Anemia

(En español: Anemia)

Say: uh-nee-mee-uh

Red blood cells carry oxygen all over our bodies. People who have anemia have fewer red blood cells than normal, which can make them feel tired because not enough oxygen is getting to their bodies' cells. There are a lot of reasons why a person may have anemia, but a common reason why some kids get anemia is because they don't get enough iron in the foods they eat. Iron is needed for red blood cells to work.
