Some people have lower supplies of iron in their blood than others. These groups include:
- Those who have experienced significant blood loss from cancers, ulcers, and heavy periods, for example.
- Those who eat a diet that is very low in iron.
- Those who take medicines that affect the body’s ability to use iron to make hemoglobin. These include aspirin, heparin, and Coumadin.
- Those who have a condition that uses up more iron, such as kidney failure or pregnancy.
A variety of medical reasons can cause low iron levels, so a doctor will also check someone’s blood for the types of iron present, to ensure that it is the lack of iron that is causing the anemia. If so, the condition is known as iron-deficiency anemia. An iron infusion may be given if a person’s blood counts are so low that taking iron supplements or increasing their daily intake of iron-containing foods would be ineffective or too slow in increasing their iron levels.
Some people, such as those with inflammatory bowel disease, cannot take an oral iron supplement and may benefit from an iron infusion.
