Iron deficiency is most common nutritional disorder affecting at least one third of world population. Iron is crucial to biologic functions, including respiration, energy production, DNA synthesis, and cell proliferation. Impaired brain development and cognitive, behavioral and psychomotor impairment are worrisome manifestation of iron deficiency. Studies have demonstrated that some of the changes occurring during period of brain growth spurt (<2 years age) may be irreversible. Association of… Expand

Guideline for the laboratory diagnosis of functional iron deficiency
TLDR
One form of FID, found in some subjects treated with erythropoiesis-stimulating agents (ESAs), has been the subject of numerous studies following the widespread use of these agents, especially in subjects with chronic kidney disease (CKD). Expand
Iron deficiency and impaired child development
TLDR
The most worrying association is that between iron deficiency and impaired development in behaviour, cognition, and psychomotor skills. Expand
CLINICOLABORATORY FINDINGS AND TREATMENT OF IRON-DEFICIENCY ANEMIA IN CHILDHOOD
TLDR
Treatment for iron deficiency is based on oral iron salts, which do not have any serious side effects, and further research is needed before they become widely acceptable in clinical practice. Expand
Iron deficiency alters brain development and functioning.

TLDR
The growing body of evidence suggests that brain iron deficiency in early life has multiple consequences in neurochemistry and neurobiology. Expand
Iron and its relation to immunity and infectious disease.
TLDR
The continuing unresolved debate over the interaction of iron and infection indicates a need for quantitative review of clinical morbidity outcomes and a balance must be struck in dose of oral iron and the timing of intervention with respect to age and malaria transmission. Expand

TLDR
Intracellular bacterial killing by polymorphonuclear leucocytes and reduction of nitro-blue tetrazolium were defective in 12 children with iron deficiency anaemia and the abnormalities were corrected quickly by parenteral administration of iron. Expand
Possible effects of antioxidant status on increased platelet aggregation in childhood iron‐deficiency anemia
TLDR
The present study was performed to better understand possible interactions between platelet function and antioxidant status in children with iron‐deficiency anemia. Expand
Iron deficiency in infancy and neurocognitive functioning at 19 years: evidence of long-term deficits in executive function and recognition memory
TLDR
Young adults who had experienced chronic, severe, iron deficiency as infants would exhibit deficits on neurocognitive tests with documented frontostriatal and hippocampal specificity, and it is suggested that these deficits may result from the long-term effects of early iron deficiency on the dopamine system, the hippocampus, and their interaction. Expand
A review of studies on the effect of iron deficiency on cognitive development in children.
TLDR
It remains uncertain whether the poor development of iron-deficient infants is due to poor social backgrounds or irreversible damage or is remediable with iron treatment, and RCT of iron treatment are warranted especially in younger children. Expand
Iron deficiency anemia and the productivity of adult males in Indonesia.
TLDR
The evidence suggests that an increase in the consumption of some local foods whose supply is plentiful, could lead to significant improvement in blood iron status and the benefit cost ratio in terms of latex production alone could be 260:1. Expand
