Perspectives from micronutrient malnutrition elimination/eradication programmes. (1/1218)

Micronutrient malnutrition cannot be eradicated, but the elimination and control of iron, vitamin A and iodine deficiencies and their health-related consequences as public health problems are currently the targets of global programmes. Remarkable progress is occurring in the control of goitre and xerophthalmia, but iron-deficiency anaemia (IDA) has been less responsive to prevention and control efforts. Subclinical consequences of micronutrient deficiencies, i.e. "hidden hunger", include compromised immune functions that increase the risk of morbidity and mortality, impaired cognitive development and growth, and reduced reproductive and work capacity and performance. The implications are obvious for human health and national and global economic and social development. Mixes of affordable interventions are available which, when appropriately adapted to resource availability and context, are proven to be effective. These include both food-based interventions, particularly fortification programmes, such as salt iodization, and use of concentrated micronutrient supplements. A mix of accompanying programmes for infection control, community participation, including education, communication and information exchange, and private sector involvement are lessons learned for overcoming deterrents and sustaining progress towards elimination.  (+info)

Candidate noninfectious disease conditions. (2/1218)

Important micronutrient deficiencies in at-risk populations can be addressed simultaneously with programmatically cost-effective results. Because of the interaction between many micronutrients, this would also be biologically effective. With adequate investment and political support, the chances of eliminating iodine deficiency as a problem in women of reproductive age and young children and of eliminating vitamin A deficiency as a problem in young children in the future are high. To eliminate iron deficiency and folic-acid-dependent neural tube defects (FADNTDs) in low-income populations, a new set of approaches will have to be developed. These same approaches, if successful, could be used to tackle other important micronutrient deficiencies.  (+info)

Idiopathic pulmonary haemosiderosis. Epidemiology, pathogenic aspects and diagnosis. (3/1218)

Idiopathic pulmonary haemosiderosis (IPH) is a rare clinical entity characterized by recurrent episodes of diffuse alveolar haemorrhage, often presenting with haemoptysis. Many patients have iron deficiency anaemia due to deposition of haemosiderin iron in the alveoli, and eventually develop moderate pulmonary fibrosis. Typically, intensive search for an aetiology ends up negative. There is no evidence of pulmonary vasculitis or capillaritis. The aetiology is obscure, but may be an immunological or toxic mechanism causing a defect in the basement membrane of the pulmonary capillary. IPH affects both children and adults. During an acute episode, a chest X-ray demonstrates bilateral, alveolar infiltrates. Sputum examination discloses haemosiderin-laden alveolar macrophages. Diagnosis is established by lung biopsy (fiber-optic or thoracoscopic), showing large numbers of haemosiderin-laden macrophages in the alveoli and without evidence of capillaritis or deposition of immunoglobulins. Corticosteroids and/or immunosuppressive drugs may be effective during an acute bleeding episode, and may in some patients improve symptoms and prognosis on the long-term, but the response to treatment displays great interindividual variation.  (+info)

Iron supplemented formula milk related to reduction in psychomotor decline in infants from inner city areas: randomised study. (4/1218)

OBJECTIVE: To compare the effect of unmodified cows' milk and iron supplemented formula milk on psychomotor development in infants from inner city areas when used as the main milk source. DESIGN: Double blind, randomised intervention trial. SETTING: Birmingham health centre. SUBJECTS: 100 infants, mean age 7.8 months (range 5.7 to 8.6 months), whose mothers had already elected to use unmodified cows' milk as their infant's milk source. INTERVENTION: Changing to an iron supplemented formula milk from enrolment to 18 months of age, or continuing with unmodified cows' milk. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Developmental assessments using Griffiths scales at enrolment and at 18 and 24 months. RESULTS: 85 participants completed the trial. There were no significant differences in haemoglobin concentration between the two groups at enrolment, but by 18 months of age 33% of the unmodified cows' milk group, but only 2% of the iron supplemented group, were anaemic (P<0.001). The experimental groups had Griffiths general quotient scores that were not significantly different at enrolment, but the scores in both groups declined during the study. By 24 months the decrease in the mean scores in the unmodified cows' milk group was 14.7 whereas the decrease in the mean scores in the iron supplemented group was 9.3 (P<0.02, 95% confidence interval 0.4 to 10.4). Mean subquotient scores were considerably lower in the unmodified cows' milk group at 24 months; significantly so for personal and social scores (P<0.02, 1.2 to 16.8 [corrected]). CONCLUSION: Replacing unmodified cows' milk with an iron supplemented formula milk up to 18 months of age in infants from inner city areas prevents iron deficiency anaemia and reduces the decline in psychomotor development seen in such infants from the second half of the first year.  (+info)

Two way push videoenteroscopy in investigation of small bowel disease. (5/1218)

