I have a few questions on anemia and the hemoglobin level.
Is it possible there are different ways to categorize the healthy hemoglobin level or other measurements?
In the Netherlands females should have a hemoglobin level of 7.3 to 7.8 and if I look on international English sites it seems a moderate level should be higher and 6.5 is almost as worse as you can get. Am I confusing things or what?

And how severe do you consider anemia with hemoglobin level of 6.5?

And is depression a symptom of anemia? I swallow anti depressiva medicins since about 5 years and they usually help fine but the last half year I'm getting more and more depressed.

Apart from that I feel weak all the time, and like I'm living in a haze. When I walk the stairs or cycle I go panting like a dog. The last two weeks I even pant when I walk 30 meter on equal ground (no hills or stairs whatsoever). When I get up after lying or sitting I see 'stars' and my head feels heavy. Etc.
In my sleep my heartbeat goes 80, and when I cycle it goes 130. My blood pressure was 75/135 last time it was measured (which is about half an year ago)

Is it also normal that my symptoms are more severe when I have slept or rested for a while?
