that will depend on the cause of low hemoglobin.We should treat the cause.First of all we should have a peripheral blood film study to know if there is deficiency of Iron or folic acid/B12.If iron deficiency is there, a course of anti worm may be needed.If it does not work,you need further investigations for low B.P.
