Anemia

Anemia is defined as a lack of healthy red blood cells (RBCs) in the blood. There are several reasons why anemia occurs: the RBCs can be destroyed by the body (auto-immune disease), the body can stop making them or severe blood loss may occur (internal or external).

Red blood cells are made in the bone marrow and found in the bloodstream
