Anemia is characterized by decrease in number of red blood cells or less than the normal quantity of hemoglobin in the blood. The normal level of hemoglobin is generally different in males and females. Normally hemoglobin carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues; anemia leads to hypoxia (lack of oxygen) in organs because all human cells require oxygen to survive. Anemia is the most common disorder of the blood. Anemia can be classified in a variety of ways, based on the morphology of RBCs.

People who are suffering with chronic disorders are in high risk of anemia. Three main classes are there in anemia which includes excess blood loss, excessive blood cell destruction or deficient red blood cell production.
