Blood work showing positive ANA and a low C3 compliment level. Suffer from lupus. High hematocrit and neutrophil count. What does it mean?

I have had lupus for 22 years. Recent bloodwork showed a positive ANA and low c3 complement level---both typical for me. However, it also showed a high hematocrit and high neutrophil count. I should note that my menstrual cycle is very heavy, yet I still have the high hematocrit count. Any thoughts on the possible cause for these findings ?
