In brief: Polycythemia

Your red cells are increased and your mean cell volume is averaging smaller than usual, and your mean cell hemoglobin is lower than normal.
Causes need to be investigated and include many, low oxygenation, renal issues, fast marrow output of blood erythopoietin levels and all have to correlated with your previously dx rare genetic dirorder. Do see your blood Smear or private doc ASAP,take care.
