Hemoglobin Levels Chart

Hemoglobin is the main part of red blood cells, which carry oxygen around the body. If the hemoglobin level is too low, this process may be impaired, resulting in low levels of oxygen in the body. A healthy hemoglobin level depends on maintaining good nutrition and regular physical exercise. This is a chart that shows variation of the normal hemoglobin level with age and sex.
