hi,welcome to health care magic family,
your hemoglobin

is definitely at law level,this level of haemoglobin shows that your diet is deficient of iron contents,so take more nourishing diet,which contain more iron,you take green vegetables,spinach,carrot,date,gourd, etc
at this age we should think some other causes of chronic blood loss from the body like bleeding piles,worm infestation,if these are there you may contact your doctor

ach,gajar,gud,khajur etc

Hello there..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Hb can be increased by taking iron sulfate tablets if it is due to iron deficiency anemia..You can also consume foods rich in iron such as lean red meats, including beef, pork, lamb, seafood, such as oysters, clams, tuna, salmon, and shrimp, etc. beans, including kidney, lima, navy, black, pinto, soy beans, and lentils, iron fortified whole grains, including cereals, breads, rice, and pasta , greens, including collard greens, kale, mustard greens, spinach, and turnip greens , tofu , vegetables, including broccoli, swiss chard, asparagus, parsley, watercress, brussel sprouts ,chicken and turkey,nuts,egg yolks ,dried fruits, such as raisins, prunes, dates and apricots
