    Transcript

    00:01 So in a nutshell, iron deficiency anemia is the most common nutritional deficiency worldwide.

    00:07 Babies begin to store their iron during their last 3 months in-utero.

    00:11 After they're born, the stores are going to wane by about 5 to 6 months of age.

    00:16 Breast milk has a very low amount of bioavailable iron so supplementation with iron-rich cereal or foods is recommended starting at 5 to 6 months of age.

    00:26 Lab values in patients with iron deficiency anemia include a microcytic hypochromic anemia, low serum iron, low serum ferritin, low transferrin and a high TIBC because that's where that iron's gonna bind.

    00:42 Iron replacement can be through foods, oral supplementation or parenteral routes.

    00:00 Thank you for watching this lecture on iron deficiency anemia.
