Brief Answer:
Hello. This can be due to high hemoglobin

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear. All i can say that this can be due to high hemoglobin. Periodic blood donation will keep it low and hence less viscosity of blood.
Please share your blood reports so that i can give you more detailed reply.
Thanks and regards

Today I tried to donate blood but I wasn't allowed due to a high pulse rate. My blood pressure was normal. I have never been told I had a high pulse rate. I am a 58 yr old male in pretty good health
