WHAT CAN CAUSE IRON DEFICIENCY?


Iron deficiency can be caused by different factors, with diet being an aspect that should always be considered. In addition to inadequate iron intake, it is also necessary to investigate possible causes of malabsorption and blood loss.


Iron absorption may be impaired in cases of inflammatory bowel diseases, atrophic gastritis, among others.


Already among the causes of iron loss, it is necessary to rule out gastric ulcers, hemorrhoids, parasites, that is, worms and tumors.


In women, a lack of iron also often occurs as a result of increased blood loss during menstruation or pregnancy.
