Have any of you experienced your hematocrit come back higher after blood work?

I've been reading up on it, but done know if it's lupus related.

Hi Couchtater. Usually if Lupus causes a problem with concentration of red blood cells it's a low hematocrit which is anemia. A high hematocrit is nothing to be concerned about unless it is extremely high and remains that way for months. Love, Butterflake
