I've reduced hematocrit by 5 points with grapefruit. One whole per day dropped mine from 54 to 49 in the course of about a month.
Hemoglobin...sorry, I've got nothin there.Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

As bad as I hate grapefruit it looks like I will have to give that a try because the only plan my doctor has is getting off the test.....

Your levels aren't that bad, mine were MUCH higher. 20.5 and 62. I decreased mine by lowering dose and injecting more frequently.
The problem w trying to donate blood is that most places do a quick H&H before allowing you to donate. If H&H is too high, they won't let you donate.
Happened to me...

From a health benefit point of view I think donating blood offers several advantages.
Also, try avoiding supplemental iron and if you for some reason are taking dessicated liver tabs (an old school BBing supplement so I doubt you are) I would avoid those completely.

Let me know how it goes. I'm currently having the same problem. My levels are just slightly elevated but the doctor wants them decreased. I'm going to try to donate blood and see if that helps.

Going to donate blood tomorrow and will get my levels checked Monday or Tuesday.

Donated blood today. They commented on two things
1. On how high my iron levels were...
2. On how thick my blood was because it took longer than normal...
I started drinking 8 oz of grapefruit juice daily two days ago so I might wait past next week to see if it helps

If your blood was not flowing well you may not be hydrating well enough.

Just as an update I gave blood one more time and got my bloodwork back today .......the hematocrit number dropped all the way down to 48.5 this time So for me at least it looks like giving blood regularly is the answer.
