Your longevity guide to MCV. Gain deeper insights into your health.

Mito Health provides comprehensive biomarker analysis covering 67 key biomarkers. Our detailed reports offer insights into various aspects of your health, helping you make informed decisions.

What is MCV?

Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) is a measurement of the average size of your red blood cells. 

MCV tells us whether your red blood cells are too big, too small, or just right, which can provide essential insights into your overall health. Think of it as the Goldilocks principle applied to your blood cells—finding the perfect size can indicate a healthy balance in your body's ability to transport oxygen efficiently.


How it’s related to your healthspan

Abnormal MCV levels can indicate different types of anaemia and other health conditions. For instance, a high MCV (macrocytosis) might suggest a deficiency in vitamin B12 or folic acid, liver disease, or hypothyroidism. 

On the other hand, a low MCV (microcytosis) often points to iron deficiency anaemia or thalassaemia. 

Maintaining an optimal MCV range is crucial because it ensures that your red blood cells are functioning correctly, supporting efficient oxygen transport to tissues and organs, which is vital for sustaining energy levels, cognitive function, and overall vitality.

How to optimise your MCV results

To address high MCV, ensure your diet includes adequate amounts of vitamin B12 and folic acid, found in foods such as eggs, dairy products, leafy greens, and fortified cereals. For low MCV, increasing your intake of iron-rich foods like lean meats, fish, beans, lentils, and spinach is essential. 

If these dietary adjustments do not suffice, consulting with a healthcare professional for personalised supplements or treatments is advisable to achieve and maintain optimal MCV levels.
