What does it mean to be anemic?

Being anemic means that a person has a lower-than-normal number of red blood cells or a decreased amount of hemoglobin, which is the protein responsible for carrying oxygen throughout the body.

When someone is anemic, their body may not receive enough oxygen to function properly. This can lead to a range of symptoms, which may include:

Due to a reduced oxygen supply, individuals with anemia often feel tired and lacking in energy.

Anemia can cause a person’s skin, lips, and nails to appear pale or even yellowish.

The body tries to compensate for the lack of oxygen by increasing the respiratory rate, resulting in breathlessness.

Anemia can cause the heart to work harder to supply oxygen to the body, leading to a faster or irregular heartbeat.

Insufficient oxygen delivery to the brain can cause feelings of dizziness or faintness.

Some individuals with anemia may experience frequent headaches.

Reduced blood flow to the extremities can make hands and feet feel colder than usual.

Anemia may cause nails to become weak and brittle, and hair to become thin and prone to breakage.

It is important to note that anemia can have different underlying causes, such as iron deficiency, vitamin B12 deficiency, folic acid deficiency, chronic diseases, inherited disorders, or certain medications. If you suspect you have anemia, it is advisable to consult a healthcare professional for a proper diagnosis and appropriate treatment.
