How Much Himoglobin In 23 Year Old Lady
How low?: Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthy folks fall outside on either end. If your peripheral smear is unremarkable and the MCV above 70, I'd forget the whole thing. My RDW is always high from donating blood. There are some variants of thalassemia minor that will produce this and puzzle people over a lifetime, though MCH is usually lowish. ...Read more

Anemia: Anemia is a broad term for low hemoglobin caused by many different things. Common things are common as we say.

I am A 33 year old woman. Dr recently told me my hemoglobin was 16.9. I smoke is this the reason for it?
It can be..: Smokers do not get as much Oxygen in their blood as nonsmokers (hypoxia) because of the pollution that interferes with their lungs' functions.

Im a 22 year old female and i already had a blood transfusion because of my very low hemoglobin... What should I do to keep my hemoglobin level up?
RBC count low (3.85), hemoglobin 12, Hematocrit was 36.5%, MCV 94.8, MCH 31.2, MCHC 32.9. I am a 38 year old female. Should I be concerned about RBC?
No worries: Her hemoglobin and hematocrit are within normal limits, so you are not anemic. The normal values for MCV, MCH, and MCHC indicates that your red blood cells (RBC) are normal in size and contain a normal amount of hemoglobin. With all other results being normal, the RBC value is likely due to lab error (variation). Hemoglobin of 12 is in the low normal range probably due to menstrual blood loss. ...Read more

Varies a little: Your lab might use different "normal", but in general: 12.1 to 15.1 gm/dl = hemoglobin for adult females. If you have chronic diseases (kidney probs, diabetes, etc.), then you should discuss w/your dr, otherwise, iron-rich foods like dark greens (spinach) and red meat (in moderation) are two obvious answers. Multivitamin w/iron (or prenatal vit) can also help. If still low after 3-4 wks, see ur dr. ...Read more
