There are several types of anemia with various causes, the most common being iron-deficiency anemia, which results from insufficient iron. Iron is needed to produce hemoglobin, a substance in red blood cells that helps carry oxygen.

Typical Symptoms of Anemia

  • Dizziness

  • Low red blood cell count on blood test

  • Vomited blood

  • Black, shiny stool

  • Dizziness when standing or after prolonged standing

  • Feel lightheaded

  • Currently pregnant

Doctor's Diagnostic Questionson Anemia

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Are you currently dizzy?

  • Do you have anemia on your recent blood test?
