Actively track your blood counts and discuss how they compare with your target blood levels

Your blood counts, particularly haematocrit (HCT), white blood cells (WBCs), haemoglobin (Hgb), and platelets, offer important information about the status of your polycythaemia vera (PV). Talk to your healthcare provider about your results after each blood test and discuss how your individual blood results compare with your target blood levels.

The following questions may help you discuss your blood counts with your healthcare provider:

  • What are my target levels for HCT and WBCs?
  • What are my management options if my HCT or WBCs are above the target level?
  • What other factors might influence my blood test results?
  • Why is it important to monitor my blood cell counts to keep PV controlled?
  • Why is it important to know if my blood cell counts are above the target level?
