Dear customer, Thanks for your reply. Basically having a hemoglobin level of 16 is normal. In an adult female the reference range in most labs is 12.0–15.8 g/dL. Therefore if you have no symptoms then the slightly increased hemoglobin is not to be concerned about. This is considered normal and no doctor will worry about this. Hence all your results including the hemoglobin are normal. Take care. Please rate the answer with a positive rating. Thanks.
