Anemia, Hypochromic: Anemia characterized by a decrease in the ratio of the weight of hemoglobin to the volume of the erythrocyte, i.e., the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration is less than normal. The individual cells contain less hemoglobin than they could have under optimal conditions. Hypochromic anemia may be caused by iron deficiency from a low iron intake, diminished iron absorption, or excessive iron loss. It can also be caused by infections or other diseases, therapeutic drugs, lead poisoning, and other conditions. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Miale, Laboratory Medicine: Hematology, 6th ed, p393)Anemia: A reduction in the number of circulating ERYTHROCYTES or in the quantity of HEMOGLOBIN.Erythrocyte Count: The number of RED BLOOD CELLS per unit volume in a sample of venous BLOOD.Iron: A metallic element with atomic symbol Fe, atomic number 26, and atomic weight 55.85. It is an essential constituent of HEMOGLOBINS; CYTOCHROMES; and IRON-BINDING PROTEINS. It plays a role in cellular redox reactions and in the transport of OXYGEN.alpha-Globins: Members of the alpha-globin family. In humans, they are encoded in a gene cluster on CHROMOSOME 16. They include zeta-globin and alpha-globin. There are also pseudogenes of zeta (theta-zeta) and alpha (theta-alpha) in the cluster. Adult HEMOGLOBIN is comprised of 2 alpha-globin chains and 2 beta-globin chains.Anemia, Refractory: A severe sometimes chronic anemia, usually macrocytic in type, that does not respond to ordinary antianemic therapy.Hemoglobins: The oxygen-carrying proteins of ERYTHROCYTES. They are found in all vertebrates and some invertebrates. The number of globin subunits in the hemoglobin quaternary structure differs between species. Structures range from monomeric to a variety of multimeric arrangements.Anemia, Sideroblastic: Anemia characterized by the presence of erythroblasts containing excessive deposits of iron in the marrow.alpha-Thalassemia: A disorder characterized by reduced synthesis of the alpha chains of hemoglobin. The severity of this condition can vary from mild anemia to death, depending on the number of genes deleted.Erythropoietin: Glycoprotein hormone, secreted chiefly by the KIDNEY in the adult and the LIVER in the FETUS, that acts on erythroid stem cells of the BONE MARROW to stimulate proliferation and differentiation.Anemia, Iron-Deficiency: Anemia characterized by decreased or absent iron stores, low serum iron concentration, low transferrin saturation, and low hemoglobin concentration or hematocrit value. The erythrocytes are hypochromic and microcytic and the iron binding capacity is increased.Erythrocyte Indices: ERYTHROCYTE size and HEMOGLOBIN content or concentration, usually derived from ERYTHROCYTE COUNT; BLOOD hemoglobin concentration; and HEMATOCRIT. The indices include the mean corpuscular volume (MCV), the mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH), and the mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC).Anemia, Aplastic: A form of anemia in which the bone marrow fails to produce adequate numbers of peripheral blood elements.Ferritins: Iron-containing proteins that are widely distributed in animals, plants, and microorganisms. Their major function is to store IRON in a nontoxic bioavailable form. Each ferritin molecule consists of ferric iron in a hollow protein shell (APOFERRITINS) made of 24 subunits of various sequences depending on the species and tissue types.beta-Thalassemia: A disorder characterized by reduced synthesis of the beta chains of hemoglobin. There is retardation of hemoglobin A synthesis in the heterozygous form (thalassemia minor), which is asymptomatic, while in the homozygous form (thalassemia major, Cooley's anemia, Mediterranean anemia, erythroblastic anemia), which can result in severe complications and even death, hemoglobin A synthesis is absent.Erythropoiesis: The production of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES). In humans, erythrocytes are produced by the YOLK SAC in the first trimester; by the liver in the second trimester; by the BONE MARROW in the third trimester and after birth. In normal individuals, the erythrocyte count in the peripheral blood remains relatively constant implying a balance between the rate of erythrocyte production and rate of destruction.Anemia, Hemolytic: A condition of inadequate circulating red blood cells (ANEMIA) or insufficient HEMOGLOBIN due to premature destruction of red blood cells (ERYTHROCYTES).Protoporphyrins: Porphyrins with four methyl, two vinyl, and two propionic acid side chains attached to the pyrrole rings. Protoporphyrin IX occurs in hemoglobin, myoglobin, and most of the cytochromes.Transferrin: An iron-binding beta1-globulin that is synthesized in the LIVER and secreted into the blood. It plays a central role in the transport of IRON throughout the circulation. A variety of transferrin isoforms exist in humans, including some that are considered markers for specific disease states.Reticulocytes: Immature ERYTHROCYTES. In humans, these are ERYTHROID CELLS that have just undergone extrusion of their CELL NUCLEUS. They still contain some organelles that gradually decrease in number as the cells mature. RIBOSOMES are last to disappear. Certain staining techniques cause components of the ribosomes to precipitate into characteristic "reticulum" (not the same as the ENDOPLASMIC RETICULUM), hence the name reticulocytes.Erythrocytes, Abnormal: Oxygen-carrying RED BLOOD CELLS in mammalian blood that are abnormal in structure or function.Fanconi Anemia: Congenital disorder affecting all bone marrow elements, resulting in ANEMIA; LEUKOPENIA; and THROMBOPENIA, and associated with cardiac, renal, and limb malformations as well as dermal pigmentary changes. Spontaneous CHROMOSOME BREAKAGE is a feature of this disease along with predisposition to LEUKEMIA. There are at least 7 complementation groups in Fanconi anemia: FANCA, FANCB, FANCC, FANCD1, FANCD2, FANCE, FANCF, FANCG, and FANCL.

