Picture (Anemia - Symptoms and causes, 2019) Anemia is a condition in which the concentration of hemoglobin and/or the concentration of red blood cells are inferior than normal ranges. Subsequently reducing their oxygen-carrying capacity. Make it inadequate to meet the physiological needs of a person. About one-third of the population of the world has anemia. It is linked with substandard birth results, increased morbidity and mortality in women and children, reduced work productivity in adults, and impaired cognitive and behavioral development in children. (Chaparro & Suchdev, 2019) Picture (Visual Guide to Anemia, n.d.). To keep the red blood cell production within normal range erythropoietin and nutrients such as iron, vitamin B12, and folic acid are necessary. “Deficiencies in any of these will result in a decreased production leading to anemia. Bone marrow dysfunction in the form of suppression or inadequate precursors from disease or treatment will result in decreased RBC. production.”(Dlugasch & Story, 2019) Nutritional anemias happen when there are inadequate concentrations of hematopoietic nutrients. These nutrients are essential for RBC continuance and production. The causes of nutrient deficiency are: * insufficient dietary intake * increased nutrient losses like “blood loss from parasites, hemorrhage associated with childbirth, or heavy menstrual losses” * impaired absorption like “lack of intrinsic factor to aid vitamin B12 absorption, high intak ...
