I know when I used home test kits for Lipids, maybe 15+ years ago, hey were not accurate. (Finger-prick, etc). Those (and these hemoglobin ones) might be better these days.

My hemoglobin was 18.9 this morning...I had blood work done by my doctor last week....I have been in the 18 range for years...he wrote me a script for a phlebotomy...500 ccs every 2 weeks...sounds like fun...

Normal hemoglobin counts are 14 to 17 gm/dL (grams per deciliter) your not real high if I'm not mistaking. I'm surprised the doc didn't suggest a special diet. Off juice it should go down also
Dehydration can do it also
So many things affect it in our life style

You need a script from a doctor for a phlebotomy...also they will charge you $ for the service...it was $50 a while back...

Going off your gear won't "make it go down", it's still in your body. You need to go off and donate, or phlebotomy. TRT doses will require the need for blood donations. You should donate blood anyway if you can, it grows back, and blood alone saves more lives in the emergency rooms than anything else.
