What is anemia?

Anemia is a condition wherein your body does not make enough healthy blood cells. It can either be temporary or long term and range from mild to severe. Neglecting anemia for a long time can lead to serious health risks.

  • Lack of iron in diet
  • Family history
  • Body’s inability to absorb iron
  • Blood loss
  • Being pregnant
  • Some chronic health conditions

What are the symptoms of anemia?

  • Feeling tired all the time
  • Looking unusually pale
  • Shortness of breath 
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Brittle nails
  • Restless legs
  • Anxiety

Why is an anemia panel important?

A test can determine whether your blood levels are healthy or not. A complete blood count (CBC) panel includes the measurement of hemoglobin levels in our blood. Low levels of hemoglobin indicate that you are anemic. The CBC also measures the number of red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Abnormal numbers of any of these constituents indicate an infection or a blood disorder.

Why should you take this test?

If you feel symptoms of anemia, it is best that you get a test done. Neglecting anemia can lead to severe health consequences. Once your blood test reveals that you have anemia, the doctor will help you with the right treatment plan which will involve the restoration of your hemoglobin levels.
