Question: Elevated hemoglobin - hematocrit - WBC
|mfilas76 - Tue Mar 27, 2007 10:21 pm||
I am a 30 year old Female. Currently taking citalopram, and yaz. I had my last child in September, and have had elevated hemoglobin since (if not before). I had GD while I was pregnant. The doc wants me to go in to my regular physician to check out the levels. Here are the results of my lab work today:
Is this something that I should worry about? I have also been having a feeling of being lightheaded several times a day, and symptoms of feeling like I am being "shocked"? That is why I went in initially.....Other levels were normal.

There are numerous conditions that may cause alterations in labwork. However, did your primary physician recommend a referral to a Hematologist? If not I would suggest that you inquire about such a referral. Best wishes.
