Anaemia, conceptual image. Computer artwork of red blood cells (erythrocytes) flowing through blood vessels (tubes). The red blood cells in the middle vessel have lost their colour, representing anaemia. Anaemia is a condition in which the blood has a reduced capacity to transport oxygen to the body's tissues. It is usually caused by a low concentration of haemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying molecule inside red blood cells. Haemoglobin cannot be made without iron, so an iron deficiency in the diet is the most common cause of anaemia.
