Anaemia is a condition in which the number of red blood cells or their oxygen-carrying capacity is insufficient to meet physiologic needs, which vary by age, sex, altitude, smoking, and pregnancy status. Iron deficiency is thought to be the most common cause of anaemia globally, although other conditions, such as folate, vitamin B12 and vitamin A deficiencies, chronic inflammation, parasitic infections, and inherited disorders can all cause anaemia. In its severe form, it is associated with fatigue, weakness, dizziness and drowsiness. Pregnant women and children are particularly vulnerable.
Main causes of anaemia-
• Anemia caused by blood loss • Anemia caused by decreased or faulty red blood cell • Anemia caused by destruction of red blood cells Symptoms of anaemia Depending on the severity, the symptoms of anaemia may include: • Pale skin • Fatigue • Weakness • Tiring easily • Breathlessness • Drop in blood pressure when standing from a sitting or lying position (orthostatic hypotension) – this may happen after acute blood loss, like a heavy period • Frequent headaches • Racing heart or palpitations • Becoming irritated easily • Concentration difficulties • Cracked or reddened tongue • Loss of appetite • Strange food cravings.
