Specimen Type: Blood


Hemoglobin Blood Test

This test measures Hemoglobin in the blood.  Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells which enables them to bind with oxygen and carry it throughout the body.  Hemoglobin levels are affected by conditions which cause a rise or drop in red blood cell levels.  Low hemoglobin is often indicative of anemia which can be caused by excessive blood loss, nutritional deficiencies such as iron or B12, bone marrow disorders or kidney damage.  Higher than normal hemoglobin can be caused by dehydration, lung disease, heart disease or kidney tumors 

Hemoglobin is often measured as part of routine general health blood work.  It is also measured when a person is suspected of having anemia due to symptoms such as fatigue, lack of energy, paleness, shortness of breath or fainting.  It can also be ordered to monitor treatment for anemia.  Hemoglobin is typically tested along with Hematocrit or as part of a Complete Blood Count (CBC).

Turnaround time for the Hemoglobin test is typically 1 business day.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.


The Hemoglobin Test has no fasting requirements.