There are several genetic types with clinical pictures ranging from barely detectable hematologic abnormality to severe and fatal anemia.Hemoglobin H: An abnormal hemoglobin composed of four beta chains. It is caused by the reduced synthesis of the alpha chain. This abnormality results in ALPHA-THALASSEMIA.Erythrocytes: Red blood cells. Mature erythrocytes are non-nucleated, biconcave disks containing HEMOGLOBIN whose function is to transport OXYGEN.Anemia, Hemolytic, Autoimmune: Acquired hemolytic anemia due to the presence of AUTOANTIBODIES which agglutinate or lyse the patient's own RED BLOOD CELLS.Hepcidins: Forms of hepcidin, a cationic amphipathic peptide synthesized in the liver as a prepropeptide which is first processed into prohepcidin and then into the biologically active hepcidin forms, including in human the 20-, 22-, and 25-amino acid residue peptide forms. Hepcidin acts as a homeostatic regulators of iron metabolism and also possesses antimicrobial activity.Receptors, Transferrin: Membrane glycoproteins found in high concentrations on iron-utilizing cells. They specifically bind iron-bearing transferrin, are endocytosed with its ligand and then returned to the cell surface where transferrin without its iron is released.Anemia, Macrocytic: Anemia characterized by larger than normal erythrocytes, increased mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and increased mean corpuscular hemoglobin (MCH).Anemia, Pernicious: A megaloblastic anemia occurring in children but more commonly in later life, characterized by histamine-fast achlorhydria, in which the laboratory and clinical manifestations are based on malabsorption of vitamin B 12 due to a failure of the gastric mucosa to secrete adequate and potent intrinsic factor.

