What would be the consequences of a deficiency of haemoglobin in our bodies?

AcademicBiologyNCERTClass 10

Hemoglobin is present in red blood cells that carry oxygen to different cells of the body. 
A decrease in its amount will result in a decrease in the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood. The person may feel weak, pale, lethargic, and unable to do physical exercise. He/she may suffer from breathlessness and fatigue, which are also symptoms of anemia.

The deficiency of hemoglobin in the human body results in anemia. 

Importance of Haemoglobin: The oxygen-carrying pigment in the blood is hemoglobin. A lack of hemoglobin in the bloodstream can impair the oxygen-carrying ability of red blood cells. Hemoglobin is critical since it is the respiratory enzyme that transports oxygen. The binding of hemoglobin to oxygen occurs at four different locations. This binding does not happen all at once, but rather in stages. The first oxygen molecule bonds to the first site, followed by the others. In anemia, hemoglobin shortage may result in reduced oxygen binding and low oxygen content reaching human tissues, as well as other complications.

Anaemia is a blood disorder characterized by a lack of healthy red blood cells with inadequate hemoglobin. This causes a reduction in the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood, resulting in weariness, skin pallor, shortness of breath, and dizziness.
