Anaemia is defined as a reduced number of red blood cells in your body or a low haemoglobin level.
Red blood cells contain haemoglobin, which is responsible for transporting oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body.
You should always report symptoms such as fatigue, breathlessness, dizziness and heart palpitations (feeling your heart beating rapidly).
You should go to the nearest hospital emergency department or call an ambulance if you develop shortness of breath and/or chest pain.
