Understanding Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin in New Delhi

What is Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin in New Delhi?

A Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin test helps measure the amount of hemoglobin in the red blood cells (RBCs). This test is a key indicator of how effectively oxygen is being distributed throughout the body. It is often done as part of a complete blood count test that also measures other types of blood cells.

What does Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin measure?

An MCH test measures the average amount of hemoglobin in a single red blood cell (RBC). Hemoglobin is an iron-containing protein in RBCs, and its major function is to transport oxygen from the lungs to all body parts. This test provides information about how much oxygen is being delivered to the body by a certain number of RBCs.

Answers to Patient Concerns & Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) about Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin in New Delhi

Frequently Asked Questions about Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin in New Delhi

Q. What does it mean if your MCH is low?

Low MCH levels mean your hemoglobin production is less than normal. As a result, the number of healthy red blood cells also decreases, leading to anemia.

Q. What does it mean if MCH is high?

High MCH levels are commonly a sign of macrocytic anemia. This condition occurs when the blood cells are too big, which can be a result of vitamin B12 or folic acid deficiency in the body.

Q. How is the MCH test done?

The MCH test is done using a sample of blood that is withdrawn from a vein in your arm. The blood sample is collected in a vial and sent to the lab for analysis.

Q. Is there any risk associated with the MCH test?
