Homocysteine and vitamin B12 status and iron deficiency anemia in female university students from Gaza Strip, Palestine.

Sirdah MM, Yassin MM, El Shekhi S, Lubbad AM - Rev Bras Hematol Hemoter (2014)

Bottom Line: The results revealed that 20.4% of the students have iron deficiency anemia.Significantly higher serum homocysteine levels were reported in the iron deficiency anemia group (27.0±4.6μmol/L) compared to normal controls (15.5±2.9μmol/L) and in subjects with microcytic anemia and normal ferritin (18.1±2.7μmol/L).Statistically significant negative correlations were reported for serum homocysteine with serum ferritin, vitamin B12, hemoglobin, and hematocrit levels.

fig0005: Pearson correlation coefficient analysis of homocysteine with vitamin B12 and iron deficiency anemia biomarkers.

Mentions: Analyses using the Pearson correlation coefficient revealed a significant correlation between the serum homocysteine level and other hematological and biochemical parameters as shown in Table 4. Among these important correlations are the negative correlation of homocysteine with vitamin B12 and the IDA biomarkers such as serum ferritin, hemoglobin and hematocrit (Figure 1).
