Diagnosing anaemia in pregnancy in rural clinics: assessing the potential of the Haemoglobin Colour Scale. (1/4177)

Anaemia in pregnancy is a common and severe problem in many developing countries. Because of lack of resources and staff motivation, screening for anaemia is often solely by clinical examination of the conjunctiva or is not carried out at all. A new colour scale for the estimation of haemoglobin concentration has been developed by WHO. The present study compares the results obtained using the new colour scale on 729 women visiting rural antenatal clinics in Malawi with those obtained by HemoCue haemoglobinometer and electronic Coulter Counter and with the assessment of anaemia by clinical examination of the conjunctiva. Sensitivity using the colour scale was consistently better than for conjunctival inspection alone and interobserver agreement and agreement with Coulter Counter measurements was good. The Haemoglobin Colour Scale is simple to use, well accepted, cheap and gives immediate results. It shows considerable potential for use in screening for anaemia in antenatal clinics in settings where resources are limited.  (+info)

'Common' uncommon anemias. (2/4177)

Of the uncommon anemias, "common" types include the anemia of renal disease, thalassemia, myelodysplastic syndrome and the anemia of chronic disease. These conditions may be suggested by the clinical presentation, laboratory test values and peripheral blood smear, or by failure of the anemia to respond to iron supplements or nutrient replacement. The principal cause of the anemia of renal disease is a decreased production of red blood cells related to a relative deficiency of erythropoietin. When treatment is required, erythropoietin is administered, often with iron supplementation. In the anemia of chronic disease, impaired iron transport decreases red blood cell production. Treatment is predominantly directed at the underlying condition. Since iron stores are usually normal, iron administration is not beneficial. Thalassemia minor results from a congenital abnormality of hemoglobin synthesis. The disorder may masquerade as mild iron deficiency anemia, but iron therapy and transfusions are often not indicated. In the myelodysplastic syndrome, blood cell components fail to mature, and the condition may progress to acute nonlymphocytic leukemia. The rate of progression depends on the subtype of myelodysplasia, but the leukemia is usually resistant to therapy.  (+info)

Anaemia in the patient with renal insufficiency: documenting the impact and reviewing treatment strategies. (3/4177)

This paper attempts to present a context in which nephrologists can re-evaluate definitions of acceptable haemoglobin levels in renal populations, and re-examine previous notions about the impact of relative and absolute anaemia on patients with progressive renal insufficiency. Also, the nephrology community needs to examine rigorously treatment strategies aimed at reversing anaemia specifically in this population. Data are presented to support the notion that anaemia is disadvantageous to the patients with progressive renal insufficiency, and does need to be treated. The ongoing poor prognosis of patients receiving renal replacement therapy may well be due to our previous inattention to this correctable cause of morbidity early in the course of progressive renal disease. Long-term studies addressing these important clinical issues need to be supported, and evaluated within both immediate and future economic implications.  (+info)

Kleine-Levin and Munchausen syndromes in a patient with recurrent acromegaly. (4/4177)

Hypothalamic disease often affects the patients' personality and this also applies to pituitary tumors with suprasellar extension. We report on a patient with a 12-year history of recurrent acromegaly, treated with three transphenoidal operations, single field radiation therapy and bromocriptine/octreotide administration. During the course of follow-up she presented with self-inflicted anemia and Kleine-Levin syndrome (hypersomnia, hyperphagia and hypersexuality). Furthermore, she developed post-radiation necrosis within the right temporal lobe. Whether her neurological and personality disorders result - at least partially - from the acromegaly or the temporal lobe necrosis remains unclear.  (+info)

Decreased lactic acidosis and anemia after transfusion of o-raffinose cross-linked and polymerized hemoglobin in severe murine malaria. (5/4177)

Severe anemia is a major cause of death in falciparum malaria. Blood transfusion increases survival in humans and in animal models of this disease. Because of logistic constraints and viral contamination of the blood supply, transfusions are frequently not practical in endemic regions. Modified hemoglobin is an effective O2 carrier in hemorrhagic shock. It is free of infectious contamination, may not require refrigeration, and because of its nitric oxide scavenging and small size, may have pharmacologic benefits in malaria. The effects of transfusions of modified hemoglobin in rats with high-grade parasitemia were evaluated. Modified hemoglobin decreased lactic acidosis and corrected anemia as well as transfusions with red blood cells; these findings may correlate with improved survival and suggest a possible proerythropoietic effect. Further study of this novel therapy is warranted.  (+info)

Regional left ventricular dysfunction in a patient with severe prolonged anemia. (6/4177)

A 47-year-old woman with severe prolonged anemia developed heart failure. After treatment of the heart failure and anemia, she showed regional dysfunction of the left ventricular wall and myocardial fatty acid metabolism was disturbed in these sites. Coronary arteriography showed normal images. It took about 4 months to recover both left ventricular wall motion and fatty acid metabolism. Prolonged decrease of oxygen supply to the myocardium, which is caused by severe prolonged anemia, seemed to affect the myocardial function in this case, which could be another model of anemia-related myocardial dysfunction.  (+info)

