I am a 31 year old female. I have a history of celiac disease and a past medical history of Hodgkin's lymphoma, a stage 2 cervical lymph node and tumors in my chest. I had a blood test last week which showed B12 and folic acid deficiency, raised hemoglobin of 161 and raised hematocrit of 0.465. I have had a persistently elevated hemoglobin for three years but has never been as high as 161. It varied between the levels of 144 to 157. My doctor is concerned about my current reading of 161, as I have celiac disease. Can you offer me any advice? I am concerned about Hodgkin's disease occurrence or that I may have polycythemia vera. Thank you.
