    that my red cell count was a little high or high can't remember, first question she asked if i was a smoker...andi replied yes...so she explained that we are lacking o2 and it makes more because of that....

    My red blood cell count is high because I live at 8,600 feet above sea level.

    A person's body when living at high elevation deals the same way a smokers body does. It creates more cells to deal with lack of O2.
