Q: 

anemia and iron deficiency

A: anemia is defined (according to the WHO) as a condition where hemoglobin level is under 12 g/dL (for women) or under 13 g/dL (for men). anemia is one of the most common pathologic conditions in people. It is very common in kids under 5, pregnant women, women during the reproductive period, women in climax, older people etc. Symptoms of anemia are various but not specific. Symptoms depend a lot from the speed of anemiaís development. Acute anemia has more visible symptoms than chronic. anemia that develops slowly has no symptoms because of the organismís adaptation until hemoglobin drops under 9 g/dL when symptoms usually occur. Symptoms that...
Q: 

iron deficiency

A: Dear Reader, iron is an essential part of blood. A constant supply of iron is important for the continual production of new red blood cells. Red blood cells contain hemoglobin, a complex protein-iron compound that carries oxygen from the lungs to all of the body''s cells. If your blood levels of iron are low, your body will have trouble maintaining a normal level of hemoglobin. As a result, you can develop iron deficiency anemia. The symptoms of iron deficiency anemia include: fatigue irritability headaches pale skin color and/or eye...

Q: 

  iron deficiency

A: Hello and welcome.Did you get your peripheral smear also done if it didn''t show any abnormal or nucleatedred blood cells than probably it can be due to decreased absorption if iron due to decreased intake of vitaminC(Vitamin C aides in iron absorption).There are risk factors related to blood loss like peptic ulcer disease,long term aspirin use, or colon cancer.Vegetarians are at risk of developing anemia.This usually occursbecause they don''t eat meat, (especially red meat)which is high in iron.They can consume spinach andbrocolli which are high in iron content.Excessive consumption of tea and caffeine also decrease ironabsorption.Please...


Q: 

CFS and iron deficiency

A: Well, you know if you are lazy or not. If you''re worried about it, then I''d say you are not lazy.  I used to be a workaholic.  Then I got CFS and was told I was lazy, a hypochrondriac, etc.  Too bad.  Those people didn''t know me when. Have your doctors discovered what the reason for your iron deficiency is? Have they categorized you as anemic, and if so a specific anemia like sickle-cell or anything?...


Q: 

Does iron deficiency Affect My Period?

A: Yes. It can cause your period to be heavier than normal and to last longer.   I have IDA and I also get really bad cramping, bad spotting before and after I start my period, and blood clots (sometimes I have none, but sometimes I have more than the average person and they are huge and can actually be quite painful!). TMI?   I''m sure there are other side effects but I am having trouble finding any websites with good information.   The Tyra Show (Tyra Banks the supermodel''s talk show) actually JUST did a show on periods and iron def anemia and it''s effects came up. Try looking at the website for the show and maybe you can watch part of the segment or even find some other links and information. Good luck!...
Q: 

I bruise easily (I am clumsy and always bumping my legs and arms on things) and I have noticed that when I cut myself even slightly it takes a long time to heal. I also scar from things like cat scratches. I know part of this is skin, but as far as the bruising goes, what could THAT be? One of my friends mentioned an iron deficiency. Is there any truth to this? If so, what are good sources of iron besides supplements, and red meat (which I refuse to eat in large quantities due to its effect on my health?)

A: Hi - I''m not a medical professional but I do know that a symptom of iron deficiency anemia can be bruising. As you mentioned both anorexia and PCOS, these could be logical suspects for the anemia. You should really go to your doctor and get some thorough blood work lab tests done. That''s the only real way to know what''s going on. Hello Oshinn, Bruising can be a sign of serious and not as serious underlying conditions. Obviously, if you are sustaining bruising without any physical impact, that is something to take note of and consult with your physician on. You mentioned that you are always bumping yourself (me too!), therefore I am assuming that your concern is that you bruise too...


Q: 

iron defficiency anemia problems Help!!!

A: Hi Shane, I''m in exactly the same boat at the moment. Mine is caused by Colitis, which is a bowel disease that causes malabsorption and internal bleeding. I can''t take any of the oral pills/liquids they prescribe as they make me extremely ill. I was told a couple of months ago that I may need a blood transfusion, but I thought I''d try and get it sorted myself. I''m taking a supplement called Spatone. It comes from a natural water supply from Wales which is rich in easily absorbed iron. It comes in sachets, boxes of 28. I take two a day, with the occasional day off. It seems to be a lot gentler on the stomach than the stuff you get prescribed. Give it a go. You can get it from health food shops and some chemists, or you can order it online. I did try Floradix,...
