Incomplete info: Your hemoglobin is low, i.e., you are anemic. Anemia needs to be worked up to determine the cause, as it can range from excessive menstrual loss, nutritional deficiency, gastrointestinal bleeding including that due to cancer etc. See this site for more info and it would be prudent to follow your doctor's instructions. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/pmh0001586/.
