There are number of causes of low hemoglobin and the most common cause is dietry deficiency of iron, B-12 and folic acid specially if you follow strict vegetarean diet. Other causes include loss of blood from any part of the body like excessive bleeding during menstruation, bleeding in intestinal tract. Another cause is decreased production of red blood cells and issues with the bone marrow or increased destruction of red blood cells as occurs in malaria or spleen related problems. I would advise you to followup with your doctor as a thorough examination and further evaluation is required to find the exact cause out of a long list.

Meanwhile try to increase protein intake like lean meat, liver and green leafy vegetables which are good source of iron. Multivitamins would be beneficial.

I HAVE HEARD THAT THE MEDICATION FOR hIV CAN AFFECT THE HEMOGLOBIN LEVEL. i S THIS TRUE
Doctor: Dr Uzair, Doctor replied 7 months ago

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, that is true as the drugs used to treat HIV cause suppression of the bone marrow which is the main place to synthesize red blood cells and hemoglobin.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
