This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Your hemoglobin level is considered moderately low.
Normal should be at least 12.5 or above.
Low hemoglobin is also called anemia.
This can be due to the iron deficiency, vitamin B12 deficiency, folate deficiency, gastrointestinal bleeding, hemoltsis from autoimmune disorder etc.
Hence, further testing is required with serum iron studies, ferritin level, vitamin b12 and folate level, reticulocyte count, LDH level, and also a colonoscopy if not performed recently.
Treatment depends on the underlying cause.
Most common cause is iron deficiency treated with iron supplementation.
It was my pleasure to help you today.
