Centrum Anaemia Causes and Reviews

If you have anemia, your blood does not carry enough oxygen to the rest of your body. The most common cause of anemia is not having enough iron. Your body needs iron to make hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an iron-rich protein that gives the red color to blood. It carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body.

Anemia has three main causes: blood loss, lack of red blood cell production, and high rates of red blood cell destruction.

Conditions that may lead to anemia include

  • Heavy periods
  • Pregnancy
  • Ulcers
  • Colon polyps or colon cancer
  • Inherited disorders
  • A diet that does not have enough iron, folic acid or vitamin B12
  • Blood disorders such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, or cancer
  • Aplastic anemia, a condition that can be inherited or acquired
  • G6PD deficiency, a metabolic disorder

Anemia can make you feel tired, cold, dizzy, and irritable. You may be short of breath or have a headache.

Your doctor will diagnose anemia with a physical exam and blood tests. Treatment depends on the kind of anemia you have.

what is the first feeling in taking Centrum complete from a to zinc

Sun, 26 Jul 2009
I get stomach pain 10-20 minutes after taking Centrum and it lasts around 20-30 minutes
Tue, 25 Aug 2009
I have taken Centrum for almost 15 years with no side effects, until last year. Beginning last year, I began getting dizzy and light headed. I also take glucosamene together with Centrum, however, so I was not sure it was the Centrum, until this past week when I decided to take Centrum alone. I almost immediately got the dizzy and lightheadedness, which subsides if I drink milk, or ate cold cereal with milk. I now realize whatever Centrum added around 1 1/2 years ago is probably causing these symptoms. Are these doing me harm?
Wed, 02 Dec 2009
I take toprol xl for high blood pressure, and Zoloft for depression. I was taking Centrum silver and started getting higher blood pressure, anxiety, but what really scared me was when i got up one morning, my left leg gave out on me, this has never happened ever. I felt better once I stopped the Centrum.
