The correct answer to this question is Macrocytic. This is a type of anemia. With this type, red blood cells are more significant than the volume that they usually are. It is not regarded as a disease but just a condition. It can be treated with vitamin injections or oral vitamins.

The name macrocytic means large cell. There are various types of macrocytic anemias. One is megaloblastic anemia. With this condition, the battery is more significant because it is unable to product DNA promptly to have them split as they grow. Without them splitting, they end up growing too large

Macrocytic anemia is a condition in which your body has overly big red blood cells and not enough typical red blood cells. Most of the time, this condition is caused by a lack of vitamin B12 and folate. It can sometimes also signify an underlying condition. Some of the symptoms include loss of weight, brittle or broken nails, fast heartbeat, diarrhea, fatigue, pale or pasty skin, shortness of breath, poor concentration or confusion, and memory loss.

Macrocytic anemia can be divided into two categories; these include megaloblastic anemia and non-megaloblastic macrocytic anemia. Treatment of macrocytic anemia includes but is not limited to B12 injections and a balanced diet including chicken, fish, red meats, and dark leafy greens, which only include vitamin B12.
