Quiz: Could it be anemia?
MANILA, Philippines – Anemia is a commonly misunderstood term.
Contrary to what a lot of people think, it’s not just about looking pale.
Anemia is often caused by iron deficiency, which leads to lowered hemoglobin and red blood cell count.
The condition is unfortunately common as the symptoms are mild enough to ignore or attribute to something else.
It’s not a disease to be taken lightly, nor is it something that will simply go away over time.
Some people don’t consider anemia to be a dangerous disease. But if ignored, it leads to physical and cognitive decline, weakened immunity, and decreased productivity.
Could you possibly be suffering from iron deficiency anemia? How is it affecting your everyday activities? Take the quiz below to find out. – Rappler.com