The effect of chelating agents on iron mobilization in Chang cell cultures. (1/490)

The investigation of chelating agents with potential therapeutic value in patients with transfusional iron overload has been facilitated by the use of Chang cell cultures. These cells have been incubated with [59Fe]transferrin for 22 hr, following which most of the intracellular radioiron is found in the cytosol, distributed between a ferritin and a nonferritin form. Iron release from the cells depends on transferrin saturation in the medium, but when transferrin is 100% saturated, which normally does not allow iron release, desferrioxamine, 2,3-dihydroxybenzoic acid, rhodotorulic acid, cholythydroxamic acid, and tropolone all promote the mobilization of ferritin iron and its release from cells. They are effective to an approximately equal degree. The incubation of [59Fe]transferrin with tropolone in vitro at a molar ratio of 1:500 results in the transfer of most of the labeled iron to the chelator, reflecting the exceptionally high binding constant of this compound. How far these phenomena relate to therapeutic potentially remains to be seen.  (+info)

Evidence for and consequences of chronic heme deficiency in Belgrade rat reticulocytes. (2/490)

The Belgrade rat has a microcytic, hypochromic anemia inherited as an autosomal recessive trait (gene symbol b). Transferrin-dependent iron uptake is defective because of a mutation in Nramp2 (now DMT1, also called DCT1), the protein responsible for endosomal iron efflux. Hence, Belgrade reticulocytes are iron deficient. We show that a chromatographic method is able to measure the amount of 'free' heme in reticulocytes. Most of the 'free' heme is the result of biosynthesis. Succinylacetone, an inhibitor of heme synthesis, decreases the level of 'free' heme and cycloheximide, an inhibitor of globin synthesis, increases the 'free' heme level. In a pulse-chase experiment with 59Fe-transferrin, the 'free' heme pool behaves as an intermediate, with a half-life of just over 2 h. Belgrade reticulocytes contain about 40% as much 'free' heme as do heterozygous or homozygous reticulocytes. This deficiency of 'free' heme slows initiation of translation in Belgrade reticulocytes by increasing the level of an inhibitor of initiation. Thus the Belgrade rat makes a whole animal model available with chronic heme deficiency.  (+info)

Hypochromic red cells and reticulocyte haemglobin content as markers of iron-deficient erythropoiesis in patients undergoing chronic haemodialysis. (3/490)

BACKGROUND: In patients on chronic haemodialysis, because of a non-specific increase in serum ferritin, iron deficiency may be overlooked leading to failure of erythropoietin treatment. A reticulocyte haemglobin content < 26 pg and a percentage of hypochromic red cells > 2.5 have been proposed as markers of iron-deficient erythropoiesis in such subjects, but it is unclear which parameter is superior. METHODS: We measured haematocrit, reticulocyte haemglobin content, ferritin and the percentage of hypochromic red cells over 10-150 days in 36 chronic haemodialysis patients in a university hospital. Transferrin saturation was also measured in a subset of 25 patients; iron deficiency was defined as a transferrin saturation < 15%. RESULTS: The diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of a reticulocyte haemoglobin content < 26 pg in detecting iron deficiency were 100% and 73% respectively, compared with 91% and 54% for a percentage of hypochromic red cells > 2.5. Paradoxical reticulocyte haemglobin concentrations occurred on follow-up in five patients receiving 4000 U erythropoietin per haemodialysis (HD). In three patients, reticulocyte haemglobin content exceeded 26 pg despite a persistent lack of iron. In a fourth, iron gluconate (62.5 mg i.v./HD) increased transferrin saturation to 27% and reduced the percentage of hypochromic red cells from 12 to 4, while reticulocyte haemglobin remained > 30 pg. In the final patient, iron gluconate increased transferrin saturation from 8 to 30% and reduced the percentage of hypochromic red cells from 40 to below 5, but reticulocyte haemglobin content remained < or = 26 pg throughout. CONCLUSIONS: The reticulocyte haemglobin content is superior to the percentage of hypochromic red cells in detecting iron deficiency in haemodialysis patients.  (+info)

The contribution of alpha+-thalassaemia to anaemia in a Nigerian population exposed to intense malaria transmission. (4/490)

