FAQ's For Blood Disorder

Some of the most common blood disorders include iron-deficiency anaemia, haemophilia and blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma.

Blood tests, bone marrow tests and imaging tests (X-ray, CT scan and MRIs) are used to determine if a patient has a certain blood disorder.

Common causes of blood disorders include genetics, lack of certain nutrients, or adverse reactions to certain medications.

It depends on the type of blood disorder. While conditions like iron-deficiency anaemia are curable with appropriate diet changes and supplements, blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma are long-term and not definitively curable.

No. Blood disorders are problems with the components of blood (RBCs, WBCs, platelets and plasma). High blood pressure is a condition which causes increased strain on the heart muscles due to constriction of the blood vessels.


Blood disorders are any disorders which affect the 4 main components of blood: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma.

Blood disorder types depend on what component of blood is being affected.
Disorders of the red blood cells include:
Iron-deficiency anaemia
Pernicious anaemia
Anaemia of chronic disease
Aplastic anaemia
Autoimmune hemolytic anaemia
Thalassemia
Sickle-cell anaemia
Polycythaemia vera
Malaria

Disorders of the white blood cells include:
Lymphoma
Leukemia
Multiple myeloma
Myelodysplastic syndrome

Disorders of the platelets include:
Thrombocytopenia
Idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura
Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura
Essential thrombocytosis

Disorders of the plasma include:
Haemophilia
Von Willebrand disease
Hypercoaguable state
Deep venous thrombosis
Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC)

Blood disorder symptoms vary depending on the type. However, the overarching symptoms of a decrease in red blood cells include fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath and pale skin. In cases of an increased number of RBCs, thickening of blood can occur causing headaches and a red complexion (plethora).
Decreased WBCs can cause recurring fevers and infections due to low immunity. Increased WBC count can cause thickening of blood.
Decreased thrombocytes can cause abnormal bleeding and bruising, while increased thrombocytes can cause excessive blood clotting.

Some symptoms that are more indicative of a blood disorder include:
Blood clot (phlebitis), usually in the legs (most often causes swelling, redness, or warmth of the leg and shortness of breath)
Petechiae (a fine, pin-point, red skin rash) caused by too few platelets
Blood blisters in the mouth (caused by too few platelets or clotting issues)
Swollen lymph nodes caused by white blood cell cancers (such as leukemia or lymphoma)
Pallor (pale skin) caused by anaemia
Pica (eating of ice, dirt, or clay) suggesting iron-deficiency anaemia

Blood disorder causes include genetics, lack of certain nutrients, or adverse reactions to certain medications.

Treatment of blood disorders can be done by the following methods:
Chemotherapy in the case of blood cancers
Growth factors to stimulate blood cell production
Steroids and other drugs to supress an overactive immune system
Transfusions to introduce new, healthy cells
Immunotherapy
Gene therapy

If a patient suffers from iron-deficiency anaemia, is important to eat an iron-rich diet containing foods like green leafy vegetables, meat sources, pulses, dry fruits, nuts, etc. HerbsDaily offers a wide range of supplements effective in maintaining a healthy, balanced diet necessary to fight blood disorders.
