My hemoglobin is at a 9 what is the treatment for this? My blood sugar levels are also low.

You're anemic: There are dozens of common causes of anemia and the cause in your case must be found and addressed. Insist on a full explanation from your physician and if you are not satisfied, get a consult.

My father had blood tests. Hemoglobin and red blood cell counts low but ferritin, iron, b12 normal. Doctor said he has anemia. Treatment?

Find the cause: There are over 100 different causes of anemia. Dad has a bleeding stomach or colon cancer until proved otherwise; yes, iron and ferritin can be normal early-on when this is happening. History and physical, reticulocyte count, stool guaiac, a look at the peripheral blood smear by someone who's good at it comes next. Glad you're there for Dad. ...Read more

My wife has underactive thyroid and also lack of hemoglobin. Treatment has been continuing for 25 days but she suffers from hair loss. What's reason

Multiple causes: If she's only 21 years old and has anemia, the source of her anemia needs to be discovered and corrected. Most commonly in females, it it is due to heavy menstrual bleeding.

Dr, my daughter aged 6 1/2 years. I checked her haemoglobin level. It gave 7.5. Is it below normal or too bad? Is any further treatment for my daughter?

That's quite low: A hemoglobin of 7.5 is quite low. One's pediatrician can do an evaluation to figure out why. A parent can write down the things that the child eats and drinks, and also write down and "vitamins", "supplements", creams, lotions, medications, etc... Also, parents can check to see if there could be "lead exposure" in the child's environment. The doctor will ask whether any relatives have anemia. ...Read more
