Hello there.

Thanks for writing.

Yes, low hemoglobin does affect your ekg report.

I hope you are aware of the terms used in the interpretation of ekg.

Non specific changes like T wave abnormalities, flattened and depressed ST segment changes can occur.
Also increased heart rate can be seen.

I hope you are aware of the terms used in the interpretation of ekg. If not then kindly revert back with your doubts.

Take care.
