Bowel resection, bacterial overgrowth Occult gastrointestinal blood loss Frequent: Interpretation of laboratory tests is included, from the simplest blood count, routine biochemistry to the more specific iron metabolism, vitamin B12, folic acid, reticulocytes, erythropoietin, bone marrow examination and Schilling test.

Blood cells and the CBC 2. In men and postmenopausal women, the bigger concern should be to rule out the presence of occult bleeding. This article has been cited by other articles in PMC. Marrow biopsy is not usually performed just to measure the M: The most probable causes of microcytic anemia are IDA, thalassemia or thalassemia trait.

The severity of clinical symptoms bears less relationship to clasificadion severity of the anemia than to the length of time over which the condition develops.

Backwell Scientific Publication; Normocytic anemia The fundamental question in normocytic anemia is to recognize the causes and susceptibility to treatment as soon as possible. Low hematocrit is a subrogate value for anemia, but it is not measured directly by the hematological analyzer.

Pitiriasis Rosada de Gibert. Moreover, anemia is one of the leading sings in many diseases or is the first evidence of disease observed in routine blood cell enumeration. An anamnesis directed towards the characteristics of menstrual bleeding, although a subjective criterion, may be useful for distinguishing a subgroup of women without excessive genital bleeding, who require direct assessment of occult bleeding, followed by gastrointestinal exploration if positive. The first one is the high frequency of anemia in bowel disease, and the second is the opportunity to diagnose a malignant disease before it is too advanced[ 9 – 11 ].


In cases of accelerated rbc destruction, the capacity of the liver to capture bilirubin is saturated, and anemiaz concentration of ee bilirubin in serum increases, clasifficacion to the point of producing clinical jaundice.

The links between anemia and digestive system are strong and multiple. Enzymatic diagnosis in non-spherocytic hemolytic anemia.

Classification of anemia for gastroenterologists

Faced with microcytic anemia, the three main diagnostic possibilities include iron deficiency anemia IDAthalassemia, and anemia of chronic disorders ACD. Published online Oct 7. Frequency of nonthalassemic causes. Even keeping in mind the precedent data is convenient to make a careful evaluation of macrocytosis in every patient, to rule out any underlying pathology. MCHC increases only in a few rare diseases such as hereditary spherocytosis, and therefore, its practical utility is scarce.

Recent developments in the anemia of chronic disease. Aerobic respiration, for all the complexity of the chemical reactions of intermediary metabolism, simply boils down to the body’s need to find something to do with the spare electron left over from the destruction of the glucose molecule. RDW and iron metabolism are clues to differentiate between these processes in the initial step, as has been mentioned above. It should always be borne in mind that MCV is an average value and therefore does not provide information about the homogeneity of anemiss erythrocyte population.

The most likely causes of normocytic anemia are ACD, renal failure and primitive hematological diseases least frequently. It is rare, but it should be noted that gastric or intestinal lymphoma sometimes presents as mild anemia with nonspecific gastrointestinal symptoms. Soy Brasileno, estudiante de medicina en bolivia. The laboratory tests needed to confirm the diagnosis include serum iron, transferrin, transferrin saturation, ferritin, urea and creatinine.


Guidelines on the diagnosis and management of iron deficiency and anemia in inflammatory bowel diseases. With these key data, the doctor can put in place more specific tests: It is as if the body were trying to make up in blood quantity what it lacks in quality. The advantages anemixs clear if the cause is a cancer that can be diagnosed at an early stage.

Anemia: Pathophysiology, Classification, Clinical Investigation

Hemolytic anemia follows next in order of frequency. Anemia can be classified from three points of view: Hypo-regenerative anemia This is caused by alteration of bone marrow progenitor cells, which can be located at different stages of differentiation and maturation.

Normal serum levels of homocysteine are highly unlikely in folate deficiency[ 21 ]. Laboratory measurement of haptoglobin is fairly easy and cclasificacion useful information to assist in documenting decreased rbc life span. A better alternative is intra-erythrocyte folate, which remains stable during the lifetime anemiae red blood cells and gives a better indication of possible chronic folic acid deficiency.

This is summarized in the next diagram.

By week 8, liver-derived red cells are evident and the liver is the only source of erythrocytes until the 18th week of gestation.
