I was just wondering if someone could give me some information. My sister is annorexic, but now seeking help and trying hard to put on some weight (though she is struggling with this)
She went for blood tests which showed extremley low iron. She had to go to hospital where they told her she had High hemoglobin and so had to get more blood tests done.
They sent her to a cancer unit for her blood tests, so she got a little confused and upset, and so cant really remember much of what they said. ( she didnt tell us at the time about the appointment, as she thought it was just routine, so she was on her own)
Theydid mention, that it could be something too do with the bone marrow making more red blood cells than it should - does anyone know anything about this - or what it could be?
Google, brought up a condition called Polycythemia Vera, but I dont want to jump to any conclusions. I would appreciate any info advice anyone could give.
