My MCH and MCV are both high. MCV is 101.9 and MCH 34.2. All of my other numbers in the CBC are in normal range. I was diagnosed in Nov. 2016. I have been on Gleevec 400ml. Daily from the beginning. I became undetected at about the 7 month mark. I know that under normal circumstances these readings can be indicative of anemia. Should I be concerned. Wondering if Trey could weigh in on this. Thank you in advance.

The MCH and MCV take the longest to normalize.  Mine took several years.  They are somewhat "qualitative" results showing that the blood is not perfect, showing some level of anemia.  But otherwise they do not mean much.  I would ignore them.
