A 31-year-old female asked:

Is a hematocrit level of 30.9 low enough to cause symptoms?

Yes: Especially if the underlying cause is making you sick. Numbers don't affect us; illness does. If you're iron-deficient, you'll be tired before you become anemic.

A 39-year-old female asked:

What are poc hematocrit rb low level symptoms?

Depends. how low?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, most people do not have any symptoms with hemoglobin level of 10 gm/dL or hematocrit of 30. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
