Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The amount of hemoglobin you have in your blood can be found through a blood test. Normal results vary, but in general are:

Male: 13.8 to 17.2 gm/dL

Female: 12.1 to 15.1 gm/dL

Note: gm/dL = grams per deciliter

A low hemoglobin count suggests anemia or massive blood loss.

The hemoglobin level is expressed as the amount of hemoglobin in grams (gm) per deciliter (dL) of whole blood, a deciliter being 100 milliliters.

The normal ranges for hemoglobin depend on the age and, beginning in adolescence, the gender of the person. The normal ranges are:

Newborns: 17 to 22 gm/dL
One (1) week of age: 15 to 20 gm/dL
One (1) month of age: 11 to 15gm/dL
Children: 11 to 13 gm/dL
Adult males: 14 to 18 gm/dL
Adult women: 12 to 16 gm/dL ...more
