Hallo Stephanie
Cholesterol of 5.6 is slightly high, and you should try and eat a low fat diet. A high red cell count can be caused by kidney, heart or lung disease or the bone marrow making abnormally high numbers of red blood cells. Your doctor will probably do more tests to determine the cause if needed.
