Has anyone had high hemoglobin or hematocrit? I just had complete blood work following a few tough months with surgery in September to release blockage and adhesions, followed by three months of malnutrition resulting in sudden hair loss.
Since December I have resumed my normal diet of fish, chicken for protein and lots of vegetables. I think I am well hydrated, my pee is a light colour, and I pee a lot! I used to eat lots of red meat, but have not touched it since September when I had my blockage.
My hemoglobin is 156 g/l. Normal range for an adult is 110 - 147 g/l
My hematocrit is 0.49. Normal range for adults is 0.33 - 0.44 l/l
May I have your thoughts if you know what this means, or if you have experienced high blood volume?
