Question: High hemoglobin

 zebedee - Sun Aug 26, 2007 8:44 pm

Hi I am a 38 year old male kidney transplant recipiant with a high hemoglobin. What I was wondering is if a high hemoglobin can make your body temp hot. I don't mean as in fever, but I sweat a lot. I will suddenly sweat profusely. Simmilar to hot flashes. Other people around me are not sweating when I am.

Thank you,

User avatar Hi Zeb,

An elevated hemoglobin level would not typically cause excessive sweating. I would recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation of your sweating. The reason for the elevated hemoglobin may need to be investigated further as well.

Best wishes.
