Iron deficiency anemia: complications

While iron-deficiency anemia is easily managed with diet modification and iron supplements, if left untreated, dangerous complications can arise.

  • Cardiac problems – Because the body detects that the tissues and organs aren’t getting enough oxygen, the heart will compensate by pumping more blood throughout the body. This puts stress on the heart which can cause problems such as cardiomegaly or heart failure.
  • Pregnancy problems – Studies have shown that lack of iron can lead premature births and low birth weight babies.
  • Growth problems – IDA in children can lead to delayed growth and development and make them at risk for infection.
