Anaemia is a condition in which the body does not have enough healthy red blood cells. Red blood cells provide oxygen to body tissues. There are many types of anaemia.


Iron-deficiency anaemia is the most common type of anaemia that occurs if you do not have enough iron in your body. It is the most common form of anaemia. People with mild or moderate iron-deficiency anaemia may not have any signs or symptoms. More severe iron-deficiency anaemia may cause fatigue or tiredness, shortness of breath, or chest pain.4


Body needs iron to make healthy red blood cells. Iron-deficiency anaemia usually develops over time because your body’s intake of iron is too low. Low intake of iron can happen because of blood loss, consuming less than the recommended daily amount of iron, and medical conditions that make it hard for your body to absorb iron from the gastrointestinal tract.


Risks of developing iron-deficiency anaemia includes growing age, unhealthy environments, family history and genetics, lifestyle habits.


Timely intervention can help restore iron level in body and protect from the adverse effects of iron-deficiency anaemia.
