Hello Surya! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Hemoglobin which is higher than normal is often caused by the condition of the body requiring more oxygen carriers. This can happen if you smoke or live in the highlands. In addition, it is still possible for this increase to occur because you have a disruption in the lungs or heart, disruption of hemoglobin production in the spinal cord, or due to consumption of certain drugs. If after further examination by a doctor there are no abnormalities, your hemoglobin might increase because you are dehydrated. High hemoglobin can cause your blood pressure to increase even though you don't actually have hypertension. Anxiety or after physical activity can also increase your blood pressure. However, if your blood pressure after being re-examined remains high, there is a possibility you have hypertension. You should start to change your lifestyle to be healthier. You are still young and your life expectancy is still long, try to live a healthy life to be free from various diseases. Start routine physical activity for at least 30 minutes per day. Choose healthier foods, like fruits and vegetables. You should reduce salt consumption. It's better if you see a doctor to be examined directly. The doctor will do a blood test again with a more complete examination panel. Your blood pressure will also be checked. The doctor will then explain to you the results of the examination and what steps should be taken. Meanwhile, drink enough, at least 8 glasses a day. Avoid cigarette smoke and alcohol. Make sure you always get a good night's sleep.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
