Fruits And Vegetables To Increase Hemoglobin
I am a pure vegetarian and wanted to know which fruits and vegetables i can eat to increase hemoglobin content in my body?
It depends...: This depends on whether you are deficient in iron, B12 or folate (folic acid); if so, then increasing your levels will increase hemoglobin; if not then it won't make a difference. There are no good vegetable sources of b12- you need to supplement with it. For good sources of iron see http://www.Vrg.Org/nutrition/iron.Php for folate (folic acid) sources see http://www.Whfoods.Com/genpage.Php?Tname=nutrient&dbid=63. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Normal hemoglobin: Normal haemoglobin levels vary from lab to lab, but for men, normal levels are from around 13.8 to 17.2. Iron-rich foods include most meats, chicken, and some surprises like oysters and sardines. Better yet, get iron from healthy plant sources instead: try lentils, beans, & spinach. Check for hidden bleeding from stomach ulcers. Ask a Dr to assess why you are anemic. Recheck levels in a month. ...Read more

I have a question about hemoglobin. I got a blood test 7 days ago and my level was 111. Can I raise it to 120 in 9 days?
No: If you're a wee bit anemic, you need to find the cause and address it. Do this as a service / duty to yourself, not to "treat a lab value". If it's simply your monthly loss as a woman, or ill-advised non-supplementing vegetarianism, treating it may be easy. But simply taking iron can mask a bleeding ulcer or worse. Your physician is your best guide. ...Read more
Depends: Is your hb low or do you want it to be higher than normal? If it is low, first step is to determine the cause and treat the cause.

Find the cause: Please forgive me. If you are anemic, you need to find the reason. It may be something as simple as heavy periods or ill-advised vegetarianism without supplementing. Or it may warn of an ulcer or cancer. As a lab specialist, the foremost principle is "Don't treat the lab value." If you are involved in "natural healing", get with an evidence-based holistic practitioner. ...Read more

My hemoglobin level is increased every time.So what is the best solution to reduce the increase in hemoglobin level?
Why?: The question is really -- "why is my HGB increasing?" if you live at high alititudes the oxygen level is decreased and the body produces for erythropoietin (epo) to increase HGB to allow more oxygen carrying capacity. This is physiologic (normal). Smoking and sleep apnea can cause low oxygen states. If a negative sleep study and no smoking then can check epo level and jak2 testing to rule out pv. ...Read more
Can i take injection to increase my hemoglobin. mine is 9 my doctor asked to take it?my age is 22
Most likely not: In a young woman, anemia is most often from menstrual bleeding which would be corrected with medication to regulate menstruation and iron replacement (a pill, not an injection). In some situations such as vitamin deficiency or kidney disfunction, injectable medications help. Hopefully, your doc is already on the road to correcting this which is important. Do follow-up with him/her for treatment ...Read more
I have a low ferritin and normal hemoglobin. Also i have gastritis and can't take iron. How can i raise ferritin level?
Aside of injection what is the food that can help to increase hemoglobin because sometimes i miss to inject after dialysis.
Anemia: Anemia in kidney failure is due to lack of erythropoeitin, which is injected with each HD session. It can be taken subcutaneously once a week. Ask about that possibility. Iron deficiency contributes to anemia. Foods rich in iron may help but typically dialysis patients require iron supplements. There is no natural stimulant or replacement of erythropoetin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
