Abstract

Anemia is one of the nutritional difficulties in third world (developing countries). Various factors including ecological play a role in causing anemia. This study was set up to determine iron deficiency anemia and anemia due to iron deficiency among the groups of women (Fars-native, Turkaman and Immigrant Sistanee) in villages around Gorgan. According to earlier studies it was decided to study on 415 women age 18-35 year (Fats-native = 128, Turkaman = 128 and Sistanee = 103). The sample population was chosen from 20 villages using random-clustering method. Hematological indexes and biochemical tests (serum iron and TIBC) were determined. In this study the Transferrine saturation rate <16% and Hb concentration <12 g dL-1 was considered as iron deficiency and anemia respectively. The combination of iron deficiency and anemia was considered to be as iron deficiency anemia taking notice of reference value for the pregnant woman. The prevalence of iron deficiency in Fars- native, Turkaman and Sistanee women 33.6, 47.6 and 26.2%, respectively. The rate of anemia on the same women 27.7, 18.75 and 22.33% and iron deficiency anemia were 15.6, 11.9 and 11.3%, respectively. χ 2-Test showed a meaningful in regard to iron deficiency and anemia among the three groups of women (p<0.005) was seen. A significant statistical correlation was seen between Hb and MCHC in Fars- native (r = 0.457, p<0.001), Turkaman (r = 0.294, p<0.01) and Sistanee women (r = 0.467, p<0.001). This correlation is strong enough in Turkaman race. From the results of this study it can be concluded that in addition to prevalence of anemia its characteristic also is different among the three groups of women. It should be added that anemia is one of the women nutritional problems in the village around Gorgan.
