Abstract

Introduction: Iron deficiency anemia (IDA) is a major public health problem in world and India too. It has been found that HbA1c level rise in patients of IDA without raised blood glucose level.
Materials and Methods: Study consists of 30 cases of Iron deficiency anemia and 30 controls of age and sex match between the ages of 18 to 60 years. This is a prospective case controlled study done over a period of two years. Blood samples were collected from subjects and HbA1C, Serum iron, TIBC, Serum ferritin, Blood glucose level and Hematological parameters were measured.
Observations and Result: Serum iron and Ferritin levels were highly significantly decreased (p<0.001) in IDA group patients compared to controls. TIBC levels were highly significantly increased (p<0.001) in IDA group patients compared to control. HbA1c levels were also highly significantly increased (p<0.001) in IDA group patients compared to control. Mean BSL-F and BSL-PP showed no significant difference in glycemic status of both case and control groups.
Conclusion: Apart from blood glucose, iron deficiency anaemia also affects HbA1c level.

Keywords: HbA1c, Iron deficiency anemia, Serum iron, Serum ferritin, TIBC.
