Relationship between obesity and iron deficiency anemia: is there a role of hepcidin?

Relationship between obesity and iron deficiency anemia: is there a role of hepcidin? Hematology. 2018 Jan 10;:1-7 Authors: Sal E, Yenicesu I, Celik N, Pasaoglu H, Celik B, Pasaoglu OT, Kaya Z, Kocak U, Camurdan O, Bideci A, Cinaz P Abstract OBJECTIVES: Iron deficiency is common in obese children although the underlying mechanism is unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between iron parameters, leptin, hepcidin and adiponectin levels in obese children. METHODS: A total of 237 children, ranging in age from 5 to 18 years, 180 with primary obesity and 57 healthy children and adolescents, were enrolled. Complete blood count, serum iron levels, iron-binding capacity, ferritin levels, leptin, hepcidin and adiponectin levels were studied. RESULTS: White blood cell and platelet count, iron-binding capacity, high-sensitive C-reactive protein, leptin and hepcidin values in the obese group were higher than those of the control group (p

Conclusion: We established reference values of SF and TSAT according to age and gender. The reference values for SF calculated in this study can be used to test the association between SF values and other defined diseases in Korean children and adolescents. PMID: 29662858 [PubMed]

Authors: Nasreddine L, Ayoub JJ, Al Jawaldeh A Abstract This situation analysis for the World Health Organization Eastern Mediterranean Region focuses on specific nutrition indicators, namely low birth weight, exclusive breastfeeding, under- and overnutrition (anthropometric indicators) and anaemia. The regional average prevalence of low birth weight and exclusive breastfeeding was estimated at 19.31% and 29.3%, respectively. Stunting, wasting and underweight had an average prevalence of 28%, 8.69% and 18%, respectively. Afghanistan, Djibouti, Pakistan, Sudan and Yemen had the highest burden of stunting (> 30%)....

Obesity an important cause of high output heart failure: Conventionally we have been taught that causes of high out put failure are anemia, thyrotoxicosis, beriberi and arteriovenous fistula. But modern day data is changing. A retrospective analysis of patients with high output heart failure from the cathlab of Mayo Clinic [1] showed that obesity was the commonest cause contributing to almost one third of cases. This was followed by liver disease and arteriovenous shunts contributing about one fourth of cases each, lung disease and (16%) and myeloproliferative disorders (8%). Of course some bias in these percentages ...

AbstractBackgroundUrban populations have grown globally alongside emerging simultaneous burdens of undernutrition and obesity. Yet, how heterogeneous urban environments are associated with this nutritional double burden is poorly understood.ObjectiveWe aimed to determine:1) the prevalence of the nutritional double burden and its components in urban, peri-urban, and rural areas of Bolivia; and2) the association of residence in these areas with the nutritional double burden and its components.DesignWe surveyed 3946 randomly selected households from 2 metropolitan regions of Bolivia. Census data and remotely sensed imagery we...

This paper reviews information on why the nutrition of older children (5 –9 years) and adolescents (10–19 years) is important and the consequences that it can have over generations. Developing countries still face a high burden of undernutrition and anemia, while the burden of overweight and obesity is on the rise in both developing and developed countries. There are evidence-based interventions which can improve the nutritional status and these include interventions for a balanced and diverse diet and micronutrient supplementation, especially iron and multiple micronutrient supplementation where there is suffi...
