Are you pregnant? Your red blood cells or hgb is what carries oxygen to your body through your red blood cells. This is a low hgb with the normal being 12-14. We usually transfuse people below 6 who are feeling symptoms. Why is yours so low? Usually after a transfusion, people feel so much better and have more energy. If you are pregnant, it is not only you that needs this good oxygen but the baby too.
No I am not pregnant. This has been going on for some time now about 3 years. but this is the lowest it has ever been. I have had a transfusion in 2006 because it was 7.3 and I had to have another one in July of last year because it was 6. They dont know why it goes so low. I do have severly heavy periods. but even with the transfusions it doesnt go higher than 10.
