Insidious anemia: symptoms and consequences

Anemia is the «child deficit» and often the hemoglobin of erythrocytes (red blood cells) in relation to the natural levels needed to meet the needs of tissues for oxygen.


The body anemia is really suffers from a reduction in blood red blood cell count and hemoglobin responsible for transporting oxygen and carbon dioxide. This means that on the background of anemia in the body hypoxia — oxygen deprivation — with all the ensuing consequences.

Most often the anemia is not so much a disease in its pure form, a kind of indicator how much the (rather simple, but reliable), «signaling» that occurs in the body of some other disease.


Common symptoms for many varieties of anemia most often are:

— pallor of skin and mucous membranes;

— frequent inflammation in the corners of the mouth — the so-called «perleches»;

— headaches, dizziness and ringing in the ears;-flashing «flies» before eyes;

— pain in the calf muscles during exercise;

— shortness of breath and palpitations;

— increasing weakness;

— quick fatigue;

— drowsiness.

In addition, people suffering from «infirmity pale» (anaemia so was called in the 19th century), there is a significant dryness of the skin, and often exfoliate nails, decreased hair growth and split ends them ends.

The insidiousness of this ailment is that in the body’s attempt to adapt to the lack of oxygen in the fight against diseases will involve all systems and organs (mainly due to the reduction of their functional activity). And as a result there is a deficiency of essential nutrients, resulting in depletion of the «reserve Fund» contingency reserve accumulated in a body «pantries».

If this body fails to assist, he will inevitably become «bankrupt»: the Domino principle — in a painful reaction includes all the organs and systems, but, in the first place, we should expect failure in the weakest part.
