The treatment of anemia depends on its cause. Patients with underlying iron-deficient anemia should be treated or referred to a specialist (eg gynecologist, gastroenterologist) for treatment.deficiency anemia are global health problems and common medical conditions seen in everyday clinical practice.
Iron is vital for biological functions, such as breathing, energy production, DNA synthesis, and cell proliferation.
Iron deficiency refers to the reduction of iron stores and precedes the occurrence of iron deficiency anemia.
Iron deficiency anemia is a more severe condition in which low levels of iron are associated with anemia and the presence of small cellular red blood cells.
The diagnosis of anemia is based on the patient's symptoms and blood tests. Blood tests refer to hemoglobin, hematocrit, and the number of red blood cells (per cubic centimeter or millet of blood). Also, the status of iron stores in the body can be measured by measuring ferritin. With these blood tests it can be determined Per os treatment: The dosage of elemental iron required to treat anemia due to iron deficiency in adults is 120 mg per day for three months. An increase in hemoglobin by 1g / dl after one month of treatment shows an adequate response to treatment and confirms the diagnosis. In adults, treatment should be continued for three months after correction of anemia to allow replenishment of iron stores.
Patient noncompliance may be an obstacle to oral therapy due to the occurrence of gastrointestinal side effects such as epigastric discomfort, nausea, diarrhea and constipation. These effects can be reduced when iron is taken with meals but its absorption can be reduced by 40%.
In addition, taking medications such as proton pump inhibitors and agents that reduce gastric acid hypersecretion (eg chronic atrophic gastritis, recent gastrectomy or abdominal incision) reduce iron absorption.

Fatigue is one of the most frequent and disabling symptoms in multiple sclerosis (MS). Central, psychological, and peripheral factors may contribute to the occurrence of fatigue.
The type species of GYROVIRUS, a small, non-enveloped DNA virus originally isolated from contaminated vaccines in Japan. It causes chicken infectious anemia and may possibly play a key role in hemorrhagic anemia syndrome, anemia dermatitis, and blue wing disease.
A state arrived at through prolonged and strong contraction of a muscle. Studies in athletes during prolonged submaximal exercise have shown that muscle fatigue increases in almost direct proportion to the rate of muscle glycogen depletion. Muscle fatigue in short-term maximal exercise is associated with oxygen lack and an increased level of blood and muscle lactic acid, and an accompanying increase in hydrogen-ion concentration in the exercised muscle.
Viral disease of horses caused by the equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV; INFECTIOUS ANEMIA VIRUS, EQUINE). It is characterized by intermittent fever, weakness, and anemia. Chronic infection consists of acute episodes with remissions.
A common nonarticular rheumatic syndrome characterized by myalgia and multiple points of focal muscle tenderness to palpation (trigger points). Muscle pain is typically aggravated by inactivity or exposure to cold. This condition is often associated with general symptoms, such as sleep disturbances, fatigue, stiffness, HEADACHES, and occasionally DEPRESSION. There is significant overlap between fibromyalgia and the chronic fatigue syndrome (FATIGUE SYNDROME, CHRONIC). Fibromyalgia may arise as a primary or secondary disease process. It is most frequent in females aged 20 to 50 years. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1494-95)
A rare congenital hypoplastic anemia that usually presents early in infancy. The disease is characterized by a moderate to severe macrocytic anemia, occasional neutropenia or thrombocytosis, a normocellular bone marrow with erythroid hypoplasia, and an increased risk of developing leukemia.
