Polycythemia: Elevated HGB and hct are called polycythemia. This can be caused by any condition that causes low oxygen levels in the blood such as heart or lung disease, or it may be caused by bone marrow problems. In any event, with your bluish fingers and toes pointing to low oxygen, you should see a doctor about this.
