Anemia: Symptoms, Causes, Treatment and Prevention

  1. Anemia symptoms include paleness of the skin (face, lips, under the nails) and mucous membranes (eyes, inside of the mouth), being often tired and dizziness (turning black before the eyes) when standing up quickly and shortness of breath with exertion. Anemia is the condition where the number of red blood cells in the blood is too low or the red blood cells contain too little hemoglobin (Hb). Hemoglobin is an iron-containing red dye in the red blood cells, which binds oxygen and carbon dioxide and therefore ensures the transport of these substances. If the Hb level in the blood is lower than normal (= anemia), the blood cannot transport enough oxygen. Anemia is not an isolated disease but rather a symptom or alarm signal that something is wrong. Anemia can be detected by blood tests. The value of the Hb in the blood is looked at. The treatment of anemia depends on the cause.

What is anemia?

  1. Hemoglobin Anemia or anemia is the condition where the number of red blood cells or erythrocytes in the blood is low or the red blood cells have too little hemoglobin

Symptoms of anemia

  1. Sometimes no complaints Because not enough oxygen is supplied to all tissues in the body, anemia can cause many symptoms. It can also worsen almost any other underlying medical condition. In mild anemia, there may be no symptoms. In chronic anemia, the body is able to adapt, so there may be no symptoms until the anemia gets worse. Anemia can therefore go unnoticed and be discovered by accident, for example through a blood test

Examination and diagnosis

  1. Blood test

Anemia Treatment

  1. The treatment depends on the cause. For example, blood loss due to heavy periods can be counteracted by using the contraceptive pill

Naturopathy for anemia

  1. For anemia, use herbs that build blood, such as dong quai root or nettle. In addition, use herbs that have a stimulating effect on the digestive system

Anemia significantly increases the risk of death after stroke

  1. People with anemia or anemia are three times as likely to die within one year of a stroke, also known as CVA (Cerebro Vascular Accident). That's what researchers say at the International Stroke Conference 2012
