Answer: People in underdeveloped countries and pregnant women. It can come from poor diet as in most 3rd world countries or it can be attributed to blood loss from menstruation or high iron demands in pregnant women.
Answer: The main difference is that Iron-Deficiency Anemia is caused by lack of iron, and therefore low haemaglobin levels. Pernicious anamia is caused by a lack of vitimin B12 which aids the production and growth of red blood cells, therefore lowering the haemaglobin level, and both would have a lowered hematocrit level.
Answer: The main tool on which a blacksmith hammers hot iron or steel is an anvil. And the modern anvil is made of, or at least faced with, steel. This creates a hard steel work surface. To help shape the hot iron a blacksmith might use:
A die set
or any other hard material that would help shape the hot iron
Answer: Definition of Pig Iron: The term was derived from the method of casting the bars of iron in depressions or moulds formed in the sand floor adjacent to a furnace. These were connected to a runner (known as a sow) and when filled with metal the runner and the numerous smaller moulds were supposed to resemble a litter of suckling pigs, hence the term pig iron. pig iron is called pig iron because due to it shape and molds. When the iron come out from its mold due to it contain % of carbon and it look black pigs, when it come out of it mold it look like pigs standing in a group so it is called pig iron. answered by vsp the king
Answer: okay to answer this question... you can never get rid of any sickness... you will always have the fragments of the sickness in your cells and unless you get a awsome docter to replace each and every cell, but your cell has little fragments and will trap the sickness i the fragments of the cell and stays there forever....:) thanks for asking:)
Answer: It means that you should be getting more iron in your diet.
The human body conserves iron by recycling iron from old red blood cells to make hemoglobin for new red blood cells. However, a constant intake of new iron is required for optimum health.
Low iron levels may be caused by inadequate intake, by poor absorption, by parasites within the body, or by medical conditions that cause undiagnosed internal bleeding (polyps, ulcers). Those who give blood, or women who have excessive menstrual bleeding, or women who are pregnant or lactating may develop iron deficiency. There are also some medical conditions that prevent proper absorption of iron. Untreated, deficiency can lead to anemia.
Anemia is characterized by under-developed red blood cells that lack sufficient hemoglobin, reducing their oxygen-carrying capacity. Symptoms of iron deficiency may include : fatigue loss of stamina susceptibility to infections hair loss dizziness headaches brittle nails decreased mental concentration, apathy, or depression. * Iron deficiency in children is associated with learning disabilities and lower IQs.
An unusual neurological reaction to low iron is the behavioral abnormality called pica. Sufferers have subconscious cravings and will consume unsuitable materials such as dirt, clay, laundry starch, charcoal, paint chips, and other non-nutritive substances.
Answer: well iron is imperative for our health so i would suggest that you try to take in iron enriched foods or in other words try to get iron in your body ,well back to the question iron deficiency is when a person is lacking the amount of iron the person should have in there body they have sorry, explaining it wrong i meant when there not absorbing iron. there you have it hope i could help you out.
Answer: Iron deficiency develops in several stages. In the first stage, body iron requirement exceeds iron intake, causing progressive depletion of bone marrow iron stores. As iron reservoirs decrease, compensatory increases in absorption of dietary iron occur. During later stages, deficiency is severe enough to impair red blood cell biosynthesis, leading to anemia. Iron deficiency, if severe and prolonged, may cause dysfunction of iron-containing cellular enzymes, which may contribute to fatigue and loss of stamina via mechanisms independent of the anemia itself. Iron deficiency anemia must be differentiated from other types of microcytic anemia, such as anemia caused by deficient erythropoiesis or decreased red blood cell production due to other underlying causes. If tests exclude iron deficiency in a patient with microcytic anemia, then anemia of chronic disease, structural hemoglobin abnormalities (e.g., hemoglobinopathies), and congenital red blood cell membrane abnormalities are considered. Clinical laboratory studies of hemoglobin electrophoresis and HbA 2, as well as genetic testing (e.g., alpha-thalassemia), may help distinguish these entities.
Answer: Iron deficiency anemia means that you have low red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen and give you energy among other things. You know you have it when you get your hemoglobin checked (they prick your finger). It depends on the person, normally I think you have to take iron to fix it but as soon as you stop it will lower again. Unless it was just from a poor diet those past few days..