The proportion to which alpha-thalassaemia contributes to anaemia in Africa is not well recognized. In an area of intense malaria transmission in South-West Nigeria, haematological parameters of alpha-thalassaemia were examined in 494 children and 119 adults. The -alpha3.7 type of alpha+-thalassaemia was observed at a gene frequency of 0.27. Nine and 36.5% of individuals were homozygous and heterozygous, respectively. P.falciparum-infection was present in 78% of children and in 39% of adults. The alpha-globin genotypes did not correlate with the prevalence of P. falciparum-infection. alpha+-thalassaemic individuals had significantly lower mean values of haemoglobin, mean corpuscular volume, and mean corpuscular haemoglobin than non-thalassaemic subjects. Anaemia was seen in 54. 7% of children with a normal alpha-globin genotype, in 69.9% of heterozygous (odds ratio: 1.99, 95% confidence interval: 1.32-3.00, P = 0.001), and in 88.4% of homozygous alpha+-thalassaemic children (odds ratio: 7.72, 95% confidence interval: 2.85-20.90, P = 0.0001). The findings show that alpha+-thalassaemia contributes essentially to mild anaemia, microcytosis, and hypochromia in Nigeria.  (+info)

Fe(III)-EDTA complex as iron fortification. Further studies. (5/490)

The data presented confirm the advantages of Fe(III)-EDTA as a salt for iron fortification. This iron compound exchanges completely with intrinsic wheat iron in the lumen of the gut. The iron absorption data from this salt tested with six different food vehicles compared with the absorption of ferrous sulfate administered with the same vehicles indicate that while the mean absorption from ferrous sulfate varies from 2 to 30% according to the food vehicle mixed with the salt, the absorption from Fe(III)-EDTA remains practically the same. Apparently, the iron absorption from Fe(III)-EDTA complex is slightly or not affected by the presence of vegetable foods or milk. All these data suggest that only a small amount of iron from this salt, about 10 mg/day, would be necessary to prevent iron deficiency anemia even in those populations relying for their subsistence on vegetable food only.  (+info)

Cardiorespiratory, hematological and physical performance responses of anemic subjects to iron treatment. (7/490)

Twenty-nine adult iron-deficient anemis subjects (13 men and 16 women) with hemoglobin levels of 4.0 to 12.0 g/100 ml blood were divided into either an iron treatment or placebo group. Hematological, cardiorespiratory and performance data were collected before, during, and after treatment and compared with data from a control group of subjects (4 men and 6 women) from the same socioeconomic population. Hemoglobin levels for the iron treatment group improved from 7.7 to 12.4 g for the women and from 7.1 to 14.0 g for the men. Values for the control group were 13.9 g and 14.3 g for the women and men, respectively. The placebo group showed virtually no change over the 80-day period (8.1-8.4 g for women and 7.7-7.4 g for men). Peak exercise heart rates (5 min, 40-cm step test) were significantly reduced after treatment from 155 to 113 for the iron treatment men and 152 to 123 for the women compared with the placebo group which showed no changes. Values for the control group were 119 and 142 for the men and women, respectively. In response to the exercise test, no difference in oxygen consumption was found between the iron treatment and placebo group although 15% more O2 was delivered per pulse in the iron treatment group. Blood lactates were significantly highein the placebo than iron treatment group both at rest, 1.18 versus 0.64 mmole/liter, and 1 min after exercise, 5.30 versus 2.68 mmoles/liter. No changes in handgrip or shoulder adductor strength were observed following treatment. These results clearly support the concept that performance requiring high oxygen delivery is significantly affected by hemoglobin levels.  (+info)

Anemia in the elderly. (8/490)

Anemia should not be accepted as an inevitable consequence of aging. A cause is found in approximately 80 percent of elderly patients. The most common causes of anemia in the elderly are chronic disease and iron deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency, folate deficiency, gastrointestinal bleeding and myelodysplastic syndrome are among other causes of anemia in the elderly. Serum ferritin is the most useful test to differentiate iron deficiency anemia from anemia of chronic disease. Not all cases of vitamin B12 deficiency can be identified by low serum levels. The serum methylmalonic acid level may be useful for diagnosis of vitamin B12 deficiency. Vitamin B12 deficiency is effectively treated with oral vitamin B12 supplementation. Folate deficiency is treated with 1 mg of folic acid daily.  (+info)

