Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

Lab values can vary. Please look at the report to see the normal range.

According to the Mayo Clinic,
The normal range for hemoglobin is:

For men, 13.5 to 17.5 grams per deciliter
For women, 12.0 to 15.5 grams per deciliter

If your hemoglobin level is higher than normal, it may be the result of:

Polycythemia vera — a blood disorder in which your bone marrow makes too many red blood cells
Lung disease
Living at a high altitude
Heavy smoking
Excessive vomiting
Extreme physical exercise

Do check with your personal physician,
