Hello, I have hemoglobin-15.4, hct-82.2, mcv-28, mch-34, mchc-14. My gums are bleeding everyday. Do i need to take medicine to reduce hct.

Lab clarification: I am not sure if you type the right result of the blood work. With hb of 15.4 it does not make sense that you have hematocrit of 82.2? And MCV of 28? Please clarify the result of the blood work again. And what is the level of your platelet? ...Read more

Abnormal: These test results are abnormal. The WBC and neutrophil counts are high, and the hemoglobin and hematocrit are high-normal. What is the context of the test results. Is there an infection present? ...Read more

Anemic with 1.2% retic count, 0.62 red cell production index.  Whites/platelets normal. Bone marrow problem? I'm anemic, male, hemoglobin 11.5, hct 34.5, red cells 3.9.  Iron, ferritin, b12, folate all good, no GI bleed (upper endoscopy and fecal occult n

No, : No, this does not necessarily indicate that your bone marrow is not producing enough red blood cells. You have had a complete workup it sounds like. You are slightly anemic. You have a normal reticulocyte count. To put your mind at rest, you can discuss your findings with a hematologist, who may have recommendations, but your numbers are not concerning. ...Read more

How can I naturally increase my rbc, hct and hemoglobin?

How can I naturally increase my rbc, hct and hemoglobin?

See below: If you have normal levels, other than moving to a significant altitude there is not much more you can do. Taking additional iron, B12 or Folic Acid will not help, as red cell production is tightly regulated. If you have anemia, however, a proper diagnosis maybe need. The most common cause of anemia in the world is iron deficiency, but there are other causes. ...Read more

I check hemoglobin yesterday the result shows that hb value is 17.1(16) rbc6.09(5.5) hct is51.1(5.0), is this very serious issue ?

I check hemoglobin  yesterday the result shows that  hb value is 17.1(16) rbc6.09(5.5)   hct is51.1(5.0), is this very serious issue ?

A little too high: Your hgb/hct are both a little too elevated when compared to standard ranges. This could happen if you are extremely physical (train a lot), dehydrated, or possibly stimulated by other factors (eg testosterone-replacement therapy/supplementation). Regardless, this could result in a relative "hyper-coagulable" state, and a slightly increased risk for thrombosis/vascular compromise. See your pcp. ...Read more
