Overview

Normocytic anemia is a common issue that occurs for men and women typically over 85 years old. Its prevalence increases with age, reaching 44 percent in men older than 85 years.[1] Normocytic anemia is the most frequently encountered type of anemia.[1]

Causes

The issue is thought of as representing any of the following:

  • a decreased production of normal-sized red blood cells (e.g., anemia of chronic disease, aplastic anemia);
  • an increased destruction or loss of red blood cells (e.g., hemolysis, posthemorrhagic anemia);
  • an uncompensated increase in plasma volume (e.g., pregnancy, fluid overload);
  • or a mixture of conditions producing microcytic and macrocytic anemia.[1]