Treatment of multiple myeloma. (7/4177)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Multiple myeloma (MM) accounts for about 10% of all hematologic malignancies. The standard treatment with intermittent courses of melphalan and prednisone (MP) was introduced more than 30 years ago and, since then there has been little improvement in event-free and overall survival (EFS & OS). The aim of this article is to review: 1) the role of initial chemotherapy (ChT), maintenance treatment with alpha-interferon and salvage ChT, 2) the results of high-dose therapy (HDT) followed by allogeneic or autologous stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT and auto-SCT), and 3) the most important supportive measures. EVIDENCE AND INFORMATION SOURCES: The authors of this review have been actively working and contributing with original investigations on the treatment of MM during the last 15 years. In addition, the most relevant articles and recent abstracts published in journals covered by the Science Citation Index and Medline are also reviewed. STATE OF THE ART AND PERSPECTIVES: The importance of avoiding ChT in asymptomatic patients (smoldering MM) is emphasized. The criteria and patterns of response are reviewed. MP is still the standard initial ChT with a response rate of 50-60% and an OS of 2-3 years. Combination ChT usually increases the response rate but does not significantly influence survival when compared with MP. Exposure to melphalan should be avoided in patients in whom HDT followed by auto-SCT is planned, in order to not preclude the stem cell collection. The median response duration to initial ChT is 18 months. Interferon maintenance usually prolongs response duration but in most studies does not significantly influence survival (a large meta-analysis by the Myeloma Trialists' Collaborative Group in Oxford is being finished). In alkylating-resistant patients, the best rescue regimens are VBAD or VAD. In patients already resistant to VBAD or VAD and in those in whom these treatments are not feasible we recommend a conservative approach with alternate day prednisone and pulse cyclophosphamide. While HDT followed by autotransplantation is not recommended for patients with resistant relapse, patients with primary refractory disease seem to benefit from early myeloablative therapy. Although results from large randomized trials are still pending in order to establish whether early HDT intensification followed by auto-SCT is superior to continuing standard ChT in responding patients, the favorable experience with autotransplantation of the French Myeloma Intergroup supports this approach. However, although the complete response rate is higher with intensive therapy, the median duration of response is relatively short (median, 16 to 36 months), with no survival plateau. There are several ongoing trials comparing conventional ChT with HDT/autoSCT in order to identify the patients who are likely to benefit from one or another approach. With allo-SCT there is a transplant-related mortality ranging from 30 to 50% and also a high relapse rate in patients achieving CR. However, 10 to 20% of patients undergoing allo-SCT are long-term survivors (> 5 years) with no evidence of disease and, consequently, probably cured. The use of allogeneic peripheral blood stem cells (PBSC) in order to speed the engraftment and also the use of partially T-cell depleted PBSC which can decrease the incidence of graft-versus-host disease are promising approaches. In the setting of allo-SCT, donor lymphocyte infusion is an encouraging strategy in order to treat or prevent relapses. Finally, important supportive measures such as the treatment of anemia with erythropoietin, the management of renal failure and the use of bisphosphonates are reviewed.  (+info)

Isolation of infectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV) from Atlantic salmon in New Brunswick, Canada. (8/4177)

Infectious salmon anemia virus (ISAV) was isolated at a marine grow-out site in New Brunswick, Canada, from Atlantic salmon Salmo salar which experienced mortalities due to hemorrhagic kidney syndrome (HKS). Of 20 fish sampled in this study, 14 showed histologically various degrees of interstitial hemorrhaging, tubular epithelial degeneration and necrosis, and tubular casts in the posterior kidney, typical of HKS. Posterior kidney and spleen homogenates produced a cytopathic effect on chinook salmon embryo (CHSE-214) cells 10 to 14 d after inoculation. Pleomorphic virus particles in the size range 80 to 120 nm were seen by electron microscopy. The virus was confirmed as ISAV using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). This is a systematic diagnostic study of the isolation of ISAV on the North American continent and the first description of the growth of ISAV on the CHSE-214 cell line.  (+info)

Normocytic Anemias are a categorization of anemias defined as those anemias which display normal-sized erythrocytes (i.e. Normal Mean Corpuscular Volume or MCV) and low reticulocyte counts. In general, normocytic anemias are caused by failure of the bone marrow to conduct proper hematopoiesis; consequently, normocytic anemias typically occur in the context of an overall pancytopenia. Failure of the bone marrow may be due to inherent defects of the marrow itself as in aplastic anemia and the myelodysplastic syndromes, or may be due to exogenous infiltration of the bone marrow by malignant cells or infectious organisms (myelophthisic anemia ...
February 18, 2010: A $16 million grant from the National Institute on Aging will enable a team of national experts to study why unexplained anemia is so common in older adults and find better treatments. The Partnership for Anemia: Clinical and Translational Trials in the Elderly brings together specialists from seven leading centers to study older adults with unexplained anemia and to use the knowledge gained to develop improved therapies.
Doctor answers on Symptoms, Diagnosis, Treatment, and More: Dr. Alves on causes of normocytic anemia: Anemia can be due to many factors and to even begin to know, clues are found on the size(normo, macro, micro) and coloration (hypo(pale color), normochromic(normal red color). When red cells lack a normal center, as in spherical forms, " hyperchromic" is used loosely, though the correct term may be spherocytes. Hemolytic anemia, with many causes, lead to normochromic "hyperchromic"anemia. for topic: Causes Of Normocytic Anemia
Generally, the symptoms of anemia include tiredness or a feeling of having no energy. People with anemia may feel fatigued with shortness of breath. Their hands and feet may feel cold much of the time. Anemia may cause an individual to experience headaches, and dizziness. Pale skin and chest pain are also symptoms of anemia. The heart rhythm may also be affected since the red blood cell count is low. As a result, the heart has to work harder to pump oxygen carrying blood to all parts of the body. Risk factors for anemia. Males and females of all age groups and races are susceptible to anemia. Children who are under two are also at risk because their diets dont usually contain enough iron foods. Those of other age groups who fail to eat iron-rich food may find that they suffer from anemia. The group most at risk for anemia is women who are of childbearing age. Menstruation is the primary reason for this group being at risk. For some women menstrual periods result in the loss of much blood which ...
Cancer-related anaemia has a number of causes, not least the underlying malignancy itself which plays a role in suppressing erythropoiesis. Anaemia is often exacerbated by cancer treatments, in particular routinely used cytotoxic chemotherapy. Chronic anaemia of cancer is often characterized by inappropriately low levels of endogenous erythropoietin for the degree of anaemia, and manifests clinically with generalized hypoxia and resultant severe fatigue. Epoetin alfa is one recombinant form of erythropoietin, the primary human growth factor responsible for promoting proliferation and survival of erythroid progenitor cells. Epoetin alfa has been widely studied for the treatment of anaemia associated with renal failure and is now recognized as having significant potential in the management of cancer-related anaemia. Studies suggest that epoetin alfa is an effective treatment in a proportion of cancer patients with symptomatic anaemia. It also appears useful for the prevention of ...