AIMS: To evaluate the diagnostic yield and safety of a new push type videoenteroscope (PVE) for diagnosis of small bowel disease. METHODS: Three hundred and thirteen patients were referred for one or two way PVE from December 1993 to June 1996. Indications for PVE were: an unexplained iron deficiency anaemia with or without clinically evident gastrointestinal bleeding; or a complementary investigation for suspected small bowel disease, after a small bowel barium follow through (SBBFT) considered as normal or abnormal, but without a definite diagnosis. RESULTS: A jejunoscopy and a retrograde ileoscopy were carried out in 306 and 234 patients, respectively. In patients with isolated anaemia (n = 131) and those with clinically evident gastrointestinal bleeding associated anaemia (n = 72), PVE provided a diagnosis in 26 (19.8%) and 22 (30.5%) cases, respectively. Lesions found were located in the jejunoileum in 30 (14.7%) patients and in the gastroduodenum or the colon in 18 (8.8%) patients--that is, within the reach of the conventional gastroscope/colonoscope. In patients with normal (n = 54) or abnormal (n = 56) SBBFT, PVE provided a diagnosis in 17 (31%) and 27 (48%) cases, respectively. In 25% of cases, the abnormal appearance of SBBFT was not confirmed. The site of the radiological abnormality was not reached in 27% of cases. Lesions were located at the jejunum and the ileum in 59 (64%) and 33 (36%) cases, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: PVE is useful in around 30% of cases of unexplained anaemia or after an SBBFT which failed to provide an accurate aetiological diagnosis. Use of retrograde videoenteroscopy increases diagnostic yield by one third.  (+info)

Ambulatory management of common forms of anemia. (6/1218)

Anemia is a prevalent condition with a variety of underlying causes. Once the etiology has been established, many forms of anemia can be easily managed by the family physician. Iron deficiency, the most common form of anemia, may be treated orally or, rarely, parenterally. Vitamin B12 deficiency has traditionally been treated with intramuscular injections, although oral and intranasal preparations are also available. The treatment of folate deficiency is straightforward, relying on oral supplements. Folic acid supplementation is also recommended for women of child-bearing age to reduce their risk of neural tube defects. Current research focuses on folate's role in reducing the risk of premature cardiovascular disease.  (+info)

The comparison of mixed distribution analysis with a three-criteria model as a method for estimating the prevalence of iron deficiency anaemia in Costa Rican children aged 12-23 months. (7/1218)

BACKGROUND: A maximum likelihood method of mixed distribution analysis (MDA) is presented as a method to estimate the prevalence of iron deficiency anaemia (IDA) in Costa Rican infants 12-23 months old. MDA characterizes the parameters of the admixed distributions of iron deficient anaemics and non-iron-deficient-anaemics (NA) from the frequency distribution of haemoglobin concentration of the total sample population. METHODS: Data collected by Lozoff et al. (1986) from 345 Costa Rican infants 12-23 months old were used to estimate the parameters of the IDA and NA haemoglobin distributions determined by MDA and the widely used three-criteria model of iron deficiency. The estimates of the prevalence of IDA by each of the methods were compared. The sensitivity and specificity of MDA compared to diagnosis by the three-criteria method were assessed. Simulations were carried out to assess the comparability of MDA and the three-criteria method in low and high prevalence scenarios. RESULTS: The mean and standard deviation (SD) of the NA haemoglobin distribution determined by both methods was 12.1 +/- 1.0 g/dL. The IDA haemoglobin distribution determined by MDA had a mean and SD of 10.2 +/- 1.3 g/dL while the IDA distribution by the three-criteria method had a mean and SD of 10.4 +/- 1.3 g/dL. The prevalences of IDA as estimated by MDA and the three-criteria method were 24% and 29%, respectively. The sensitivity and specificity of MDA were 95% and 97%, respectively. The performance of MDA was similar to the three-criteria method at a simulated high prevalence of IDA and less similar at a low prevalence of IDA. CONCLUSIONS: Compared to the reference three-criteria method MDA provides a more accurate estimate of the true prevalence of IDA than the haemoglobin cutoff method in a population of children aged 12-23 months with a moderate to high prevalence of IDA. MDA is a less costly method for estimating the severity of IDA in populations with moderate to high prevalences of IDA, and for assisting in the design, monitoring and evaluation of iron intervention programmes.  (+info)

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 ...
Iron is found in meat, dried fruit and some vegetables. It is used by the body to make haemoglobin, which helps store and carry oxygen in red blood cells (see box, left). Haemoglobin transports oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. If there is a lack of iron in the blood, the organs and tissues will not get as much oxygen as they usually do.. How common is iron deficiency anaemia?. Iron deficiency anaemia affects up to 1 in 20 men and 1 in 20 post-menopausal women (after a womans menstrual periods have stopped). Iron deficiency anaemia is more common in women who are still menstruating (having periods). This is because menstruation and pregnancy can cause iron deficiency. Outlook. Treatment for iron deficiency anaemia involves increasing dietary iron intake or taking iron supplements to replace the missing iron in the body. This is usually very effective and the condition rarely causes any serious complications. If you have iron deficiency anaemia, you may need to be monitored to check ...
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:. ...

