I am suffering from hypertension since few years, and I am currently on medication Telmisartan. I am an alcoholic and smoker, and I smoke approximately 15 cigarettes a day for the last five years. My current CBC report suggests high RBC, hemoglobin, and PCV. Though it reduced slightly from last year, it is still high. From the past 15 days, I completely quit alcohol and cigarette. Will the RBC, hemoglobin, and PCV come back to normal? If so, how much time will it take approximately? Last year, my hemoglobin was 20.1 g/dL, but now it is 17.4 g/dL, PCV is 55, and RBC is 6.72. Please help and suggest some treatment. Will it ever be normal? I have attached my reports.
