It is hemoglobin not the blood count which suggests anemia.I you are a anemic .you can start taking Iron preparation after de worming your self.Thousands of iron preparation is available in the market.there are plenty of reasons for hair loss ,even tension /stress ,poor nutrition can be the cause .So consult person dealing in hairs problems.Disclaimer

yes there is a range for HGB and HCT. If you fall below that range , you are anemic.
Anemia sometimes causes hairfall but not always. So dont worry.
Just improve your diet.Take diet rich in green leafy vegetables and fruits.
Consult a doctor for Iron and Multivitamin Supplements in the correct dose and frequency to be taken.
