Do any of you guys know what would happen to the blood Hb levels after chronic exposure to CO?
I have been having many symptoms such as fatigue, slight dizziness and unexplained headaches for the past couple of years and I suspect that CO is the culprit. I happen to live in the most air-polluted city in Sri Lanka.
I recently did a Hb test and it came back 14.5. I know it's only slightly low but my father also have a Hb level of 14.3. So I'm wondering is this in our genes or is that a consequence of air pollution.
I know there are Carboxyhemoglobin tests, but I'm not sure there are such facilities in my area.
I'm not a medical man and I'm new to to this forum. So I apologize if this topic is not relevant here.