Iron-deficiency anaemia 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 ...
Reticulocyte haemoglobin content as a diagnostic tool for iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anaemia in ill infants and children
Iron deficiency anemia treatment is usually very simple. One of the most common iron deficiency anemia treatments is to take an iron supplement. The supplement will increase the amount of iron in the body and feed it to the hemoglobin. More hemoglobin will produce and it will work properly. This will allow the red blood cells to transport the oxygen throughout the body. Another iron deficiency anemia treatment is change in diet. Adding some iron-rich food will help your iron level increase. Red meat, eggs, leafy greens and beans are examples of food that have a high amount of iron in it. In some cases, you may experience blood loss caused by the disorder. If this is the case, the only iron deficiency anemia treatment that will completely work is a blood transfusion. Doctors do not like to perform these and only use them in severe cases, but sometimes they are needed. The transfusion will replace the blood loss and in doing so, will give the body a sufficient amount of healthy red blood cells. ...
If your iron levels get particularly low, you can develop iron deficiency anaemia. This is when you dont have enough iron for your body to make enough fully working red blood cells to carry the normal amounts of oxygen around your body. Having iron deficiency anaemia can affect your pregnancy and the growth of your baby,3 and you will likely be checked for anaemia as part of your normal pregnancy screening tests.. Signs that you may have low iron levels and/or iron deficiency anaemia, include feeling listless or washed out, looking pale or feeling breathless. Cravings are often joked about during pregnancy - dashing out for ice-cream in the middle of the night or a never ending desire for pickled onions. But having iron deficiency anaemia can also cause you to crave strange things, including ice, or even dirt. If you feel your cravings are becoming unusual, or you think you have any of the other signs of iron deficiency such as faintness or feeling fatigued4, you should talk to your doctor who ...
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 ...

Abstract: Iron deficiency anemia is the most common micronutrient deficiency in the world today. It impacts the lives of millions of women and children contributing to poor cognitive development, increased maternal mortality and decreased work capacity. Yet with appropriate public health action, this form of micronutrient malnutrition can be brought under control. These guidelines are offered as an important component of iron deficiency anemia control programs. The International Nutritional Anemia Consultative Group (INACG) has a long standing commitment to provide scientifically sound recommendations to public health planners and managers about ways to control iron deficiency anemia. This publication is another in a series of publications aimed at providing such guidance.. Download the guidelines here.. ...
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.
There are many different types of anemia. However, the most frequent type is iron-deficiency anemia. Read below to find out if you have iron-deficiency anemia.
Table 2: Safety and Efficacy of Intravenous Ferric Carboxymaltose (750 mg) in the Treatment of Iron Deficiency Anemia: Two Randomized, Controlled Trials
Anemia occurs when you have a level of red blood cells (RBCs) in your blood that is lower than normal. Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia, and it occurs when your body doesnt have enough of the mineral iron. Your body needs iron to make a protein called hemoglobin. This protein is responsible for carrying oxygen to your bodys tissues, which is essential for your tissues and muscles to function effectively. When there isnt enough iron in your blood stream, the rest of your body cant get the amount of oxygen it needs. In women of childbearing age, the most common cause of iron deficiency anemia is a loss of iron in the blood due to heavy menstruation or pregnancy. A poor diet or certain intestinal diseases that affect how the body absorbs iron can also cause iron deficiency anemia. Doctors normally treat the condition with iron supplements or changes to diet ...
Transcript:. Iron deficiency anemia is a fairly common condition, and it can lead to symptoms like being tired all the time, feeling cold, being breathless, because you dont have enough hemoglobin in your bloodstream. Common causes include hemorrhage (obviously if you have a car accident, you injure yourself, you lose a lot of blood), menstrual cycles in females (especially ladies who have a lot of menstrual flow), and grain consumption.. Now why in the world would the consumption of wheat and grains cause iron deficiency anemia? Some of the worst iron deficiency anemias, by the way, Ive ever seen, are in women, oddly mostly women, who consume grains. Ive seen women, for instance, go through blood transfusions, bone marrow biopsies, taking oral prescription iron supplements, getting iron injections, and still cant get their hemoglobin up. But they finally go wheat- and grain-free, and the hemoglobin comes up within two weeks.. Wheat and grain consumption is a very common and powerful cause ...

