Many factors can cause a high red blood cell count, including dehydration, certain forms of heart disease, pulmonary fibrosis and smoking.

There are three main types of cells in the blood stream: the red cells, which carry oxygen; the white cells, which fight infections; and the platelets, which help prevent bleeding. The correct balance among cell types must be maintained. Natural chemicals called growth factors, which may be used in treatment, control production of blood cells.

high red blood cell counts is named as Polycythemia... it means tht ur bone marrow is producing more cells thn its requirements... having more cells makes blood viscous and thr are high chances of it clogging the samll blood vessels.. u can refer to this sites for more info http://www.nlm.nih.gov/me... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polycythemia ask me if u wanna know nething else..

A brand new member five years ago managed to get so many responses and yet never commented back. Prime example that many began and to date in 2011 members still feel that a discussion is based simply by posting. A discussion is a flow of back and forth opinion and flows and clearly it did not happen here. Amazing!

To date I have yet to be bored on myLot. It just amazes me that this type of discussion still exists. I do recall reporting this but apparently it was not against the guideline as it is 6 years and yet to date the discussion is sticking. I couldn't even get the OP to respond in 2011.

Red blood cells perform the most important blood duty. A single drop of blood contains millions of red blood cells which are constantly traveling through your body delivering oxygen and removing waste. If they weren't, your body would slowly die. Red blood cells are red only because they contain a protein chemical called hemoglobin which is bright red in color. Hemoglobin contains the element Iron, making it an excellent vehicle for transporting oxygen and carbon dioxide. As blood passes through the lungs, oxygen molecules attach to the hemoglobin. As the blood passes through the body's tissue, the hemoglobin releases the oxygen to the cells. The empty hemoglobin molecules then bond with the tissue's carbon dioxide or other waste gases, transporting it away. Over time, the red blood cells get worn out and eventually die. The average life cycle of a red blood cell is 120 days. Your bones are continually producing new blood cells, replenishing your supply. The blood itself, however, is re-circulated throughout your body, not being remade all of the time. Since the human body is continually making more blood, it is safe for healthy adults to donate blood. The blood is then stored for use in emergency situations. Initially after giving blood, the donor may feel some momentary lightheadedness due to the loss of oxygen-rich red blood cells and blood sugar. The body quickly stabilizes itself.

blood cells are the most common type of blood cell and the vertebrate body's principal means of delivering oxygen from the lungs or gills to body tissues via the blood. Red blood cells are also known as RBCs or erythrocytes (from Greek erythros for "red" and kytos for "hollow", with cyte nowadays translated as "cell"). A schistocyte is a red blood cell undergoing fragmentation, or a fragmented part of a red blood cell.

donate blood, and request to have it "discarded." not sure if you've had your blood work while on anything or not, but it's a safe bet that you'll never get accurate baseline readings while on the sauce. make sure to have your bloodwork done between cycles... after everything has left your system for more accurate results. your high H&H is a direct result of AS use most likely

blood cell - blood cell
A blood cell is any cell of any type normally found in blood. In mammals, these fall into three general categories:Red blood cell, whose main purpose is the transport of oxygen; White blood cell, which produces antibodies to fight infection; Platelet, which is actually a fragment of the large bone marrow cells known as megakaryocytes and are important in blood clotting.

Can this also be hemachromatosis--an inherited tendency that is for the most part just monitored? People with this disorder are encouraged to donate blood regularly. I have a friend whose family has some experience with this, but I do not know if it is extra red blood cells, or extra iron.
