Re: what is dangerously low iron levels

Low iron levels will cause your hgb RBC's to drop and when that value falls well below normal range it can be life threatening. You end up with iron deficiency anemia under 12. Serious/severe is a 6.5 Hgb -7.9 and life threatening is 6.5 and below. Anything under 7 Hgb and a blood transfusion is recommended and probably IV iron replacement therapy if there is no ferritin.