To the editor: The platelet count in iron-deficiency anemia is typically elevated. Severe iron deficiency may cause thrombocytopenia (1, 3); this has been shown in children (4). We have been unable to discover any report of low platelets associated with iron-deficiency anemia in an adult. The response to iron in an adult with a severe iron-deficiency anemia and thrombocytopenia but with normal serum folate and vitamin B12 levels is described below; an apparent case of iron-deficiency thrombocytopenia.. A 31-year-old black women presented to the emergency room with flank pain and hematuria of 1 months duration. For the previous year she ...
Iron is an essential component of the production of healthy RBCs, and iron stores must be maintained for the ongoing production of RBCs by the bone marrow. Iron deficiency anemia can develop as a result of depleted iron stores from chronic blood loss, increased demands for iron as seen in periods of growth (e.g., in infancy and adolescence ), or malabsorption of iron even when foods or supplements are supplying adequate amounts. It is accepted that iron is hard to absorb; this, in combination with diets that may not meet daily requirements, is a common route to iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia. Iron can also be lost through strenuous exercise and heavy perspiration, poor digestion, frequent consumption of antacids, long-term illness, heavy menstrual cycles, and other causes. Infancy is a period of increased risk for iron deficiency because dietary iron may not be adequate for the rapid growth of the child in the first two years of life, an example of increased demand. The human infant ...

As no curative treatment is currently available for Crohns Disease (CD), treatment options are restricted to controlling symptoms, maintaining remission and preventing relapse. As such, treatment of iron deficiency anaemia (IDA), a key symptom of the disease, is integral to the medical management of CD. Iron deficiency anaemia in CD is a chronically debilitating disorder which has a significant impact on the quality of life of affected subjects. Characteristic symptoms of IDA include chronic fatigue, headache, and subtle impairment of cognitive function. Up to one third of subjects with CD suffer from recurrent anaemia, with hospitalization required in severe cases. First line standard therapy for mild to moderate IDA in CD is typically oral ferrous products (OFP), however this is often not successful. Many subjects are intolerant and suffer from continuously occurring side effects, occasional exacerbation of inflammatory lesions and failure to correct iron deficiency. Common adverse effects of ...

Upon division of the sample into an iron-deficient and iron-sufficient group only (i.e. only on the basis of TfS ,25%), the mean CHr values were 24.74% and 28.67%, respectively, revealing a statistically significant difference (t=-4.34; p,0.01) (Table 3).. Red blood cell parameters, S-ferritin and S-transferrin values are presented in Table 4. A statistically significant difference was found between the groups for mean corpuscular haemoglobin (MCH) (p=0.027), S-transferrin (p=0.0002) and CHr (p=0.0001).. The sensitivity of a CHr value ,29 pg to detect ID was 86% (95% CI 77.3 - 93.1) and the specificity was 50% (95% CI 26.0 - 74.0).. An unexpected finding was that a group of children who presented with a TfS ,25% (i.e. iron-sufficient) had an Hb level ,11 g/dl (i.e. anaemic), but a CHr level ,29 pg (Table 5).

Primary Hypothesis: There is no difference in the efficacy of iron replacement by oral or intravenous route in Inflammatory Bowel Disease patients.. Iron deficiency anaemia is a common problem in people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and patients with excessive blood loss from the bowel or heavy menstrual loss. Treatment options include a blood transfusion, oral iron with (Ferrograd ®) or intravenous iron replacement with iron sucrose (Venofer®). Iron deficiency anaemia is associated with poor quality of life, poor concentration span and low energy level. Blood transfusion may improve symptomatic anaemia quickly but there is a risk of transfusion reaction and blood born infection transmission. Moreover, packed cells are scarce resource therefore its use needs to be carefully prioritized. Oral iron supplement has been widely used and it can be purchased over the counter, however, its efficacy is not known in IBD population. Oral iron is poorly tolerated with side effects include altered ...

