I am a 64 year old male with psoriatic arthritis. Was on methotrexate but now on a biological therapy via Benepali injections.
Over recent months my HG has risen steadily from 150 to 183 and my pack cell volume is 0.53.
My Rheumy has referred me for kidney scans and to haematology (suspected polycythemia).
So folks haematology appointment not until 31 October.
Now my naive question!!
Are the current HG and PCV a cause of concern and given delay in haematology appointment should I be taking any self Meds to lower any risk?
Thanks for reading my post.
