How Can I Lower My Hemoglobin Level?

How can I lower my hemoglobin level, other than by donating blood?


Like you already mentioned, donating blood is one of the best methods to lower hemoglobin levels. Other steps you can take:

  • Make sure your multivitamin does not contain iron.

  • Avoid iron cookware.

  • Limit vitamin C to know more than 500 mg/day until ferritin level decreases.

  • Check iron content of your water.

  • Limit food sources high in iron, such as red meats and fortified cereals/grains.
