Effect of iron-deficiency anemia on hormone levels and thermoregulation during cold exposure.


When exposed to an ambient temperature of 4 degrees C, iron-deficient anemic rats become hypothermic. This lesion is related more to anemia than to tissue iron deficiency, since exchange transfusion to hematocrits over 25 restored normal thermoregulatory performance. Likewise poor cold responses were induced in control rats by transfusion to low hematocrits… (More)
