My MCV test came back at 103 but B-12 was normal. All the screens were normal as well. What does this indicate?

Elevated MCV and Alcohol

I was told that an elevated MCV is related to alcohol intake and not a B12 deficiency. Is this incorrect information? I've read your link several times and I do not see any reference to alcohol??

[Kerri's note: alcohol intake causes low vitamin levels, so both are correct, but alcohol intake is not the ONLY cause of a high MCV]
