what are the side effects of anemia?

Many: Feeling tired, exercise intolerance, rapid pulse, high systolic and low diastolic blood pressure, pallor, fatigue, "depression", being called "lazy". The greatest danger is missing a treatable cause, and unless you are very poorly nourished or on a charlatan's diet there's some medical cause for every new anemia. Especially in adults, it's cancer of the stomach or colon until proved otherwise.
