Normocytic normochromic anemia means size of RBC is normal and hemoglobin content of RBC is normal. ...blood loss or any underlying chronic disease can cause this type of anemia with reduction of total RBC count...get evaluated

Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Normocytic means the cell apperance. The RBC looks normal.
Normochromic means the RBCs look properly stained indicating normal amount of Hb in them.
Have a high protein diet. And include lits of fruits and vegetables in your diet .
Best regards.
Dr. Anil kumar jain.
