Anemia is a medical condition that is characterized by a low red blood cell count. These cells are responsible for transporting oxygen to every part of the body and take back carbon dioxide to the lungs for removal. Since oxygen is the fuel needed to burn glucose and other nutrients to produce the energy needed by the body, a low RBC count means that your body will be weaker than it should be. Furthermore, you will not be able to engage in any strenuous activities, such as running or jogging because your RBC cannot supply enough oxygen to meet the body’s energy needs. Doctors normally prescribe anabolic steroids to help increase the RBC count of anemic patients, thereby treating the illness. However, continued use of steroids will be required.