This guest post was written by Elisha of My Health Maven. She is deeply passionate about educating people and empowering them to lead healthier lives. I encourage you to check out her blog.. According to the National Institutes of Healths, National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, there are more than 400 types of anemia. Anemia is generally diagnosed by your doctor through family history, physical exam and lab tests.. Anemia is a common blood condition that develops when your blood has a lower than normal number of healthy red blood cells. Anemia can also occur if your red blood cells dont contain enough hemoglobin. Many cases are mild and easily treated with supplements and nutritional changes, while other forms can be severe and life threatening.. It is important to treat anemia, as severe forms of anemia can damage your brain, heart and other organs in your body. Some forms of anemia can be long term and life threatening if not diagnosed and treated.. ...
Severe malarial anemia (SMA) is a leading cause of mortality among children in sub-Saharan Africa. Although the novel cytokine, interleukin (IL)-23, promotes anemia in chronic inflammatory diseases, the role of IL-23 in SMA remains undefined. Since IL-23 and IL-12 share the IL-12p40 subunit and IL-12Rbeta1 receptor, and are down-regulated by IL-10, relationships among these cytokines were explored in Kenyan children with varying severities of malarial anemia. Children with malarial anemia had increased circulating IL-23 and IL-10 and decreased IL-12 relative to healthy controls. Enhanced anemia severity and elevated parasitemia were associated with increased IL-10 relative to IL-23 and IL-12. Further exploration of the relationships among the cytokines using an in vitro model in which peripheral blood mononuclear cells were treated with synthetic hemozoin (sHz, malarial pigment) revealed that IL-12p35 and IL-23p19 transcripts had a sustained induction over 72 h, while IL-12p40 and IL-10 message ...
By: Louis Faye and Leyla Merlo Anemia OVERVIEW Anemia commonly occurs due to nutritional problems. Anemia is not Sex-Linked, it is Autosomal recessive. Autosomes are any chromosome other than a sex chromosome(X and Y). CAUSES DEMOGRAPHICS Women,teens,the elderly, and people with other types of chronic diseases are at higher risk of becoming anemic.(having anemia) Anemia -a condition due to a lack of hemoglobin/healthy red blood cells in the blood. Anemia can be caused by blood loss, decreased or faulty red blood cell production, and destruction of red blood cells.There are many forms of anemia, each with its own cause. Anemia can be temporary or long term, and ranges from mild to severe. Symptoms range from some fatigue and loss of energy,to unusually rapid heart beat, (particularly with exercise), shortness of breath and headache,(also w/exercise), difficulty concentrating, dizziness, leg cramps,pale skin, and insomnia. SYMPTOMS DIAGNOSIS You could receive blood tests(CBC count), genetic tests ...
MONDAY, March 29 (HealthDay News) -- Anemia increases the risk of death in patients who have had a heart attack and coronary angioplasty, particularly in those with multivessel disease and incomplete revascularization, according to a study in the March 1 issue of the American Journal of Cardiology.. Tomasz Kurek, M.D., and colleagues from the Medical University of Silesia in Zabrze, Poland, examined the effect of anemia on outcomes in 1,497 patients with acute myocardial infarction (AMI) treated with percutaneous coronary intervention. Of these, 16.6 percent had anemia, defined as hemoglobin ,13 g/dL for men and ,12 g/dL for women.. The researchers found that patients with anemia had significantly higher mortality rates at 30 days (13.2 versus 7.3 percent), one year (20.5 versus 11.3 percent), and overall (24.1 versus 12.7 percent). After adjusting for various factors, anemia predicted death from any cause (covariate-adjusted hazard ratio, 1.46). Long-term mortality was significantly higher in ...
Postpartum anemia is commonly defined as hemoglobin levels less than 8.5 g/dl and it is usually treated with oral iron supplements. Blood transfusion is reserved to women with hemoglobin levels , 6 g/dl and/or clinical symptoms of anemia. Without treatment, the restoration of blood parameters in postpartum anemia can take approximately one month (hemoglobin levels increase to 2.8 g/dl in 30 days). Several reports have demonstrated the efficacy of intravenous iron in severe anemia in non-obstetric pathologies. However, the clinical effect of intravenous iron in patients with postpartum hemoglobin levels ranging from 6.0 to 8.0 g/dl has been not reported. There has not been evaluated its capacity to restore hemoglobin levels and to minimize clinical side-effects of anemia (sickness, weariness, depression, anxiety ...
There are various types of disorders that your body can be affected if you have deficiency in proteins, calcium, minerals, iron etc.. Anemia is a disease that is caused due to the lack of red blood cells (RBC) in your body. The liquid made with various cell types is known as blood.. Deficiency of iron, hemoglobin percentage or RBC in the blood leads to anemia.. Red blood cells are the main cells that deliver oxygen to the whole body. If you are suffering with anemia you will have the low blood count and you will be named as anemic.. Anemia can occur due to the loss of red blood cells as production of RBC is slower than it is required and your body can be destroying RBC.. Iron deficiency anemia is the most important anemia that will be seen in the teens. This will occur due to the lack of iron in your blood. This anemia will be mostly seen in teens. Iron deficiency will be caused when the percentage of iron in your body is reduced.. This is the first step that leads to anemia. The continuous iron ...
Different medical conditions, including anemia, can affect mental health. Anemia is characterized as a health condition involving a deficiency in hemoglobin, which helps red blood cells carry oxygen, according to an article on www.familydoctor.org.. Many women know how it can feel to lose too much blood during their menstrual cycles. Iron deficiency can be caused by heavier periods, and this can lead to anemia in some cases, according to an article on www.familydoctor.org. This type of anemia is referred to as iron deficiency anemia. General mental health symptoms of anemia include fatigue, dizziness, headaches, difficulty thinking and concentrating, according to an article on the National Center for Biotechnology Information website.. Nzinga Harrison, a board-certified physician who specializes in general psychiatry and addiction, said in an email that anemia can have comparable symptoms to some mental health disorders.. "Anemia is one of the most prevalent illnesses in America that has mental ...
Anemia can be caused by a number of things, including:. * Loss like blood. This is one of those no-brainers: if a person loses blood, he loses red blood cells, so if he loses too much blood, hes going to have anemia. Fortunately, this kind about anemia is temporary (unless a guy just keeps on losing blood, in which case there might exist a significant problem that needs to be treated.). * Genetics. Some people are born with inherited conditions, such as sickle cell anemia and thalassemia, that can affect the bodys ability to universe firm color blood cells. In these instances, the anemia can be long term and lasting, unless lawful treatment is received.. * Autoimmune problems. Sometimes, the body gets its signals mixed up and starts destroying perfectly healthy red blood cells faster than it can create new ones, creating an autoimmune issue.. * Iron deficiency. This is a fairly common cause of anemia. Fagot plays a part in creating hemoglobin, which is the substance in red blood cells that ...
Vitamin deficiency anemia (or megaloblastic [MEG-uh-loh-BLASS-tik] anemia). Low levels of vitamin B12 or folate are the most common causes of this type of anemia. Vitamin B12 deficiency anemia (or pernicious [pur-NISH-us] anemia). This type of anemia happens due to a lack of vitamin B12 in the body. Your body needs vitamin B12 to make red blood cells and to keep your nervous system working normally. This type of anemia occurs most often in people whose bodies are not able to absorb vitamin B12 from food because of an autoimmune disorder. It also can happen because of intestinal problems.. You also can get this type of anemia if the foods you eat dont have enough vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is found in foods that come from animals. Fortified breakfast cereals also have vitamin B12. Folic acid supplements (pills) can treat this type of anemia. But, folic acid cannot treat nerve damage caused by a lack of vitamin B12.. With this type of anemia, your doctor may not realize that youre not getting ...
LONG BEACH, California-Treating anemia can reverse the declines it causes in physical function and quality of life for cancer patients and may have an impact on outcomes of cancer therapy, reported Simon Tchekmedyian, MD. Statistics suggest that anemia and its effects are under-recognized and undertreated, he noted, but barriers to treatment may fall as new therapeutic agents prove to be more effective and can be administered more easily and less frequently. 1
Background: Severe malarial anemia is a major cause of mortality from malaria. Although of enormous relevance, its pathogenesis is largely unknown. Interestingly, the extent of anemia greatly exceeds the loss of erythrocytes due to direct destruction by the pathogen Plasmodium falciparum. Immune response against the parasite is partially mediated through the Fc receptor for immunoglobulin (Ig) G IIa (FcγRIIa, CD32). The presence of an arginine instead of a histdine residue at amino acid position 131 (H131R) in the extracellular domain of FcγRIIa reduces the affinity of the receptor for IgG2 and IgG3 isotypes but increases the binding activity for C-reactive protein (CRP). Methods: In Ghana, West Africa, 2504 children with severe malaria and 2027 matched healthy controls were studied for the FcγRIIaH131R polymorphism in order to ascertain its influence on major manifestations of the disease. The study group included patients with partly overlapping symptoms of severe malaria, among them 1591 ...
There are many different things that can cause anemia. You can rule out different forms of anemia through most blood testing. Given the conditions you have and the medications listed, any of those can be contributing to anemia. Naproxen (a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory: NSAID) can cause increased bleeding time and bleeding which can lead to anemia. NSAIDs are often associated with GI bleeding if taken for long periods of time. Methotrexate is an immunosuppressant and has a labeled side effect of aplastic anemia, which is caused from suppression of the bone marrow leading to a decrease in the production of red blood cells. Plaquenil is also associated with aplastic anemia through bone marrow suppression.. In regards to autoimmune diseases - anemia of chronic disease is really common in those with rheumatoid arthritis. Inflammation in chronic inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and many other autoimmune diseases can affect blood production in a number of different ways. Many ...
Anaemia commonly occurs in cancer patients receiving chemotherapy, often necessitating blood transfusion. This multicentre study was designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of epoetin alpha in preventing the decline in haemoglobin (Hb) level, and to determine whether the transfusion requirement could be reduced, in patients receiving 4-6 cycles of primarily platinum-based combination cyclic chemotherapy for small cell lung cancer (SCLC). A total of 130 non-anaemic SCLC patients were randomized to receive no additional treatment (n = 44), epoetin alpha 150 IU kg(-1) subcutaneously (s.c.) three times a week (n = 42) or 300 IU kg(-1) s.c. three times a week (n = 44). Reductions in epoetin alpha dosage were made during the study if Hb level increased to ,15 g dl(-1). The mean weekly dosage was 335 and 612 IU kg(-1), respectively, in the two active treatment groups. Significantly fewer (P , 0.05) epoetin alpha-treated patients experienced anaemia (Hb , 10 g dl(-1)) during the course of ...
My sisters dog was recently diagnosed with Anemia. He was extremely sluggish and always sleeping. Unfortunately, dogs, like people, can easily develop anemia.

