Anemia is a complicated disease that many people around the world suffer from. The technicalities of the disease encompass many things; however, it can be simplified. Anemia is a condition in which an affected person has fewer red blood cells or elements such as iron in their blood. Those needed cells help move life-giving oxygen through all parts of the body, and in an anemic person, the condition actually prevents the body from receiving the oxygen it requires.
Anemia is often associated with a lack of iron, whether biologically, due to insufficient nutrition, or life circumstances such as a heavy menstrual cycle, giving birth, or a recent intrusive medical surgery. The lack of oxygen going to important parts of the body can cause symptoms such as paleness of the skin, slight or extreme fatigue, heart palpitations, or shortness and difficulty of breath.
Anemia is the most common blood disorder, and is experienced by many women and people suffering from other medical issues. For instance, cancer patients may become anemic due to the assorted medications and therapy that is prescribed to control tumors.
Those with anemia find it easy to apply the general fatigue and lack of energy that comes with the disease to life itself. However, with knowledge comes power. Knowing, even in a general way, what contributes to anemia can help you overcome it.
