Abstract

Introduction: Helicobacter pylori is a common infectious disease that has numerous side effects. The impact of these infections because of decreased iron absorption in reducing gastric acid secretion and the consequent anemia has been mentioned. In this study, a comparative study concerned with the prevalence of iron deficiency anemia in infected and non-infected persons with Helicobacter pylori in the city of Kashan have been studied. Materials and Methods: The people who were referred to the laboratory to evaluate the antibody IGg were 412 people of whom 229 were infected and 183 were non-infected. 3 ml of blood samples were taken to measure the serum ferritin (SF) and complete blood count (CBC). Results: The mean and standard deviation of competing blood counts based on the status of infection with H. pylori showed that the serum ferritin (SF) in the infected patients was less than the non- infected persons (p =0.04) and this difference based on gender was significant in women (p <0.001). The indices showed that the SF in all age groups of infected persons is Less than non infected persons and this difference in persons over 60 was also significant (p <0.001). Also in the women over 30, the mean of SF in infected persons was less than the non infected persons and this difference was significant (p<0.05). Conclusion: The results showed that the amount of SF of H. pylori infected women especially in those over 30 significantly has decreased that might be due to the impairment of iron absorption in the infected persons.