Find The Cause First. Is it possible that your dog has anemia? Symptoms to watch for are pale or white gums, signs of weakness and a fast pulse.. The first step in reversing this condition is to remove the cause. If your dog has fleas or intestinal ...
As individuals become older, the frequency of anemia increases. While the cause of anemia in many cases can be determined and corrected, in a number of individuals there is no correctable cause found and the patient must live with their anemia. This is known as idiopathic anemia, and can have serious consequences for the individual. Numerous studies have demonstrated that anemia is associated with loss of energy and stamina, causing individuals to decrease their activities, which adversely affects both their sense of well-being as well as their physical strength. Losses in these areas are associated with the clinical manifestations of frailty.. The current pilot study will examine whether or not administration of Epoetin Alfa, a hormone stimulating production of red blood cells, can reverse this type of anemia. We will examine the consequences of reversing the anemia in terms of physical strength and function, cardiovascular function and sense of well-being and mental function.. In this study, ...

1. INTRODUCTION. Anemia is one of the major nutritional deficiency health disorders, affecting significant proportion of population. Although it effects all age groups but it is most prevalent in pregnant women. Anemia is pathological deficiency in oxygen carrying capacity of blood measured in hemoglobin concentration, red blood cells numbers. Blood is mainly composed of two parts 1) Plasma, constituting 55% of blood and 2) White blood cells, red blood cells & platelets.. Common causes of anemia are dietary deficiencies, inherited genetic defects, side effects of medicine, chronic diseases, blood loss from injuries and internal bleeding, destruction of red blood cells or insufficient red blood cells production. Causes of anemia depend upon its severity the more severe the anemia is the more likely the chances of multiple reasons of anemia. Iron deficiency anemia is more common in pregnant because of increased need of iron for growing fetus. Women who start their pregnancy with low stored iron ...

