Anemia is a decrease in your blood cell count, and/or decreased hemoglobin content in the blood. Since red blood cells are the ones responsible, for carrying oxygen to the cells via the hemoglobin, a lower amount means low oxygen in body’s tissues.
Anemia can be caused by blood loss, which means that enough red cells are not being produced, or that too many red cells are being killed off. As a result, the body has less energy available to perform their normal functions.
WHAT CAUSE OF ANEMIA
Formation of the hemoglobin very much depends on the amount of proper and nutritive diet intake. It cause by a loss or destruction of blood.
Many other causes, anemia can result from inherited disorders, nutritional problems (such as an iron or vitamin deficiency), infections, some kinds of cancer, or exposure to a drug or toxin.
Normal values of hemoglobin vary from 13 to 16 mg/dl in adult male and 11 to 15 mg/dl in normal adult female.
Young children and pregnant women are at higher risk of iron deficiency because of rapid growth and higher iron needs.
Bottle-feeding too long. Studies indicate that the longer children are bottle-fed, the greater the risk for iron-deficiency and anemia. Toddlers 12 months and older should not drink more than 2 cups of milk a day. Cow’s milk is good for children, but it does not contain enough iron.
Organic herbal supplements without any side effects are very useful in curing anemia. These contain herbs only which promote the increased production of blood in order to cure the various health problems.
