Does a result of 133 in hematocrit bad?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Matthew Fero

Not a valid result: Hematocrit is the percentage of whole blood volume that is comprised of red blood cells (RBC). Mathematically, it can range between 0 - 100%, but normally is between 35-45%. A value of 133 makes no sense. Hemoglobin is a measure of the major protein in RBC and varies from 12-15 g/dL.
