Anaemia. Prevention and treatment

Anaemia is the manifestation of a disorder in which there is a reduction in the amount of red blood cells in the blood. It can occur due to a loss of these or due to a decrease in their production in the bone marrow for various reasons, with the most common being the lack of iron needed to produce haemoglobin, an iron-rich protein that gives the blood its red colour. This protein allows red blood cells to carry oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.
