Overview

Anemia goes undetected in many people, and symptoms can be vague. The signs and symptoms are similar in different types of anemia. The presentation may vary depending on the acuteness of onset, hematocrit levels, and the general health conditions of the patient (age, sex, pregnancy, cardiac conditions, and any other comorbidities) rather than only the etiology behind the anemia. A hematocrit level of between 30 - 35 usually produces no symptoms whereas, a fall of heamtocrit levels to 15 - 20 may produce severe symptoms (shortness of breath, syncope). However, most patients will experience some symptoms related to anemia when the hemoglobin level reaches 7 g/dL.
