You’re looking like your iron deficient, MCV and MCH is indicating the size and mass of hemoglobin is small and may be do to iron deficiency. I have the same problem ~ hypochromic anemia. TRT can deplete iron, magnesium and other core vitamins.

You can inject smaller more frequent doses and may lower CBC across the board, large infrequent injections can drive CBC labs higher as time goes on.

Strange how the hemoglobin and hematocrit are in range and RBC is high. Maybe your body just produces more red blood cells.
