Hi there, Thanks for using HCM. No, typhoid does not cause a low hemoglobin. Your hemoglobin 4.0 is too low. You are anemic. A peripheral smear test should be done to see what type anemia. Further testing depends on what type of anemia you. The smear may indicate microcytic, macrocytic or dimorphic anemia. Microcytic anemia usually indicates iron deficiency and a macrocytic anemia may indicate Vitamin B12 deficiency. Since the hemoglobin is too low, you require blood transfusion. As far as your fever is concerned, it may take 2-4 weeks to completely recover.
