Is an "almost high" MCV result significant?
( Illinois )
My doctor circled my MCV Blood Test result of 93. The report indicated 79-97 is normal but said my Vitamin B 12 Level is "fine." (Not sure why it was circled.)
I have several long-term chronic health conditions...systemic fungal infection (being treated but quite resistant; I do not eat sugar, flour, white potatoes, white rice); multiple chemical sensitivity (I try to avoid reactants as much as possible), and hypothyroidism (being treated w/Armour).
I was told by 2 physicians (many years ago) that I have such a low t-cell count (9) that it is a dangerous situation. Despite this, I am still hanging in, try to be active but tire very easily. I have tried to live as normal a life as possible, but depression sometimes sets in because of all this. I cannot take St. John's Wort and do not trust anti-depressants. I do have a positive attitude and believe in the physical-spiritual-emotional connection.
I take manganese B-12 per my chiropractor's advice due to results of hair analysis, which showed severe adrenal stress, among other things which I'm trying to correct thru supplementation (adrenal & otherwise).
I get frequent UTIs, for which I take D-Mannose
; I try to avoid antibiotics but sometimes necessary. I heal slowly.
Based on this background, is my MCV result of 93 of concern, or is it irrelevant to my health conditions?
Thank you for any comments.
