What are the Causes for low Hemoglobin count

Hemoglobin is protein based component.It is located in red blood cells which gives blood red appearance.Normal hemoglobin vales are: (roughly not exactly)

Adult(males):13.5-17g/dl

Females:12-15g/dl

Pregnancy :11-12g/dl

Children :11-16g/dl

What are the problems(symptoms) with low hemoglobin ?

Hemoglobin transports oxygen from lungs to cells throughout the body.Low hemoglobin means low oxygen in blood.In order to compensate lowered oxygen in blood,the body try to enhance the output of the heart.This results to many adverse conditions.

The main symptom is fatigue(tiredness).Shortness of breath,head ache,Coldness in hands,feet,and chest pain,lack of concentration,sore tongue and some other problems.
