Hallo Micky
Where there is a family history of thrombosis, the cause is usually not the number of red blood cells per ml blood, but a problem with clotting factors. You can actually have blood tests to check if your clotting factors are normal.(Best doctor to see for this would be a hematologist/physician). I am not worried about your Hematocrit levels as it is for all practical purposes normal.