Iron deficiency and iron deficiency anaemia are major public health problems in young children worldwide, and are associated with poor neurodevelopment. Delayed umbilical cord clamping has been suggested as a measure to prevent infant iron deficiency,1 but we lack data concerning its health benefits and possible adverse effects, especially in high income countries.. Young children are at particular risk of iron deficiency because of high iron requirements during rapid growth in combination with low iron intake. Globally, about a quarter of preschool children have iron deficiency anaemia, the most severe form of iron deficiency. In Europe, the prevalence of iron deficiency anaemia is 3-7% among young children, and the prevalence of iron deficiency has been reported to be as high as 26%.2 3 4 Iron is essential for several aspects of brain development, including myelination, dendritogenesis, neurotransmitter function, and neuronal and glial energy metabolism.5 6 Iron deficiency anaemia in young ...
To address these concerns, researchers developed a ferritin index, a calculated ratio of sTfR:log ferritin, to provide a more accurate indicator of true iron deficiency in patients with anemia of inflammation. A low ratio indicates anemia of inflammation, while a higher index reveals true iron-deficiency anemia in association with anemia of inflammation. Unfortunately at this time, the cutoff value is largely dependent on the specific diagnostic test used, and some clinicians may find interpretation difficult.8 However, some evidence suggests that when used correctly the test can help improve the clinical diagnosis of iron-deficiency anemia, especially in the presence of inflammatory disease.9. Another potentially helpful test is reticulocyte hemoglobin content (CHr), which predicts iron availability for erythropoiesis. It tends to be reduced in anemia of inflammation present along with iron-deficiency anemia compared to anemia of inflammation alone. However, the test shows some overlap between ...

Iron-deficiency anemia (or iron-deficiency anaemia) is a common type of anemia. It is caused by not having enough iron in food, not absorbing the iron in food, and/or losing iron because of bleeding. Iron deficiency causes approximately half of all anemia cases worldwide, and affects women more often than men. This is partly because most women have periods (menstruate). There are probably more than one billion people who have anemia.[1] Anemia is most common in areas like Brazil or Central Africa. Asia, Central America and Eastern Europe are affected too, with North America least affected. Symptoms include pale skin, tiredness, and weakness. Anemia can be diagnosed with a blood test by finding out if there is little enough hemoglobin in the blood. ...

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 ...

IIIMB BCh, MMed (Haematol); National Health Laboratory Service, Johannesburg Hospital and University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg. Correspondence. To the Editor: The prevalence of iron deficiency in a South African urban environment is probably in keeping with European and USA findings of around 10%. Although our results present the prevalence of iron deficiency anaemia among urban females, a more detailed study that includes ferritin levels is needed for confirmation. Awareness of and attention to screening for iron deficiency remain essential for improving the quality of life and productivity of women in South Africa.. Method and findings. We used data from a study on the prevalence of HIV infection among health care workers in South Africa,1 to evaluate and revalidate the current automated full blood count reference ranges for the Gauteng region. A striking finding was the large number of samples that had to be excluded from the statistical analysis because of the presence of ...

A study on the prevalence and frequency rates of iron deficiency anemia among patients in el. Khorma province, western Saudi Arabia
Additional laboratory data in our 35-year-old patient at 36 weeks gestation included: serum iron, 24 μg/dL; TIBC, 623 μg/dL; and ferritin, 6 μg/L (ng/mL), establishing a diagnosis of iron-deficiency anemia.. Iron repletion can be achieved with either oral or IV iron. The choice of therapy depends on the degree of anemia, the stage of pregnancy, and factors that influence gastrointestinal absorption of iron.. Oral iron is the frontline therapy for iron-deficiency anemia. It is inexpensive, readily available, and effective. However, up to 70% of patients experience significant gastrointestinal side effects (nausea, constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, and metallic taste) that prevent adherence to treatment.36 In pregnancy, decreased bowel motility caused by elevated progesterone and the enlarging uterus pressing on the rectum is made worse by oral iron.37,38. Recommendations for dosing oral iron vary from 60 to 200 mg of elemental iron per day.2,21 This can be achieved with 325-mg tablets ...
Test results may vary depending on your age, gender, health history, the method used for the test, and other things. Your test results may not mean you have a problem. Ask your healthcare provider what your test results mean for you. Results are given in milligrams per deciliter (mg/dL). The normal range for transferrin is 170 to 370 mg/dl. If you have a higher amount, you may have iron-deficiency anemia. If you have a lower level, you may have another problem, such as liver disease and hemolytic anemia. Transferrin may also be measured using a value called total iron-binding capacity (TIBC). Results are given in micrograms per deciliter (mcg/dL). Normal values are 300 to 360 mcg/dL. A higher level means that you may have iron-deficiency anemia. Another measurement, called transferrin saturation, checks how many places on your transferrin that can hold iron are actually doing so. Normal values are 20% to 50%. In severe cases of iron-deficiency and anemia, this number may fall below 10%. Many ...
Maternal iron deficiency during pregnancy induces anaemia in the developing fetus; however, the severity tends to be less than in the mother. The mechanism underlying this resistance has not been determined. We have measured placental expression of proteins involved in iron transfer in pregnant rats given diets with decreasing levels of iron and examined the effect of iron deficiency on iron transfer across BeWo cell layers, a model for placental iron transfer. Transferrin receptor expression was increased at both mRNA and protein levels. Similarly, expression of the iron-responsive element (IRE)-regulated form of the divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1) was also increased. In contrast, the non-IRE regulated isoform showed no change in mRNA levels. Protein levels of DMT1 increased significantly. Iron efflux is thought to be mediated by the metal transporter protein, IREG1/ferroportin1/MTP1, and oxidation of Fe(II) to Fe(III) prior to incorporation into fetal transferrin is carried out by the ...
Anemia and Iron Status Young children are at great risk of iron deficiency because of rapid growth and increased iron requirements. Iron deficiency can occur due to lack of iron in the diets. If this continues, anemia results. Anemia is a manifestation of iron deficiency when it is relatively severe.. It is important to note that not all anemia is due to iron deficiency. The primary causes of anemia include reduced red blood cell and hemoglobin production, hemolysis of red blood cells, and loss of blood. Although an inadequate dietary intake of several nutrients may reduce the production of red blood cells and hemoglobin, the most common cause of anemia throughout the world is iron deficiency.. Poverty, abuse, and living in a home with poor household conditions also place children at risk for iron deficiency anemia. Iron deficiency anemia is seen most commonly in children six months to three years of age. Those at highest risk are low birth weight infants after two months of age, breastfed term ...
Iron deficiency is common worldwide and is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes. The increasing prevalence of indiscriminate iron supplementation during pregnancy also raises concerns about the potential adverse effects of iron excess. We examined how maternal iron status affects the delivery of iron to the placenta and fetus. Using mouse models, we documented maternal homeostatic mechanisms that protect the placenta and fetus from maternal iron excess. We determined that under physiological conditions or in iron deficiency, fetal and placental hepcidin did not regulate fetal iron endowment. With maternal iron deficiency, critical transporters mediating placental iron uptake (transferrin receptor 1 [TFR1]) and export (ferroportin [FPN]) were strongly regulated. In mice, not only was TFR1 increased, but FPN was surprisingly decreased to preserve placental iron in the face of fetal iron deficiency. In human placentas from pregnancies with mild iron deficiency, TFR1 was increased, but there ...

