Anemia

Anemia
  • Overview of Anemia
    • Anemia is defined by the lack of adequate oxygen needed in your body. This is most often caused by not enough iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is necessary to circulate oxygen from the lungs to other parts of the body. Also, conditions such as heavy period, pregnancy, ulcers, and B12 vitamin deficiency can lead to anemia. Symptoms of anemia can cause you to become fatigued, cold, dizzy, and irritable. If you are concerned about having anemia, contact your physician or make an appointment at the Student Health Services here.
