Asbestos lung disease can affect your lung's oxygen absorbing capacity but cannot really affect your hemoglobin level.

Hi!
A low MCH indicates low hemoglobin. Low hematocrit can be due to anemia, malnutrition, destruction of red cells by spleen, bone marrow failure, and blood loss as in stomach ulcers and irritable bowel disease or in kidney stones. Leukemia, multiple myeloma and rheumatoid arthritis are the other problems with low hematocrit. Since RBC is also low, maybe there is increase blood loss or hemolytic anemia.
Monocytosis or high monocyte count is seen in subacute bacterial endocarditis, syphilis,  viral infections, kala azar, malaria, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, IBS, lipid storage diseases, sarcoidosis etc.  
Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
