Anemia is a disorder that is characterized by abnormally low levels of hemoglobin in the blood. It is directly or indirectly responsible for many diseases. Hemoglobin is the protein molecule in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the body's tissues and returns carbon dioxide from the tissues back to the lungs
This disease often goes undetected.The body also has the ability to compensate many of its functions for early anemia. If the anemia is mild or developed over a long period of time, you may not have any symptoms as the body is able to overcome any deficiency.
Who does it affect
Anemia is the most common blood condition in the U.S. It affects about 3.5 million Americans. Women and people with chronic diseases are at increased risk of anemia
Certain forms of anemia are hereditary and infants may be affected from the time of birth
Older adults also may have a greater risk of developing anemia because of poor diet and other medical conditions
