Hello,

As per your history, no folic acid does not increase hemoglobin level.

Please let me know are you taking any other medication like iron tablets?

Otherwise sometimes slight hemoglobin increase may be due to dehydration. So nothing to worry.

So I would suggest you to continue medications as adviced.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Shyam B. Kale, General & Family Physician
