1

What are lab findings for hypoproliferative anemia

Anemias associated with normocytic and normochromic red cells and an inappropriately low reticulocyte response

this includes early iron deficiency anemia

2

Syndrome associated with iron deficiency anemia

Plummer-Vinson Syndrome

Koilonychia
Cheloisis

3

TIBC is _____ in irone deficiency anemia whereas it is usually ______ in anemia of chronic disease

TIBC is high in iron def anemia whereas it is usually low in anemia of chronic disease (check this)

4

Vitamin associated w/ Sideroblastic Anemia

Vitamin B6, cofactor for ALAS needed in heme synthesis

5

Anemia of chronic disease presents as microcytic or normocytic and can lead to iron deficiency, however the lab values differ from iron deficiency in that the TIBC is _______ because _________ and the ferritin is ______

TIBC is low because the acute phase reactants are preventing liver from creating proteins
