Anemia is inadequate numbers of red blood cells. Red blood cells are filled with iron containing molecules and when there is not enough iron the red blood cells are small (microcytic). Low levels of blood cells which carry oxygen can result in dizziness. However low levels of iron measured in the blood may not result in anemia. You should be checked by a doctor.

A separate type of blood test can be performed to find out if you actually have anemia or not. If you do, then this could be the cause of dizziness.
