Iron and folic acid supplements are the cornerstone for the prevention of anemia during pregnancy and one of the earliest preventive measures adopted in antenatal care.
Management of iron-deficiency anemia consists of a medical workup to identify possible blood loss site, iron supplementation, or nutritional counseling. 14,84,86,90 Iron supplementation during pregnancy is almost always required. To assess the use, side effects and discontinuation rates of iron preparations during pregnancy. Six hundred and twelve randomly selected postpartum women completed a questionnaire on iron supplement use in the second and third trimesters. Of the women (%) reported using iron supplements, were eligible for the study. The most common preparation was ferrous fumarate Cited by:
Iron is a mineral our bodies need. Iron deficiency is a condition resulting from not enough iron in the body. It is the most common nutritional deficiency and the leading cause in the US. Iron deficiency is caused due to increased iron deficiency from diseases, nutritional deficiency, or blood loss and the body's inability to intake or absorb iron. "Evidence about beneficial effects of iron supplementation during pregnancy on functional outcomes is inconclusive. Moreover, the theoretical possibility of adverse effects, such as oxidative damage, with administration of iron supplements during pregnancy has been raised." Between June and September , this study enrolled low.

For prevention they are only recommended in those with poor absorption, heavy menstrual periods, pregnancy, hemodialysis, or a diet low in iron.
Prevention may also be used in low birth weight status: US: OTC. Pregnancy increases iron requirements as it aids in production of increased blood volume and red blood cells for transfer of oxygen to the fetus.
2 If iron levels are low during pregnancy, there is an increased risk of preterm delivery or low birth weight. 2,17 In a study of 60 women who took an iron supplement during pregnancy, the mean birth.

It may also have benefits for by: Iron deficiency & supplementation in pregnancy About iron deficiency. Iron deficiency means the body is not getting enough iron. Iron is an essential mineral that helps blood carry oxygen through the body. The protein in the blood that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body is called hemoglobin.
Iron deficiency is the most common cause of anemia during pregnancy. To prevent iron deficiency anemia, routinely recommend iron supplementation at a low-dose, about 30 mg of elemental iron/day, for non-anemic pregnant women during the second and third.
The evidence on which to base a coherent policy of whether to routinely provide iron supplements for iron deficiency to pregnant women who are not overtly anemic—and if so, at what stage of pregnancy supplementation should begin and at what dosage—is unclear. Iron is one of the minerals in the human body.
If you do not have enough iron, your body cannot make hemoglobin, and you may develop anemia. One way of treating anemia is with oral iron supplements, including pills, capsules, drops, and extended-release tablets.
Anaemia during pregnancy is associated with a range of problems for both the mother and the baby.

First of all, please understand that a supplement is given to prevent deficiency and not to treat it. If the pregnant woman is iron deficient (confirmed by hemoglobin level, blood picture and iron store status), iron has to be given therapeuticall. The need for iron increases significantly during pregnancy, as maternal blood volume increases by nearly 50%.
Iron is critical for oxygen transport and healthy growth and development of Author: Jillian Kubala MS, RD. Iron supplementation during pregnancy deserves further examination as a measure to improve birth outcomes and reduce health care costs.