Hypochromic anemia in adults is generally considered as secondary to some other disease process, such as hemorrhage, malignancy, infection, or nephritis. This view has prevailed so long that "hypochromic anemia" and "secondary anemia" are often used as synonymous terms. In recent years, however, a type of hypochromic anemia has been recognized as an independent disease. The condition may be referred to as primary hypochromic anemia. It occurs almost exclusively in women. Achlorhydria is nearly always present. One of the most characteristic features of the disease is a rapid, almost dramatic, response to iron therapy in massive doses. Its recognition is ...
Hypochromic anemia is a generic term for any type of anemia in which the red blood cells (erythrocytes) are paler than normal. (Hypo- refers to less, and chromic means color.) A normal red blood cell will have an area of pallor in the center of it; it is biconcave disk shaped. In hypochromic cells, this area of central pallor is increased. This decrease in redness is due to a disproportionate reduction of red cell hemoglobin (the pigment that imparts the red color) in proportion to the volume of the cell. Clinically the color can be evaluated by the Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) or Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin Concentration (MCHC). The MCHC is considered the better parameter of the two as it adjusts for effect the size of the cell has on its color. Hypochromia is clinically defined as below the normal MHC reference range of 27-33 picograms/cell in adults or below the normal MCHC reference range of 33-36 g/dL in adults. Red blood cells will also be small (microcytic), leading to substantial ...
and monitored for changes in the blood profile using a haematological analyser. A chronic infection lasting between 48 and 112 days was observed. Microcytic hypochromic anaemia, which was characterized by a decline in packed cell volume (PCV), red blood cell (RBC) numbers, mean corpuscular volume (MCV) and mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration (MCH) developed at an early stage, and persisted throughout the infection. The mean platelet counts declined significantly from 3 x 105/μl (day 0 post infection) to 6.8 x 104/μl (day 7 post infection) and remained low in all the animals. However, the mean platelets volume rose during the course of the infection. An initial decline in total white blood cell (WBC) counts occurred between day 0 and 7 (3.1 x 106/μl) and remained low up to day 35 post infection (3.5 x 106/μl). This was followed by an increase in WBC counts, principally associated with increased lymphocyte numbers. It is concluded that microcytic hypochromic anaemia, thrombocytopaenia ...
A 10-year-old male child came to our out-patient department (OPD) for evaluation of refractory anemia. He had received adequate dietary and oral iron supplementation but still required multiple blood transfusions. He had no anorexia, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal cramps or bleeding from any site. There was no family history of blood transfusions. Laboratory investigations showed hemoglobin of 6.4 gm/dl, total leucocyte count 7600 cells/cumm, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) 18 mm/hr at end of 1 hour, packed cell volume 22%, mean corpuscular volume 54.1fL, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration (MCHC) 25.4gm/dL, Red blood cell distribution width (RDW) 17.2%, reticulocyte count 1.13%, serum ferritin 2.6ng/dL, serum iron 15ug/dL and Total Iron Binding Capacity (TIBC) 570 mcg/dL suggestive of iron deficiency anemia (IDA).

