Hemoglobin is a protein found in red blood cells that transports oxygen throughout the body. The Mayo Clinic defines low hemoglobin as less than 13.5 grams per deciliter for men and 12 grams per deciliter for women. Anemia is a low red cell count or hemoglobin level.

Low Hemoglobin Symptoms

1. Low hemoglobin causes fatigue.

2. Shortness of breath when walking, climbing stairs, etc.

3. Vertigo

4. Enlarged hands/feet

5. Chest pain

6. Pale skin

7. fast heartbeat

1.Eat Iron-Rich Foods

One of the most common causes of iron deficiency is low hemoglobin. Your hemoglobin level will rise as you consume more iron. You can eat chicken, spinach, broccoli, cabbage, tofu, baked potatoes, kale, watermelon, apple, whole egg, dates, and almonds.

2. Get more vitamin C.

Your hemoglobin will benefit from increasing your vitamin C intake. Iron and vitamin C work together to keep hemoglobin levels up. These foods contain a lot of vitamin C.

3. More folic acid intake

It can cause a hemoglobin deficiency. Folic acid is found in green vegetables, poultry, bananas, peanuts, and dry beans. Beetroot is also high in folic acid, so those with low hemoglobin levels should eat it.

Moderate to vigorous activity can help raise hemoglobin levels. When you exercise, your body produces more hemoglobin to meet the increased oxygen demand.

4. Transfusion of blood

Transfusions are another option for boosting hemoglobin levels, but only in severe cases. An intravenous line is used to safely transfer blood or blood products into a blood vessel.

Conclusion

Eat a diet rich in iron, folic acid, vitamin C, and other nutrients to keep hemoglobin healthy. A blood transfusion may be required at times to maintain your red blood cell count. Choose the right treatment for your condition and underlying issue. But you should see a doctor to rule out allergies and assess the problem's severity.
