Cause high hemoglobin can be a disease. Is heart disease (heart disease), vascular system, lung disease (pneumonia, bronchitis), intestinal obstruction and even burns. Hemoglobin is increased in various tumors, cancer, poisoning and toxicosis. Due to the rough terrain of the blood in the veins can cause stasis, which leads to numbness in the extremities or even gangrene.
Hemoglobin increases because of a lack of fluid in the body. It happens more often in the summer, when people drink a little, but sweating heavily because of sweltering heat. Smokers also often suffer from increased hemoglobin, because Smoking causes hypoxia in the lung. High hemoglobin may be observed in people living in the highlands. In the mountains is not enough oxygen, so the body itself produces it by increasing red blood cells in the blood.
It is known that hemoglobin is responsible for oxygen circulation in the human body. At high hemoglobin, the blood thickens. Because of this reduced supply of oxygen to tissues and organs. Symptoms of elevated hemoglobin can be a sign of any disease of the heart, lungs, kidneys or skin. The hemoglobin never rises dramatically, its level rises for some time. During this time, you can observe such symptoms as slight fever, weight loss for no reason, red itchy spots on the skin.

Eat lots of fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grain dishes (rice, buckwheat), legumes.
Avoid during treatment alcohol, even beer. Ethanol is able to stimulate the production of red blood cells, which increases the level of hemoglobin. Therefore, it is believed that people who actively consume alcohol, the level of haemoglobin is never below normal.
