The Study of Menstrual and Other Blood Loss, and Consequent Iron Deficiency by Fe$sup 59$ Whole Body Counting

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An established method for determining radioiron absorption by whole body counting was used to study six parous women with hypochromic anemia and menorrhagia, and a seventh nulliparous woman with normal blood values and normal menses. In addition to demonstrating iron deficiency by increased radioiron absorption, the method was found useful in estimating the quantity of blood lost with each menstrual period. As much as 550 ml of menstrual loss was noted in two of the patients studied. Estimates in the patient with normal menses were 59 and 33 ml. Two additional patients demonstrated patierns of blood loss found in continuous ... continued below

As much as 550 ml of menstrual loss was noted in two of the patients studied. Estimates in the patient with normal menses were 59 and 33 ml. Two additional patients demonstrated patierns of blood loss found in continuous gastrointestinal hemorrhage due to hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia, and in severe epistaxis, as further applications of the technique. Where available, the method is to be recommended for routine investigation of hypochromic anemia when episodic or continuous blood loss such as that of menorrhagia is suspected. (auth)
