Hemoglobin Blood Count
Can someone tell me how long will it take to raise my hemoglobin blood count (so as to get rid of anemia)?
Is 10.1 a very low hemoglobin blood count? I have Crohn's and constant diarrhea.. Is that a low blood count?
This is a low Hgb...: Normal hemoglobins are in the range of 13-16 g/dl, and are generally higher in men than women. From your brief history, there are many potential factors that could be contributing to anemia, including ( but not limited to) crohns dz, anemia of chronic disease, malabsorptions, blood loss, nutritional issues, etc. If you're a woman, menses contributes as well.

My husband has low blood count. Hemoglobin 14, RBC 5.59, low WBC 3700, platelets 157000. What's wrong with him?

The total WBC count is actually at the low end of what I think is a reasonable reference range, and unless the neuts are very low or he's clearly sick clinically, I'd simply be thankful for good health. I trust he has other faults and that the two of you will be forbearing & love one another. ...Read more

My hemoglobin count is 13.8 I'm a 28 yr old f. My blood count report says I'm hypochromic? Wat does that mean
Probably nothing: If the MCHC is only slightly out of range, I'd ignore it. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside. In the absence of anemia, abnormal indices seldom mean anything unless they are way-far off. At your age, a routine iron study may be in order. ...Read more
