What Is Normal Hemoglobin Level For Women
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

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.

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

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
