    RBC - Red blood cells (erythrocytes - eh-REETH-ro-site) Ref. Range 4.20 - 5.70

    Cells that deliver oxygen throughout the body and make blood look red.

    A low RBC can indicate anemia, which can lead to fatigue.

    MCV - Mean Corpuscular Volume Ref. Range 80 - 97

    Measures the size of red blood cells. Larger or smaller than normal red blood cells may indicate anemia.

    MCH - Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Ref. Range 27.5 - 33.5

    Measures the amount of hemoglobin in red blood cells. Both hemoglobin and hematocrit are used to calculate this number. Low levels indicate anemia.

    It means that the red blood cells are smaller than average. There's not much consequence to this when hemoglobin and iron levels are normal but small RBCs could be a symptom of some type of problem. Its also possible to simply have RBCs that are different from the norm, and this is normal for you. If you have been feeling good, there is probably no reason to think anything is wrong.
