If red blood cell indices indicate a low mean corpuscular hemoglobin or mean corpuscular volume, hemoglobin electrophoresis also should be performed.

To ensure accurate hemoglobin identification, which is essential for genetic counseling, a complete blood count with red blood cell indices should be performed in all women who are currently pregnant to assess not only their risk of anemia but also to allow assessment for risk of a hemoglobinopathy.

The data show that daily dietary supplementation with ragi porridge has a positive effect on hemoglobin levels in adolescent high schools girls. A well planned nutrition education with dietary supplementation is thus recommended for better outcomes. (...) porridge on hematological parameters was evaluated on the intervention group at 45 and 90 days. Both groups were monitored for changes in body mass index and scholastic performance. A statistically significant increase in hemoglobin levels was observed in the intervention group after 90 days (from a mean of 11.3 g% to 12.54 g%; t (29) = 7.514, p < .0001), with no significant changes in the control group.

69. Red blood cell distribution width and ischaemic stroke (PubMed)

Red blood cell distribution width and ischaemic stroke The red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is a measure of red blood cell (RBC) size heterogeneity, which is easily calculated by dividing the SD of erythrocyte volumes for the mean corpuscular volume. Recent reporter suggested that, besides haematological diseases and anaemia, many human disorders may be closely associated with the elevated RDW. A literature review has revealed the RDW may be closely related to the development

with FeBC and FeP in anemic children.In this double-blind study, children aged 1 to 13 years who were diagnosed with IDA were randomly divided into two groups: i) FeBC, supplemented with iron bisglycinate chelate, and ii) FeP, supplemented with polymaltose iron (3.0 mg iron/kg body weight/day for 45 days for both groups).Both treatments resulted in significant increases in hemoglobin levels, Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) and Cell Distribution Width (RDW) and in a reduction of transferrin levels (...) , relative to initial values. However, only FeBC treatment significantly increased ferritin and Mean Corpuscular Hemoglobin (MCH) levels. A significant negative correlation was observed between the increase in ferritin and initial hemoglobin levels in the FeBC group, indicating that the absorption of FeBC is regulated by the body iron demand.These results provide preliminary evidence to suggest a greater efficacy of FeBC than FeP in increasing iron stores.Copyright© Bentham Science Publishers; For any

a randomized controlled trial of long-term weekly iron supplementation in rural Burkina Faso. Malaria parasitaemia was monitored and biomarkers and red cell indices measured at study end-points: plasma ferritin, transferrin receptor (sTfR), zinc protoporphyrin, hepcidin, sTfR/log10 ferritin ratio, body iron, haemoglobin, red cell distribution width; mean corpuscular haemoglobin concentration/volume, and C-reactive protein. Correlation coefficients between biomarkers and red cell indices were determined (...) . A regression correction approach based on ferritin was used to estimate iron body stores, allowing for inflammation. Body iron differences were compared between nulliparae and primigravidae, and the association determined of iron biomarkers and body iron stores with malaria.Iron and haematological indices of 972 nulliparae (mean age 16.5 years) and 314 primigravidae (median gestation 18 weeks) were available.
