What is Hemolytic Anemia?
(Symptoms, Causes & Treatment)
According to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, Hemolytic anemia is a condition in which red blood cells are destroyed and removed from the bloodstream before their normal lifespan is over. When blood cells die, the body’s bone marrow makes more blood cells to replace them. However, in hemolytic anemia, the bone marrow can’t make red blood cells fast enough to meet the body’s needs. Hemolytic anemia can lead to numerous health problems including fatigue, pain, irregular heartbeats or arrhythmias, an enlarged heart, and heart failure.
There are many types of hemolytic anemia. Treatment and outlook depend on what type you have and how severe it is. The condition can develop suddenly or slowly. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. Hemolytic anemia often can be successfully treated or controlled. Mild hemolytic anemia may need no treatment at all. Severe hemolytic anemia requires prompt and proper treatment, or it may be fatal.
