Thanks Lymetoo for the link. I have a lot of blood tests out of whack. I didn't know what half of them were for.

high MCV could mean vitamin deficiency such as
B12 or Folate, could also mean your body is turning out more red blood cells than it normally does including some immature RBC's known as reticulocytes. They are larger than mature red blood cells and would cause the MCV
mean corpuscular volume to be greater than normal.

It could be a delta check- done to confirm a result.
