    Get Hematocrit checked again. If its high give more blood.

    55 is definitely high, when im 'on' I usually am around 48-49. I've used EPO to get myself around 54-55 in the past for sports, but yea i'd say you're safe to keep pinning... just get it checked again in the future and make sure it hasn't gotten any higher than that. Some cyclists will go all the way up to a 60 hemocrit, but around there is when you've got the lovely chance of your blood turning into sludge and dying

    You can do that if you can find a place to take it from you. I have a similar problem and keep my blood in check by donating every month. I have two blood banks in town so I see each one every two months. Sometimes it winds up the appts are right on top of each other and I never notice 2 pints missing in the same week. Just don't lift heavy the day you donate and you won't get a horrible bruise in your arm.

    If Hematocrit is high donating is fine.

    The normal Hemoglobin levels for a male is 14-17 gm/dl and Hematocrit 47 +or- 5. With that said your numbers are slightly above normal, but don’t forget gear will increase erthrocyte production in the bone marrow. More RBC = higher hemoglobin. There could be other contributing factor as well like if you smoke, and the altitude of where you live. Check them again when you’re off gear to make sure you don’t have polycythemia vara.

    if been on for awhile get bloodwork done. i got alot of blood work done but my CBC (complete blood count) was the only thing messed up a little. you should get blood works done before start of cycle ,during and after PCT as far as feeling anything ,i felt nothing except that i finally slept a full 8 hours without waking up every 45min to hour. when im on the gear i get maybe 4 hrs sleep a night, wake up every 45min though.

    The one symptom I get when my blood gets too thick is a strange headache in my forehead and top of my head that hits while I'm working out.

    Getting very tired. watching iron intake, up water intake, add cardio if not doing it already. are things that can help keep it lower.

    I don't know about you guys but when my blood gets that thick I feel like crap with lethargy and high bP. High red cells put added stress on the circulatory system especially the heart. When I get that high I take a little time off. Blood donation only goes so far for me. My platletes run on the low side and with repeated donation they get to low. Doc advised me not to donate so much. 6 weeks off and I am back to 47-48%
