An anemia is a common medical condition whereby there is a deficiency of the hemoglobin or red blood cells in the human body. Extrinsic anemia happens due to the destruction of the red blood cells in the body, whereas intrinsic anemia develops when the red blood cells produced by your body are defective. Red blood cells have the primary function of carrying the oxygen inside the body from the lungs to the heart. The bone marrow of a person is responsible for making the red blood cells in the body. And when the red blood cells start dying through destruction then hemolytic anemia occurs.
