps does hematologist follow to identify the cause of anemia? Perhaps you can give some examples... Sure. There are two laboratory test features that we pay most attention to diagnose anemia correctly. #1: What is the reticulocyte count? The reticulocytes are young red blood cells. If a person is bleeding, or destroying blood, their bone marrow will respond and make more blood. So reticulocyte count will go up. If reticulocyte count does not increase, there is a problem with red blood cell production by bone marrow. Test #2 is "MCV", or Mean Corpuscular Volume. This is the size of the red blood cell. People with iron deficiency have very small red blood cells. So their MCV decreases. People with thalassemia or other problems with hemoglobin have very small red blood cells. These patients have low MCV. People with Vitamin B12 deficiency or folic acid deficiency have high MCV - their red blood cells are large. People with bone marrow diseases - myelodysplastic syndrome, aplastic anemia, leukemia - they also mostly have large red blood cells. Then there is a middle ground - patients with anemia and normal MCV, normal red blood cells' size. This can be anemia of inflammation, previously it was called "anemia of chronic disease". It could be anemia caused by chronic kidney disease. Kidneys produce the hormone erythropoietin - it is a signal to the bone marrow to make more blood. There could be other types of anemias with normal MCV. So this is the initial algorithm to find the cause of anemia. We ask, what is the reticulocyte count? And what is the MCV? [Mean Corpuscular Volume] These two tests give us a broad idea of the anemia cause. Let me give you an example of using the reticulocyte count. Let's say, somebody is anemic and their reticulocyte count is elevated. I immediately think, "This patient is bleeding or they are destroying red blood cells". Destruction of red blood cells is called "hemolysis". Often the source of bleeding can be obvious. But sometimes it is difficult to find, because blood can hide, for example, in stool [fecal masses]. Such patients with anemia should have a colonoscopy. Diagnosing hidden causes of bleeding is important. Colon polyps or colon cancer tumor can shed red blood cells into fecal masses. This bleeding into colon can be tiny, but it could be the first sign of colon cancer. Such "occult blood" can be detected by a sensitive lab test of fecal masses. That is correct. If colonoscopy does not find a polyp or a tumor - the purpose of colonoscopy is to look for colon polyps or colon cancer, because we know that colon polyps can turn into cancerous tumors... So if colonoscopy is negative, we then do upper endoscopy, EGD. We look for gastric ulcer, duodenal ulcer, gastritis, or another polyp that might be bleeding. Source of upper gastrointestinal bleeding could be a rare tumor, GIST, GastroIntestinal Stromal Tumor. which often first manifests by a bleeding into duodenum. - Yes! If there's no bleeding, I want to ask the question: Is it possible that patient's body destroys its own red blood cells? [hemolysis] Hemolysis can happen for several reasons. A common cause of hemolysis is autoimmune hemolytic anemia - when your immune system is making antibody that attacks red blood cells. In those situations we look for products of breakdown of red blood cells. It's not just anemia, are there more clues? Is lactate dehydrogenase enzyme, LDH, elevated? Is bilirubin elevated? Is haptoglobin decreased? Haptoglobin is a "mop" that removes hemoglobin from broken red blood cells. That is another branch point: is patient bleeding or hemolysis take place? If we find that a patient has nutritional deficiency it's easy to correct it by giving patient vitamins. To treat iron deficiency anemia can be more difficult.
