Anemia

Anemia is a disorder that affects the red blood cells in your body, reducing the number of them or the amount of hemoglobin they carry. When there are less red blood cells than normal or if they are not functioning properly it can result in serious effects on your health. Anemia affects more than 3.5 million Americans making it is the most common blood disorder. Some causes of anemia include blood loss, reduced red blood cell production, and increased red blood cell destruction.

Anemia develops when you have insufficient red blood cells or hemoglobin, a protein that helps carry oxygen throughout your body. Too few healthy red blood cells or not enough hemoglobin and your cells do not get sufficient oxygen, leaving you constantly fatigued. Many symptoms of anemia vary according to the the cause, type, and severity of the disorder. Other reported symptoms of severe anemia include dizziness, numbness in extremities, headache, increased heart beat, shortness of breath, and chest pain. Since these symptoms are similar to many other disorders, these symptoms can be overlooked or misdiagnosed. Anemia is typically identified through blood testing, rather than by its symptoms.

The most common type of anemia is caused by an iron deficiency that can be treated effectively with supplements and changes in diet. Some types of anemia are hereditary, affecting infants at birth. Women may develop anemia from menstrual blood loss or as a result of pregnancy. Seniors have increased risk of anemia because of other health problems and even an unhealthy diet. People suffering from chronic disease may also have increased risk of anemia.
