In brief: Anemia

Anemia is a condition when hemoglobin level is below the normal range.
It can be caused by many things- i.e. Bleeding, iron, vit B12 deficiency, red blood cell destruction, , bone marrow failure etc. It can be so severe- such as in massive bleeding- and people do die from massive bleeding if bleeding can't be controlled. In chronic case- heart failure, other organ dysfunction/failure can happen.
