2. Iron & Anemia - Ask The Dietitian
Got questions about Iron deficiency anemia? Ask Joanne Larsen, Registered Dietitian and nutrition counselor. Iron anemia. I am a 33 year old married mother of one You have iron deficiency

I am a 33 year old married mother of one. I have what I feel is an embarrassing and possibly life threatening disorder. Some years ago I was diagnosed as being anemic. The iron level was so low that the doctor asked if I ate or craved anything unusual. I told him that I crave and chew ice quite often. The doctor explained that this was a pica and I should stop chewing the ice because it was effecting my body's ability to absorb iron. What I did not tell the doctor is that I crave and chew plain white paper (typing paper). I have done this since I was a teenager and chew about 2 pages per day. I have never discussed this problem with anyone. Can you help me with my questions: Have you ever heard of a pica and of someone craving paper? Is this detrimental to my health? I fear that I have a large quantity of paper or chemicals stored somewhere in my body as a result of this disorder? Is there anything I can do to stop the paper and ice cravings?

Approach to the Patient with Anemia
Author: Márcia Datz , Pediatric Resident University of São Paulo - Brazil
Anemia is a commonly encountered clinical condition that is caused by an acquired or hereditary abnormality of red blood cells (RBC) or its precursors, or may be a manifestation of an nonhematologic disorder.
Anemia is defined as a decrease in the circulating RBC mass and a corresponding decrease in the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood.
Normal values of the hemogram: TEST WOMEN MEN Ht (%) 36-48 40-52 Hg (g/dl) 12-16 13,5-17,7 Hem 4,0-5,4 4,5-6,0 VCM 80-100 80-100 A decrease in any of this values (Ht, Hg, Hem) is called anemia. They can be altered by the plasmatic volumes.Diference between women and men values are due to androgen hormones.
Signs and Symptoms
The clinical manifestations vary with the age, degree and rapidity of onset, presence of subjacent illness and other factors. Mild anemia are often assymptomatic. The main symptoms are exercise dyspnea, fatigue, palpitation, pica (consumption of substances such as ice, starch or clay, frequently found in iron deficiency anemia), syncope (particularly following exercise) and bounding pulse. Dizziness, headache, syncope, tinnitus or vertigo, irritability, difficulty sleeping or concentrating are more frequent in severe chronic anemia.

7. Patient Information
Compares normal red blood cells to those affected by this disorder. Tells who may be born with the condition and how it affects the lives of those who have it.
Sickle Cell Anemia Sickle Cell anemia is a group of inherited red blood cell disorders. Normal red blood cells are round like doughnuts, and they move through small blood tubes in the body to deliver oxygen. Sickle red blood cells become hard, sticky and shaped like sickles used to cut wheat. When these hard and pointed red cells go through the small blood tube, they clog the flow and break apart. This can cause pain, damage and a low blood count, or anemia.
What makes the red cell sickle?
There is a substance in the red cell called hemoglobin that carries oxygen inside the cell. One little change in this substance causes the hemoglobin to form long rods in the red cell when it gives away oxygen. These rigid rods change the red cell into a sickle shape instead of the round shape.
How do you get sickle cell anemia or trait?
You inherit the abnormal hemoglobin from your parents, who may be carriers with sickle cell trait or parents with sickle cell disease. You can not catch it. You are born with the sickle cell hemoglobin and it is present for life. If you inherit only one sickle gene, you have sickle cell trait. If you inherit two sickle cell genes you have sickle cell disease. Is Sickle Cell only in African Americans?

Parents Medical Problems
Anemia, one of the more common blood disorders, occurs when the number of healthy red blood cells decreases in the body. The disc-shaped red blood cells contain hemoglobin , a unique molecule that carries oxygen to the body's tissues. Anemia occurs for different reasons. These include:
  • increased destruction (break down) of red blood cells (RBCs)
  • increased blood loss from the body
  • inadequate production of red blood cells by the bone marrow
In some cases anemia results from an inherited disorder , whereas in other cases the condition is caused by something in a person's environment , such as a nutritional problem, infection, or exposure to a drug or toxin.
Types of Anemia and Their Causes
Anemia Caused by Destruction of Red Blood Cells
Hemolytic ("hemo" means blood, "lytic" means destroying) anemia occurs when red blood cells are being destroyed prematurely and the bone marrow (the soft, spongy tissue inside bones that produces new blood cells) simply can't keep up with the body's demand for new cells. This can happen for a variety of reasons. Sometimes, infections or certain medications - such as antibiotics or antiseizure medicines - are to blame. In a condition known as autoimmune hemolytic anemia , the immune system mistakes red blood cells for foreign invaders and begins destroying them. Other children inherit defects in the red blood cells, which may involve the RBC's structure or the production of hemoglobin or RBC enzymes. Common forms of inherited hemolytic anemia include sickle cell anemia, thalassemia, and glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency.

