Some of the common types of anaemia is: • Thalassemia • Iron-deficiency Some of the very harmful and rare forms of anaemia are: • Sickle cell anaemia • Aplastic anaemia Overall all the different forms of anaemia are caused due to lack of healthy red blood cells or haemoglobin in the blood. Both of these are important for the transportation of oxygen through the blood around the body. The period during pregnancy is one of the very important time frames for the causes of anaemia as the mother can lack iron in her blood cause an impact on the unborn baby so many babies are born with this deficiency and therefore causes the disorder to been hereditary. The causes are if the rate of iron loss or use is more than the rate of absorption. This is a a matter that occurs very often and is very common in pregnant women this obviously indicates that intake of iron before pregnancy is poor .
Thalassemia is a blood disorder transferred through families. It occurs when the body makes less hemoglobin than needed or an unusual form of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the protein in red blood cells that carry oxygen. The disorder makes an excessive amount of destruction of red blood cells. This eventually leads to anemia.
Organ damage can lead to infections and other complications. Infections that are hard to fight for a person with sickle cell disease. A stroke could happen due to the lack of oxygen to the brain. Strokes are a high risk for anyone with sickle cell disease. During a stroke brain cells may die causing more
