Blood came back high cholesterol and high red blood cell count

My husband (30 year old) went in with malaise, fatigue, blurred vision, confusion, etc... BP was high (144/98). Doc took blood. Week later, blood came back high cholesterol and high red blood cell count. Doc took more blood for follow up. Tell husband she'll "call with the blood test results Monday (tomorrow), and he should come in and see her again in 6 months." Shouldn't she be more aggressive with high BP AND high red blood in a young man ?

if the doctor thinks its best to wait, then you should wait i guess

high BP could be due to anxiety. its better to repeat it after some time.
