Anemia occurs when you do not have enough red blood cells which help carry oxygen to your body.
Symptoms of anemia
Fatigue, shortness of breath, dizziness, and fast heartbeat. It is possible to have anemia with mild symptoms or no symptoms.
Iron binds to oxygen and helps your red blood cells to carry oxygen to your body.
Your body recycles the iron in red blood cells. When your body loses blood due to bleeding or a during menstrual cycle your body can't recycle the iron. When your body has less iron, it can't carry as much oxygen.
Vitamin B12 Deficiency Anemia
Vitamin B12 deficiency anemia occurs commonly in vegetarians due to avoiding foods high in vitamin B12.
Vitamin B12 deficiency anemia can be treated with Vitamin B12 supplements.
Folic Acid Deficiency Anemia
Folic acid helps make healthy red blood cells. Poor nutrition, heavy alcohol drinking, bariatric surgery, and having a disease that prevents your intestines from absorbing folic acid are causes of folic acid deficiency.
All of the types of anemia have very similar symptoms so it is important to seek care from a licensed healthcare provider to make sure your anemia is properly treated.
