Anaemia is the name for a range of disorders affecting red blood cells. Red blood cells contain a substance called haemoglobin, a combination of a protein and iron, which is responsible for carrying oxygen in the blood.It is thanks to haemoglobin that oxygen can reach every living tissue in the body, keeping us alive.To produce red blood cells, the body needs iron, vitamin B12 and folic acid. If one or more of these is lacking, the number of red blood cells fall, anaemia develops and the ability of the blood to carry oxygen is reduced.
