Anemia is a blood disorder that is defined as: having fewer red blood cells than normal, or having less hemoglobin than normal (hemoglobin is the part of red blood cells that carries oxygen). When there are not enough red blood cells or there is too little hemoglobin, the blood is not able to carry enough oxygen to all parts of the body. Iron deficiency anemia is one of the most common forms of anemia.
Significant deviations from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.
