Anemia is the reduction in quantity of haemoglobin pigment in circulating blood. It is the manifestation of chronic inflammation, infection or malignancy in the body. The study sample comprised of total 30 participants in two groups. The mean haemoglobin of cirrhotics (9.86 ± 1.8 mg/dl) was lesser in comparison to haemoglobin (13.09 ± 1.76 mg/dl) of controls significantly (p<0.0001). Further, sample t-test revealed a significant (p<0.0001) reduction in concentration of haemoglobin of cirrhotics at a cut off (13 mg/dl). The anemia in cirrhotics covariated significantly (p=0.05), with hypoalbuminemia, as revealed in Pearson’s coeffiecient of correlation (r=0.043).
