Anemia

Definition of Anemia:

A condition resulting from an unusually low number of red blood cells or too little hemoglobin in the red blood cells.  The most common type is iron-deficiency anemia in which the red blood cells are reduced in size and number, and hemoglobin levels are low.  Clinical symptoms include shortness of breath, lethargy and heart palpitations.
