Scientists from Sechenov University of the Ministry of Health of Russia have developed a method for assessing the level of complete blood hemoglobin using palm candling. Now this allows you to instantly measure hemoglobin content without drawing blood, as described in the First Moscow State Medical University named after. Sechenov.

Checking the level of hemoglobin in the blood is usually necessary to detect anemia and other diseases. It is important for the general condition of the body. The traditional method requires blood sampling and is not suitable for ongoing monitoring, but a new method based on measuring changes in light through large vessels in the palm may offer a cheap and safe alternative.

This method has been successfully tested on volunteers and could become an effective tool for medical research and disease diagnosis, providing a more convenient and safe way to measure hemoglobin.
