In brief: Elevated Hgb

Elevated hemoglobin can be seen in pathologic conditions such as in clonal neoplasms such as polycythemia vera, thrombocytosis and cml; it can also be seen in non-pathological conditions where the bone marrow overproduces or over compensates such as in smokers or other low oxygen environments, over use of anabolic steroids, erythropoietin therapy, kidney dysfunction and more.

In brief: Polycythemia

The hematologic disorders are mainly myeloproliferative neoplasms.
The one that causes a high hemoglobin is polycythemia rubra vera. There are other causes for a high hemoglobin but the hematologic diseases pretty much limit it to polycythemia. Hope this helps.
