What is Iron Deficiency Anemia?

Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is a frequent complication among patients that have cancer. An estimated 7% to 42% of patients have Iron Deficiency Anemia.

This condition is caused by having too little iron in the body. This may cause your body to lose the ability to produce enough healthy red blood cells to carry enough oxygen to the tissues in the body.

Discuss with your primary care doctor and request a consultation from one of the HHO physicians!

Possible Complications


IDA is often undertreated and underdiagnosed because some patients may have no symptoms at first, or symptoms may appear as a result from other conditions.
