Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
Erythrocytosis is a relative or absolute increase in the number of circulating RBC
Hemochromatosis is an iron disorder in which the body simply loads too much iron
hemochromatosis can cause elevated red blood cell counts (erythrocytosis)
but not all erythrocytosis is caused by hemochromatosis.
so your iron levels have to be checked.
