Understanding Iron Deficiency Anemia

Anemia occurs when the body undergoes a shortage of red blood cells healthy and function properly. In this page, anemia due to iron deficiency will be explored further in.

Iron is required the body to produce red blood cell component known as hemoglobin. Red blood cells needed by the body to store and transports oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the organ.In addition, the red blood cells also play a role in the disposal of carbon dioxide from body cellsin the lungs. If the human body's lack of red blood cells, the spread of oxygen will be disturbed.
Iron deficiency anemia is the condition of lacking nutrients common in people of all ages, including children. Most cases of anemia occurred in a still-developing countries includingIndonesia. Iron deficiency anemia is the most common type of anemia.

Anemia In Indonesia

Indonesia is a country with a high enough level of anemia cases. Iron deficiency has become one of the largest nutrition problems in Indonesia. Children, pregnant women and women who are athighest risk of fertile period suffering from anemia. The following are some causes of anemia inIndonesia:

Malanutrisi or malnutrition is the number one cause of anemia in Indonesia. The intake of ironpeople Indonesia is still lacking, mainly sourced from animal nutrition. Rice is the main food ingredients into everyday people Indonesia, whereas vegetables and meat is also requiredbecause it has a high iron content. The diversity of the food menu has an important role in ironintake is sufficient.
Tea and coffee drinking habits among the people of Indonesia also has strong in high rates ofanemia in Indonesia. Tea and coffee can contain substances that inhibit iron absorption by the human body.
Indonesia is also included in the Group of countries with a high Thalassemia sufferers.Thalassaemia is a genetic disease or offspring that results in the sufferer experiencing shortage of hemoglobin and red blood cells. This often leads to the occurrence of conditions of anemia.
In Indonesia, many people are taking any medication antasida due to problems with heartburn orstomach acid. Antasida that is consumed before meals will reduce the production of stomach acid, but it is precisely to reduce the absorption of iron.

Women who experience excessive menstruation are less likely to suffer from anemia. The number of wasted blood is what causes the appearance of anaemia in women duringchildbearing.

Anemia is also common in pregnant women.During pregnancy, iron needs of women is increasing because of the fetus in the womb helps absorb iron and vitamins in order to grownormally.
Symptoms That Appear As A Result Of Iron Deficiency Anemia

The level of anemia depends upon how fast the body iron reserves are declining. There aresufferers who have almost all the symptoms while there are some who just feel tired. Here arethe symptoms of anemia are common:

Easily tired or faster
Less energy
Pale face
Shortness of breath
Dizziness and headaches
Cold feet and hands
Tingling sensations in the feet

If you experience the above symptoms, please see a doctor to make sure the diagnosis ofanemia.
Treatment and treatment of iron deficiency Anemia

Consuming iron-Enhancer supplements made to increase iron levels in the body as one of the treatment of anemia. Iron intake through food consumption also needs to be improved for the sake of keeping reserves and a normal iron level. There are some food sources of iron are very nice, for example:

Chicken livers and beef liver
Beans, such as black beans, green beans and red beans
Tofu and tempe
Boga bahari or sea food such as fish, oysters and clams
Dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach and broccoli
Lean red meat such as beef and mutton
Dried fruits such as raisins and apricots

In order to maximize the absorption of iron, intake of vitamin C is also required. Consumption of foods high in iron substance along with the source of vitamin C such as oranges, Kiwis and tomatoes.

Basically, the cause of anemia vary. In order not to develop into a chronic condition, the maincause of the note and dealt with. If left, the anemia is generally manageable, it can impact the long term on the body of the sufferer.

Iron Deficiency Anemia Complications

If iron deficiency anemia are not handled properly, could ultimately lead to a complication of another disease. Iron deficiency affects badly to the human immune system. This is what makesyou more susceptible to other diseases.

Iron deficiency anemia can also cause the onset of heart failure, which is when the heartdecreases performance and could not pump blood to all parts of the body well.

For pregnant women, anemia increases the risk of complications in the mother and the fetus.Complications that can occur for example was a miscarriage, fetal growth is slow or not normal and was born prematurely.
