Blood lab values and urinalysis?
My lab values are all over the place.
I have a low RBC, high MCV and high MCH; I thought this would indicate a B12 deficiency however my b12 levels are at 337.

My urinalysis was positive for ketones and had moderate RBCs (4.0). WBC was 6.0 and there were many squamous epithelial cells. Also, there were calcium oxide crystals present.

Any idea what all of this means??


(As a side note, I have Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and POTS)

Hi!
Well, apart from B12 deficiency, a high MCV can be seen in hemolytic anemia, pernicious anemia, folic acid deficiency, and in alcoholism. MCH can also be high in hemolytic anemia like hereditary spherocytosis or sickle cell disease or in homozygous hemoglobin C disease. You need to consult a hematologist and get this investigated. Also according to your urine analysis you could be having a stone in your urinary system. This may not be symptomatic as in causing you pain. However, this would need further investigations. Please consult your PCP regarding this. Take care!