Anemia occurs when there are not enough healthy red blood cells (RBCs) in the body. Mild anemia can cause your child to feel very tired or have less energy than normal. Severe anemia can cause many health problems.
Anemia is a common cause of qualitative or quantitative deficiency of hemoglobin. Hemoglobin is an iron rich protein that caries the oxygen from lungs to the other parts of body tissue. The hemoglobin deficiency is generally associated with the decrease in the number of red blood cells and hematocrit. Anemia causes low transfer of oxygen to the rest of the body. Anemia is easily preventable and treated however, there are mild or vague symptoms for detection of anemia due to which anemia mostly goes undetectable. Commonly, the symptoms such as weakness or fatigue due to exercise, malaise and sometimes poor concentration are observed in patients with anemia. In addition, as the anemia progresses patients suffer from shortness of breath due to exertion, increase in cardiac output leading to palpitations, sweeting and heart failure. Anemia is commonly found in patients with nutrition deficiency (poor iron or vitamin diet), chronic diseases (such as cancer, kidney diseases, diabetes, etc.), chronic ...
Anemia in dogs occurs when your dogs red blood cells are functioning improperly or simply arent able to oxygenate his cells. Anemia in dogs can have a number of different causes involving blood loss, red blood cell destruction, and inadequate red blood cell production. Injury, cancer, autoimmune disease, infectious disease, iron deficiency, and genetic defects can all be at the root of anemia in dogs. Thankfully, some causes of anemia in dogs can be cured with treatment. The most common symptom of anemia in dogs is pale gums. Anemic dogs may become weak and even collapse from time to time. Anemic dogs experience yellowing of the skin, weight loss, and vomiting. Blood may appear in the urine or feces. Anemic dogs may suffer from a loss of appetite and a distended abdomen. Hemolytic anemia in dogs is an autoimmune disease-related type of anemia. Hemolytic anemia in dogs can be a primary condition or can occur as a result of another condition. Female dogs are at higher risk for developing ...

For this purpose, a study employing the situation analysis method the followed with an experimental study to analyze the application of anemia management in work health program by a company with integrated institution agencies and the intervention model development of anemia prevalence reduction have been done at the X Company. Qualitative data were obtained through the in-depth interviews using open questionnaires from 10 informants; 4 from the X Company, 2 from the Department of Residential (population) affairs, and 4 from the Department of Health. The data were analyzed by using the content analysis method. The findings reveal that the X Company, together with the intersectional agencies such as the Department of Health and Department of Residential (population) Affairs, has not yet been seen to have applied the anemia management in its work ...
Approximately two-thirds of patients were screened for anaemia during the median 2 year follow-up period (68.1% CD, 65.3% UC). However, only 18.1% of the cohort underwent annual screening as recommended by ECCO and other guidelines. Of the 29.8% of patients with IBD with anaemia, iron deficiency was common (81.9%) among those with sufficient information to make the calculation.. No other study has examined the adherence to screening guidelines, so it is unknown if the results in this insured American population are generalisable to other settings. At least one-third of the screened cohort had anaemia, which is similar to published European studies on anaemia (24-33%) in IBD.4 ,20 ,21 ,23 Our findings were also similar to predictors of anaemia in the USA. A recently published study on anaemia in a US IBD cohort showed a statistically significant higher prevalence of anaemia in CD compared with UC (p value 0.001).33 This mirrors our findings and also findings from other European studies.13 ,20 ,21 ...
To study factors associated with anemia and its effect on survival in HIV-infected persons treated with modern combined antiretroviral therapy (cART), we characterized the prevalence of anemia in the Veterans Aging Cohort Study (VACS) and used a candidate gene approach to identify proinflammatory gene single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with anemia in HIV disease. The study comprised 1597 HIV+ and 865 HIV- VACS subjects with DNA, blood, and annotated clinical data available for analysis. Anemia was defined according to World Health Organization criteria (hemoglobin , 13 g/dL and , 12 g/dL in men and women, respectively). The prevalence of anemia in HIV+ and HIV- subjects was 23.1% and 12.9%, respectively. Independent of HIV status, anemia was present in 23.4% and 8% in blacks and whites, respectively. Analysis of our candidate genes revealed that the leptin -2548 G/A SNP was associated with anemia in HIV+, but not HIV-, patients, with the AA and AG genotypes significantly ...

In the present analysis including 967 community-dwelling elderly men and women no significant association between hemoglobin levels or anemia and falls could be found. Thus, the suggestion that anemia is an independent risk factor of falls in elderly people from the general population could not be supported by these results. However, we found an additive effect of anemia and disability on the occurrence of falls.. On the contrary to our study prior studies were mostly conducted in selected groups [15-17] in women only [32] or they used self-reported data regarding anemia status or information from chart reviews [33]. Furthermore, most of the former analyses were based on smaller study samples [15, 17, 18].. The group of Duh et al. employed a retrospective open-cohort design and analyzed data of 47,350 individuals regarding anemia and risk of injurious falls in community-dwelling elderly people. Results showed that anemia increased the risk of injurious falls by 1.47 times in multivariate ...
Microcytic Anemias are a categorization of anemias defined as those anemias which yield smaller-than-normal erythrocytes (i.e. Low Mean Corpuscular Volume or MCV). In general, a relatively limited set of pathophysiological processes yield microcytic anemias and thus measurement of the MCV can significantly narrow the possible differential diagnosis for a patients anemia ...

In recent years, the occurrence of anemia in patients with chronic heart failure (CHF) has received increasing attention. The prevalence of anemia reported in cohorts of patients or controlled randomized trials varies considerably (1,2). This variation is due not only to different recruitment profiles but also to the fact that there is no consensus on the definition of anemia in cardiology and, consequently, that different threshold hemoglobin or hematocrit levels have been used. However, general agreement exists that anemia is a frequent comorbidity and that it is associated with increased mortality or rates of hospital admissions and decreased quality of life or exercise tolerance, particularly when severe (3,4). There is also evidence suggesting that anemia is an evolving process and that new-onset anemia is common in CHF (5,6). The mechanism of anemia in CHF is a matter of debate and appears multifactorial.

