Overview of Anemia

At OMICS, the journals are peer-reviewed by eminent professors from varied disciplines. We make every effort to ensure that research done on ‘Anemia’ is genuine and well-informative. Also, OMICS Group has instituted a reward program that gives scientific credits to the noted scientists.
Occurrence of Anemia
Anaemia is a situation that occurs when the blood vessels in an individual contain inadequate healthy red blood tissues. These tissues are the main transporters of oxygen to the body parts in our body. The immediate sign of Anemia is fatigue which happens since the individual’s body parts receive inadequate levels of oxygen.
Mostly, people with chronic diseases are prone to Anemia. Some of the important factors that influence Anemia are:
·         Certain types of anaemia are genetic and babies may be affected from the time of birth.
·         Due to blood loss at menstruation, women are vulnerable to a form of anaemia called iron-deficiency anaemia and during pregnancy it increases the blood supply.
·         Poor diet and other medical conditions trigger Anemia in aged people.
Through bleeding there is a loss of Red blood cells which can happen gradually over some time, and can often go undetected. This type of chronic bleeding leads to:
·         Digestive conditions like ulcers, hemorrhoids and intestinal cancer.
·         Periods and giving birth in women, especially, if menstruation blood loss is extreme and if there are several pregnancies.
Anaemia caused by faulty red blood cell production:
When the body produces a few blood tissues then in such a condition the body may not function effectively. Due to the presence of  irregular red blood cells,  the Red blood cells may be faulty and the vitamins which are required for red blood cells to work effectively.
Iron deficiency anaemia:
Due to lack of mineral iron in the body, the Iron deficiency anaemia occurs. Bone marrow which is found in the middle of long bones in the body needs iron for making the hemoglobin and the red blood cells transport oxygen to the organs of the body. Hemoglobin cannot be produced without adequate level of iron for red blood cells which leads to iron deficiency anaemia.
