Iron-Deficiency Anemia in IBD Children Correctable With Injection, According To New Study

Iron-Deficiency Anemia in IBD Children Correctable With Injection, According To New Study
IDAA new study entitled “Effectiveness and safety of ferric carboxymaltose treatment in children and adolescents with inflammatory bowel disease and other gastrointestinal diseases” published in October issue of BMC Gastroenterology reports positive results in correcting iron-deficiency anemia in IBD children with intravenous ferric carboxymaltose administration. Children with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) are at particular risk of developing anemia due to their high susceptibility to iron deficiency. This is caused by their high necessity for iron during growth but deficient dietary intake, accompanied by impaired absorption and enteric blood loss. Two types of anemia develop in IBD children – iron-deficiency anemia (IDA) and anemia of chronic disease (ACD). Therefore, iron supplementation is important when treating IBD children with IDA. However, due to the health issues associated with IBD, treatment with oral iron administration is not only challenging, but also frequently insufficient. In this study, the authors performed a retrospective analysis of intravenous ferric carboxymaltose (FCM) administration to children with IDB. Until now, there has not been much data on FCM application in children, and so this is the first study fo