Aplastic Anemia Answer Book Aplastic Anemia - The Disease Aplastic anemia is a rare but extremely serious disorder that results from the unexplained failure of the bone marrow to produce blood cells. In all probability you had never heard of this disease until the time of diagnosis. We hope that this pamphlet helps you deal with your situation by providing basic information about aplastic anemia and the various treatment options. This pamphlet is not intended as a substitute for the advice of a physician. It is important that you ask questions and learn as much as you can about this disease. By contacting the Aplastic Anemia Foundation of America, you can be connected with others in your same situation and receive information free of charge. There are AAFA chapters around the country. You do not need to be alone in dealing with aplastic anemia. Normal Bone Marrow Function The central portion of bones is filled with a spongy red tissue called bone marrow. The bone marrow is essentially a factory producing the cells of the blood: red cells that carry oxygen from the lungs to all areas of the body, white cells that fight infection by attacking and destroying germs, and platelets that control bleeding by forming blood clots in areas of injury. Continuous production of blood cells is necessary all through life because each cell has a finite life span once it leaves the bone marrow and enters the blood: red cells120 days, platelets6 days, and white cellsone day or less!

Lets define the terms of the disease one at a time. "Autoimmune" literally means the immunity against the self."Hemolytic" is the destruction of red blood cells. "Anemia" is a clinical sign, not a disease. Anemia is defined as a decrease in the number of red blood cells (RBC's) or the amount of hemoglobin, resulting in a decrease in the oxygen- carrying capacity of the blood. spherocyte occurs. Finding spherocytes on a blood smear almost guarantees that some form of hemolytic anemia is occurring. Since this disorder does not stop the production of red blood cells, there are usually immature red blood cells in the bloodstream which can be detected on the blood smears as well.

13. Monkey Maddness - ANEMIA CAUSED BY ONIONS
Article on onion toxicity in monkeys, dogs and cats.
Written by Margaret A. Wissman
(This article was in the Simian, the SSA's monthly newsletter, some time ago.) As a veterinarian, I have known for many years that onions, whether fresh, cooked or dehydrated, can cause anemia in pets. I remember reading a case report years ago concerning a small dog that ate a good portion of a bag of fresh, whole onions one day while his owner was at work, and the dog was near death when discovered by his frantic owner. However, I continually read stories (including one in the most recent Simian Society Newsletter) about owners feeding onions to their monkeys, and I realize that most people have no idea of the dangers of feeding onions. So, I thought it would be a good idea to educate owners about onions.
Let's now cut through all this medical jargon. What exactly does happen when onions are consumed? Simply put, onions cause red blood cells to become unable to function properly, then causing them to rupture. This cause anemia.
What clinical signs will occur with onion toxicosis? The signs that you see will depend on the amount of onions consumed, the length of time they have been fed, and the size of the animal. Gums (mucous membranes) may appear pale if there is moderate or severe anemia/ If lots of RBCs have ruptured, there may be hemoglobin in the urine, causing it to appear reddish or brown, or the tissues may become jaundiced. Weakness, depression, rapid heart rate and rapid respiratory rate may be observed as a result of there not being enough oxygen reaching the tissues (hypoxia). Vomiting, decreased appetite and diarrhea may also occur. Blood tests taken by your veterinarian will show certain characteristics. Heinz-bodies can be seen on blood smears and the packed cell volume will be decreased, indicating anemia. As the body tries to replace the damaged blood cells, certain characteristics may also be seen in the blood. Hemoglobin may be seen in the urine.

Anemias Caused By Blood Loss
Anemia caused by rapid massive hemorrhage.
Etiology and Pathogenesis
Because marrow reserve is limited, anemia may result from massive hemorrhage associated with spontaneous or traumatic rupture or incision of a large blood vessel, erosion of an artery by lesions (eg, peptic ulcer, neoplasm), or failure of normal hemostasis. Immediate effects depend on the duration and volume of hemorrhage. Sudden loss of 1/3 of blood volume may be fatal, but as much as 2/3 may be lost slowly over 24 h without such risk. Symptoms are caused by a sudden decrease in blood volume and by subsequent hemodilution with a decrease in the O -carrying capacity of the blood.
Symptoms and Signs
The pace of the hemorrhage determines the degree of symptoms. Faintness, dizziness, thirst, sweating, weak and rapid pulse, and rapid respiration (at first deep, then shallow) may occur. Orthostatic hypotension is common. BP may at first rise slightly because of reflex arteriolar constriction, then gradually fall. If bleeding continues, BP may fall and death may ensue (see also Ch. 204
