My mother tells me that I have the anemia trait, but I don't even know much about what anemia is except that it usually indicates a deficiency of something like iron or protein....
She also says that I basically cant marry someone with the anemia trait because all our kids or 50% of my births would result in anemia ... My mother had two miscarriages before she had my brother and I and assumes that (since my father also has the anemia trait) the first two babies would have been the anemic ones ...

Is having the anemia trait a health risk ?? (I'm almost always cold to the point where i would wear hoodies in the summer time sometimes and I heard that being cold all the time is a symptom of anemia...)

And if i have the anemia trait, does that ean I can't give blood or donate my organs ?
