Is a High Hemoglobin Count Good?

A high hemoglobin count could be due to your red blood cell production increasing to compensate for a low blood oxygen level due to poor heart or lung function, a bone marrow dysfunction, red blood cell production may be, simply, increasing to compensate for a limited oxygen supply in higher altitudes, your kidneys could be releasing too much erythropoietin that would enhance your red blood cell production, or if you are on medication to specifically stimulate your red blood cell production. If your doctor ordered this test, he already had something in mind that he’s searching for. Speak with your doctor concerning the findings for an accurate diagnosis.