Vulpe C.D., Kuo Y.M., Murphy T.L., Cowley L., Askwith C., Libina N., Gitschier J., Anderson G.J.. Iron is essential for many cellular functions; consequently, disturbances of iron homeostasis, leading to either iron deficiency or iron overload, can have significant clinical consequences. Despite the clinical prevalence of these disorders, the mechanism by which dietary iron is absorbed into the body is poorly understood. We have identified a key component in intestinal iron transport by study of the sex-linked anaemia (sla) mouse, which has a block in intestinal iron transport. Mice carrying the sla mutation develop moderate to severe microcytic hypochromic anaemia. Although these mice take up iron from the intestinal lumen into mature epithelial cells normally, the subsequent exit of iron into the circulation is diminished. As a result, iron accumulates in enterocytes and is lost during turnover of the intestinal epithelium. Biochemical studies have failed to identify the underlying difference ...
Beta-thalassemia (β-thalassemia) is characterized by reduced synthesis of the haemoglobin subunit beta (haemoglobin beta chain) that results in microcytic hypochromic anaemia, an abnormal peripheral blood smear with nucleated red blood cells, and reduced amounts of haemoglobin A (HbA) on haemoglobin analysis. Individuals with thalassemia major have severe anaemia and hepatosplenomegaly; they usually come to medical attention within the first two years of life. Without treatment, affected children have severe failure to thrive and shortened life expectancy. Treatment with a regular transfusion program and chelation therapy, aimed at reducing transfusion iron overload, allows for normal growth and development and may improve the overall prognosis. Individuals with thalassemia intermedia present later and have milder anaemia that only rarely requires transfusion. [1] These individuals are at risk for iron overload secondary to increased intestinal absorption of iron as a result of ineffective ...
Tfr1 has long been used as a marker of red blood cells and is believed to play an essential role in erythropoiesis; however, its role in HSPC is poorly understood. Here, we generated and characterized a mouse model in which Tfr1 expression was deleted specifically in HSC and observed profoundly impaired BM function and defects in multiple cell lineages. These defects, which cause cKO offspring to die within one week of age, indicate that Tfr1 plays an essential role in hematopoiesis.. Specifically, our HSC-specific Tfr1-deficient mouse model allowed us to systematically dissect the role of Tfr1 in the development of erythrocytes, granulocytes, thrombocytes, and lymphocytes. Our findings of microcytic hypochromic anemia in neonatal cKO pups and progressive erythropenia in FL of cKO embryos reveal that Tfr1 is required for erythropoiesis at an early stage, as loss of Tfr1 primarily blocked the differentiation of erythroblast precursors (e.g. proerythroblasts, polychromatophilic erythroblasts), ...
A 77 year old man was admitted to our department because of enterorrhagia and progressive anaemia. On physical examination he was pale, dyspnoeic, and an aortic systodiastolic murmur (Levine grade 3) was heard. Laboratory examination showed microcytic hypochromic anaemia (haemoglobin 62 g/l). An echocardiogram showed severe left ventricular hypertrophy and a calcific aortic valve with moderate-severe stenoinsufficiency. Upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, colonoscopy, computed tomography of the abdomen and pelvis, and arteriography of gastrointestinal vessels did not disclose the origin of the bleeding. No antibiotic prophylaxis was performed before procedures. Fifteen days after colonoscopy, the patient became febrile (body temperature up to 40.1°C). A repeat echocardiogram showed two small and mobile vegetations on the right and non-coronary aortic cusps, and transoesophageal echocardiogram confirmed this finding. Three blood specimens for culture were drawn and within seven days all cultures ...

Missense mutations in ferroportin1 (fpn1), an intestinal and macrophage iron exporter, have been identified between transmembrane helices 3 and 4 in the zebrafish anemia mutant weissherbst (weh(Tp85c-/-)) and in patients with type 4 hemochromatosis. To explore the effects of fpn1 mutation on blood development and iron homeostasis in the adult zebrafish, weh(Tp85c-/-) zebrafish were rescued by injection with iron dextran and studied in comparison with injected and uninjected WT zebrafish and heterozygotes. Although iron deposition was observed in all iron-injected fish, only weh(Tp85c-/-) zebrafish exhibited iron accumulation in the intestinal epithelium compatible with a block in iron export. Iron injections initially reversed the anemia. However, 8 months after iron injections were discontinued, weh(Tp85c-/-) zebrafish developed hypochromic anemia and impaired erythroid maturation despite the persistence of iron-loaded macrophages and elevated hepatic nonheme iron stores. Quantitative real-time ...

