Iron-deficiency anemia is diagnosed by blood tests that should include a complete blood count (cbc) additional tests may be ordered to evaluate the levels of serum ferritin, iron, total iron-binding capacity, and/or transferrin. With iron deficiency anemia, red blood cells are smaller and paler in color than normal hematocrit this is the percentage of your blood volume made up by red blood cells normal levels are generally between 349 and 445 percent for adult women and 388 to 50 percent for adult men these values may change depending on your age hemoglobin.

Typically, the evaluation of the cause of anemia includes a complete blood cell count, peripheral smear, reticulocyte count, and serum iron indices the severity of anemia is based on the patient’s hemoglobin/hematocrit level iron deficiency anemia is characterized by microcytic, hypochromic erythrocytes and low iron stores.

Recall that the normal range for the hematocrit for a female is 37 - 47%, and the normal range for the hemoglobin level for a female is 12 - 16 g/100 ml describe hemoglobin and hematocrit values for the female with iron-deficiency anemia a) the hemoglobin was below normal, and the hematocrit was normal b) they were both below normal. Anemia low hemoglobin, low hematocrit, low red cell count and women (world health organization) efficacy and tolerability of intravenous ferric gluconate in the treatment of.
Iron deficiency is very common, especially among women and in people who have a diet that is low in iron the following groups of people are at highest risk for iron-deficiency anemia: women who menstruate, particularly if menstrual periods are heavy low hemoglobin (hg) and hematocrit.
