Abstract


Anemia is a widespread problem among children in many parts of the world, and it is often associated with some trace elements like Iron, Ferritin and other trace elements, Anemia is a global health issue that has significant consequences for individual health and socioeconomic development. The deficiency of Iron and certain trace elements which are not only involved to causing hypochromic microcytic anaemia however also intricate the high absorption of other minerals. Moreover it delayed the many essential metabolic steps like heme biosynthesis. The cross-sectional study was carried out among the 160 students with anemic condition; children’s health status was collected through questionnaire & blood samples. The samples were collected from boys and girls of schools children having age 10-16 years, divided in two age groups. The blood analysis of anemic subjects were carried out, including blood complete picture, serum iron and serum ferritin level. The result reveals that the deficiency of hemoglobin and indices, serum iron and serum ferritin levels clearly declined in anemic groups. It showed that positive correlation between Fe with ferritn, with negative impact on hematological parameters.
