According to Elaine N & Katja H (2008 anatomy and physiology pp 642) Anemia “is a condition in which the blood’s oxygen carrying capacity is too low to support normal metabolism” which has multiple tips like Sickle cell anemia, Aplastic Anemia, Iron-Deficiency anemia and pernicious Anemia.

    Anemia is a disorder in which the body is lacking healthy red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen to body tissues. There are approximately four hundred different forms of anemic disorders. There are three key causal factors of anemia: a significant blood loss, a decrease in the body's ability to make new red blood cells, or a disorder that causes the increased destruction of red blood cells. Anyone can acquire anemia at any time. Poor diet, abnormal hormone levels, some chronic diseases and

    Anemia is a condition in which the body has a low number of red blood cells in the body. Anemia is also known as blood disease that occurs when the blood of the person does not have enough hemoglobin. Hemoglobin iron-rich protein that gives blood its red color. It also helps the human body to transport oxygen from the lungs to the body. There are different causes of anemia, but there are preventions and treatment as well. The causes of anemia depends highly on the type of anemia that the person

    Anemia is a disease that is commonly seen in veterinary medicine. This disease can be described as having low amounts of red blood cells and a reduced amount of hemoglobin in the circulating blood, which reduces the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. It develops from loss, destruction or lack of production of red blood cells. Anemia is usually a secondary disease caused by another disease or medical condition. There are three different types of anemia; regenerative, non-regenerative and relative

    Sickle Cell Anemia is an inherited blood disorder that is extremely challenging to live with. Its symptoms are many, with the most prominent being severe pain that can become unbearable to the point where hospitalization is required. Because sickle cell is a genetic disorder, a person is born with it and it is usually permanent. Unfortunately, there are risks and complications associated with this disease. However there are various treatment options for a patient with sickle cell and also support

    Anemia happens when blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is the main part of the red blood cells, and it’s what helps bind the the oxygen to the blood. If your blood cells or hemoglobin isn’t normal, then your body cells will not get enough oxygen like they should. They’re are also multiple types of Anemia, such as Sickle cell Anemia. Sickle cell is one that only affects african Americans. Iron deficiency is another name for Anemia. Anemia affects every single organ

    Aplastic Anemia Aplastic Anemia is a form of cancer that affects the bone marrow. Bone marrow is a soft tissue that is located on the inside of larger bones. This disease I rare and is not restricted for any gender. Aplastic Anemia occurs when the bone marrow stops producing enough red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets for the body. Platelets are another form of cell that do not contain a nucleues. They circulate in the blood and keep us from bleeding. When the marrow produces these

    Iron Deficiency Anemia I. Introduction Iron Deficiency Anemia affects millions of individuals across the world. This disease strikes many more women than men and has harmful effects on all who suffer from this deficiency that causes oxygen-carrying capacity to decrease. The causes can vary amongst different groups, but the aggravating symptoms remain constant. Much of the research on Iron Deficiency Anemia concentrates on not only the treatment of this disease, but also the prevention

    that sickle cell anemia affects about 72,000 Americans in the United States. Sickle cell anemia is an inherited disease in which the body is unable to produce normal hemoglobin, an iron-containing protein. Abnormal hemoglobin can morph cells that can become lodged in narrow blood vessels, blocking oxygen from reaching organs and tissues. The effects of sickle cell anemia are bouts of extreme pain, infectious, fever, jaundice, stroke, slow growth, organ, and failure. Sickle cell anemia hurts many people

  • Iron Deficiency Anemia

    Anemia is defined as a condition in which the blood is deficient in red blood cells, hemoglobin, or both or deficient in total volume. Iron deficiency anemia is the lack of iron to form normal red blood cells. Iron is imperative for almost all organisms because of its ability to donate and accept electrons with relative ease (Pantopoulos et al., 2012). Iron is required for cellular metabolic functions, oxygen carrying proteins, and cell growth and development. Those affected the most by iron deficiency

    Iron deficiency anemia is a secondary result of hemorrhagic anemia’s, as well as resulting from inadequate intakes of iron containing foods and impaired iron absorption (Marieb, Hoehn 642). About 20% of women, 50% of pregnant women, and 3% of men do not have a sufficient amount of iron in their body, making it the most common form of anemia (Medicine Plus).In addition, the blood lacks adequate healthy red blood cells, which provide the body energy and a healthy color to the skin.

    Anemia is a global concern that impacts all individuals and nearly half of the anemic cases are caused from iron deficiency. Iron deficiency anemia is most prevalent in children, pregnant, and nonpregnant women. Iron deficiency is caused from inadequate iron intake and absorption, increase iron requirements for growth, or from excessive iron loss (Pasricha, Drakesmith, Black, Hipgrave, & Biggs, 2013). Iron plays a crucial role in hemoglobin synthesis. With low iron, red blood cells have reduced

  • Sickle Cell Anemia

    What is sickle cell anemia? Sickle cell anemia is an inherited disease of red blood cells. Normally red blood cells contain a protein called hemoglobin A, which carries oxygen to all the organs in the body. With sickle cell anemia, however, the body makes a different kind of protein, called hemoglobin S. The problem is that when a red blood cell with hemoglobin S releases oxygen, the cell changes from the usual doughnut shape to a sickle or S shape, and becomes stiff rather than soft and flexible

    Sickle cell anemia is a hereditary disorder that mostly affects people of African ancestry, but also occurs in other ethnic groups, including people who are of Mediterranean and Middle Eastern descent. More than 70,000 Americans have sickle cell anemia. And about 2 million Americans - and one in 12 African Americans - have sickle cell trait (this means they carry one gene for the disease, but do not have the disease itself). Sickle cell anemia occurs when a person inherits two abnormal genes (one

However, more than base mortality rates have to be considered when assessing the true impact of anemia on public health. For those with prolonged undiagnosed cases of mild to moderate anemia the long term effects to their health are hard to calculate. New understanding of the mechanisms of cellular systems has led to advancements in identification and treatment of anemia. Each advancement is another step in understand

    suffering is the most common type of anemia, Iron Deficiency Anemia. Iron deficiency occurs when red blood cells (RBCs) is lower than normal in the body. The protein is answerable for carrying oxygen in the body’s tissues, which is important for body tissues and muscles to function successfully (Oxygen at altitude,2009). Short of sufficient iron the hemoglobin is not producing enough making someone become anemic, several causes can develop iron deficiency anemia, such as breast breastfeeding, menstruation

Thalassemia also known as Cooley’s anemia (Catlin 2003) was originally described by Thomas Cooley in 1925 (Starr 2012). The name Thalassemia came from the Greek name for sea (thalassa). This was due to the fact that for many years, those who had been most affected lived in the vicinity of
