CONTEXT Iron deficiency anemia in infants can cause developmental problems. However, the relationship between iron status and cognitive achievement in older children is less clear. OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between iron deficiency and cognitive test scores among a nationally representative sample of school-aged children and adolescents. DESIGN The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey III 1988-1994 provides cross-sectional data for children 6 to 16 years old and… Expand
Iron deficiency, prolonged bottle-feeding, and racial/ethnic disparities in young children.
TLDR
Children with prolonged bottle-feeding and Mexican American children are at higher risk for iron deficiency and Screening practices and nutritional counseling should be targeted at these high-risk groups. Expand
Iron Deficiency in Early Childhood in the United States: Risk Factors and Racial/Ethnic Disparities
TLDR
Hispanic toddlers are more likely than white and black toddlers to be overweight and not in day care, and the higher prevalence of these risk factors among Hispanic toddlers may account for their increased prevalence of iron deficiency. Expand
Effect of iron deficiency anemia on language development in preschool Egyptian children.
TLDR
Ida does not seem to have an effect on language development in preschool Egyptian Children, and no significant differences observed regarding IQ, mental age, receptive, expressive and total language quotients between anemic and non-anemic children. Expand
Effect of Iron Deficiency Anemia on Academic Performance among Primary School Children
TLDR
Anemia due to iron deficiency anemia between children had effect on academic performance impairments and encourage health educational program for parents about children’s nutritional requirements specially iron requirement and frequent blood testing is required. Expand
TO STUDY THE SCHOLASTIC PERFORMANCE IN IRON DEFICIENT SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN
TLDR
The adverse effects on cognitive and educational test performance due to IDA in preschool and school-age children appear more transitory in nature than the effects on development in infants and imply that treatment of IDA through iron supplementation programs may be beneficial and have immediate effects. Expand
Schoolchildren with Learning Difficulties Have Low Iron Status and High Anemia Prevalence
TLDR
In this study, schoolchildren with DIRS had lower hemoglobin and serum ferritin levels when compared to those without, and was statistically associated with a risk of anemia with a weighted OR of 1.62. Expand
Effects of Iron Deficiency on Cognitive Function in School Going Adolescent Females in Rural Area of Central India
TLDR
Scholastic Performance, IQ and Scores of Mental balance, Attention & Concentration, Verbal Memory and Recognition were decreased in iron deficiency girls, both anemic and non anemic as compared to the non iron deficient girls. Expand
Iron Deficiency Anemia in Children
TLDR
The main principles of treatment include investigation and elimination of the underlying cause, iron supplementation, improvement of nutrition, and education of the patient and family. Expand
Prevalence of Iron Deficiency Anemia among Female Elementary School Children in Northern Jeddah, Saudi Arabia
TLDR
It was concluded that iron deficiency anemia is a problem among young girls, especially among those of age 12 years in western region of Saudi Arabia, and it is recommended that the iron-folate supplementation program for pregnant women be expanded to non-pregnant women, including young girls. Expand
The iron status of children and youth in a community mental health clinic is lower than that of a national sample.
TLDR
The ferritin levels of children and youth seen in a mental health clinic sample were significantly lower than those of the same-aged subjects in a national sample, suggesting compromised iron status may be an additional biological risk factor for cognitive, behavioral, and psychiatric problems in pediatric populations served by the community mental health Clinic.

Poorer Behavioral and Developmental Outcome More Than 10 Years After Treatment for Iron Deficiency in Infancy
TLDR
Severe, chronic iron deficiency in infancy identifies children who continue at developmental and behavioral risk >10 years after iron treatment, and these children are identified in increased concerns about anxiety/depression, social problems, and attention problems. Expand
Prevalence of iron deficiency in the United States.
TLDR
Iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia are still relatively common in toddlers, adolescent girls, and women of childbearing age and were more likely in those who are minority, low income, and multiparous. Expand
Iron deficiency anemia and educational achievement.
TLDR
Findings from the present study indicate that iron supplementation among iron-deficient anemic children benefits learning processes as measured by the school achievement test scores. Expand
Iron deficiency anemia and iron therapy effects on infant developmental test performance.
TLDR
Persistent lower scores suggest either that iron therapy adequate for correcting anemia is insufficient to reverse behavioral and developmental disturbances in many infants or that certain ill effects are long-lasting, depending on the timing, severity, or chronicity of iron deficiency anemia in infancy. Expand
Long-term developmental outcome of infants with iron deficiency.
TLDR
Children who have iron-deficiency anemia in infancy are at risk for long-lasting developmental disadvantage as compared with their peers with better iron status. Expand
Iron-deficiency anemia and infant development: effects of extended oral iron therapy.
TLDR
Lower mental test scores persisted in infants with iron-deficiency anemia despite extended oral iron therapy and an excellent hematologic response, according to a double-blind, controlled trial in Costa Rica. Expand
Reversal of developmental delays in iron-deficient anaemic infants treated with iron
TLDR
The poor performance of 12-18-month-old iron-deficient anaemic infants in the Bayley scales of mental and motor development can be improved to the level of performance of iron-sufficient infants by treatment with ferrous sulphate. Expand
Effect of iron therapy on behavior performance in nonanemic, iron-deficient infants.
TLDR
It is concluded that iron deficiency, even in the absence of anemia, results in biochemical alterations that impair behavior in infants. Expand
Iron deficiency anemia: adverse effects on infant psychomotor development.
TLDR
When iron deficiency progresses to anemia, but not before, adverse influences in the performance of developmental tests appear and persist for at least 3 months despite correction of anemia with iron therapy, suggesting prevention of iron deficiency anemia in early infancy becomes the only way to avoid them.

Reticulocyte hemoglobin content to diagnose iron deficiency in children.
TLDR
Reticulocyte Hb content level was the strongest predictor of iron deficiency and iron deficiency anemia in children and holds promise as an alternative to biochemical iron studies in diagnosis. Expand
