Hemoglobin

Hemoglobin (abbreviated Hgb or Hb) is the protein found in red blood cells that contains the iron and transports oxygen and carbon dioxide. It is common for people with Crohn's Disease and other forms of IBD to be low in hemoglobin. Common causes of low hemoglobin in people with IBD are loss of blood, nutritional deficiencies, and certain medications.

Hemoglobin Reference Range

Men: 13.8 to 18.0 g/dL (138 to 182 g/L, or 8.56 to 11.3 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 12 g/dL (110 to 120 g/L, or 6.83 to 7.45 mmol/L)
