Re: hemoglobin level 8.3

Hello, hello, Charlene! Nice to see you here! FLFG

ginamaciuca--Welcome to the boards!

It means that your Hgb is under range resulting in a diagnosis of anemia. Next you need to find out why you are anemic. If iron replacement therapy is all that you need to do after that then with your low numbers and moderate anemia you can opt to see a Hematologist and have IV iron as Charlene experienced or go the oral route with supplements. They really want you to do the supplements first and IV iron next because this is not without risk. It depends on your personal needs. You can look up food list on the net and eat the right combinations of food with supplements and Vit C 500 to increase the absorption rate. You can also add Vit-C to your main iron intake meals such as Heme iron. It can increase the absorption I think it is 6X. The anemia should resolve within 30-45 days. If you do not correct the problem causing anemia it will repeat itself. Take care. FLFG
