In brief: Treat anemia

People with significant anemia (low red blood cell count) have a reduced ability to deliver oxygen to the brain and other organs of the body.
Correcting anemia with a blood transfusion can improve the symptoms of anemia such as fatigue and dizziness, and in more serious cases can be life-saving.
