BLOOD DISORDERS 2 Blood Disorders In the first scenario it talks about Amy who is a 4 year old female is complaining about being tired all the time. Her skin has become pale and she is a very picky eater. From the symptoms that have been explained it seems that Amy has a blood disorder called anemia. There are different types of anemia but the symptoms are pretty common in all of the different types. Fatigue, dizziness, pale skin, leg cramps, and insomnia are just a few of the symptoms that can arise from anemia. When a doctor diagnoses a person with anemia they will do a medical history on the person and perform different blood test. It is always good to provide the doctor with any detailed history about your family’s medical history as well as your diet and medication that you may take on a regular basis. Blood test that will be perform will confirm your anemia as well as what is causing it. Usually anemia develops when blood does not have enough healthy red blood cells.
