Because of its frequency, its varied clinical expressions or its fortuitous biological discovery, anemia needs our attention.
What is anemia?
Anemia is defined by convention, as the drop below a certain threshold of blood hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is a red blood cell protein pigment that provides oxygen transport from the respiratory system to the peripheral tissues. The red blood cell is a cell without nuclei which includes a membrane, hemoglobin and several enzymes. The red blood cell is one of three families of cells that circulates in the blood: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets.
What counts for the organism is not so much the number of red blood cells as the amount of oxygen that they are able to transport and therefore the hemoglobin per unit volume. The difference between male and female hemoglobin is explained by the androgens that stimulate the production of red blood cells by the bone marrow in humans.
The rates under which we speak of anemia areÂ :
- 13 g / dL in adult male
- 12 g / dL in adult women
- 10,5 g/dL chez la femme enceinteÂ
Any anemia diagnosed clinically or on a simple blood test should be explored, so medical advice is required. Sometimes the cause can be harmless, but sometimes it is unfortunately related a chronic or serious condition. Anemia may also be due to a hereditary disease affecting the production or red blood cells.
Certain dietary habits can lead to deficiencies and require supplementation; our scientific advisors are at your disposal.
Iron is the main component of hemoglobin which is in our red blood cells, the oxygen carrier vital to our tissues. The iron present in the diet is not the same according to food nutrition, it is more or less bio-available and digestible. Iron taking causes a change in color of the stool that is quite normal.
