Differences in blood values between men and women result
because of several factors :-

  1. Men have higher androgens levels and androgens stimulate RBC
    production.
  2. Women of reproductive age lose blood through menstruation, which
    lower blood cells.
  3. Women typically have more fat than men, and the higher the body
    fat content, the lower the hematocrit level.
