Iron Deficiency Anemia and Learning Capacity in Children

June 7, 2021 Disease and Health 0

The prevalence of iron deficiency (IDA), which reduces cognitive performance, work performance and durability, in developing and underdeveloped countries is high. Children represent one of the groups most affected for this disorder, leading to decreased cognitiveness, delayed development of psychomotors, changes in behaviour and physical development. Different studies have addressed the association between the IDA and child development, but on this issue there is no consensus. In this context, this review highlights the results of the principal published studies on this topic in an effort to provide all participants in this discussion with insightful comments.
