Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Normocytic means the cell apperance. The RBC looks normal. Normochromic means the RBCs look properly stained indicating normal amount of Hb in them. Have a high protein diet. And include lits of fruits and vegetables in your diet . Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
