Anaemia directory

Anaemia is a condition that develops when your blood lacks enough healthy red blood cells. These cells are the main transporters of oxygen to organs. If red blood cells are also deficient in haemoglobin, then your body may not get enough oxygen. Symptoms of anaemia - like fatigue - occur because organs aren't getting enough oxygen. Anaemia affects around one in 20 men and women in the UK. Women and people with chronic diseases are at increased risk of being anaemic. Follow the links below to find BootsWebMD's comprehensive coverage about what causes anaemia, symptoms, how to treat it and much more.
