In brief: Anemia

Low blood usually refers to anemia, which means you don't have enough red blood cells or enough iron in your blood.

In brief: Anemia

"low blood" is usually meant to denote anemia, where your body is not making enough red blood cells.
This has many, many causes and your doctor should do further testing to determine the cause. If you care about living longer, stop smoking. The time to quit is before you have your final heart attack, and quitting can extend both your life and your health. Talk to your doctor about quitting!
