Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV)

Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV)

MCV is a part of the Red Cell Indices and done in Hemogram or CBC.

Why test for Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) at Symbion VIP Diagnostics, Ahmedabad ?

MCV stands for mean corpuscular volume. There are three main types of corpuscles (blood cells) in your blood–red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. An MCV blood test measures the average size of your red blood cells, also known as erythrocytes. Red blood cells move oxygen from your lungs to every cell in your body. Your cells need oxygen to grow, reproduce, and stay healthy. If your red blood cells are too small or too large, it could be a sign of a blood disorder such as anemia, a vitamin deficiency, or other medical condition.

If your results show that your red blood cells are smaller than normal, it may indicate:

  • Iron-deficiency anemia or other types of anemia
  • Anemia is a condition in which your blood has a lower than normal amount of red blood cells. Iron-deficiency anemia is the most common form of anemia.
  • Thalassemia, an inherited disease that can cause severe anemia

If your results show that your red blood cells are larger than normal, it may indicate:

  • A vitamin B12 deficiency
  • A deficiency in folic acid, another type of B vitamin
  • Liver disease
  • Hypothyroidism

If your MCV levels are not in the normal range, it doesn't necessarily mean that you have a medical problem needing treatment. Diet, activity level, medicines, a women's menstrual cycle, and other considerations can affect the results. Talk to your health care provider to learn what your results mean.

The laboratory test results are NOT to be interpreted as results of a "stand-alone" test. The test results have to be interpreted after correlating with suitable clinical findings and additional supplemental tests/information. Your healthcare providers will explain the meaning of your tests results, based on the overall clinical scenario.
