Depends.: The normal hemoglobin is around 12-14 for women and 14-16 for men. Most people will not have symptoms if the hemoglobin is over 11. But many may have no symptoms at 9 or even 8, especially if the anemia came on slowly. There is a level below which people have symptoms and above which they don't, but it varies between people. Once the count comes up, symptoms should be gone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it normal I have had my period for 21 days! last month i had my period for a month and apparently this month is also lasting as long. I do have low anemia and I am concern that it might be that. I bleed in excess right now it is regular but days ago i
A : A regular period occurs once every 24-35 days (3.5 to 5 weeks) and should last 7 days or less. The two most common reasons for abnormal cycles are abnormal hormone levels or problems with the uterus. In order to check your hormone levels, you should have a hormonal evaluation to look at your thyroid function (tsh/t4), ovarian function (fsh) on day 2-4 of your cycle, pituitary function (specifically prolactin) and your testosterone levels (to see if you have polycystic ovarian syndrome). If any of these are abnormal they can usually be treated with medication. In order to evaluate the uterus, the best test will be a sonohystogram (pelvic ultrasound with saline water infusion into the uterus). This will allow the doctor to "see" inside the uterus to see if you have any polyps (abnormal growths of uterine lining) or fibroids (non-cancerous tumors) that can be causing the bleeding. The ultrasound will also allow the doctor to check for large ovarian cysts or many small ovarian cysts (polycystic ovaries) which can lead to heavy or prolonged bleeding. If you have anemia due to heavy bleeding you may consider taking a multivitamin or iron tablets. You may consider seeing a reproductive endocrinologist to help resolve your bleeding issues.

I eat about 7 pounds of ice a week. Is this unhealthy? I did have a problem with anemia but last blood test was normal. I've had the cravings 2 years
Maybe: People who eat ice, or starch or in some areas clay often have an iron deficiency problem. Though you said you had anemia which was now proved normal--you may still have a degree of iron deficiency, which can only be evaluated with specific blood tests--serum iron, per cent iron saturation and ferritin. If you have menstrual periods, you loose iron every month. Are you on vitamins with iron? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Depends: There are many different kinds of anemia, each of which have their own causes. You need to figure out what kind of anemia you have and what needs to be done to treat it. It could be that a simply nutritional supplement (iron, b12, thiamine) will be enough. It could be a more chronic problem that has no quick fix. If you're anemic for any reason, you need to see your doc right away. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
