Lowered RBC count exercise related?

It is commonly accepted that exercise increases RBC count---but could a slightly low RBC count be the result of a new exercise regime, due to the stress of the exercise, during the lag time it takes to make new RBCs?

Hello and welcome to EHF !

I went through your query and i understand your concern.Exercise and healthy routine increases rbc production and in a start every exercise may lead to slight haemodilution which seems like rbc count has went down but its not. No worries and continue with exercise.

Take care
