Iron Deficiency Anemia (also called IDA) is a condition where a person has inadequate amounts of iron to meet body demands. It is a decrease in the amount of red cells in the blood caused by having too little iron. IDA is usually caused by a diet insufficient in iron or from blood loss. Blood loss can be acute as in hemorrhage or trauma or long term as in heavy menstruation. Iron deficiency anemia is the most common form of anemia. About 20% of women, 50% of pregnant women, and 3% of men are iron deficient. Iron deficiency anemia and sickle cell anemia are VERY DIFFERENT. To read about sickle cell anemia, click here Some people with iron deficiency anemia always feel cold. They feel cold because iron plays a role in regulating the body's temperature. What is Iron? Iron is an essential component of hemoglobin, the oxygen carrying pigment in the blood. Iron is normally obtained through the food in the diet. Iron is part of hemoglobin, the oxygen-carrying component of the blood. Iron-deficient people tire easily because their bodies are starved for oxygen. Iron is also part of myoglobin. Myoglobin helps muscle cells store oxygen. Without enough iron, the body's fuel cannot be properly synthesized.

Approach to the Patient with Anemia
Author: Márcia Datz , Pediatric Resident University of São Paulo - Brazil
Anemia is a commonly encountered clinical condition that is caused by an acquired or hereditary abnormality of red blood cells (RBC) or its precursors, or may be a manifestation of an nonhematologic disorder.
Anemia is defined as a decrease in the circulating RBC mass and a corresponding decrease in the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood.
Normal values of the hemogram: TEST WOMEN MEN Ht (%) 36-48 40-52 Hg (g/dl) 12-16 13,5-17,7 Hem 4,0-5,4 4,5-6,0 VCM 80-100 80-100 A decrease in any of this values (Ht, Hg, Hem) is called anemia. They can be altered by the plasmatic volumes.Diference between women and men values are due to androgen hormones.
Signs and Symptoms
The clinical manifestations vary with the age, degree and rapidity of onset, presence of subjacent illness and other factors. Mild anemia are often assymptomatic. The main symptoms are exercise dyspnea, fatigue, palpitation, pica (consumption of substances such as ice, starch or clay, frequently found in iron deficiency anemia), syncope (particularly following exercise) and bounding pulse. Dizziness, headache, syncope, tinnitus or vertigo, irritability, difficulty sleeping or concentrating are more frequent in severe chronic anemia.

Lets define the terms of the disease one at a time. "Autoimmune" literally means the immunity against the self."Hemolytic" is the destruction of red blood cells. "Anemia" is a clinical sign, not a disease. Anemia is defined as a decrease in the number of red blood cells (RBC's) or the amount of hemoglobin, resulting in a decrease in the oxygen- carrying capacity of the blood. spherocyte occurs. Finding spherocytes on a blood smear almost guarantees that some form of hemolytic anemia is occurring. Since this disorder does not stop the production of red blood cells, there are usually immature red blood cells in the bloodstream which can be detected on the blood smears as well.

6. Iron & Anemia - Ask The Dietitian
Answers questions commonly asked about iron and role it has in consumer diet.

I am a 33 year old married mother of one. I have what I feel is an embarrassing and possibly life threatening disorder. Some years ago I was diagnosed as being anemic. The iron level was so low that the doctor asked if I ate or craved anything unusual. I told him that I crave and chew ice quite often. The doctor explained that this was a pica and I should stop chewing the ice because it was effecting my body's ability to absorb iron. What I did not tell the doctor is that I crave and chew plain white paper (typing paper). I have done this since I was a teenager and chew about 2 pages per day. I have never discussed this problem with anyone. Can you help me with my questions: Have you ever heard of a pica and of someone craving paper? Is this detrimental to my health? I fear that I have a large quantity of paper or chemicals stored somewhere in my body as a result of this disorder? Is there anything I can do to stop the paper and ice cravings?

Health Information for Teens
Iron and Teens:
A Guide to Anemia Prevention What is iron? Why do I need to make sure that I get enough? Iron is a mineral that helps to build red blood cells, muscle proteins, and healthy bones. Most importantly, iron helps the blood cells to carry the oxygen it needs for energy. During the teenage years, the need for iron increases. It is especially important for girls who have started menstruating. Getting the right amount of iron also improves performance in sports and in school too. How much iron do I need? Iron is measured in milligrams, and the amount you need will depend on your age, whether you or a guy or a girl, your particular body size and your lifestyle. In general, though, you can use these guidelines:
  • Girls age 9-13: 8 mg/day Girls age 14-18: 15 mg/day
What is anemia? Anemia is a condition in which you don't have enough red blood cells. The most common cause is not enough iron in your diet or losing iron because of heavy menstrual periods. With anemia, you may feel weak and tired a lot, and you may look pale. Your health care provider may recommend a multivitamin with iron if it looks like you are not getting enough. You are most at risk for anemia when you don't eat enough foods rich in iron. If you are already anemic, your health care provider will probably suggest an iron supplement. What can I do to make sure I get enough iron in the foods I eat?

