I just got my blood work done and would like to know exactly what these results mean. Also, I do want to mention that I am a heavy drinker. The report says that RBC is low at 3.19, MCV is high at 116, MCH is high at 39.2, RDW is high at 16.5, platelets are low at 141, calcium is low at 8.5, AST is high at 75 and ALT is high at 35. Can you give me a better explanation of these results? My bones are very achy and lately I keep seeing blood dots under my skin. It looks like a blood clot. I also feel tired most of the time. When I was about 18 years old, my doctor said I was anemic. I started drinking heavily about 10 years ago.
