Normal Value Of Hb In Women?
How about hemoglobin 8 for women?
Hi Rudhi.. Thank you for the questions given.
Hemoglobin (Hb) is a part of red blood cells that functions to deliver oxygen throughout the body. Oxygen is needed by all body cells so that a lack of Hb can interfere with body functions. The normal Hb level for women is 12-16 gm/dL. If the Hb level is less than the normal number, it is called anemia. Symptoms that accompany anemia are: easily tired, pale skin, lightheadedness, difficulty concentrating. palpitations, trouble sleeping.
There are various causes of anemia, including:
Anemia due to iron deficiency Anemia due to lack of vitamin B12 and folic acid Anemia due to bone marrow disorders Anemia due to chronic disease Hemolytic anemia -- red blood cells are destroyed more quickly Treatment of anemia can be done based on the cause of anemia and based on the severity of anemia. In mild and moderate anemia can be given iron tablets and from food. Meanwhile, severe anemia (Hb <7) requires blood transfusion.
What can be done in patients with anemia are:
Take blood-boosting tablets Consumption of foods that contain iron (eg green vegetables, meat, vitamin C, nuts) and foods that contain folic acid (broccoli, peas, brown rice), foods that contain vitamin B12 (eg: meat, eggs, dairy products) Routinely check Hb periodically Hopefully it will be useful
