Yes, you can do something about it

Yes, you can do something about it. Please read my page on MCV Blood Test to learn what you can do about it and why your doctor doesn't recognize it as a problem.

I forgot to add that I also have
‎Diverticulosis. I already eat mostly healthy foods but I will try to cut out gluten an see if it helps. I don't feel that is my reason for Macrocytosis, so any other advice would be helpful. Thank you.


Kerri's Answer: If you have Diverticulosis, then I suspect gluten sensitivity even MORE. Almost no one who has gluten sensitivity thinks that is their problem until they get off of gluten. I can assure you that anyone with ANY serious chronic illness almost certainly has some degree of gluten sensitivity. If you have any diagnosed gastrointestinal illness, then it's practically 100% certain that you have gluten sensitivity.
