First of all, you may not be experiencing blood loss, however, if your hemoglobin is low, it means that there is some reason that your iron is low. It is usually from blood loss of some kind, menstrual periods or having a baby, or intestinal bleeding. Microscopic blood is not visible to the naked eye and stool samples can be analyzed for this at a lab. A colonoscopy can locate other areas of inflammation or concern that could contribute to your low hemoglobin.
When you have anemia, or a hemoglobin of less than 11, there is usually a blood loss involved or a failure of the body to replace old blood cells.
