NP, DR, or PA - Would a high CPK results cause red blood cell issues?

I'm trying to figure out why my red blood cells are always low despite iron test coming back normal. I'm very active and I had a CBC that was low in WBC(3.0), RBC(4.13), HGB(13.3), HCT(38.5) and high in MCH(32.2). This has been a couple tests now intervals between them about 3 to 6 months.

I had a high retic test 2.2 too.

Do you think it's funky stuff with leukemia or something? My MD doesn't seem too concern and neither was I until he order the retic test.

    Those results are not alarming in any way. You might want to take the iron supplements I assume your doc has recommended.
