In brief: Each

Each laboratory may have slightly different norms.
Usually a normal hct (hematocrit) level for a women is between about 36 to 48%. A normal HGB (hemoglobin) level for a woman is around 12 to 16 g/dl. I do not know what an isat is. It sounds like you are anemic. Your doctor knows you best, so i will not try to provide any medical advice. I hope that this is helpful.
