Can you tell me more about this--perhaps you're referring to too many red blood cells?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
my md sent me for a blood test. he called me and said that i had to much blood. he also said that is what is causing my high blood pressure
Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 5 years ago.
And that's all he said? Besides the high blood pressure, and other medical conditions?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
thats all he said, no other issues.

Well, I certainly don't have a lot of information to go on here, but I would suppose he meant that your red blood cell count is abnormally high and that might indicate polycythemia vera. It can be treated with regular blood donations and medication if necessary. Here's a link, and, after you read it, if you have any questions about it, please come back and ask.
