What Is A Normal Hemoglobin Level For A Woman
What really matters: What you really want to ask is: how well does my body while pregnant break down carbohydrates (sugar)? This is routinely tested during 24 to 28 weeks of pregnancy, when women drink a defined amount of glucose (e.g., 50 grams) and then have their glucose level taken an hour later. If at that time glucose levels exceed 140 mg/dl (140 mg%), more testing is needed; below that you are in good shape. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Range 30-150: Actual normal iron level is between 30-150, or 50-170, depending on the lab, for an average healthy woman. Men tend to have higher average because they don't incur the monthly menstrual loss (i know it is not fair :-)). This is typically not measured unless you are anemic. Usually hemoglobin is measured and normal is 12.1-15.1 for females, tad-bit higher for the guys. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It depends on when: It depends on the time of day and when her last meal was eaten. If she has been fasting all night and her morning blood sugar is >150 that is not "normal". If you are wondering about her having diabetes you can ask for a test called hgba1c. (hemoglobin a 1 c). A number above 8 would likely require some medication for diabetes. I hope this helps. ...Read more

What is considered a normal oxygen saturation for a person with COPD and why is it considered normal?
Anything above 90%: > or equal to 90% is normal. This is related to the hemoglobin oxygen dissociation curve. There is a certain percentage of oxygen saturation before your cells will not let oxygen leave cell and go to tissue. That is somewhere around 88-92% so since the sensors are good only 90% + or - 2% points, we use 90%. ...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

No: 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, your hemoglobin is lower than normal, even for a female. If you are in your reproductive years, it may be due to menstrual blood loss. You may take oral iron and multivitamins and see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more
Erectile dysfunction: I see your main concern is erectile dysfunction at age 30. I am going to assume this is actually hemoglobin a1c levels; your blood hemoglobin is measured in different units. Your level is in the reference range and this rules out diabetes as the cause of your erectile dysfunction. Two causes that are often missed by physicians are prolactinoma ; hemochromatosis. Continue the workup, good luck. ...Read more

Hi, I see a Hemoglobin level of 7.5 and Iron Level of 40 mg/dl as per clinical tests. what is the impact, can it be cured with tablets. Female : 25 y?
Yes: She is on her 2nd trimester on her pregnancy- she should discuss this with her OB and get some work up done to find out the cause of anemia. Part of it could be related to pregnancy, however if this is caused by severe iron deficiency or folate (folic acid) deficiency- not only it will affect the mother but also the baby growth and development will be affected as well. Go to see OB for further discussion. ...Read more

I am a 24 y/o female, 109lbs. I had a blood test done and my hemoglobin level was 116 (low) what does this mean? How can this be fixed? Will i be okay?
Anemic: This means that you are mildly anemic. The most common cause of anemia in young women is iron deficiency due to menstrual blood loss and/or recent pregnancy/delivery of a child. If iron deficiency is found to be the cause of anemia, iron supplementation should correct the problem. ...Read more
My Hemoglobin level was 11.3 and my hematocrit was 34.6 everything else was normal my question is does this mean I have lymphoma I'm so scared ?
Borderline: These values are borderline low but are not unusual in menstruating females who may be low in iron stores. Unless these levels have dropped significantly from several months ago, I would simply start taking daily iron to make up for monthly blood loss. However your physician is best to advise you about this and when to take another blood count. Not lymphoma. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
