Is Hemoglobin Of 118 Anemia
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
It is neither mild nor severe. You need to see a doctor to ascertain the cause and treat the cause.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, 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.

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
I've had severe anemia and an extremely low hemoglobin level for 5 years. How can I treat and possibly cure this condition?
Iron: But first, you need to find the cause. Are you bleeding, destroying your blood, or not making blood. The most common cause is that you are losing blood. You need to talk with your doctor. Hope this helps. ...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?
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.

What kind of anemia is this hemoglobin 11.4 hemocrit 33.9 RBC 4.08 MCV 83 MCH 27.9 mchc 33.7 RDW 14.2?
Mild: Hgb of 12-14 is normal in a woman. The lowish MCV would raise the possibility of iron deficiency. ...Read more
My mcv, mch, mchc and hemoglobin all a bit low. Rdw a bit high. According to my dr, mild anemia. Could that be all? Or something else too?
Yes, mild anemia: This is common, especially in menstruating females, more fruits and green vegetables would suffice, all the best ...Read more
Anemia tests: More frequently done are complete blood count (to check hemoglobin, hemotocrit, other parameters), iron, ferritin, tibc, transferrin saturation, B12 level, sickle cell test. Protein electrophoresis might be used to test for abnormal hemoglobins such as those in sickle cell or in thalassemia. ...Read more
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

I have grade 2 scariolitis (as) and I take no medication. I have low hemoglobin 118, low MCH 27.2 and high RDW which came on suddenly. My blood count was normal six weeks ago, except the low potassium level of 3.3. Could I have aoi anemia or inflammation?
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

Do you have a chronic illness? All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the limited data you provided suggests anemia of chronic illness. It would be prudent to consult the doctor who ordered the tests.
