Also, Thalassemia is typically abnormal Hemoglobin and you're in no way anemic by those values. Increased immature RBCs can be from increased oxygen requirements...living/training at elevation. Or they can be a result of Steroid induced erythropoiesis (RBC production)
thanks for the clarification Mike!

could they also be caused by obstructive sleep apnea?

Yes. My Cpap got me off Blood Pressure Meds and dropped my Hgb a few points without donating or bleeding out :)

I've had my CPAP for almost a year and just can't get into it. Wake up with it off my face every time. Tried several different style masks.
