The incidence of iron deficiency in pregnant white women in Johannesburg

, : The incidence of iron deficiency in pregnant white women in Johannesburg. South African Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology 11(1): 11-14

The Fe status of 313 white primiparae attending an antenatal clinic in Johannesburg for the first time was examined. Mean Hb value in the first trimester was 14.5 and in the third trimester 12.5 g/100 ml. Only 14 patients had less than 11 g/100 ml in the second and third trimesters; most of those 14 were deficient in Fe and 3 had thalassaemia minor. Mean serum Fe in the first trimester was 150 and in the third trimester 100 pg/100 ml.
