What Happens If You Have to Many Red Blood Cells?

Answer

If you have too many red blood cells (polycythaemia and erythrocytosis) the blood's 'thickness' (viscosity) increases, blood flow to organs reduces and clot formation increases. Generally, men have higher levels of red blood cells than women while newborn babies have more than adults.
