Inappropriate Expression of Hepcidin is associated with Iron Refractory Anemia: Implications for the Anemia of Chronic Disease. Blood.
Anemia of chronic disease was identified as the most common cause of anemia in our patients as well as in other studies.
(19) Anemia of chronic disease is typically as a consequence of an inflammatory condition, an autoimmune or neoplastic condition, prolonged illness, trauma, chronic infection involving parasitic, fungal, bacterial, or viral loads, and, in the elderly or ill, polypharmacy.
[sup][6] Hepcidin, as a regulator of body iron stores, has been recently discovered to play a critical role in the pathogenesis of anemia of chronic disease. [sup][7]
Anemia of chronic disease is a prevalent, poorly understood condition that presents with a normocytic and normochromic (or occasionally microcytic and hypochromic) blood picture.
The soluble transferrin receptor is increased in iron deficiency anemia and nearly unchanged in anemia of chronic disease. Use of the soluble transferrin receptor could be useful to differentiate between these two types of anemia in IBD patients as well.
Evaluation of Systemic Markers Related To Anemia of Chronic Disease in the Peripheral Blood of Smokers and Non-Smokers with Chronic Periodontitis.
With a simple test, oral iron absorption test we can differentiate iron deficiency anemia from the anemia of chronic disease. The concentration of serum ferritin <100 ng/ml and transferrin saturation <20% may identify iron deficiency anemia (25).
Her past medical history was significant for hypertension, hyperlipidemia, gout and anemia of chronic disease. Eight months prior she had been admitted with chest pain.
Serum ferritin concentration is the most widely available measure of total body iron stores, but concentrations of serum ferritin may be increased by infection (inflammation), malignancy, liver disease, or anemia of chronic disease. If used to diagnose iron deficiency, serum ferritin concentration must be combined with simultaneous measurement of CRP to rule out inflammation.
Iron and the anemia of chronic disease: A review and strategic recommendations.
Anemia in the elderly can be attributed to a variety of causes including anemia of chronic disease (anemia of inflammation), nutritional deficiencies, renal disease, acute or chronic blood loss, hemolytic disorders, and others.
