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.
