Clinical Facts:

  •  A disorder characterized by a decline in the quantity of hemoglobin or circulating erythrocytes.
  • A condition in which, a reduction in the amount of hemoglobin /100ml of blood occurs. You may experience shortness of breath, soft systolic murmurs, pallor of mucous membrane and the skin, fatigue, palpitation of the heart, and lethargy.
  • Clinically, anemia characterizes a reduction in the oxygen-transporting capability of an assigned volume of the blood, consequential from an imbalance between blood production and blood loss (through hemolysis or hemorrhage).  
  • A drop in the number of red blood cells/cu mm, the volume of packed RBC (red blood cells) /100 ml of blood, and the quantity of hemoglobin in 100 ml of the blood. 
  • Your blood doesn’t carry an adequate amount of oxygen to the rest of the body if you have anemia.
  • Your body requires iron to create hemoglobin. The most common reason for anemia is not having an adequate amount of iron, because hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that provides the red color to blood. It brings oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
  • The most common causes of too little amount of iron may be

1.      Ulcers

2.    Pregnancy

3.    Heavy periods

4.    Inherited disorders

5.     Aplastic anemia (a condition that can be acquired or inherited)

6.    Blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia, cancer, or thalassemia

7.     A diet that doesn’t have enough folic acid, vitamin B12, or iron

  • Anemia can make you feel weak, dizzy, irritable, or cold and blood reports confirm it. Your treatment depends on the kind of anemia.  
  • Functions or subnormal levels of erythrocytes cause symptoms of tissue hypoxia.
