Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose abnormal mean corpuscular hemoglobin MCH, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "abnormal mean corpuscular hemoglobin MCH" as a symptom.  For example, manganese need.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
poor milk production
very slow fingernail growth
slow scalp hair growth
fatigue after slight exertion
macrocytic red cells
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of abnormal mean corpuscular hemoglobin MCH.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate having had recent lab tests, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Mean Cell or Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH). Unit: pg/cell
Possible responses:
→ Don't know
→ Under 26
→ 26 to 27
→ 28 to 32 (normal)
→ Over 32
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate very low MCH, low MCH, normal MCH or elevated MCH, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Manganese Requirement.  Increased mean cell volume and mean cell hemoglobin are seen in cases of manganese deficiency.
