First of all, what is anemia?
Technically it means a reduction in red blood cell count, a reduction in hemoglobin and a reduction in hematocrit. Any reduction in these values indicates that there is also a reduction of oxygen getting to your brain.
Anemia also suggests that you may have a deficiency of iron or vitamin B12 & folate. Iron is necessary for activating thyroid hormone and vitamin B12 & folate are essential to the function of your nervous system. So, is a little anemia ok? Is a little less oxygen to your brain ok? NO!! If you are tired, can’t lose weight and are having trouble focusing ask your doctor to check for anemia and iron deficiency. Even a “little” or “slight”anemia needs to be corrected. Fix that and see how your health improves!
