RDW-CV: Normal Range

RDW-CV: Normal Range

Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a way of measuring red blood cell volume and size. RDW-CV and RED-SD are involved in it.

For adults, the normal range for RDW-CV is 11.6-14.6%. RDW-CV is determined by two parameters: RDW-SD (standard deviation) and MCV (mean corpuscular volume).

If you have normal RDW, low MCV, anemia may be indicated.

If you have elevated RDW, low MCV, sickle cell anemia and iron deficiencies may be indicated.

If you have normal RDW, high MCV, aplastic anemia or chronic liver disease may be indicated.

If you have elevated RDW, high MCV, immune hemolytic anemia, myelodysplastic syndrome, vitamin B12 deficiency may be indicated.

If you have elevated RDW, normal MCV, myelodysplastic syndrome, vitamin B12 deficiency, chronic liver disease, dimorphic anemia may be indicated.
