What does it mean when you have low red blood cells?

Your hemoglobin is abnormal or low, the cells in your body will not get enough oxygen. Symptoms of anemia -- like fatigue -- occur because organs aren't getting what they need to function properly.
The Red blood cells produced in the bone marrow and released into the bloodstream when they mature, usually have a lifespan of approximately 120 days and are continuously renewed as they degrade or are lost through bleeding. RBCs carry oxygen throughout the body while circulating in the blood. If RBCs are lost or destroyed faster than they can be replaced or the bone marrow production is perturbed, or if the produced RBCs do not function properly, then a person will become anemic. It is a condition in which the amount of oxygen reaching tissues decreases.
