In brief: Anemia
Is another term for low blood counts.
There are multiple causes including but not at all limited to blood loss (menstrual periods, bleeding from the GI tract), nutritional deficiencies (iron, folate, (folic acid) b 12), chronic illnesses, medications, and bone marrow problems. Your dr. Should be able to help you figure out what is causing your low blood counts and if it's serious or not.
