HI, You should also note the hemoglobin level, based on these results, it may be low. This result implies that you are anemic (low red cell mass). There are different types of anemia but looking at your results it is possible that you have iron deficiency anemia. This means low levels of iron. This would have to be confirmed by other blood tests. It is treated with iron replacement supplements.

Hello, there's absolutely nothing like this. And no good may come from blood loss. There's only one occasion where removal of blood is done for medical reasons, which involves a hematologic malignancy. This malignancy causes uncontrolled production of red blood cells and the hematocrit may rise to very high levels. Kind Regards!
