A number of studies have been conducted on the association between the socioeconomic status (SES) and the prevalence of anaemia
CoMMiTMenT includes clinical partners and builds a strong relationship with the European Network for Rare and Congenital Anaemias
The resulting anaemia
, called pernicious anaemia
, tends to run in families and is more common in women and in people with other autoimmune disorders.
Patients on cancer therapy or on immunosuppressive treatment and already diagnosed cases of aplastic anaemia
were not included in the study.
Prevalence of anaemia
in all the groups is higher in India as compared to other developing countries (1).
is the result of excessive blood loss (acutely, i.
On admission, the patient had a macrocytic anaemia
(MCV 108 fL and Hb 106 g/L), with target cells and toxic changes seen in the blood film.
is a cardinal feature in patients with bacterial infections, particularly infections lasting longer than a month.
Children of various age groups presenting with clinical profile like symptomatic anaemia
, haemolytic anaemia
, haematological malignancy, acute sickle cell crisis and acute blood loss of more than 30 percent of blood volume, patients with thrombocytopenia or platelet function defects, consumptive coagulopathy, factor VIII deficiency and Von Willebrand disease were taken from the total admission to PICU during the study period.
Methods: In the antenatal clinic all pregnant women were screened for anaemia
But it is to be remembered that these figures pertain only to anaemias
solely due to nutritional causes.
Almost all anaemias
are associated with abnormalities in the size, shape, color, distribution or intracytoplasmic content of the red cells.
Hence the findings of our study are in accordance with the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 111, which classifies IDA with other nutritional anaemias
, a classification more applicable to the third world countries7.
Thus, the nutrient-rich traditional diet and lifestyle may protect Inuit from nutritional anaemias
12) There is currently a call for the use of other surrogates for ascertaining average glycemic control in pregnancy, elderly, non-Hispanic blacks, alcoholism, in diseases associated with postprandial hyperglycemia, genetic states associated with hyperglycation, iron deficiency anaemia
, haemolytic anaemias
, variant haemoglobin states, chronic liver disease, and end-stage renal disease (ESRD).