Microcytic anemia is present when there is both an inadequate quantity of circulating hemoglobin, and the mean corpuscular volume of erythrocytes is below a threshold value (approximately 80 m3). It is possible to have a microcytosis without anemia, if there are enough small erythrocytes, containing enough hemoglobin, to circulate the necessary quantity. There are also anemias where the erythrocytes are of normal or large size. Iron deficiency anemia, which can have a variety of causes, is the most frequent reason for seeing microcytic anemia, although further studies will be required for a definitive diagnosis. ...
Anemia is mostly a manifestation of an underlying disease process rather than being a primary disease and it is one of the most frequent and difficult to be solved nosological problems in every day veterinary clinical practice. It is characterized by decreased packed cell volume (hematocrit) and/or decreased hemoglobin concentration. Clinical picture of anemia results from reduced oxygen delivery to tissues, which is insufficient to cover metabolic requirements.. Infectious agents are among the most frequent causes of anemia in cats including: 1. Hemoparasites, Haemobartonella, Cytauxzoon and Babesia spp and less often Ehrlichia and Leishmania species.. 2. Viruses and mainly FeLV and FIV and 3. A variety of inflammatory diseases. Hemoparasites cause regenerative anemia and consequently reversible, either of acute or chronic type. To the contrary both anemia due to viruses and to inflammatory state (Anemia of Inflammatory Disease-AID) are chronic and of the hypoplastic or aplastic form.. ANEMIA ...
Anaemia is a common problem in patients with renal failure, whether or not they are on dialysis. There is a continuum of declining renal function. In addition, the creatinine clearance at which dialysis is initiated varies widely between institutions and between studies. The term progressive renal insufficiency is therefore preferable to pre-dialysis. The adverse effects of renal anaemia on left ventricular mass become apparent early in the course of progressive renal insufficiency; 75% of patients starting dialysis already have left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). Correction of anaemia in patients with progressive renal insufficiency has been shown to improve physical function and anaemia-related symptoms, but no controlled studies have yet been conducted to determine its effects on LVH. Although one animal study generated some concern that epoetin may exacerbate a decline in renal function, there is no evidence from human studies for any such effect. Treatment of anaemia with epoetin in ...
Pre-operative anaemia may significantly affect patient outcomes. Anaemic patients are at increased risk of transfusion, mortality and major morbidity, in proportion to the severity of anaemia. There are three distinct reasons to consider the identification and management of pre-operative anaemia as important:. • Anaemia detected during surgical work-up may be secondary to previously undiagnosed disease, e.g. malignancy.. • To reduce the likelihood of having to resort to transfusion, thus limiting demand on donors and conserving blood supplies for those patients who need it most.. • To avoid unnecessarily exposing surgical patients to potential adverse effects of anaemia, transfusion or both.. ...
Based on the observations that Fc gamma receptors (FcγRs) are important contributory factors for infectious disease immuno-pathogenesis, the association between the FcγRIIA-131Arg/His, FcγRIIIA-176F/V and FcγRIIIB-NA1/NA2 polymorphisms and pediatric severe malaria anemia (SMA; Hb , 6.0 g/dL, any density parasitemia) was determined. We further assessed whether the carriage of different haplotypes of FcγRs were associated with parasite levels in P. falciparum infections. The current study demonstrated that the FcγRIIA-131Arg/ FcγRIIIA-176F/FcγRIIIBNA2 haplotype was associated with an increased susceptibility to SMA, while the FcγRIIA-131Arg/ FcγRIIIA-176F/ FcγRIIIBNA1 haplotype was associated with increased levels of circulating parasites during infection. However, there was no association between the individual genotypes and SMA in this pediatric population from western Kenya.. The FcγRs constitute a crucial arm of host immune defense against extracellular challenges by infectious ...
Anemia is the most common blood condition in the U.S., with about 3.5 million reported cases. Those most at risk are women and people with chronic diseases.

The main objective of this review was to identify gaps in the evidence for the prevention and treatment of maternal anaemia in pregnancy and up to 1 year postpartum, and to inform the research agenda. This topic remains a concern to health care professionals and public health specialists, as well as to women themselves, but the literature addressing this field is widely dispersed over a number of specialist publications/fields and has not been previously systematically collated.. One of the first striking gaps in the evidence base is in the management of maternal anaemia up to one year postpartum (Table 1). Secondly, across all identified systematic reviews, 25 included interventions for the prevention of anaemia, compared with only six reviews that included interventions for the treatment of anaemia. Thirdly, none of the reviews reported on the best methods of screening for anaemia. Finally, the majority of antenatal reviews evaluated the role of nutritional supplementation, including the use ...

You may be familiar with the term anemia because having anemia is common when you have chronic kidney disease (CKD). Anemia happens when you do not have enough red blood cells. In CKD, kidneys dont make enough of a hormone called erythropoietin (EPO), which your body needs to make red blood cells. Your body also needs iron to make red blood cells. When there is not enough EPO or iron, you make fewer red blood cells, and anemia develops. In kidney disease, anemia can happen even before the kidneys fail, and it is very common in people on dialysis.
If you have anemia, you should treat it immediately by taking nutritional supplements. Because if left untreated, anemia may increase heart disease risk.
Why this is important:- Evidence suggests that anaemia due to reduced erythropoiesis occurs even in early stages of chronic kidney disease (CKD). This may be undetected and is associated with adverse outcomes in older people. A better understanding of the haemoglobin (Hb) levels associated with adverse outcomes in older people would enable improved detection of anaemia of CKD and reduction of risk ...
Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anemia in pregnancy. Pregnant women with anemia are, in general, exclusively treated with iron supplementation. We observed that several pregnant women with anemia who were nonresponsive to iron supplementation also had vitamin B6 deficiency, and that anemia in these cases improved with the administration of vitamin B6. Our prospective study in healthy pregnant women showed that blood levels of iron, ferritin and vitamin B6, in particular, fell to the lower limit of the nonpregnant reference range by the third trimester. We conclude that it is important to take into account the deficiency of vitamin B6 besides iron in the evaluation of anemia during pregnancy.European Journal of Clinical Nutrition advance online publication, 18 November 2009; doi:10.1038/ejcn.2009.125.

There are two classifications of anemia. In the first, the body loses blood faster than it can be regenerated but your pet is still able to produce new red blood cells in its bone marrow. In the second, your dog has lost the ability to make new red blood cells in the bone marrow. There are so many different types and causes of anemia. The categories of anemia can be caused by trauma, cancer, immune-mediated disease, which is a disease in which the body attacks its own cells or organs, infectious disease, toxins, genetic defects, inflammatory disease, iron deficiency, drug reactions, kidney failure, and generalized chronic illness. Blood loss caused by trauma or injury, parasites like fleas, ticks and worms, and diseases that prevent the blood from clotting. Common areas for bleeding include the digestive tract and if your dog is suffering from hookworm or heartworm. There is no gender or age predisposition for anemia. Most anemic dogs act weak or tired. Skin may appear to be pale with yellow ...

