This is one amidst many misconceptions heard of during dietary counseling, the belief that when one is having low blood pressure or hypotension he instantaneously thinks that he is anemic as well. People either believe them to be one and the same or that it is directly connected to each other. They may be related at times but not always so.
The problem is conclusively due to their definition of these two different ailments. They can occur at the same time, Anemia can even be a prerequisite of Hypotension, but they are not diagnosed as one. Let us then distinguish them from one after the other:
“Anemia, one of the more common blood disorders, occurs when the level of healthy red blood cells (RBCs) in the body becomes too low. This can lead to health problems because RBCs contain hemoglobin, which carries oxygen to the body's tissues. Anemia can cause a variety of complications, including fatigue and stress on bodily organs.” ~ As defined by Kids Health from Nemours“Low blood pressure (hypotension) is pressure so low it causes symptoms or signs due to the low flow of blood through the arteries and veins. When the flow of blood is too low to deliver enough oxygen and nutrients to vital organs such as the brain, heart, and kidney, the organs do not function normally and may be permanently damaged.” ~ As defined by MedicineNet.com
