Best answer
Correct Answer - Option 4 : ​12 gm/dl 

Concept:

  • Diseases can be caused due to various underlying reasons. 
  • Proper food and diet are necessary for fast recovery from any diseases.
  • A doctor advises different types of food during different diseases.

Explanation:

Anaemia:

  • Anaemia means having less ‘haemoglobin’ or iron in the blood.
  • Haemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that is present in the blood and is responsible for transporting oxygen from the lungs to the tissue.
  • Due to lack of iron, there is a decrease in the level of haemoglobin because of which, oxygen cannot be properly circulated throughout the body.
  • Anaemia disease is a result of deficiency of Iron.
  • Medicines are taken for strength.
  • People should eat jaggery, amla and green leafy vegetables because these have iron.
  • The desired limit for haemoglobin in a healthy individual should be 
    • For men: 13.5 to 17.5 gm/dl 
    • For women: 12.0 to 15.5 gm/dl 

Thus, Aarti is anaemic, which means she does not have enough haemoglobin in her blood. The minimum required haemoglobin level is ​12 gm/dl.