Hi, Im 31+6 with second baby, first is now 3. I found out about a month ago from a blood test done by my midwife that my iron levels were low so would need to start taking iron tablets. The doctor prescribed me ferrous sulphate but I expressed my concerns about taking iron tablets as I knew they could make you constipated (I had this very severe a few months ago so bad it was nearly at blockage stage, sorry!) Doctor said just to take one or two a day rather than 3 and see how many I could tolerate. The tablets didnt agree with me at all, had diarrhea, nausea dizziness, lots of nasty side affects. The doctor then said I was having too many side affects so changed the tablets to ferrous fumerate. These suited me better but I was only taking one a day. I went back to see the doctor last week as I had been feeling very breathless even when not doing anything and lightheaded like I was going to pass out. He said this could be the anemia and wanted my bloods to be checked again. My blood levels have ...
This recommendation is consistent with the 2006 recommendation statement on iron supplementation during pregnancy. Both the 2006 and the current recommendation statements found insufficient evidence to determine the balance of the benefits and harms of iron supplementation during pregnancy. Although the 2006 statement recommended screening for iron deficiency anemia in pregnant women, the current recommendation found insufficient evidence to recommend for or against screening. In its review of the evidence to update the 2006 recommendation, the USPSTF found no good- or fair-quality studies on the benefits or harms of screening that would be applicable to the current U.S. population of pregnant women. Since 2006, the USPSTF has updated its methodology to better identify evidence that would be most applicable to the current U.S. population. Therefore, the USPSTF determined that the currently available and applicable evidence on screening for and early treatment of iron deficiency anemia in ...

There are now convincing data to show that IDA in infancy and early childhood is causally associated with developmental delay. The evidence has recently been reviewed comprehensively by Lansdown and Wharton.20 In the experimental animal with IDA, usually the rat, there is a reduction in spontaneous activity and a diurnal reversal in the pattern of activity, which rapidly returns to normal following iron treatment. Of the few studies on cognitive behaviour in the rat, none has demonstrated a deficit. Instead, non-cognitive behaviours, such as reactivity and arousal, appear to be impaired.21 In man, development in the first two years of postnatal life may be particularly vulnerable to iron deficiency, as this is the time when the most important changes in neuronal multiplication take place. This period also coincides with the peak prevalence of iron deficiency.. Interpretation of studies addressing a causal relationship between IDA and developmental delay is hampered by a number of confounders. ...

