    Hi aj92,

     

    The lab test MCHC stands for mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration.  This is a calculation of the average concentration of hemoglobin within a red blood cell.  A normal level is between 32-37 g/dl.  Low levels are known as hypochromia and high levels hperchromia.

     

    All the best,

    Lisa Nelson RD
