  1. Hints for Iron Deficiency Anemia:
    • Microcytosis and hypochromia
    • Elevated RDW
    • Decreased retic count
    • Elevated platelet count
  2. Lab patterns of Iron Deficiency Anemia?
    • Fe low
    • TIBC high
    • % saturation low
    • Ferritin low
    • Soluble Transferrin Receptor Assay should be elevated with iron-deficiency states
  3. How much Fe do you need to replete stores in Fe-deficiency anemia?
    Need 200-250 mg of elemental iron daily to replete stores until serum Fe normalizes, and once H/H normalize, replace for 6 more months.
  4. Labs in Anemia of Chronic Disease:
    • Serum Fe: low
    • TIBC: low
    • Ferritin: high
    • % saturation: low/normal
    • Soluble transferrin receptor: Normal
    • Bone marrow assay: increased iron stores
