My Blood tests came back out of the ordinary during a one year check up post WLS. My Dr. noted the high HGB and HCT. He reffered me to a hematologist/onocologist and he is concerned that my MCV is the issue and that I may have polycythemia vera. He ordered the JAK tests and other tests. I am not B12 or folic acid deficent. Take cymbalta and estrogen, and my AST ALt levels are low now vs a year ago when I was extremely overweight. Looking at past blood work the MCV values were high and were steadly rising.I may be paranoid, but other than what he thinks it is, could this be something more serious like leukimia?

Hello, this is Dr. David. I have read your question and am ready to help.
not leukemia, your white cells are normal.
dehydration can cause the HGB and HCT to go up.