The authors report two cases of malignant tumours of the small intestine (one adenocarcinoma and one lymphoma). In both patients, longstanding anemia with hypochromia and decreased serum iron remained unexplained for some time. Iron was prescribed without definite diagnosis. These two cases demonstrate the extreme latency of these tumours and the necessity for detailed intestinal investigations in patients presenting with isolated hypochromic hyposideremic anemia. Among these investigations, doubla contrast roentgenographic study of the small intestine appears to be an adequate diagnostic procedure for disclosing even very small lesions.

Microcytic anemia is not caused by reduced DNA synthesis[citation needed].. Thalassemia can cause microcytosis. Depending upon how the terms are being defined, thalassemia can be considered a cause of microcytic anemia, or it can be considered a cause of microcytosis but not a cause of microcytic anemia.. There are many causes of microcytosis, which is essentially only a descriptor. Cells can be small because of mutations in the formation of blood cells (hereditary microcytosis) or because they are not filled with enough hemoglobin, as in iron-deficiency-associated microcytosis.. Red blood cells can be characterised by their haemoglobin content as well as by their size. The haemoglobin content is referred to as the cells colour. Therefore, there are both "normochromic microcytotic red cells" and "hypochromic, microcytotic red cells". The normochromic cells have a normal concentration of haemoglobin, and are therefore red enough while the hypochromic cells do not; thus the value of the mean ...

For a long time I tried to feel better and get back to health by myself. So when I was feeling bad, I tried to change things in my diet or to get help. When I was in pain, I consulted many professionnals. When I was worried for my health, I saw my family doctor. Eventually I felt that it was not normal to feel everyday that something was going wrong with my body. I even began to wonder if I was a hypochondriac or just too anxious, so I was keeping secret or overlooking different symptoms to my doctor.. After a few years of complaints and questioning myself about what I was doing wrong to feel that bad, I finally got to a point where something was really wrong. I was feeling tired and weak because of severe iron deficiency anemia, I felt anxious for anything when it is not in my genetics, I was so unable to think and nearly unable to work. I was blaming myself for not feeling well, for being inactive, gaining weight and for all the pain in my body. Finally, I have been diagnosed... by accident! ...

