Where did you 'read that high MCV can occur with people in cirrhosis'
Looking at cbc reports I see that they fluctuate a bit but generally reach a fairly consistent level with some rising and falling. It's the riba at work and it's affecting your red blood celss - which it's supposed to do. I thought you said your doc ruled out cirrhosis?
My mcv fluctuates slightly. a month before i knew i had hep, the holistic doc said take more of the b12. if i remeber correctly she said that the high mcv meant my cells were large. But i hve noticed that when people would post their labs on forum their numbers would be abnormal also. i too believe it is hep c connected, but doesn't necessarily mean cirohsis. i don't have cirrohis and last lab my mcv was a point high.
how has the tx been lately? fatigue and such? hope you're feeling well.
