if rdw is high
what does high RDW in hematology test refer to?
nothing if the RDW and MCV are normal
A low RDW-cv on a hematology test means that there is a very small variation in the size of your red blood cell. Low RDW means that the cells are mostly the same size, while high RDW means the sizes are different.
RDW (Red blood cell Distribution Width) - Describes how much your red blood cells differ in size from one another. The lower the number, the more uniform in size. A RDW under 15.0% is considered "normal". A RDW of 15.2% is not significantly high and shouldn't be cause for concern.
