Recently, I saw a 70-year-old white male patient. He went to see his primary care physician for routine follow-up.
He had blood work that included a completed blood count (CBC). It showed he had too many red blood cells (RBCs) in his blood.
This condition is called polycythemia.
RBCs transport oxygen from the lungs to all over the body. So one may think that the more RBCs, the merrier. This will provide more oxygen to the body and that can only be good for the person.
