Re: Question about Haemoglobin Level
Usually, a hemoglobin level greater than 180 g per L in white men and 160 g per L in blacks and women is suspicious of PV. There are other blood values that are also important. Do you know what your hematocrit level was? Greater than 52 percent (0.52) in white men and 47 percent (0.47) in blacks and women would also be something the doctors would be looking for.
Some symptoms of PV:
Itiching after you bathe.
Enlarged spleen which doc would normally be able to feel when he examines you.
Burning or hot skin with redness
Transient neurologic complaints like headache, tinnitus, dizziness, blurred vision, tingling or numbness)
PV is eminently treatable so I hope you get some definitive answers soon so as to get you feeling better ASAP.
