Let’s Talk Anemia And The Link Between Anemia and Inflammation

This month we are discussing a common (and commonly misunderstood) condition: anemia. Anemia often develops in pregnant women as well as people with chronic diseases, such as aging adults and even young women with autoimmune diseases like Lupus.

Patients with the following conditions or diseases are likely to develop anemia:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus or other autoimmune disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Cancer
  • Thyroid disease
  • Liver disease
  • Inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn disease or ulcerative colitis)

Anemia symptoms can be mild at first or simply overshadowed by symptoms from other diseases a patient might be suffering from. However, prolonged anemia can lead to serious health consequences.
