Red Cell Distribution Width indicates the variation in RBC size. It is typically reported as a coefficient of variation (CV), representing the standard deviation of RBC size divided by the mean corpuscular volume (MCV) of the cells. A higher RDW value suggests a greater variation in RBC size, a condition known as anisocytosis.

RDW is an important parameter to assess various health conditions, including anemias and blood disorders. If the RDW level is elevated, it can indicate different types of anemias, such as iron deficiency anemia, vitamin B12 deficiency anemia or folate deficiency anemia. Additionally, elevated RDW levels can be caused by certain chronic diseases or conditions that affect RBC production or lifespan.

Monitoring RDW values aids healthcare professionals in diagnosing and monitoring the progression of underlying health conditions. It helps guide further investigations and treatment decisions, allowing for a comprehensive understanding of a person's blood health and any related issues.
