I had a blood transfusion due to low hemoglobin. My iron level was 6 and is now 9 after two units. I still feel weak and really tired after 3 days?
Of course you do: You are still seriously anemic. Be proactive. Insist on an explanation of how you got this sick and what wil be done to restore you to health. If you have a bleeding stomach ulcer, what will be done? If you have hemolysis, what is the cause? G6PD status? Were you malnourished? You deserve a full explanation. ...Read more

If i will be undergoing myomectomy surgery -fundal fibroids ( 3) , in my 30's, what is normal hb (hemoglobin)?Do i need blood transfusion ?
About 12-16 g/dL.: Normal hemoglobin for an adult female is between 12-16 g/dl (7.4-9.9 mmol/l). You might need blood, like 2 units for your surgery to replace any blood lost. If you are anemic, which might be the case in these circumstances, you might need more. At any rate, your doctor, to prepare you for surgery might talk to you about autologous transfusion, or donating blood to yourself. Best of luck. ...Read more

My apologies but I don't quite understand your notice.

Why are my hemoglobin levels too low to donate blood? I am a 23 year female. Healthy diet. My hemoglobin level was at a 11.5. I have donated blood previously and been told my hemo levels were low. My last period was two weeks ago
Usually menstruation: In otherwise healthy females with good / "normal" diets, it is usually from excessive menstrual blood loss. This can often be improved upon by a multivitamin with iron (prenatal vitamin with iron works well), dark leafy greens, and occasional red meat. May want to discuss with your gyn to see if needs controlled. ...Read more

Sir my child hemoglobin is less than 10 , and his age is 20 days so, what you suggest about blood transfusion?
No: This is in the normal range for this age. Questions to ponder are: is the child's skin yellow? Is the child feeding well and otherwise appear healthy? Some will have a minor form of blood group mismatch with their moms blood resulting in decrease of the hemoglobin levels for some weeks after birth. ...Read more
Not necessarily: There is more to needing a blood transfusion than just the HGB level. The cause of low HGB is most mportant as well as the rate of decline. More information would be needed to address your particular problem. ...Read more
How can you treat persistent low hemoglobin counts following chemotherapy, other than blood transfusion?
Not many: Your heme-onc dr is an expert in this, and should have discussed (or tried) a gmcsf injection to stimulate your body's red blood cell production. But, many cancer pts do not respond to it--either due to the nature of the cancer or the treatment or both. If not amenable to induction of production, then will need transfusion every so many weeks. I see many pts who do this, and once used to it are ok. ...Read more

How long does my hemoglobin count go up after blood transfusion i was let out of hospital at 82 ?
Is 8 weeks of iron infusions enough? Ater this time hemoglobin decreased to 7.6. As a result, i had a blood transfusion.
Something's wrong: If iron infusions over eight weeks didn't fix your anemia, it's either not due to iron deficiency or you still have serious blood loss. I also see that somebody is giving you vitamin B12 for whatever reason. Please forgive my frankness. If there is not a misunderstanding, please get with a hematologist. ...Read more

Mom's hemoglobin is 7.5, and has no insurance. Hospital ER would not give blood transfusion because no insurance. Can not take iron d/t GI distress?
Try to get seen: The cause of her anemia needs to be found, even in the face of our dysfunctional health care system. A free clinic or medical school can look for the source of her blood loss -- if that's the cause -- and find out whether perhaps there is an ulcer or cancer that needs to be treated to save her life. It's a tough situation and i wish you both luck. ...Read more
I am on Actermra for Scleritis and have 10 for my hemoglobin level, is that too low to do next infusion and when too low and need transfusion?
Hemoglobin level: Most centers will not transfuse a stable non bleeding patient with a hemoglobin over 7. Speak with your doctor if you are having symptoms due to anemia. I know Acterma can cause decreased platelets and WBC but I did not know it caused anemia too. Speak with your doctor. ...Read more
No definite level: This is a complex question. We would need to know what is the patient's problem . If there is no immediate surgical issue, then transfusions are given if there are symptoms like chest pain. If there is blood loss during surgery, then indications are different. At our hospital, the medical staff has said there should be no transfusions unless the hemoglobin less than 8 gm/dl. ...Read more
How long could it take for my hemoglobin level to return to its pre-surgical range if I receive a transfusion? If I didn't?
6-12 weeks: There are a number of variables here. First, how low was your hemoglobin when you started? Second, if you received a transfusion, what was your hemoglobin after? It takes about 90 days to cycle through your blood supply, so after 3 months, you should be back to your baseline. ...Read more
Possibly : If your hemoglobin is too high, ie greater than 17 grams/dl, the blood bank may be concerned that the person may have a chronic myeloprolferative disease. This is rare however and can be easily ruled out. Other causes include copd, high altitudes, low oxygenation, testosterone therapy, etc. In those cases, giving blood is therapeutic. ...Read more
My haemoglobin level is 7.6.. How long will it take to get that back to normal without a blood transfusion?

Is checking hemoglobin level without a blood test or any machine possible? If yes, how? I would like to have an answer today or at least by tomorrow.
