Question about Blood Test, some numbers low

I have a question about my blood test results. Some of the numbers on the CBC are a little low. My doctor said it didn't matter and I should get retested in two months, but I was just wondering what other people think. Here are the results:
RBC - 3.52 (low according to the lab report)
Hemoglobin - 11.2 g/dL
Hematocrit - 33.8% (also a little low)
MCV - 96 fL
MCH - 31.8 pg
MCHC - 33.1 g/dL
RBW - 13.2%
Platelets - 197
Everything else was normal. I have been feeling pretty tired recently.

I read your question and i understand your concern. Your labs ar eperfectly fine and slight variation is normal. There is no need to worry or panic about. I dont see any reason to disagree with your doctor. he is right.

I hope it helps. stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and can not be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
