Author(s): Dr. Nita Sahi, Dr. Richa Bharatkumar Modi, Dr. Nikita A Pandya and Disha Sahi
Abstract: Background:One of the key laboratory markers for tracking blood glucose levels throughout the previous two to three months is HbA1c. Numerous factors influence HbA1c levels, according to studies, thus this is not the sole test used to diagnose diabetes mellitus. Given the high prevalence of both diabetes mellitus and iron deficiency anaemia, it is necessary to assess how HbA1c affects Iron deficiency anaemia. Numerous elements include pregnancy, nutritional deficits, and haemolytic anaemia.
Methodology: This cross-sectional study, conducted from 2023 to 2024 at Pacific Medical College and Hospital, involved 200 patients aged 30-65 years. Ethical approval was obtained. This study had two groups of participants. Group 1 included diabetic patients with iron deficiency anaemia and group 2 included diabetic patients without iron deficiency anaemia.
Results:There is a noteworthy association observed between iron deficient anaemia and HbA1C. In diabetics with iron deficit anaemia, PCV, MCH, MCHC, and MCV are low, whereas in diabetics without iron deficiency anaemia, they are high. Prior designing treatment plan for iron deficiency anemia in type 2 diabetes mellitus patients, levels of HbA1c levels should be controlled.
Conclusion: Control of Diabetes Mellitus is required to treat Iron Deficiency Anemia.
