- Why ODX?
The MCHC measures the concentration of hemoglobin in red blood cells.
High levels can be due to certain conditions or medications, while low levels are associated with insufficient hemoglobin and anemias.
A low MCHC may also indicate inflammation and could be a prognostic marker following a heart attack. One research study found that the lowest mortality was associated with an MCHC above 34.6 g/dL in coronary angiography patients.
