What are Blood Disorders?

Blood disorders describe a wide range of conditions that affect the body’s blood, including red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma. These disorders can be congenital or acquired and may result in poor blood function, leaving patients at risk for infection, bleeding, fatigue or clotting. Common blood disorders include anemia, hemophilia, leukemia and lymphoma.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the symptoms of a blood disorder?

Symptoms of a blood disorder can vary depending on the specific condition, but common symptoms may include fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath, frequent infections, enlarged lymph nodes, abdominal pain and pallor.

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms or have concerns about a potential blood disorder, we recommend scheduling an appointment with our specialists for an evaluation.

Can low iron lead to a blood disorder?

Low iron levels can lead to a condition referred to as anemia, which is one of the most common blood disorders. Anemia occurs when your body doesn’t have enough red blood cells or hemoglobin resulting in fatigue, weakness, shortness of breath and pale skin. If you are experiencing symptoms of anemia, our specialists can perform an evaluation to determine the cause and provide appropriate treatment to address any underlying issues.

If I inherited a blood disorder, should my family members get genetic testing?

If you have been diagnosed with an inherited blood disorder, your family members may want to consider genetic testing. Many disorders such as thalassemia and hemophilia are inherited conditions, meaning they can be passed down from parents to their children. Genetic testing can help identify whether family members carry the gene associated with the blood disorder, allowing for early detection and intervention.
