What is Anaemia?

Iron Deficiency Anemia is when the body can't make enough red blood cells, or any underlying condition hinders the body from forming iron or red blood cells. Anemia can be temporary or long-term; it can be mild or severe. Low levels of iron in the body are the culprit of Anemia. Our body is structured to get a certain amount of iron needed to produce red blood cells containing a protein called hemoglobin. Hemoglobin carries oxygen from the lungs throughout your body. Iron-deficiency anemia is just one type. There are other types of Anemia - pernicious Anemia, hemolytic Anemia, sickle cell anemia, diamond black fan anemia, aplastic Anemia, Fanconi anemia, and anemia Mediterranean Anemia, and vegan Anemia.

What is the cause of Iron Deficiency Anemia?

  • Some of the common culprits of iron deficiency include:
  • Inadequate iron intake in a diet that doesn't meet daily nutritional needs or that is heavily restricted.
  • Inflammatory bowel diseases like ulcerative colitis and crohn’s disease
  • Increase iron requirements by the body during pregnancy
  • Blood loss during menstrual or internal bleeding.

If not treated on time, it could lead to more severe complications, including hemorrhoids or piles.

Bleeding in the digestive tract or Gastrointestinal tract is a symptom of a problem rather than disease. It could be due to an underlying condition of hemorrhoids that can be cured and controlled if diagnosed on an early basis. The digestive tract consists of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, rectum, and anus. Bleeding could be caused due to multiple reasons and might come from these small areas or broader issues like inflammation of the colon. If you are experiencing bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract or other sorts of blood loss, you need to call your physician or specialist for Mouth and Anus bleeding treatment.
