Abstract

This study was conducted to identify the role of some blood parameters, levels of some hormones, proteins, and cellular kinetics that have a role in iron transport and storage, in addition to their relationship with each other and with blood and sex parameters for patients with severe and moderate iron deficiency anemia, and to compare the parameters with healthy people. The study period lasted for the period from (December 2020 until March 2021) The presence of iron deficiency anemia was confirmed by examining the blood picture and the criteria of hepcidin and ferritin. The results showed a significant decrease in the in the concentration of hepcidin, ferritin and iron in patients compared to the control group.
