Haemoglobin Of 82 Is This Low

Normal: You can be low on iron but still have a normal hemoglobin. The iron level is not the best test of iron reserves. Ferritin is a better test. The gold standard is bone marrow biopsy.

Anemia workup: You have anemia, which has many causes. Either your body is not making enough red blood cells, or you are losing them (ie bleeding). You need an anemia workup. This starts with looking at your "blood smear" under the microscope, a check of your reticulocyte count (baby blood cells), and other tests. You may need a colonoscopy if your doctor thinks you are losing blood. See your pcp! ...Read more

This is serious: Anemia needs a workup. If you're simply self-treating with an iron tablet without an explanation of why you're actually anemic or having been checked for a source of blood loss, you're doing yourself a major disservice.