Since 1980 investigations, by this group, of patients with iron deficiency anaemia and no obvious cause, have been limited to upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, with small bowel biopsy, and barium enema. This study attempted to follow up 93 consecutive patients whose anaemia remained obscure after these investigations to determine the outcome and assess the safety of this limited approach. In 1991/92 questionnaires were sent to the general practitioners. Eighty three completed questionnaires were received. Ten patients had died all unrelated to the iron deficiency anaemia. The mean follow up of the 73 living patients was six years (range 4-12). Sixty five (89%) had a normal haemoglobin concentration and only 15 were still taking oral iron. Possible causes for the anaemia were found in 17-non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug use in 10, menstruation in two, gastrectomy in three, poor nutrition in two. No other cause emerged. It is concluded that this limited investigative approach is safe.. ...
Iron is essential for numerous bodily functions not least the production of the red blood cell oxygen transporter hemoglobin and myoglobin, a related molecule essential for muscle function. Iron deficiency is one of the most common nutritional deficiencies, especially in, but not limited to, premenopausal women.. Clinical signs of iron deficiency include anemia, difficulty in concentration, poor memory, depression, dizziness, weakness, labored breathing, anginal pain, brittle lusterless, flattened or spoon-shaped nails, swollen ankles, hair loss, pale skin, and exhaustion.. Paradoxically, obesity, a state more commonly considered in the context of over- than under-nutrition, is associated with a higher risk of iron deficiency compared to normal-weight individuals.. Several hypotheses have been suggested for this paradox including dilutional (pseudo) hypoferremia, poor dietary iron intake, increased iron requirements (in part due to the earlier onset and often more severe periods associated with ...
Iron supplements can be taken to increase iron levels. Supplements can cause irritation of the stomach and cause stools to become black in color. Iron supplements should be taken on an empty stomach or with orange juice to increase absorption.. Sometimes people either cannot tolerate iron supplements or they are simply not absorbing iron. Iron must then be supplemented through an IV or an injection into the hip. Your doctor will tell you the best way for you to get this supplementation. Some people can have an allergic reaction to iron. A small test dose is always given first to make sure you are not allergic to the iron supplements.. ...

Iron is essential for your health. It is vital for the production of haemoglobin - the pigment that makes your blood red in colour. The iron in haemoglobin combines with oxygen and transports it through the blood to your tissues and organs. If your iron is low your body simply doesnt get the oxygen it needs to function properly. This is why you can feel exhausted, breathless and dizzy when your iron is low. Low iron can be due to dietary factors - you dont eat enough iron for your bodys needs, but is more frequently caused by blood loss from menstruation or internal bleeding, often in the digestive tract. Iron deficiency anaemia can also develop in pregnancy.. Iron deficiency is the most prevalent nutritional problem both in the UK and worldwide. In developed countries, between 10-20% of women of child-bearing age are said to be anaemic.. This simple blood test evaluates how much iron you have in your blood, in order to diagnose low iron levels or monitor existing iron deficiency. Raised iron ...
I have to take an iron supplement everyday for my anemia. Unfortunately, the iron supplement gives me diarrhea because I have Irritable Bowel Syndrome. I even tried a liquid iron supplement called Floradix. Even that did not work. Can someone recommend a iron supplement that does not cause diarrhea?
We assessed the clinical characteristics of IDA in infants and young children. Similar to studies conducted in the United States [16], Sweden [17], and in Southeast Asia [18], IDA in infants was more prevalent in boys than in girls (M:F=2.14:1; age,2 yr). According to Domellöf et al. [17], at 9 months of age, male infants have significantly lower Hb level and exhibit a 10-fold higher risk of being diagnosed with IDA than female infants. They further suggested that the reasons for increased IDA risk in the male infants were a higher pre- and post-natal growth rate, an increased fetal erythropoietic activity resulting in a low iron storage state [17, 19], lower iron absorption, larger intestinal iron loss, and more frequent infections in boys than in girls. However, these gender-based differences disappear when iron-fortified foods are administered, and the amount of oral iron requirement is reported to be 6-10 mg/day [17, 18].. In this study, the highest prevalence of IDA was noted in the ...
tomatoes. The tannins found in tea may effect iron absorption. Therefor, it is advisable to not have strong tea with meals as a rule.. Rather have a glass of milk with a meal that contains iron. Some of the proteins in milk may support iron absorption. The calcium in milk may also inhibit some food components, such as tannins found in tea and oxalates found in green leafy vegetables e.g. spinach, that may reduce iron absorption in susceptible individuals.. When a prescription for an iron supplement is required, this should still be accompanied by increased intake of foods with high iron content and Vitamin C.. Iron is not a harmless nutrient and supplements should not be taken routinely.. Prevention is better that cure - adequate dietary intake of iron from food sources remains the best day to day option. ...
For years, scientists have found evidence showing that the type of iron used in Injectafer, ferric carboxymaltose (FCM), can increase risk of HPP. Back in 2013, researchers looked at nearly 50 patients with chronic kidney disease who also had iron-deficiency anemia. The patients received a single injection of FCM, and their blood levels of phosphate levels dropped significantly for three weeks afterwards. They remained low at week 12.. In a 2016 study, researchers compared FCM and another iron supplement called iron isomaltoside. After examining data from 81 patients, they found that hypophosphatemia risk was greater with FCM (45.5 percent) compared to only 4 percent with iron isomaltoside. They also found that severe HPP occurred only in those treated with FCM, with a risk of 32.7 percent.. In a 2015 study, scientists looked at the medical records of patients who received iron injections between 2012 and 2014. Among those treated with FCM, 51 percent developed HPP, compared to only 22 percent ...
The best way to prevent iron deficiency or anemia is to take diet that is rich in iron. Check out this list of food that is high in iron.
Women: Do you have trouble concentrating? Does it take you longer than others to complete tasks? Are you often forgetful? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may have low iron levels.While the effects of iron deficiency on mental function in children are well recognized, less is known about how an iron shortage affects the adult brain. In the first study of its kind, published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers from Pennsylvania State University showed how women with low iron levels can think more clearly by taking extra iron.Women of reproductive age and children are at high risk for iron deficiency. Some of the hallmarks of iron deficiency anemia are extreme fatigue, shortness of breath, and rapid heartbeat. However, even if iron deficiency is not severe enough to cause anemia, it might have adverse effects on brain function.The investigators wanted to find out how mental (cognitive) functioning in young women was affected by iron deficiency, and to what degree
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! ...

