What is it like to have iron-deficiency anemia?
Low hemoglobin is a symptom of anemia caused specially due to underlying medical conditions and a poor diet.
Anemia causes shortness of breathe because the oxygen carrying capacity of cells decreases and this results in rapid heartbeats and breathelessness.
Glycohemoglobin, also known as glycosylated hemoglobin or hemoglobin A1C, is a hemoglobin glucose combination formed nonenzymatically within the cell.
Anemia does have prominent symptoms such as fatigue and pale skin which indicates low hemoglobin count. However, it is recommended to get a CBC test done to diagnose anemia.
Shortness of breathe (dyspnea) occurs when you are trying too hard to breathe and there is a feeling that you need to breathe deeper and faster due to shortage of oxygen. It is usually experienced if you are living with COPD, asthma or lung disorders.
