This condition mainly affects red blood cells, which carry oxygen from the lungs to tissues throughout the body. it leads to hemolytic anemia.hemolytic anemia is most often triggered by bacterial or viral infections or by certain drugs (such as some antibiotics and medications used to treat malaria. can i still go for ssb??

      During Initial medical you will furnish all these details and chances are high that you will not be clearing medical. ARMY training consists lots of running, everyday and throughout year. I will be harmful to your body and might get severe injury.

      If condition is like that, I suggest don’t go.

      You are under weight my friend. You need to take more number of calories then only wight will increase.

      Start physical workout / go to gym – try weight training it helps. (Gym supported with protein for calories)
