How To Reduce Hematocrit Levels In The Blood?
how to reduce high hematocrit and with dietary patterns how doctor, please explain, thank you in advance.
Thank you for the question.
Hematocrit is an indicator of the body that shows the percentage of red blood cells in the body. Red blood cells are dissolved in the blood serum fluid, wherein the hematocrit level shows the percentage of red blood cells per serum volume. The following are possible causes of increased hematocrit in the blood:
Dehydration. Lack of oxygen, for example in smokers and people who live in the highlands. Increased red blood cells or polycythemia vera. Lung disorders such as COPD. But basically this increase in hematocrit levels is directly proportional to blood hemoglobin. If the hemoglobin level is high, the hematocrit level will also be high. In addition, high levels of hematocrit are only a form of supporting examination results, which is to determine a patient's therapy, doctors must adjust to patient complaints and physical examination results. If there are no symptoms experienced by the patient and the level of hematocrit increase is not significant, it is relatively harmless and there is no special treatment / diet to be taken. You can simply continue or improve your lifestyle, such as adequate nutrition and nutritional intake of at least 2L per day, not smoking, and regular exercise.
I hope this information is helpful.
