Anemia

Overview

Anemia is a reduction in the red blood level. Anemia is a relatively common blood disorder, and can be seen in all age ranges. Symptoms can include possible fatigue and/or shortness of breath with exertion. Initial evaluation of anemia commonly includes further lab testing, to see if the etiology of the anemia can be determined.

Treatment Options

Once the etiology of anemia is determined, a determination can be made on whether treatment is required. Some forms of anemia may not require treatment. Treatment options for anemia can sometimes include vitamin supplements, medications, injections, infusions, and/or red blood transfusions.
