Hemoglobin is a protein (metalloprotein) inside the red blood
cells that contains iron and transports oxygen. The normal level of
hemoglobin is generally different in males and females. For males it is 13.8-17.2
gm/dl and for females it is 12.1-15.1 gm/dl . Anemia is a condition
where is decrease in number of red blood cells (RBC) or hemoglobin levels
than normal, thereby reducing the amount of oxygen carried to the lungs and
other organs of the body.
Cause of Anemia
Red blood cells are made in the bone
marrow with a normal life span of around 120 days. Any process that disrupts the normal life span of a red blood cell may
cause anemia. There are two basic basic pathways which can lead to anemia:
decrease in production of red blood cells or hemoglobin
an increase in loss or destruction of red blood cells.