8. Monkey Maddness - ANEMIA CAUSED BY ONIONS
Article on onion toxicity in monkeys, dogs and cats.
Written by Margaret A. Wissman
(This article was in the Simian, the SSA's monthly newsletter, some time ago.) As a veterinarian, I have known for many years that onions, whether fresh, cooked or dehydrated, can cause anemia in pets. I remember reading a case report years ago concerning a small dog that ate a good portion of a bag of fresh, whole onions one day while his owner was at work, and the dog was near death when discovered by his frantic owner. However, I continually read stories (including one in the most recent Simian Society Newsletter) about owners feeding onions to their monkeys, and I realize that most people have no idea of the dangers of feeding onions. So, I thought it would be a good idea to educate owners about onions.
Let's now cut through all this medical jargon. What exactly does happen when onions are consumed? Simply put, onions cause red blood cells to become unable to function properly, then causing them to rupture. This cause anemia.
What clinical signs will occur with onion toxicosis? The signs that you see will depend on the amount of onions consumed, the length of time they have been fed, and the size of the animal. Gums (mucous membranes) may appear pale if there is moderate or severe anemia/ If lots of RBCs have ruptured, there may be hemoglobin in the urine, causing it to appear reddish or brown, or the tissues may become jaundiced. Weakness, depression, rapid heart rate and rapid respiratory rate may be observed as a result of there not being enough oxygen reaching the tissues (hypoxia). Vomiting, decreased appetite and diarrhea may also occur. Blood tests taken by your veterinarian will show certain characteristics. Heinz-bodies can be seen on blood smears and the packed cell volume will be decreased, indicating anemia. As the body tries to replace the damaged blood cells, certain characteristics may also be seen in the blood. Hemoglobin may be seen in the urine.

According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), anemia affects approximately 3.4 million Americans, people of all ages and from all walks of life. Anemia affects approximately 3.4 million Americans, people of all ages and from all walks of life. The blood in our bodies is composed of three types of cells (red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets) that circulate throughout the body. Red blood cells contain hemoglobin (Hb), a red, iron-rich protein that carries oxygen from the lungs to all of the body's muscles and organs. Oxygen provides the energy the body needs for all of its normal activities. Anemia occurs when the number of red blood cells (or the Hb in them) falls below normal and the body gets less oxygen and therefore has less energy than it needs to function properly. Anemia may become worse if it is not treated, and it can lead to potentially serious, even life-threatening complications. When the number of red blood cells decreases, the heart works harder, pumping more blood to send more oxygen throughout the body. If the heart works too hard, it can develop a rapid heartbeat (tachycardia), and/or another serious condition known as left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), an enlargement of the heart muscle that in turn can lead to heart failure.

Blood cells Alternative names Return to top Anemia - sickle cell; Hemoglobin SS disease (Hb SS); Sickle cell disease Definition Return to top Sickle cell anemia is an inherited disease in which the red blood cells, normally disc-shaped, become crescent shaped. As a result, they function abnormally and cause small blood clots. These clots give rise to recurrent painful episodes called "sickle cell pain crises." Causes, incidence, and risk factors Return to top Sickle cell anemia is caused by an abnormal type of hemoglobin called hemoglobin S. Hemoglobin is a protein inside red blood cells that carries oxygen. Hemoglobin S, however, reduces the amount of oxygen inside the cells, distoring their shape. The fragile, sickle-shaped cells deliver less oxygen to the body's tissues, and can break into pieces that disrupt blood flow. Sickle cell anemia is inherited as an autosomal recessive trait , which means it occurs in someone who has inherited hemoglobin S from both parents. Sickle cell disease is much more common in certain ethnic groups, affecting approximately one out of every 500 African Americans. Someone who inherits hemoglobin S from one parent and normal hemoglobin (A) from the other parent will have

Parents Medical Problems
Anemia, one of the more common blood disorders, occurs when the number of healthy red blood cells decreases in the body. The disc-shaped red blood cells contain hemoglobin , a unique molecule that carries oxygen to the body's tissues. Anemia occurs for different reasons. These include:
  • increased destruction (break down) of red blood cells (RBCs)
  • increased blood loss from the body
  • inadequate production of red blood cells by the bone marrow
In some cases anemia results from an inherited disorder , whereas in other cases the condition is caused by something in a person's environment , such as a nutritional problem, infection, or exposure to a drug or toxin. Types of Anemia and Their Causes
Anemia Caused by Destruction of Red Blood Cells
Hemolytic ("hemo" means blood, "lytic" means destroying) anemia occurs when red blood cells are being destroyed prematurely and the bone marrow (the soft, spongy tissue inside bones that produces new blood cells) simply can't keep up with the body's demand for new cells. This can happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, infections or certain medications - such as antibiotics or antiseizure medicines - are to blame. In a condition known as autoimmune hemolytic anemia , the immune system mistakes red blood cells for foreign invaders and begins destroying them. Other children inherit defects in the red blood cells, which may involve the RBC's structure or the production of hemoglobin or RBC enzymes. Common forms of inherited hemolytic anemia include sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.