Anemia as known in American English or anaemia as known in Commonwealth English literally means without blood. It is the lack of red blood cells or hemoglobin. This condition results in a reduced ability of blood to transfer oxygen to the tissues. It is a condition often caused by a lack of iron in the diet, making the blood weak in its capability to transfer oxygen across the body. Anemia is due the iron deficiency. A decrease in the number of red blood cells or the total level of haemoglobin (see below). This makes it harder for the blood to get oxygen to the rest of the body, causing symptoms such as weakness, tiredness or shortness of breath. Anaemia in myeloma can be caused by the myeloma cells in the bone marrow interfering with red blood cell production, or as a side effect of chemotherapy. Other causes are malaria, hookworm, HIV and other infections.. ...

Anemia is strictly defined as a decrease in red blood cell (RBC) mass. The function of the RBC is to deliver oxygen from the lungs to the tissues and carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs. This is accomplished by using hemoglobin (Hb), a tetramer protein composed of heme and globin. Anemia impairs the bodys ability for gas exchange by decreasing the number of RBCs transporting oxygen and carbon dioxide. When a person is anemic, their heart has to work harder to pump the quantity of blood needed to get adequate oxygen around their body. During heavy exercise, the cells may not be able to carry enough oxygen to meet the bodys needs and the person can become exhausted. Anemia isnt a disease in itself, but a result of a malfunction somewhere in the body. This blood condition is common, particularly in females. In India, more than 10 million cases of anemia are detected every year.. Anemia, like a fever, is a sign that requires investigation to determine the underlying etiology.. Basically, ...
Previous studies of anemia epidemiology have been geographically limited with little detail about severity or etiology.

I would just like to gather thoughts or opinions about my friends aunt who has been in and out of the hospital recently. I think she has been in the hospital 6 times for the last 3-4 months and had blood transfusion everytime as HB is low. The only diagnosis that her doctors gave them was severe anemia. There is no active bleeding, had undergone endoscopy, erosions were noted but no other significant findings. What do you think would cause the Aneamia? It is tiring for her aunts part to keep going in and out, and Im sure you can imagine the stress they are experiencing. She will be due for a colonoscopy in few days as well but appears to be getting weaker and refusing to eat her food lately. :(
Anemia is a condition that develops when your blood does not have a sufficient number of healthy red blood cells or hemoglobin. Red blood cells are responsible for transporting oxygen throughout the body, so a shortage of red blood cells means that cells in your body are not getting the oxygen they need. Some common symptoms of anemia are fatigue, shortness of breath, racing heart and paleness.. One of the many symptoms and warning signs of colon cancer is anemia. Tumors can bleed because they have their own fragile network of blood vessels, and you may feel fatigued and weak because the tumor is bleeding internally. Slow blood loss is characteristic of tumors located in the right colon where it is spacious and the tumor can expand and go undetected. Although signs of anemia are present, you may not see blood in your stool because the blood dries before it leaves the colon. The left colon is much more constricted than the right colon, so a tumor is more likely to cause an obstruction in the ...

As each persons individual medical profile and diagnosis is different, so is his or her reaction to treatment. Side effects may be severe, mild, or absent. Be sure to discuss with your cancer care team possible side effects of treatment before the treatment begins.. Red blood cells (RBCs) carry oxygen to other cells throughout your body. Chemotherapy can damage your bodys ability to make RBCs, so body tissues do not get enough oxygen, a condition called anemia. People who have anemia may feel very weak or tired, dizzy, faint, or short of breath, or may feel that their hearts are beating very fast. Consult your doctor immediately if you experience any of these symptoms.. You will be given frequent tests to measure your hemoglobin and hematocrit during your therapy. These numbers are used to watch for anemia. If you have too few red blood cells, you may need a blood transfusion or medications, such as epoetin or darbepoetin, to raise the number of red blood cells in your body. These medicines ...

Objectives To propose a feasible suggestion to reduce the high prevalence of anaemia in middle-aged and elderly women by investigating risk factors, particularly nutritional factors, and analysing the effect on anaemia in three different rural areas of China. to 0.87)) in univariate analysis. Multivariate analysis showed that body mass index, experience of food shortage, total protein and albumin were independently related to 19741-14-1 manufacture anaemia. Conclusions Among middle-aged and elderly women in rural China, the nutrition status of anaemic cases is much below that of controls. Lower body mass index and a greater experience of food shortage are closely related to anaemia. Improving the blood protein status by consuming protein-sufficient foods such as soy food is usually a feasible approach for elderly anaemic women. Further research is needed on 19741-14-1 manufacture the effect of chronic inflammation and infectious disease on anaemia in elderly women in rural China. Keywords: ...
Most symptoms of anemia are a result of the decrease of oxygen in the cells or "hypoxia." Because red blood cells, as hemoglobin, carry oxygen, a decreased production or number of these cells result in "hypoxia." Many of the symptoms will not be present with mild anemia, as the body can often compensate for gradual changes in hemoglobin.. The following are the most common symptoms for anemia. However, each child may experience symptoms differently. The symptoms may include, but are not limited to:. ...

