At what level of hemoglobin do adult males can have mild anemia?

What is hemoglobin f? Is anemia occur from it?

Fetal, newborn type: There are different types of hemoglobin, and they are determined by the type of dna in one's genes. What most people have are called normal hemoglobin types, and then there are genetic mutations that create other types of "abnormal" hemoglobin (that are not as good as the normal hemoglobin). Hemoglobin f is the normal hemoglobin of fetuses and newborn babies, and f does not cause anemia. ...Read more

What are normal levels for hemoglobin and RBC count in males. When does anemia happens?

What are normal levels for hemoglobin and RBC count in males. When does anemia happens?

Anemia: Most men run a hemoglobin of 14.0 to 16.5 or so. Below 13 is worrisome. I'd ignore RBC count especially in this global age as some guys have smaller red cells because of mild thalassemia traits. Now, anyone of any age or gender with anemia needs to have the cause found as it warns of something else -- anything from a limited diet to stomach or colon cancer, hookworm, or about 1000 others. ...Read more

Got checked for anemia. Hemoglobin 19.5. Gp said that's good. Is this level normal? Too low or too high?

A little bit high: If you feel okay, there's no need for a follow-up. You're too young to have polycythemia vera. If you're on Anabolic steroids at the gym, that's your business. Were you dehydrated? Especially if you've had this before, you might have a high-affinity hemoglobin, a cardiac structural defect, or even a bad case of sleep apnea. As with most? S, the real answer will come from your history & physical. ...Read more

Hemoglobin is 11.0 and was told to take hema-plex. Been having headaches here and there and tired as well. Do I need to see what kind of anemia I have?

Hematologist: You may consult a hematologist. However, the commonest cause of anemia in women is iron deficiency due to menstrual blood loss. You may wish to try taking iron and multivitamins for about six months. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Diabetes and hemoglobin. Is there any relationship between diabetes and anemia/hemoglobin?

How will you know if you have an anemia? What is right count of hemoglobin and WBC that have an anemia?

How will you know if you have an anemia? What is right count of hemoglobin and WBC that have an anemia?

Easy: Assuming you are not actively bleeding. Wbc has nothing to do with it but abnormalities here may be a tipoff as to the cause of the anemia. A man with hemoglobin 14 gm/dl or more isn't anemic; for a woman 12 gm/dl. Some labs allow a bit lower in the reference range and a few % of healthies do fall below; iron deficiency can make you sick before actual anemia appears. ...Read more

Is abnormal hemoglobin is a key characteristic of sickle cell anemia?

Yes: With ss disease a genetic mutation changes the gene sequencing needed for normal hemoglobin production. The alteration changes the way the hemoglobin handles the oxygen molecule as it carries it in the blood. The blood cell then becomes distorted in the small capillaries and the spleen. The cell breaks down rapidly and or remains trapped.Anemia is a chronic problem. ...Read more
