Very mild anemia: It will depend on the normal range of hb used at your laboratory where you have the test done. At my lab- the normal range used is between 12-15, so hb of 11 is only mildly anemic. It is nothing to worry much about however. In young woman like yourself- with your monthly period, you lose some iron in every cycle. This can cause mild anemia. Check your iron and take multi vitamin. D/w your md.

See below...: Wbc normal. Rbc low (4.10-5.10 x10 to the12th/l). Hb low (12.3-15.3 g/dl). Hct low (36-46%). Mcv normal (80-96 fl/cell). Mch normal (27-33 pg/cell). Mchc probably normal (33-36 g/dl). Rdw normal (11.6-14.6%). Platelets normal. Mpv normal. Results suggest a mild degree of normocytic normochromic anemia (usually associated with chronic disease). Please consult your doc before any treatment.
