... You'll need to call your dr's office and ask that question. Hgl levels are different for children and change with age/growth. Also depending upon where the test was done the lab levels may vary. If you are worried about your child by all means contact the dr's office!!! (1 replies)
... and stated "WELL! If you'd READ the information..." I felt like a 3rd grader caught not having done their homework. The vampiress went on to reprimand me for my low Hgl level and dismissed me from service! My friend, however, got siphoned and almost passed out! ... (22 replies)
... s your actual blood count that's important. Your iron stores won't go up much until after your body takes what it needs to build your blood supply back up. An Hgl score of 10 is low but it's not at panic level. My mom has the same problem and when her Hgl gets below 8 she is given a blood transfusion. ... (16 replies)
... I am very scared, to say the least! :( I just want some answers and I hope Im on the road to finding the problem... I was admitted to the hospital just a few hours after my pre-op blood work in December when they discovered it was 5.5; they gave me 4 units of blood right away..when I was released it was FINALLY at an 8 but since then it slowly dropped to 5.4 as of 2/18 - dr...

... IV iron allows us to then manufacture our own blood if it has been determined that iron deficiency is the problem. BUT if your Hgl is very low you don't have the luxury of time to make your own blood you need it now. ... (63 replies)
... If the Ferritin level was accurate it means you've used up your stores keeping the Hgl levels up and you may become anemic in the near future. My ferritin level is alwyas extremely low but I'm not always anemic. ... (2 replies)
... Nope, amwood, so far nothing upon which to blame my low iron. All the usual tests came back negative. I think I've always had this problem but up until a few years ago I refused to see a doctor about it. ... (22 replies)
