What is hemoglobin?
Hemoglobin [Haemoglobin (British)] is an oxygenated iron-rich protein that is found in the red blood cells of the vertebrates and in some invertebrates.
97% of hemoglobin and 37% of total weight of red blood cells in the mammalian blood are 35%. It takes oxygen from the lung to the rest of the body and releases it for cellular use. It also contributes to other gas transport, such as transporting CO2 to the lungs in the lungs.
It can consume 1.36 to 1.37 milliliters of oxygen per gram, which increases blood oxygen transport capacity 70 times.
Normal hemoglobin levels
The normal levels of hemoglobin vary according to age and gender. Normally, the baby has a amount of 200 gm/liter. Later, it decreases from three months of age and becomes almost half. Later, hemoglobin began to grow again during the ages. The normal levels for men are 130-180 grams/liters and for women 115-165 grams/liter. In this case, male or female, if someone has 70 or 80 grams of hemoglobin, then it is identified as deadly anemia.
Normal levels are:
- Men: 13.8 to 18.0 g/dL (138 to 180 g/L, or 8.56 to 11.17 mmol/L)
- Women: 12.1 to 15.1 g/dL (121 to 151 g/L, or 7.51 to 9.37 mmol/L)
- Children: 11 to 16 g/dL (111 to 160 g/L, or 6.83 to 9.93 mmol/L)
- Pregnant women: 11 to 14 g/dL (110 to 140 g/L, or 6.83 to 8.69 mmol/L) (9.5 to 15 usual value during pregnancy)
Symptoms of hemoglobin levels decreased

The causes of hemoglobin levels decreasing
Organic hemoglobin organisms organize oxygen in the lungs and spread oxygen to the body or energy for energy. So iron deficiency is considered to be one of the main causes of anemia.
- Inadequate hemoglobin production
- The destruction of excessive red blood cells
- Worms especially iron deficiency and bleeding due to hookworms
- Additional menstrual discharge
- Frequent pregnancy and breastfeeding
- Lack of Folic Acid, Vitamin A, and Vitamin B-12
- Thalassemia Problems in the formation of hemoglobin in birth
- Gastric bypass surgery
- Liver problem
- Malaria fever
- Alcohol drinking
- Hemorrhoids with moles
