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

AbstractPurposeEnd-stage renal disease (ESRD) is associated with increased cardiovascular risk factors, electrolyte imbalances, and iron deficiency anemia. These factors may increase the risk of adverse outcomes in patients undergoing panniculectomy. There is a paucity of data regarding outcomes in patients with ESRD undergoing panniculectomy. The purpose of this study is to investigate whether ESRD is associated with increased rate of complications following a panniculectomy.MethodThe Nationwide Inpatient Sample database (2006 –2011) was used to identify patients who underwent a panniculectomy. Among this cohort, pa...

cca J Abstract INTRODUCTION: Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is a predictor of mortality in hemodialysis. It takes a very high proportion among cardiovascular complications. OBJECTIVE: It was to determine the frequency of LVH and identify its associated factors among chronic hemodialysis patients of CNHU-HKM. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional, descriptive and analytical, which took place 1st February to 31st October 2014. The sample consisted of patients aged over 15 years, chronic hemodialysis for at least 3 months. LVH is defined by a Left Ventricular Mass Index (LVMI)>1...

Abstract The term 'economy class syndrome' refers to the occurrence of thrombotic events during long-haul flights that mainly occur in passengers in the economy class of the aircraft. This syndrome results from several factors related to the aircraft cabin (immobilization, hypobaric hypoxia and low humidity) and the passenger (body mass index, thrombophilia, oral contraceptives or hormone replacement therapy, cancer), acting together to predispose to excessive blood coagulation, which can result in venous thromboembolism. Several risk factors, both genetic and acquired, are associated with venous thromboembolism. The most ...

ConclusionThough many bariatric patients may carry a presumptive diagnosis of celiac disease, a small percentage of these meet AGA diagnostic criteria. RYGB appears safe in this population with comparable weight loss in non-celiac counterparts. Increased attention to vitamin D levels may be warranted post-operatively.

This study sought to investigate IDA in Pakistani women. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Secondary analysis was performed using the National Nutrition Survey in Pakistan 2011- 2012. We used a pre-structured instrument to collect socio demographic, reproductive and nutritional data on women. We also collected anthropometric measurements and blood samples for micronutrient deficiencies. Univariate and multivariate logistic regression were used to analyse the data. RESULTS: A total of 7491 non-pregnant women aged between 15-49 years were included in the analysis. The prevalence of IDA was 18.1%. In the multivariate regres...

This study aims to explore the relationship of anemia and iron status with different body size phenotypes in adult Chinese population. Using information on iron status-related parameters and lifestyle data from 8462 participants of the 2009 wave of China Health and Nutrition Survey (2009 CHNS), we performed multivariable logistic regression analyses to estimate the odds ratios (ORs) for the risk of anemia and iron parameters according to different body size phenotypes. Participants with higher body mass index (BMI) had a lower anemia prevalence with significant trends in both metabolic status groups (P
