Iron deficiency anaemia is common and affects at least 25% of the world’s population. Generally, it is a condition that evolves over time progressing through stages of iron depletion to iron deficiency and finally anaemia.
The prevalence in Australia in general practice is estimated at 12% and can affect any part of the age spectrum but is most common in women under the age of 50. The presentations can vary and therefore it is imperative that a thorough assessment of the patient is conducted.
Iron can only be repleted with oral or intravenous supplementation, and the outcomes are better with early treatment.
