Blood Disorder- 7 Important Things to know

All About Blood Disorder

Transportation is an important thing for the people, without transportation nothing will happen in the people’s life. Because each and every daily need is arriving in our hands with the help of transportation. Same way human body also needs excellent transportation within the body. Every organ needs vitamins, nutrition and energy. Blood acts as transportation from the top to bottom of the body. Blood is playing an awesome role in supplying all needs for each and every organ in the body. Good blood circulation will keep the body healthy and active. But sometimes people get blood disorders.

Blood Disorder 

Before going to see about blood disorders, we should know what jobs are doing by the blood in the body. 

  • Red blood cells carry oxygen throughout the body.
  • White blood cells help prevent the body from infection.
  • Platelets help blood to clot so people don’t bleed more than normal.

When the blood is not able to do its job, that condition is called a blood disorder. 

Blood disorders may be cancerous or non cancerous, but in this article we see in depth about the non cancerous blood disorders. There are few reasons for blood disorders and this disorder also reveals some symptoms in the body. Sometimes blood disorders do not reveal the symptoms, but most of the blood disorders are easily cured by providing the right treatment at the right time. Some of the incurable blood disorders also affect human body health and that can be life-threatening.

Reason For Blood disorder

Each disorder and disease has some reasons. Same way blood disorder has some reasons. They are

  • Genes.
  • Suffering from other diseases.
  • Side effects of medicines and drugs.
  • Lack of some nutrition in the food diet.

 How does blood disorder affect the human body?

Commonly blood disorder mainly affects the blood cells and platelets and cause issues such as 

  • Increase blood clots and makes health risks. One example for blood clotting disorder is Factor V Leiden
  • Blood bleeding is more than normal because blood doesn’t form blood clots. Example for blood bleeding disorder is Inherited hemophilia.

What are common blood disorder symptoms?

Symptoms of blood disorder depend on the specific blood disorder and its impact on blood.

  • Fatigue and weakness.
  • Dizziness.
  • Skin that’s paler than usual.
  • Fast heartbeat (heart palpitations).
  • Shortness of breath.

What are common blood clotting disorders?

A blood clotting disorder mainly affects platelets or clotting factors. Clotting factors are proteins in the human blood. Platelets and clotting factors make blood clots, which control or halt the bleeding. Blood clotting disorders are also called hypercoagulable states or Thrombophilia. Here I wants to mention some of the blood clotting disorders such as:

  • Prothrombin gene mutation: This disorder increases the risk of developing abnormal blood clots in veins (deep vein thrombosis) and the organ of lungs.
  • Antiphospholipid syndrome: One of the rare auto-immune disorders, which affects people who have lupus, can cause blood clots in several parts and regions of the body.
  • Protein S deficiency: One of the natural anticoagulants in the blood is Protein S. Anticoagulants protect the blood from clotting. Protein S plays a vital role to keep other proteins from making too many blood clots. This is a very rare inherited disorder.
  • Protein C deficiency: Protein C is a natural anticoagulant like protein S, that protects the human from developing too many blood clots.
  • Antithrombin deficiency: This inherited disorder improves the chance of high risk of deep vein thrombosis.
  • Paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria: when a poor immune system attacks red blood cells, this rare blood disorder happens and increases the chance of risk of blood clots.
  • Disseminated intravascular coagulation (DIC): This blood disorder causes uncontrollable bleeding or clotting in the body.

Few people with blood clotting orders have an increased risk of stroke disease and heart attack problems. So, immediately seek a doctor’s help while facing chest pain and difficulty breathing. Additionally if you want to know more on heart attack prevention, an article on ways to prevent heart attacks published on is really helpful.

Common Blood disorder symptoms

The most common symptom is excessive bleeding and continues for a long time. People should to talk to their healthcare provider if they having any of the following symptoms:

  • Nosebleeds: Nosebleeds that last longer than 10 minutes and this condition will happen minimum five or more times a year.
  • Excessive bleeding: Cuts or wounds that blood bleed longer than 10 minutes.
  • Internal bleeding.
  • Bruises: After a minor injury this will happen without any reason.
  • Post-surgery bleeding: Heavy bleeding occurring after any kind of surgery, including dental surgery.
  • Menstrual bleeding(Heavy periods ): This is bleeding that’s so heavy, women need to change their pad or tampon every hour or have bleeding that lasts longer than five to seven days. Women also face heavy bleeding issues after childbirth or miscarriage.
  • Blood in poop: Blood present in the human poop or bleeding after pooping may be a symptom of other medical health issues. So, immediately seeking medical help is good for the body’s health. 
  • Blood in pee: When a person notices blood in the urine, seeking immediate medical help is good for their body health. 

What are common Blood disorder?

When the blood doesn’t clot normally bleeding disorders will happen and cause bleeding more than usual. Bleeding disorders such as

Von Willebrand disease: The most common bleeding disorder condition in the United States is Von Willebrand disease. Most people who have this disease due to inherited a mutated gene from one of their biological parents. Few people develop this condition as cancers, auto-immune disorders, heart and blood vessel diseases.

Inherited hemophilia: When a person suffering from this disorder he/she may bleeding more than usual. There are three types of hemophilia disorder. They are 

  • Type A or classic hemophilia
  • Type B 
  • Type C (Rosenthal syndrome)

Thrombocytopenia: When a person has a low platelet count, he/she faces this condition. 

Fibrinogen deficiency conditions: Fibrinogen is another protein that prevents blood clot. If a person doesn’t have enough fibrinogen he/she may have abnormal bleeding or clotting issues.

There are so many advanced medical technologies available to deal with these blood related disorders, but people should take immediate action in their body. Following the medical guidelines properly to keep the body healthy.
