Anemia affects an estimated 400 million women across the world, most of whom
don’t recognize its symptoms—shortness of breath, fatigue, weakness, headaches
and lapses of concentration—mistakenly attributing these to the stresses of modern
life. Anemia can lead to infertility, premature delivery in pregnant women and,
in severe cases, fainting and mental confusion in women of all ages.
Caused by low levels of hemoglobin, anemia is both preventable and treatable.
In Anemia in Women, Joan Gomez discusses the different types of anemia that can
occur at various stages of life, as well as the prevention, treatment and self-help
options available.
