The present study was conducted in Peshawar, Pakistan in September 2016 on anemic patients. Total 100 samples were collected from the age of 18 months to 80 years in EDTA tubes and complete blood count was done on Sysmex kx-21. Results indicated that total of 48% were found anemic, 25(52%) females and 23(47%) males showed positive results of having HB level lower than normal range. Results showed that females are more anemic as compare to male. Highest rate of anemia is observed in patients of age group of 21-40 i-e (31.25%). The hematological parameters are different due to age and the body required rotten diet containing iron supplements. The prevalence of anemia increases with passage of time and in different age groups. Recent studies showed that anemia is a wide spread problem and it requires special attention of public/private sector through awareness, health education and dietary guidance.