Anemia in Adolescents. To understand what is anemia one should begin with breathing. The oxygen that is inhaled simply doesnt stop in lungs. It circulates though out the body and fuels the brains also. Oxygen travels to all parts of the body though bloodstream and to be precise in the RBCs I.e. red blood cells. Now, these RBCs are produced in the bone marrow of the body and they serve as boats carrying oxygen in the bloodstream. RBCs have something called hemoglobin, a protein which holds oxygen. To make adequate hemoglobin body requires iron in plenty. The iron is supplied by the foods that we take along with other nutrients. When these RBCs are fewer in number than what is needed anemia occurs in the body. There can be 3 primary reasons: RBCs are lost due to some reason, the production of RBCs is slower than what is needed and lastly the body is destroying the RBCs. Different types of anemia are linked to at least one of these causes.. The bone marrow replaces small amounts of blood is lost ...
BACKGROUND The prevalence of anemia in hospitalized seniors has been linked to poor functional outcomes, increased mortality, and longer hospital stays, and has been associated with advancing age, male sex, and cognitive impairment. Despite the potential for complications, anemia often is undiagnosed and/or untreated in seniors. OBJECTIVES Examine (a) the distribution of anemia diagnosis and treatment in patients in a rehabilitation hospital, and (b) patients cognitive and functional outcomes. DESIGN Retrospective chart review of medical records of 132 patients. MEASUREMENTS The presence and type of anemia were determined based on the World Health Organization criteria for adults and Smiths algorithm, respectively. The Mini-Mental State Exam (MMSE) was used to measure cognitive status. Functional impairment was assessed using the Functional Independence Measure (FIM). RESULTS The mean age of the sample was 82.20 years, with 68% being female, the mean MMSE and FIM scores were 23.95 (SD = 4.3)
DEAR DR. ROACH: Im 84 and was diagnosed in late 2012 with anemia (cause undetermined). Fatigue and dizziness are my major symptoms, and my bone marrow biopsy was negative for cancer. In the past four or five months, I have had complete blood tests weekly, and get a Procrit injection if my hemoglobin level is under 11. It has been steady at 8-9 g/dl.. An anniversary martini the night before a blood test dropped my hemoglobin from 9.2 the previous week to 7.9, and slowly it has increased to 8.5, when I abstained from alcohol in past four weeks. I had colon cancer surgery in 2000, with nine months of chemotherapy for optimum recovery. I am healthy, otherwise. Is anemia a common health problem at my age? Can the liver be involved and affected by alcohol? What can I do to increase my red blood levels? How long can I keep taking Procrit? -- I.M..

There are three main reasons people become anemic: blood loss, a reduction in the bodys ability to produce new red blood cells, or an illness that leads to increased destruction of red blood cells.. Blood loss. When the amount of blood lost is greater than your bodys ability to replace the lost red blood cells, you can become anemic. Women who experience heavy menstrual periods, for example, and people who have internal bleeding due to ulcers or other digestive problems are at the greatest risk for anemia. Sometimes this type of blood loss is silent and unrecognized until anemia shows up on a blood test. External bleeding from surgery or trauma also can cause anemia.. Low production of red blood cells. Even if youre not bleeding, old red blood cells constantly need to be replaced with new ones.. A number of factors can cause your body to produce too few red blood cells, or red blood cells lacking in sufficient hemoglobin.. These include: ...

Vitamins linked to vitamin deficiency anemia include folate, vitamin B-12 and vitamin C. Vitamin deficiency anemia can occur if you dont eat enough folate, vitamin B-12 or vitamin C. Or vitamin deficiency anemia can occur if your body has trouble absorbing or processing these vitamins.. Not all anemias are caused by a vitamin deficiency. Other causes include iron deficiency and certain blood diseases. Thats why its important to have your doctor diagnose and treat your anemia. Vitamin deficiency anemia can usually be corrected with vitamin supplements and changes to your diet.. Vitamin deficiency anemia occurs when your body doesnt have enough of the vitamins needed to produce adequate numbers of healthy red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen from your lungs throughout your body. If your diet is lacking in certain vitamins, vitamin ...
The prevalence of iron deficiency anemia is 2 percent in adult men, 9 to 12 percent in non-Hispanic white women, and nearly 20 percent in black and Mexican-American women. Nine percent of patients older than 65 years with iron deficiency anemia have a gastrointestinal cancer when evaluated. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force currently recommends screening for iron deficiency anemia in pregnant women but not in other groups. Routine iron supplementation is recommended for high-risk infants six to 12 months of age. Iron deficiency anemia is classically described as a microcytic anemia. The differential diagnosis includes thalassemia, sideroblastic anemias, some types of anemia of chronic disease, and lead poisoning. Serum ferritin is the preferred initial diagnostic test. Total iron-binding capacity, transferrin saturation, serum iron, and serum transferrin receptor levels may be helpful if the ferritin level is between 46 and 99 ng per mL (46 and 99 mcg per L); bone marrow biopsy may be necessary in
Haemolytic anaemia is a form of anaemia caused by haemolysis. It may be either hereditary or acquired. Haemolytic anaemia that is hereditary may be due to defects in erythrocyte production, in hemoglobin production, or in erythrocyte metabolism. Acquired haemolytic anemia, in turn, may be due to immune related factors. Autoimmune haemolytic anaemia is an example of an acquired form of haemolytic anaemia. It occurs when the antibodies act against own red blood cells. These antibodies lyse the red blood cells. Thus, in a person with a severe automimmune haemolytic anaemia, the lifespan of red blood cells could be reduced into just few days from the normal 100-120 days.1 Autoimmune haemolytic anaemia may either be warm or cold depending on the characteristics of the autoantibodies involved. Warm (antibody) autoimmune haemolytic anaemia is more common than cold (antibody) autoimmune haemolytic anaemia. 2 ...
Treatment of Sickle cell anemia is an inherited form of anemia - a condition in which there arent enough healthy red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout your body, Under normal circumstances, your red blood cells are flexible and round, and they move easily through your blood vessels to carry oxygen to all parts of your body. In people with sickle cell anemia, the red blood cells become rigid and sticky and are shaped like sickles or crescent moons, These irregular-shaped blood cells die prematurely, resulting in a chronic shortage of red blood cells. Plus, they can get stuck when traveling through small blood vessels, which can slow or block blood flow and oxygen to certain parts of the body. This produces pain and can lead to the serious complications of sickle cell anemia, Theres no cure for most people with sickle cell anemia. However, treatments can relieve pain and prevent further problems associated with sickle cell anemia, Sickle Cell Anemia, Sickle Cell Disease, Sickle Cell Anemia Symptoms

7.0 g/dl). Thus, this sign is reasonably predictive when present, but not helpful when absent, as only one-third to one-half of children who are anemic (depending on severity) will show pallor. Because iron-deficiency anemia tends to develop slowly, adaptation occurs to the systemic effects that anemia causes, and the disease often goes unrecognized for some time. In severe cases, dyspnea can occur. Pica may also develop; pagophagia has been suggested to be "the most specific for iron deficiency." Other possible symptoms and signs of iron-deficiency anemia include: Irritability Angina Palpitations Breathlessness Tingling, numbness, or burning sensations Glossitis (inflammation or infection of the tongue) Angular cheilitis (inflammatory lesions at the mouths corners) Koilonychia (spoon-shaped nails) or nails that are brittle Poor appetite Dysphagia due to formation of esophageal webs (Plummer-Vinson syndrome) Restless legs syndrome Iron-deficiency anemia is associated with poor neurological ...
