Loss of Blood

Loss of blood
This is a very common reason for anaemia in women with heavy periods and whose intake of iron is not adequate to keep up with their blood loss. Inflammation within thedigestive tract e.g. a duodenal ulcer or inflammation of the gullet may allow small but significant amounts of blood to leak every day eventually causing aprofound anaemia. This is also a side effect of taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, widely used as painkillers and for treating rheumatic conditions.In older people anaemia unexplained for other obvious reasons may bethe earliest sign that a cancer is bleeding into the urine or into the bowel.
