If you feel weak and tired all the time, then you might want to get your blood checked because you could be anemic. This is a condition that is rather common among many people. The red blood cell count is low, which means that the proper amount of oxygen isn’t delivered to the body. Many people think that iron deficiency is the only cause of anemia. A lack of vitamin B12 can also cause you to be anemic as well as a lack of folate. When the red blood cells are breaking down faster than they can be replaced, then it can cause you to be anemic. Anemia isn’t considered a disease. It’s more like a deficiency. Young women are often more anemic than men, especially women who have heavy menstrual cycles. Deep wounds or accidents with severe bleeding can also cause you to become anemic. It’s important to drink fluids, to eat the proper foods that have high levels of iron and vitamin B12 and to take supplements with iron in them. Many people don’t realize that they are anemic if the symptoms are mild. Sometimes, the symptoms can develop slowly, making you think that you have a cold or that you’re just tired from daily activities instead of being anemic.
