The economics of iron deficiency. One efficient way to address lack of iron supply and bioavailability of iron in diets is iron fortification [34].

Iron deficiency anemia compromises a child’s ability to learn, further compromises its future prospects and, in aggregate terms, hinders the development of the population. According to a review on iron fortification of wheat flour, “most current iron fortification programs are likely to be ineffective. Cochrane Database of Systematic ReviewsIssue 7. Poverty Action Lab Paper No. For example, the Food Fortification Initiative found evidence that suggests, but does definitively conclude, that anemia prevalence has significantly decreased in countries which utilize micronutrient fortification of flour while has not changed in countries that do not [9].

A review on bioavailability of different iron compounds used in food fortification is available [17]. Another option to prevent and treat anemia is iron supplementation. R10 [31] all activities to improve health should be informed on evidence therefore more effectively strengthening public health and improving health care outcomes.

Another study looked at the effects of iron fortification of wheat and corn flour and found that fortification had a ‘protective effect’ against gestational anemia [10].

Effect of iron-fortified foods on hematologic and biological outcomes: Iron fortification may help to reduce iron deficiency anemia, which can have positive development effects across populations including improved cognitive and academic performance as well as decreased child birth defects, maternal and child mortality rates.

For school age children, this type of anemia also decreases school participation [8].

The study found that the “hemoglobin concentrations in both treatment groups were not significantly different” but hemoglobin levels were lower in the comparison groups with iron supplementation [19].

In summary, there is a potential for efficient, viable conquer of iron deficiency and lack of iron ferrooenica which can result in improved health and development.

Cochrane Database of Systematic ReviewsIssue 6. Although iron deficiency is the most common cause, other vitamin and mineral deficiencies, chronic inflammation, parasitic infections, and inherited disorders fisiopatoologia all cause anemia.

It is critical to diagnose the cause of iron deficiency for appropriate treatment. Alexandria Kristensen-Cabrera was the lead author and organized the case study through interviews with Dr. Possible side effects of iron include diarrhea, constipation, and nausea with higher doses [24]. However, iron overload due to extended iron supplement ingestion or fortification of flour is very rare [22][23][24].

Investment in preventing and managing micronutrient malnutrition ferropfnica in improved health, a reduction in child and maternal mortality, and better earnings with a ‘benefit-to-cost ratio’ of almost 13 to 1 [2].
