Treatment of diseases related to blood
- One of the most common hematology tests is the complete blood count, or CBC.
This test is often conducted during a routine exam and can detect anemia, clotting problems, blood cancers, immune system disorders and infections.
- Chemotherapy. This is given by a specialist called a hematologist-oncologist. It infuses your body with chemicals to kill fast-growing cancer cells.
- Bone marrow transplant. Also called a stem cell transplant, it replaces diseased stem cells from the spongy center of your bone with healthy cells from other parts of your body or from a donor.

Wondering why you feel chilly?
This condition might be a cause. Anemia happens when you don’t have enough healthy red blood cells to bring your body all the oxygen it needs. It will leave you tired, weak, dizzy, and short of breath. It can also make you cold, especially your hands and feet. Your doctor will find the cause and tell you if you need changes in your diet, supplements, or another treatment.
