Anemia is a medical condition in which total number of red blood cells or hemoglobin in body goes below normal i.e. the level of hemoglobin goes below 13.5 gram/100 ml in men and 12.0 gram/100 ml. in women. It is one of the common blood disorder, estimated to have affected at least 1.62 billion people globally.
Anemia is often a side-effect of another major disease which interferes with the body’s ability to produce hemoglobin or causes the loss of red blood cells. The anemic people will have less number of healthy red blood cells or there will be an increase in the number red blood cells that are unable to produce hemoglobin due to Iron deficiency.
