What is anaemia?

Anaemia is a condition characterized by a deficiency in the number or quality of red blood cells (RBCs) or the amount of hemoglobin they contain. Hemoglobin is a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. When the body doesn’t have enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin, it can’t get the amount of oxygen it needs, leading to various symptoms and complications.

What are the common symptoms of anaemia?

Include fatigue, weakness, pale or yellowish skin, irregular heartbeats, shortness of breath, dizziness, chest pain, cold hands and feet, and headache. The severity of symptoms can vary widely from person to person and depends on the anaemia’s cause and severity.

There are several types of anaemia, each with its own cause. The most common include:

  1. Iron-deficiency anaemia: The most common type, caused by a shortage of iron in the body, which is necessary for making hemoglobin.
  2. Vitamin-deficiency anaemia: Caused by a lack of sufficient B12 or folate, which are necessary for red blood cell production.

How to treat?

First- individuals should have a blood test to establish the level of iron and haemoglobin and to get a correct diagnosis before attempting any methods of management or treatment.

The treatment for anaemia varies depending on the cause. It may include dietary supplements (such as iron or vitamin B12), medications. Supplements can be oral or Intravenously.

If you believe you may be suffering from anaemia, please speak with a clinician.
