If the doctor was checking for anemia, the two labs mostly likely run would be Hmg and Hct. These stand for hemoglobin and hematocrit. The normal range for each of these varies slightly from facility to facility, however, on average, hemoglobin would be considered normal above 12. If it was 7 or lower a transfusion would ususually be warranted. The hematocrit is a little more difficult to interpret because it is read by taking a formula of the hemoglobin and hematocrit. Let me know if you need me to go into more depth...I would be glad to, but I do not want to overwhelm you. Good luck. I hope it was good news.