Subclinical iron deficiency anemia was diagnosed in a captive neonatal female Malayan tapir (Tapirus indicus) through blood samples obtained as part of an in-house training program for venipuncture. Routine blood testing performed at day 2 of age was within in-house and ISIS normal values for this species. Microcytic hypochromic anemia (HCT = 16 %; MCV = 38.4 fL; MCH = 13.3 ??g; MCHC = 34.6 g/dL) with thromboctyosis (platelets = 1018 * 103/?L) and poikilocytosis was diagnosed at day 38 of age. Iron dextran (10 mg/kg i.m.) was administered at day 40 and day 68 of age. Blood sampling at day 88 of age indicated improving hematocrit (32%) and low serum iron (45 ?g/dl; ISIS normal = 154 +/- 54 ?g/dl). Total iron binding capacity (TIBC; 438 ?g/dl), percent saturation (10%), ferritin (240 ng/ml), and haptoglobin (16 mg/dl) were also measured, but normal values are not established for this species. Repeat blood sampling through day 529 of age showed normalization of hematocrit and serum iron parameters ...
DISCUSSION. In the present study, the prevalence of iron depletion and iron-deficiency anemia in five-year old children of a cohort in the city of Diamantina (MG), were investigated. It is important to mention that most studies on this topic in Brazil have investigated iron-deficiency anemia [2,5,7,8,12,25-29], and few have evaluated these two conditions [6,30,31]. Therefore, our data will, in most cases, be compared with studies that investigated iron-deficiency anemia.. In the present study, the prevalence of iron depletion (15.9%) was similar to that of iron-deficiency anemia (18.94%). This result differs from those of studies that also investigated these two conditions [6,30,31]. Castro et al. [6] assessed the factors associated with iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemia in children aged 6-60 months in an urban area of two municipalities in the state of Acre and identified prevalence of 43.5% of iron depletion, which is more than twice the value found for anemia (20.9%). Carvalho et al. ...
Paleness. Since iron-deficiency anemia entails insufficient red blood cells, its not unlikely for you to look pale. The mucous membranes of the eyes are especially good at revealing the presence of the condition. Pull down your lower eyelid with your index finger. If its pale, you may have iron-deficiency anemia alright.. Fatigue. Experts say that one of the first few symptoms of iron-deficiency anemia is fatigue. But its not the kind of fatigue you usually experience after a busy day at work - its the kind that leaves you feeling bone-tired all day.. Rapid Heart Rate. Since you do not have enough oxygen-carrying red blood cells, your heart will attempt to supply your body with enough oxygen by pumping much faster than normal. Some people with iron-deficiency anemia may also experience irregular heartbeats, which can give rise to the next symptom.. Anxiety. It can be very disconcerting to feel your heart beating irregularly or racing even if youre just sitting or lying down, and this can ...
We present the case of a 70 year old patient, with a past history of hypertension, myocardial infarction, who came to our attention for a chronic obstructive arteriopathy of the lower extremities and claudicatio at 100 m. The patient also displayed an hypochromic anemia (Hb=7g/dL); no history of evident bleeding could be demonstrated. Ultrasonography showed the left common iliac artery obstruction and patent femoral, popliteal and tibial arteries.. The patient underwent colonoscopy that revealed a reddish area in the caecum that could be referred to angiodysplasia, and two small peduncolated polyps (0.5 and 0.8 mm) that were resected. Histology gave evidence of a low-grade tubular adenoma. Abdominal and lower limbs arteriography confirmed the ultrasonographic suspicion and we therefore proceeded with primary stenting of the iliac obstruction. At the same time, selective arteriography of the superior mesenteric artery was carried out, showing an angiographic appearance compatible with ...
... is a type of blood disorder. It is the result of a lack of iron in your body. Pregnancy increases the likelihood of becoming anaemic, but here are some ways to reduce your risks of developing the disorder.. What is iron-deficiency anaemia?. The red blood cells in your body contain haemoglobin, which is responsible for carrying oxygen throughout your body. Iron helps to create healthy red blood cells that keep your haemoglobin at the right level. A lack of iron could mean that you are anaemic.. How do you know if you have iron-deficiency anaemia?. Tiredness is the most common symptom you notice. And as its also common to feel tired during pregnancy, many women dont realize that a lack of iron is making them feel more tired than normal. Headaches, poor concentration, dizziness or a pale face, lips and nails are also symptoms you may experience if you are anaemic.. If youre experiencing any of these symptoms, be sure to visit your doctor for advice and treatment if ...
Iron-deficiency anemia may be suspected from general findings on a complete medical history and physical examination, such as complaints of tiring easily, abnormal paleness or lack of color of the skin, or a fast heartbeat (tachycardia). Iron-deficiency anemia is usually discovered during a medical examination through a blood test that measures the amount of hemoglobin (number of red blood cells) present, and the amount of iron in the blood. In addition to a complete medical history and physical examination, diagnostic procedures for iron-deficiency anemia may include the following:. ...

The article presents information on a study related to the efficacy of low-dose iron supplementation in older patients with iron-deficiency anemia. A randomized controlled trial of 90 patients was conducted in geriatric ward in a hospital in Rehovot, Israel. Low iron doses were given as liquid ferrous gluconate in a simple syrup to some patients. The study found that in older patients with iron-deficiency anemia, increases in hemoglobin levels did not differ between those receiving low-dose and conventional-dose iron supplementation ...
The study investigated the issues of iron metabolism under iron-deficiency anemia and chronic disorders anemia and dependencies of production of IL-1? and sICAM-1 immunoinflammatory markers from degree of severity and duration of anemia. The study data indicates that under iron-deficiency anemia lactoferrin and sICAM-1 are the negative regulators of hemopoiesis. The inhibition of transferrin expression by the proinflammatory cytokines is one of the causes of inefficient hemopoiesis under chronic disorders anemia.
