A health condition where a person has fewer red blood cells or low hemoglobin levels is defined as anemia. The lack of healthy red blood cells makes it difficult for oxygen to be circulated to the body's organs and tissues. Anemia can be caused due to multiple reasons, including
- Alcohol abuse
- Exposure to toxic chemicals
- Side effects of particular medicines that lower the production of red blood cells in the body
- Old age
- In females, due to excessive bleeding during menstruation
Anemia makes a person feel weak or tired all the time. If a person is experiencing symptoms such as breathlessness, headaches, and increased or irregular heartbeat, they need to be tested for anemia immediately. One can book an Anemia Test online or get it done at home.
Testing for anemia includes a complete blood count (CBC) test. A phlebotomist will collect your blood sample, which will then be tested at our accredited laboratory to check the hemoglobin level along with other parameters.
