Dear friend, welcome to Healthcaremagic!
I am Dr. Prasad Akole (Critical Care Expert- and am glad to address to your query here.

Your test results mentioned here indicate a high red blood cell count and concentration (hemoconcentration). Your breathlessness can be due to the polycythemia (high red cell concentration) with associated high uric acid levels.
Elevation of neutrophils and SGPT is insignificant.

Please discuss this with your doctor.
I would advise you a detailed physical and lab investigation to look at polycythemia and its complications.

I hope to have answered your query satisfactorily. I would be glad to answer any further queries. Take care and please keep me informed of your progress at
Good Luck!
