Iron deficiency anemia: what is it and how to treat it?
Depending on what is the iron deficiency in the body, there are three degrees of anemia: light, medium and heavy.
Anemia of mild degree
Anemia of mild degree is characterized by a hemoglobin level in the blood within 90-110 g / l. At this time, iron deficiency anemia is in the latent stage. It can last for a long time. Abrupt transition to anemia of moderate severity does not occur. Sometimes to identify the lack of iron can only be on the analysis of blood, but it will be necessary to study the concentration of serum iron, since hemoglobin will remain within normal limits.
