What is Anaemia?

Anaemia is a condition that occurs when you have fewer red blood cells than normal, or that you have less haemoglobin than normal in each red blood cell.

In either case, a reduced amount of oxygen is carried around in the bloodstream. There are a number of different causes of anaemia (such as lack of iron or certain vitamins).

Vitamin B12 is essential for life. It is needed to make new cells in the body such as the many new red blood cells which are made every day. Vitamin B12 is found in meat, fish, eggs, and milk – but not in fruit or vegetables. A normal balanced diet contains enough vitamin B12. A lack of vitamin B12 leads to anaemia and sometimes to other problems.

Why Should I Test For Anaemia?

Pernicious Anaemia causes the heart to work harder to get enough oxygen to the body’s organs and tissues. This stress on the heart can cause heart murmurs, fast or irregular heartbeats, an enlarged heart, or even heart failure. If left undiagnosed and untreated, PA can also damage the nervous system and has also been associated with cancer of the stomach.
