I've read that food decreases the absorption of iron. How long before eating should I take the pill and is there any other advise I need as it relates to iron absorbtion or any other alternatives to receiving iron?

Classification: Antianemic, iron

Action/Kinetics: The normal daily iron intake for males is 12-20 mg and for females is 8-15 mg, although only about 10% (1-2 mg) of this iron is absorbed. Iron is absorbed from the duodenum and upper jejunum by an active mechanism through the mucosal cells where it combines with the protein transferrin. Iron is stored in the body as hemosiderin or aggregated ferritin which is found in reticuloendothelial cells of the liver, spleen, and bone marrow. About two-thirds of total body iron is in the circulating RBCs in hemoglobin. Absorption is enhanced when stored iron is depleted or when erythropoesis occurs at an increased rate. Food decreases iron absorption by up to two-thirds. The daily loss of iron through urine, sweat, and sloughing of intestinal mucosal cells is 0.5-1 mg in healthy men; in menstruating women, 1-2 mg is the normal daily loss. Least expensive, most effective iron salt for PO therapy. Ferrous sulfate products contain 20% elemental iron, whereas ferrous sulfate dried products contain 30% elemental iron. The exsiccated form is more stable in air.

Uses: Prophylaxis and treatment of iron deficiency and iron-deficiency anemias. Dietary supplement for iron. Optimum therapeutic responses are usually noted within 2-4 weeks. Investigational: Clients receiving epoetin therapy (failure to give iron supplements either IV or PO can impair the hematologic response to epoetin).

Contraindications: Hemosiderosis, hemochromatosis, peptic ulcer, regional enteritis, and ulcerative colitis. Hemolytic anemia, pyridoxine-responsive anemia, and cirrhosis of the liver. Use in those with normal iron balance.

Special Concerns: Allergic reactions may result due to certain products containing tartrazine and some products containing sulfites.

Side Effects: GI: Constipation, gastric irritation, nausea, abdominal cramps, anorexia, vomiting, diarrhea, dark-colored stools. These effects may be minimized by administering preparations as a coated tablet. Soluble iron preparations may stain the teeth.

Laboratory Test Alterations: Iron may affect electrolyte balance determinations.

Overdose Management: Symptoms: Symptoms occur in four stages--(1) Lethargy, N&V, abdominal pain, weak and rapid pulse, tarry stools, dehydration, acidosis, hypotension, and coma within 1-6 hr. (2) If client survives, symptoms subside for about 24 hr. (3) Within 24-48 hr symptoms return with diffuse vascular congestion, shock, pulmonary edema, acidosis, seizures, anuria, hyperthermia, and death. (4) If client survives, pyloric or antral stenosis, hepatic cirrhosis, and CNS damage are seen within 2-6 weeks. Toxic reactions are more likely to occur after parenteral administration. Treatment (Iron Toxicity): General supportive measures. Maintain a patent airway, respiration, and circulation. Induce vomiting with syrup of ipecac followed by gastric lavage using tepid water or 1%-5% sodium bicarbonate (to convert from ferrous sulfate to ferrous carbonate, which is poorly absorbed and less irritating). Saline cathartics can also be used. Deferoxamine is indicated for clients with serum iron levels greater than 300 mg/dL. Deferoxamine is usually given IM, but in severe cases of poisoning it may be given IV. Hydration should be maintained. It may be necessary to treat for shock, acidosis, renal failure, and seizures.

Drug Interactions: Antacids, oral / Iron absorption from GI tract Ascorbic acid / Ascorbic acid, 200 mg or more, iron absorption Chloramphenicol / Serum iron levels Cholestyramine / Iron absoprtion from GI tract Cimetidine / Iron absorption from GI tract Fluoroquinolones / Fluoroquinolone absorption from GI tract R/T formation of a ferric ion-quinolone complex Levodopa / Levodopa absorption R/T formation of chelates with iron salts Levothyroxine / Levothyroxine efficacy Methyldopa / Methyldopa absorption from GI tract Pancreatic extracts / Iron absorption from GI tract Penicillamine / Penicillamine absorption from GI tract due to chelation St. John's wort / May absorption of iron Tetracyclines / Absorption of both tetracyclines and iron from GI tract Vitamin E / Response to iron therapy

Their respective ratings in Best's Insurance Reports and other reporting Quotes Chimp. Remember, Best's is in your local library, but your agent should have a copy in his or her office as well. If two are A + + or A + companies and one is a B, chances are you will not want to choose the lower-rated one. Of course, nothing is absolute. Sometimes a lower-rated company will give you a better buy or benefits. In such cases just be sure that the extras you receive are worth the potential risk of choosing an insurance company that is less financially secure.

Very good blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost on everything. Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely confused .. Any tips? Thanks!

I'm amazed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's equally educative and amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.

Can I simply say what a comfort to find an individual who actually understands what they're talking about on the internet. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people really need to look at this and understand this side of your story. It's surprising you're not more popular since you surely have the gift.