Clinical Question: Are patients with iron deficiency anemia at increased risk of also having a gastrointestinal (GI) malignancy?. Setting: Population-based. Study Design: Cohort (prospective). Synopsis: The investigators started with 9,024 adults (mean age: 40 years) who were enrolled in a general study of health and nutrition. Eight percent of these patients had iron deficiency (determined by iron saturation of less than 15 percent), and 1.6 percent of the total group also was anemic. A GI malignancy was identified during the following two years in 18 patients (0.2 percent). None of the premenopausal women with iron deficiency was anemic (95 percent confidence interval [CI]: 0 to 3 percent). Among patients with iron deficiency anemia, one in 16 (6 percent, 95 percent CI: 1 to 16 percent) was diagnosed with a GI malignancy during the subsequent two years. Of patients older than 65 years, 9 percent (95 percent CI: 2 to 25 percent) with anemia had a malignancy. Only 1 percent of the patients with ...
Iron deficiency (ID) is the most common micronutrient deficiency worldwide and young children are a special risk group because their rapid growth leads to high iron requirements. Risk factors associated with a higher prevalence of ID anemia (IDA) include low birth weight, high cows-milk intake, low intake of iron-rich complementary foods, low socioeconomic status, and immigrant status. The aim of this position paper was to review the field and provide recommendations regarding iron requirements in infants and toddlers, including those of moderately or marginally low birth weight. There is no evidence that iron supplementation of pregnant women improves iron status in their offspring in a European setting. Delayed cord clamping reduces the risk of ID. There is insufficient evidence to support general iron supplementation of healthy European infants and toddlers of normal birth weight.

With the challenge of optimizing iron delivery, new intravenous (iv) iron-carbohydrate complexes have been developed in the last few years. A good example of these new compounds is ferric carboxymaltose (FCM), which has recently been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of iron deficiency anemia in adult patients who are intolerant to oral iron or present an unsatisfactory response to oral iron, and in adult patients with non-dialysis-dependent chronic kidney disease (NDD-CKD).

Although it may sound uncommon, iron deficiency anemia is a very present disease that represents shortage of red blood cells as a result of low blood cells in the organism.. When the body lacks iron to turn it into hemoglobin, the red blood cannot carry oxygenated blood to all the body tissues and this comes with many side-effects you might have noticed.. All people are subjected to iron deficiency anemia, although some are more prone to the disease than others.. The biggest risk group is the vegetarians and vegans, since red meat, the biggest iron source, is omitted from their nutrition. Also, blood donors are exposed to suffering from this disease since they share large quantities of iron with other people.. The same is true for women donors more than men, because of the pregnancy factor as well as the menstrual cycle. ...
Most of the iron in your body is found in your red blood cells, which plays an important role in transferring oxygen from your lungs to your tissues. When you have insufficient iron stores you may not be able to meet the needs of red blood cell production. This means that red blood cell production will be reduced along with oxygen distribution around your body. We also need iron for healthy immune function and for the production of white blood cells and antibodies.. Iron is necessary for the production of energy from glucose, which is the main fuel for both the brain and the rest of the body. Iron deficiency can lead to anaemia. The groups within the population who are at most risk from iron-deficiency anaemia include those with the highest iron needs: infants, pre-schoolers, adolescents and pregnant women.. Symptoms if Iron Deficiency include (2): ...
