In order to increase hemoglobin, a sufficient intake of iron is must. Usually iron is found in abundance in red meat i.e. beef, lamb, pork, chicken, turkey, egg, fish and seafood. You can have sufficient intake of iron from breakfast cereals, breads and pasta. Other ingredients include lentils, peas and beans, dried fruits like raisins and apricot and dark green leafy vegetables.

Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. A blood test can tell how much hemoglobin you have in your blood.
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
Recently Scientists at the University of Bonn have discovered a new rare type of haemoglobin. Haemoglobin transports oxygen in the red blood corpuscles. When bound to oxygen it changes colour. The new haemoglobin type appears optically to be transporting little oxygen. Measurements of the blood oxygen level therefore present a similar picture to patients suffering from an inherited cardiac defect. After examining two patients, the scientists now understand that the new type of haemoglobin distorts the level of oxygen measured.
The scientists have named the type 'Haemoglobin Bonn'. Haemoglobin transports oxygen to the body's cells and in return picks up carbon dioxide there. In doing so it changes colour. With an optical meas
