Objectives The porpose of this study was to esamine the association between iron deficiency and low-level icad poisoning.
Methods Data were callected in an nrban primary care clinic from 3650 children aged 9 to 48 months.
Iron deficiency was defined as a red celt mean corpesecular voluma (MCV) of less than 70 IL and a rod cell distribution width (RDW) of more than 14 5 in children younger than 2 years, and an MCV of less than 73 fL. and RDW of more than 14.5 in those 2 years of Results.
After adjustment fix age, bomoglobin concentration, and insurance status, the odds catios for iron deficiency predicing blood lead levels greater than or equal to 5 mug/ml, and greater than or equal to 10 mug/dL were 1.63 (95% confiderce interval [CI]=1.29,2.04) and 1.44 (95% CI=1.004,2.06).
Iron deficiency is significantly associated with low-level lend poisoning in children aged 9 to 48 months.
