A short answer: Hypochromic microcytic anemia is usually due to not enough iron available to make hemoglobin. Sidero-achrestic anemia has iron available but can not incorporate into hemoglobin in bone marrow. It is associated with abnormal ringed sideroblastic red cells in blood, and can also be hypochromic microcytic. Another form of achrestic anemia is a chronic progressive macrocytic anemia. ...Read more

My 13 yrs daughter is microcytic hypochromic anaemic, eating habits are not good and now complaining about back ache is it due to anemia or what?

Either way, an anemia deserves a thorough workup with your medical doctor, and treatment of your hypothyroidism. Best wishes! ...Read more
Not skin-but blood: Hypochromic microcytic anemia is a blood disorder that typically occurs due to iron deficiency, but may also be seen with some genetic conditions known as thalassemia.

Anaemia means low haemoglobin or less red cells than usual. It can be different kinds depending on how cells look under microscope- microcytic (small cells), macrocyclic (large cells), normocytic (normal cells).
Microcytic anaemia can be due to less iron, thyroid issues, lead poisoning, thallasemia (genetic disorder), or certain diseases.

Early IDA possible: Hypochromic suggests low iron (which can be measured by ferritin, transferrin, etc). Usually this would be from blood loss. Usually iron deficiency anemia (ida) is also assoc w/ microcytic (low mcv) red blood cells (rbcs). It depends on the numbers, other tests & history, but could be early iron deficiency/blood loss &/or more than one process -- eg b12/folate deficiency & ida. See md. ...Read more
My hemoglobin count is 13.8 I'm a 28 yr old f. My blood count report says I'm hypochromic? Wat does that mean
Probably nothing: If the MCHC is only slightly out of range, I'd ignore it. Reference ranges are set so that several percent of healthies fall outside. In the absence of anemia, abnormal indices seldom mean anything unless they are way-far off. At your age, a routine iron study may be in order. ...Read more
It shows moderate hypochromic and moderate anisopoikilocytosis in my sons blood test result. What does it mean?
Big words!: The first word means your sons red blood cells are somewhat pale. The second word means the coloring that is left and the size of the red blood cells are somewhat varied. Usually these cells are a pretty standard size, so when they are varied in size and color it means that they are out in his blood stream too early, most likely because of anemia. The most common anemia in his age is iron deficiency ...Read more
