User avatar Hello,

Your results only show only a slightly elevated WBC and an elevated CRP. These can rise due to any infectious or inflammatory process. On the other hand there is a slight increase in MCH and MCV. I am unable to say for sure but they could be a result of oxygen deprivation due to your COPD.

Please discuss these results with your doctor.

Best regards.
