Two measurements: The first measurement is hemoglobin (oxygen-carrying protein inside red blood cells). This is reported as grams per 100 ml (g/dl). Values <12 (14 for men) are considered anemic.

Note: different labs might have slightly differing normal ranges. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In contrast, rapid development may preclude compensation w/ grave consequences. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
