What does a low hemoglobin level mean? I was told that my 3 year old sons hemoglobin is low because he drinks to much milk. Is this true or is something else wrong. And if so what would it possible be?

Blood loss vs iron: Kids who consume more than 24-30 oz of milk/day can experience tiny amounts of blood loss thru the intestine due to irritation caused by the cow milk protein on the gut wall. Smaller amounts or boiled milk , don't seem to cause this problem. Blood loss, paired with the kids avoidance of other iron containing foods leads to low hemoglobin production & anemia.Other causes are also possible. ...Read more

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

Hemoglobin maybe elevated in instances of poor oxygen supply, excessive production of a substance that help the body produce hemoglobin called erythropoeitin or excessive proliferation of the cells in the marrow that produce hemoglobin.

Walk B4 U Run: What was your hb last year? 11.3 is only a little low. Anemia may be due to different causes, many of which are not secondary to cancer. Your doctor will be able to do some simple lab tests to determine if it is due to decreased production of red blood cells or increased loss. If (s)he identifies evidence of internal bleeding from the GI tract, you will need to see a GI doctor for endoscopy. ...Read more

3yr olds hemoglobin level is 10.9, is this concerning?  She doesnt eat well, never has, very picky.  Should I be concerned about leukemia?

Having said that, your daughter is anemic and you should consult your doctor about the type of anemia. She may need dietary supplements, like iron and vitamins. Leukemia is not likely, but you should get her to see a doctor. ...Read more
