I know that my MCV and MCH will be low due to the thalassemia but wondering why it has decreased. Could this be iron def? Any advice on the other results would also be grateful. Thanks

I am hypo thyroid and endos usually like to keep TSH around 1. Yours are in normal range but if you are having hypo symtoms they might want to increase your dose. Mine is at or below 1.
