    What is considered dangerous high hematocrit?

    I can't find definitive answer on this.

    I'm going to the doctor tomorrow but I had a pint of blood removed today and but before it was taken my hematocrit was 58%. I have no clue how long it's been this high.

    I didn't take my shot like I was supposed to tonight. I've been cruising and blasting unchecked since september of last year. My bloodpressure is normal.

    I'd rather not say my age but I am younger than 23.

    What percentage is dangerous?

    55+ is dangerous. 58 is outrageous. You won't even be able to donate blood, it's too thick. But you can try and get a prescription for a draw. Do this yesterday.

    I had it drawn today. 1 pint taken. Do you think it went down at all? I'm going to the actual doctor tomorrow to get a prescription for another draw. I'm honestly scared.

    The worker at the collection facility was extremely concerned but she told me I wasn't in danger of dying but I needed to lower it. I don't know if she actually knew what she was talking about she just takes the blood.

    Is that true? I'm just trying to calm down. I read someone saying they had a heart attack at 58%. Then you use the word "outrageous"

    The number is an indication of how thick your blood is. 58%, you tell me... Your blood is like mud dragging around. the "worker" is an idiot. Why do you have to define dangerous as fatal?

    Stop cycling.
