You don’t have enough haemoglobin in your blood.
Blood is made up of blood plasma and blood cells. The blood cells also include red blood cells. They contain haemoglobin, the pigment that gives the blood its red color. This pigment is important for carrying oxygen in the blood. Haemoglobin needs various nutrients to be formed. These nutrients include various proteins, vitamins and iron, for example.
If you don't have enough haemoglobin, you can look pale and be very tired. You can also get breathless and feel weak.
