I presume 6.4 is the total cholesterol and that i wouldn't worry too much about.

The high red cell count is high?
This situation usually needs investigating as to the cause, but clearly your doctor isn't worried about further investigation.

I would ask your doctor if your high red cell count needs further tests.

Hi sqad, Thankyou. Yes doctor said he was going to write to the hospital and they may decide to make me an appointment to go there for more blood tests.
If I didnt hear from them then he wanted my bloods all done again in three months. Sorry he didn't say how raised they are but showed me a graft over the past five years. They started going up and up from there.?

lilac......that sounds a very satisfactory response for your GP.
I will be interested in the results.

sqad, Thankyou as always. I will keep you updated, in the meantime is there anything I should do.? In my diet I do not like milk and only have a tiny drop if skimmed milk in drinks. Do not eat cream or fry things. Only have a small amount of no fat yoghurt and dried apricots for breakfast. Also do not eat butter and only a small amount of bertolli on brown bread. Brenda x, that sounds a pretty healthy diet (healthier than mine).
