Please consult a hematologist before attempting self-diagnosis. Although your hematocrit levels are higher than normal, this reading alone is not sufficient enough to jump to any conclusion. Also, do you have earlier CBC test results
which show high Hematocrit levels ? Please note that the standard treatment procedure for PV is Th. phlebotomy (removal of 350cc of blood) so as to bring the hemocrit level to, say, 45.
